TTC increasing service on several routes in advance of busy summer season

Starting Sunday, May 7, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is increasing service on several routes in the city to keep up with the summer season's busy ridership along major corridors. 

Some of the adjustments being made include reduced wait times on overnight routes along Finch Avenue, Jane Street, and Wilson Avenue from the current 30 minutes to every 20 minutes instead. 

The transit service is also enhancing service on the Markham Road corridor, which is one of the city's busiest, by extending service on the 902 Markham Rd. Express to connect to high-traffic employment areas at Morningside and Steeles avenues.

The TTC will also be launching seasonal routes to top-visited parks and attractions like Cherry Beach, Bluffer's Park, High Park, and the Toronto Zoo. 

According to the update, Service on Line 1 will be adjusted at all times of the day to align schedules with ridership demands as well. 

As the Ontario Line construction begins on Queen Street, the transit service will also be operating 501 Queen streetcars and 501B Queen replacement buses every 10 minutes or sooner to keep up with the flow of commuters. 

The new bus route, 501B Queen, will run on Queen Street between Bathurst Street and Broadview Avenue and will divert via Bay Street, Richmond/King Street East and West, and Church Street.
