Transit Planning documents and reports
The TTC has two major objectives in planning its transit services:
- To maximise mobility within the City of Toronto by ensuring that public transit is provided in the right places, at the right times, to satisfy the changing travel needs within the community.
- To ensure that all transit services operated by the TTC are as efficient and cost-effective as possible and, therefore, affordable to both TTC customers and taxpayers.
In order to fulfil these objectives, the TTC undertakes a range of transit planning activities, governed by the service standards which have been adopted by the Commission. The service standards are a systematic and objective means of planning, monitoring, adjusting, and evaluating transit services throughout Toronto. The standards provide a mechanism for measuring the tradeoffs between the benefits achieved by providing more service in one location, the inconvenience caused by removing it from another, and the costs of providing those services.
