Beginning January 11, 2021, the TTC will divert 53B Steeles East service to Passmore Avenue and Morningside Avenue to directly serve the Amazon Fulfillment Centre. Service adjustments will be as follows:

  • The last trip departing the Amazon Fulfillment Centre is at approximately 2 a.m.

On Saturdays:

  • The first trip from Finch Station will arrive at the Amazon Fulfillment Centre at approximately 6:35 a.m.
  • Service will operate every 20 minutes in the early morning, every 5 to 10 minutes during the day, and every 20 minutes after 10 p.m.

Trip planning will not be available at this time, but will be available starting March 28.

Additionally, to meet early morning shift start times at the facility, the TTC will operate extra trips to connect customers on the 353 Steeles East overnight service to the Amazon facility. These extra trips will run from 4 a.m. to 6 a.m., and will connect with eastbound 353 Steeles East trips at Tapscott Road and Steeles. These trips will reduce customer travel time to the facility and improve pedestrian safety in the area. These extra trips will not be available for trip planning.
