71 Runnymede - Route change - Junction Area Study
Effective: October 13, 2019
This route will change as part of the implementation of the improvements from the Junction Area Study. All service on this route will operate between Runnymede Station and Industry Street. Service north of St Clair will operate approximately every 10 to 15 minutes in all periods except late evening, which operates approximately every 20 minutes.
Service along St Clair Avenue West previously operated by the 71A (Runnymede Stn-Gunns Loop) branch will be replaced by a new 189 Stockyards service that operates continuously along St Clair Avenue West to provide customers with better connections. The 189 Stockyards will operate from High Park Station and Keele Station, and along St Clair Avenue West between Keele Street and Scarlett Road.
Schedules will also be revised, Monday to Friday, to improve service reliability. Service levels and trip times will change throughout the day.
Temporary route change – Runnymede Station Easier Access construction
Service on this route will also be temporarily interlined with the 77 SWANSEA to accommodate Easier Access construction at Runnymede Station. The bus terminal will close and this route will interline with the 77 SWANSEA and operate continuously through Bloor Street West on Runnymede Avenue.
This change is necessary in order to construct a new elevator between street level and the subway concourse. Construction is scheduled to be complete in late 2020. Find out more about TTC’s Easier Access program at Runnymede Station at http://www.ttc.ca/projects.
TTC thanks our customers for their patience as we work to make transit more accessible.
