York Boulevard Bus Lane Closure: TTC, GO and York University Buses Diverting, March 22 – August 22, 2016

March 18, 2016

TTC, GO Transit and York University buses will begin diverting on a detour starting on the early morning of Tuesday, March 22, 2016. The outbound bus lane on York Boulevard will be closed to allow for various subway station construction activities including; the permanent reinstatement of York Boulevard in both directions, installation of site utilities and completion of a firefighter shaft. York Boulevard transit access will reopen to the Harry W. Arthurs Common on Monday, August 22, 2016.

Due to the bus diversion, increased traffic congestion may occur along this route resulting in transit delays during peak times on The Pond Road, Ian Macdonald Boulevard, Sentinel Road and Keele Street.  Your patience is greatly appreciated.
