Community bus picking up customer   Man on street

TTC’s Community Bus service connects customers to a variety of popular destinations along a unique neighbourhood route. It stops at the front-door of various buildings and landmarks, including local shops, community centres, health care facilities and seniors’ residences. While Community Bus uses the same type of vehicles that Wheel-Trans customers are used to, this service is for everyone.

  • It’s flexible. There is no need to book your trip; this bus runs on a schedule.
  • It’s friendly. These buses are fully accessible and our operators are helpful.
  • It’s convenient. We serve regular stops, and can be flagged down at any spot along the route.
  • It’s simple. Anyone can ride a Community Bus with their TTC fare.

Community Bus routes: 400 Lawrence Manor; 402 Parkdale; 403 Don Mills South; 404 East York; and 405 Etobicoke. See schedules.

Community Bus Pilot

Beginning September 5, 2017 TTC will run a nine-month Community Bus Pilot to test service enhancements along two routes – 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York. The buses operating along the pilot routes will run hourly and stop at additional destinations. This project aims to increase ridership, by providing customers with a more convenient and accessible travel option for getting around their neighbourhood easily.

Route Changes

While Community Bus will travel along an extended route during the Pilot, there will be a few small parts of the old routes that will no longer be serviced. These changes were made only along streets where no passengers, or very few, got on the bus; and where there are other accessible conventional buses running nearby.  Here is a list of areas no longer served and alternative buses nearby: 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York.

Route changes along 400 Lawrence Manor and 404 East York will remain in effect until a full assessment of the Pilot is complete in mid-2018.
