The TTC has expanded its network of express buses, making it easier for you to move across the city – as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Starting in September and October, we’re introducing six new express routes and making improvements throughout the network.

These changes are part of a plan to address overcrowding on Line 1 and over 30 bus routes. Learn more about the fall 2018 capacity improvements.

Express Network

Easy. Expanded. Express.

You can identify an Express Network route by looking for green route number "lozenges" on TTC stop markers, maps and signs throughout the city.

On stop markers, you’ll also find a badge indicating that a stop is served by an Express Network route.
