All-night TTC bus and streetcar service will see increases this fall

9/11/15 6:00 AM

Our great city continues to grow and your TTC is working hard to keep up with surging demand for public transit.

Last Sunday, we rolled out a series of service improvements on many bus and streetcar routes to make the TTC more convenient, faster and less crowded.

What is not commonly realized is that it is off-peak and evening ridership that is driving our ever-increasing customer numbers. In 2015, we expect to carry a record 545 million customers and, while peak-hour ridership is up, demand outside the rush hours is showing the strongest growth.

One of the key elements of this package of service improvements is to the Blue Night Network, the bus and streetcar routes that keep Toronto moving overnight. In the largest expansion of TTC overnight service since the 1980s, 12 Blue Night routes are being added or revised, bringing the total of overnight routes to 31. Ninety-nine per cent of Toronto residents now live within a 15-minute walk of overnight bus and streetcar service.

This extra night service will be invaluable for the many Torontonians that work night shifts, as well as to late-night revelers that need a reliable ride home.

By adding this, and many other service improvements, the TTC continues to rise to the challenge of keeping Toronto moving, 24 hours a day.
