The TTC is increasing service at peak times and improving service reliability on many bus routes, which started yesterday on Sun., Feb. 14 as part of Toronto City Council’s $95 million investment in TTC service announced last year.

"These service improvements are the type of sensible and caring investments expected by Toronto residents. We need a reliable transit system so people can get to work on time and get home faster to spend more time with their families,” said Mayor John Tory.

“This year we will continue to make bus service on many of our routes more frequent and reliable,”said TTC Chair Josh Colle. “Customers will notice this enhanced service with reduced crowding during rush hour, helping to make your bus ride a more comfortable experience.”
