Over the last year, Councillor Gary Crawford has been working diligently with Parks, Forestry and Recreation and the TTC to bring safe, public access to the Scarborough Bluffs. This past January, the TTC Board approved the bus service as a trial to improve public access to the area. A follow-up report assessing the service will be presented to the Board in December. The 175 Bluffer’s Park buses will serve all stops along the new route, providing connections to other bus routes along the way (9 Bellamy, 16 McCowan, 21 Brimley, 86 Scarborough, 102 Markham Rd, 116 Morningside, 131 Nugget and 198 U of T Scarborough Rocket).
