From Thurs., Sept. 6 until Mon., Sept.10, the TTC's 504/304 King and 514 Cherry streetcar routes will divert around a road closure on King St. as Toronto welcomes the world to the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Routes will run as follows:
504 King/514 Cherry/304 King (night): Service will divert via Queen St. between Spadina Ave. and Church St. (eastbound) and between York St. and Spadina Ave. (westbound).
The 304 King night shuttle service will be available from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. between Parliament St. and Bathurst St.
The road closure on King St. will also necessitate changes to designated Wheel-Trans meeting spots in the area. Customers will be advised of the new locations when booking trips within the area.
Regular TTC service resumes at 5 a.m. on Mon., Sept.10 but due to red carpet events on King St., brief service diversions will be necessary on Sept. 10 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and on Sept. 11 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Throughout TIFF, the TTC will have identifiable staff positioned at key locations to assist customers and provide information about transit options.
To ensure customers are aware of changes to their routes, the TTC and City of Toronto are communicating through a number of channels including: web-based communications and social media, paid advertising, paper notices, station signage and announcements.
The TTC thanks customers for their patience during TIFF, an event that benefits Toronto's economy and international reputation as a world-class city.
The TTC and TIFF are partnering to deliver special exclusive promotions during the festival. Information is available at https://bit.ly/2wHzu5R
