More TTC service improvements coming this Sunday
The TTC will increase service frequency and improve service reliability on 17 additional routes this coming Sun., Mar. 27.
This follows improvements to 17 routes announced in February and comes in advance of additional service increases in May.
“Thank you to our TTC workers providing a safe and reliable ride for everyone, including more and more riders returning to the office as we reopen,” said Mayor John Tory. “We are proud to support the TTC as it works to return service to pre-pandemic levels this year. This is all part of the work we are doing to make sure Toronto comes back stronger than ever.”
“The TTC is continuing to closely monitor ridership and increase service levels on our busiest routes. We look forward to welcoming back more transit riders over the coming weeks and months as our City reopens,” said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson. “In addition to the various safety measures we have in place, I would like to remind all riders that masks continue to be mandatory on the TTC.”
“Through the ongoing support of the TTC Board and City Council, this year’s approved operating budget allows us to restore 100 per cent of pre-pandemic service hours over the coming months, in line with ridership increases,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “Our schedules and service will continue to be guided by customer demand to ensure we are meeting our customers’ needs.”
Throughout the pandemic, the TTC has focused on delivering service based on demand – prioritizing and protecting service on the busiest routes at the busiest times of day.
