Significant TTC service changes coming June 18 to accommodate east-end construction projects

Beginning Sun., June 18, several construction projects in the east end of the City will impact TTC bus and streetcar service. The TTC is working hard to ensure that customers have as many options as possible to get to and from their destinations.


“While this work is important, we appreciate that it is inconvenient for customers who rely on the TTC to get them safely to their destinations,” said TTC Chair Jon Burnside. “I want to thank the TTC teams who have been working hard to ensure that there are alternative routes available for customers, and who will be monitoring service on the routes and making adjustments as needed.”


“We know that construction and route diversions can be challenging for our customers,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “That’s why we are working to ensure that customers are aware of the diversions, and can utilize alternate routes to get to their destinations. Customers can expect to see clear signage at the impacted stations, dedicated TTC staff members on hand to answer questions, and information on our website and social media channels.”


The following stations/routes will be impacted:


Broadview Station


Beginning June 18 until approximately November 2023, work will be underway to upgrade the streetcar tracks and overhead power on Broadview Ave. from Danforth Ave. to Gerrard St. E. This is the next phase of a coordinated project between the City of Toronto, Toronto Water, and the TTC to renew and upgrade important infrastructure on Broadview Ave. Toronto Water has just completed their work. The City of Toronto will complete planned road resurfacing and sidewalk repairs after TTC track work is complete later this summer.


Broadview Station will remain open during this period, and subway service will be unaffected. There will be no bus or streetcar service on Broadview Ave. between Broadview Station and Gerrard St. E. during construction as vehicular access on Broadview Ave. will be restricted to northbound-only traffic and the remaining lane is too narrow for safe bus operation.


The following service changes will be required:


  • There will be no 504/304 King or 505 Dundas service at Broadview Station, and between Sumach St. and Broadview Station. Customers can take the 72A Pape from Pape Station to King St. E. and Parliament St. to connect to a 504 King streetcar. The 304 King bus will be extended to Pape Station.


  • 72A Pape will be extended to King St. E. and Parliament St. from Pape Station. Service along this route will be increased for frequent travel between King St. and Parliament St. and Pape Station.


  • The 100 Flemingdon Park will divert from Broadview Station to Pape Station and continue south to the King and Parliament intersection.


  • The 8 Broadview, 62 Mortimer and 87 Cosburn will continue to service the station.


  • The 8 Broadview route will also be extended to Warden Station via O’Connor Dr. and St Clair Ave. E., replacing the 70C Coxwell route.

Coxwell Station


Construction at the Lower Gerrard and Coxwell intersection to replace aging streetcar tracks will require a full intersection closure. This follows the completion of Toronto Water infrastructure renewal under the intersection that began earlier this year. The following routes will be affected:


  • 22 Coxwell bus service will be temporarily suspended. The 31 Greenwood, which currently operates to/from Coxwell Station, will be extended to Coxwell Ave. and Queen St. Service on the 31 Greenwood will be increased.


  • The 322 Coxwell Blue Night bus will temporarily divert via Danforth Ave., Greenwood Ave., and Queen St. E.


  • 506C Carlton replacement buses will detour via Greenwood Ave., Danforth Ave., and Coxwell Ave., serving Greenwood and Coxwell stations on street.


  • The 8 Broadview will replace the 70C Coxwell service. Customers travelling to/from St. Clair Ave. E. should transfer to the 8 Broadview at O’Connor Dr. and St. Clair Ave. or board 8 Broadview buses from Broadview Station or Warden Station.


  • There will be no service on Coxwell Ave. between Upper Gerrard St. E. and Queen St. E. as well as on Gerrard St. E. between Greenwood Ave. and Coxwell Ave.

Main Street Station


The bus/streetcar loop at Main Street Station remains closed for critical structural rehabilitation work until September 2023. The following service changes are in effect:


  • 20 Cliffside is turning back at Victoria Park Station via Victoria Park Ave.


  • 23 Dawes has been extended and terminates/turns back using on-street looping via Eastdale Ave.


  • 62 Mortimer is extended from Main St. to Victoria Park Station. Customers can use Line 2 or 62 Mortimer between Main Street and Victoria Park stations.


  • 506C Carlton replacement buses are operating between Castle Frank Station and Victoria Park Station.
