TTC releases explainer video on upcoming east-end service changes

Beginning Sun., June 18, there will be significant impacts to TTC bus and streetcar service in the east end of the City due to construction projects in the area. To further assist customers in getting to and from their destinations safely, the TTC has created a detailed explainer video on the service changes, as well as alternate options for customers.


The video can be viewed on the TTC’s YouTube channel at:, as well as on and the TTC’s social media channels.


Work to upgrade the streetcar tracks and overhead power on Broadview Ave. will result in significant changes to bus and streetcar service at Broadview Station, while construction at the Lower Gerrard and Coxwell intersection to replace aging streetcar tracks will require a full intersection closure.


This construction on Broadview Ave. 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 504 King or 505 Dundas 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.


TTC staff are also on-hand at Broadview and Coxwell stations to advise customers of the upcoming changes, as well as alternate routes. For more information, customers are encouraged to visit or
