TTC restoring streetcar service to Humber Loop, improving west-end service from Sunday

Starting this Sun., Oct. 29, the TTC is restoring 501 Queen streetcar service west of Roncesvalles Ave. to Humber Loop, following completion of major infrastructure upgrades by the City of Toronto and the TTC in the King St. W., Queen St. W., Queensway, and Roncesvalles Ave. (KQQR) intersection area.


Beginning at the start of service on Sunday morning, it will be the first time since January 2021 that streetcars are operating along The Queensway, including to stops at Glendale Ave. providing direct access to St. Joseph’s Hospital.


501L Queen replacement buses will continue to operate both ways between Long Branch Loop and Humber Loop, via Lake Shore Blvd., Park Lawn Rd. and The Queensway. Customers can transfer between buses and streetcars at Humber Loop.


Additional streetcar service through to Long Branch Loop is scheduled to return on Sun., Nov. 19.


301 Queen buses will continue to operate between Long Branch Loop and Neville Park Loop in overnight periods, 7 days a week.


Additional service to Humber Bay Shores Neighbourhood


Also from Sunday, new 501M Queen replacement buses will operate both ways from Humber Loop to north Park Lawn Rd. via Lake Shore Blvd., Marine Parade Dr., Park Lawn Rd. and The Queensway, to provide additional service through the Humber Bay Shores Neighbourhood.


Customers at stops on Lake Shore Boulevard east of Park Lawn Rd. can board 501H/M Queen buses to access 501A Queen streetcars at Humber Loop, or access streetcars directly via walking through the tunnel leading to the loop.


508 Lake Shore service returns Monday


Starting Mon., Oct. 30, 508 Lake Shore streetcars will return to weekday peak-hour service, operating between Long Branch Loop and Parliament St. via King St. These streetcars will provide customers with direct downtown service without having to transfer vehicles at Humber Loop.


Morning peak period trips will be scheduled to depart from Long Branch Loop approximately every 20 minutes starting at 6:40 a.m. through 8:10 a.m.  Afternoon peak period trips will be scheduled to depart from King Station every 20 minutes from approximately 4:25 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
