Service adjustments for TIFF begin tomorrow

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) returns to the city starting tomorrow, Sept. 7, with some TTC services being impacted. Street celebrations will result in the closure of King St. W. between Peter St. and University Ave., from Thurs., Sept. 7 to Mon., Sept. 11.


During this closure, the 504 King and 304 King routes will be diverting. King streetcars will not operate between Church St. and Spadina Ave. Customers should transfer between streetcars and replacement buses on King St. E. between Church St. and Jarvis St., and on King St. W. between Bathurst St. and Spadina Ave.


Replacement buses will operate westbound on King St. E., north on University Ave., west on Richmond St. W., south on Spadina Ave., and west on King St. W.


Eastbound replacement buses will operate north on Spadina Ave., east on Adelaide St. W., south on University Ave., and east on King St.


Throughout TIFF, the TTC will have identifiable staff positioned at key locations to assist customers and provide information about transit options.


Regular TTC service will resume at 5 a.m. on Mon., Sept. 11. Due to red carpet events on King St., service diversions will be necessary on Mon., Sept. 11 and Tues., Sept. 12 from 3:30 to 9:30 p.m.


Red carpet events will also be held from Sept. 13 to 16. The TTC has worked with TIFF to ensure diversions are not required, but customers may experience minor delays during this period.


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 is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that affect service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for e-Alerts.
