It’s a busy weekend in Toronto, with tons of activities, events and concerts happening in the downtown core and in the surrounding areas. Some of the activities affect the streets and, as a result, the TTC lines. With the seemingly never-ending stream of construction across the city, TTC route changes can be frustrating. Of course, with all of the plans come a lot of route alterations and changes. Read on to find out which lines are affected in the city this weekend.
These TTC routes will experience changes
This weekend, the TTC’s 510/310 Spadina streetcars will head to Bathurst Station on a route along Dundas Street West and Bathurst Street in both directions. Instead, the northbound route will offer a replacement bus on Spadina Avenue that stops at Beverley Street, Dundas Street West, Spadina Avenue and Spadina Station. The southbound route stops at Spadina Avenue, Queen Street West and Beverley Street.
In an effort to make commutes easier, the Yonge-University line will have increased service in both directions beginning November 20th. Subways will come more frequently at peak hours and in rush hour Mondays through Fridays to make the commute easier. It means that service decreases in the early evening after rush hour, but it will also increase on Saturday nights and on Sundays.
Several roads and TTC routes will be affected and not run because of the Santa Claus Parade on November 20th, beginning at 12:30 p.m. Routes like 72 Pape, 161 Rogers Road, and 13 Avenue Road will all be affected by road closures.
