TTC to reduce bus service this year



The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is planning new service reduction changes that will increase wait times for customers on several bus routes by up to 11 minutes.


The changes are outlined in a letter from the Director of Strategy and Customer Service to the TTC Board of Directors, and will affect nearly 40 bus lines as of March 26.


The first phase of the TTC's 2023 Service Alignment will adjust service on approximately 20% of routes, while 80% will remain unchanged or be temporarily adjusted.


The changes will result in service adjustments on 37 daytime routes and two nighttime routes in 327 operating periods.


Of the daytime routes, customers on two routes will have shorter wait times in some periods of the day, customers on 24 routes will have shorter wait times in some periods and longer wait times in others, and customers on 11 routes will have longer wait times.



Esto significa que el 18% de los cambios de horario acortarán el tiempo de espera, el 52% lo alargarán hasta tres minutos y el 8% entre tres y once minutos.


Los ajustes de servicio se han realizado para reanudar los niveles de capacidad de vehículos en hora punta anteriores al cierre, ajustar los niveles de capacidad de vehículos fuera de hora punta y ajustar los niveles de servicio mínimo en los servicios de metro a cada ocho minutos o más.


"Los cambios previstos tienen un impacto proporcionalmente menor en el servicio de autobús, que ha seguido teniendo un mayor nivel de retención de pasajeros que otros modos", dice la carta. "Esto refleja la prioridad del TTC de minimizar los impactos en las comunidades que merecen equidad y que tienen una mayor dependencia del servicio de autobús fiable y frecuente".


Bus routes most affected by service adjustments


122-Graydon Hall/Monday-Friday - 11 minutes.

905-Eglinton East Express/Saturday/Afternoon - 7 minutes.

905-Eglinton East Express/Monday-Friday/Morning - 6 minutes 45 seconds.

9-Bellamy/Early afternoon/Saturday - 6 minutes.

A second phase of service adjustments will take place on May 7, but the list of changes is not currently available.
