Construction Heads Up Part 9: Temporary Route Change

29 Oct

People getting onto a bus.

We’ve got an important upcoming route change to report to you guys!

Beginning November 5th, the next phase of the Revitalization Project will begin. It is at this time that ONLY WESTBOUND TRAFFIC will be moving between Bay Street and Lower Spadina Avenue. This will require a diversion to Eastbound buses on the 509 Harbourfront  route:

  • From Exhibition Loop, Eastbound 509 Replacement buses run East on Fleet Street, diverting South on Fort York Boulevard, East on Lake Shore Boulevard/ Harbour Street serving temporary stops at Stadium Road, Bathurst Street, Dan Leckie Way, Spadina Avenue, Simco Street and on Bay Street (buses do not stop at Rees Street). Buses continue North on Bay Street (stopping outside Union Station), East on Adelaid Street and South on Yonge to King Street (stopping outside King Station). A paper transfer is required at both Union and King stations.
  • From King Station, Westbound 509 replacement buses run South on Yonge Street, West on Wellington Street, South on Bay Street, West on Queens Quay (serving all Westbound stops), North on Bathurst Street, West on Lake Shore Boulevard, North on Fort York Boulevard and West on Fleet Street to Exhibition Loop.

Please note that the 510 Spadina bus service will continue to operate between Queens Quay and Spadina Loop and Spadina Station bus platform.

Make sense?
We hope so.  But if things are still a little fuzzy and you’re looking for a way to get to the museum, be sure to check out other blogs for some handy walking directions.

You can also visit the Waterfront site to learn more about the Revitalization project or the TTC site for more  route info.
