TTC seeks rider feedback on priority bus lanes along Jane and Eglinton

Aug 26 2020, 7:45 pm

The TTC is asking for the public’s input on its plans to speed up service along two of Toronto’s busiest bus routes.

The transit provider is looking to implement priority bus-only lanes along Eglinton Avenue East and Jane Street to improve service for riders as part of the RapidTO program.

“This will ensure that more residents have access to reliable, rapid transit so they have greater access to jobs, healthcare, and community services,” Mayor John Tory said in a news release.

“I encourage riders to provide feedback and recommendations for the our new RapidTO program so that we can make sure it meet the needs of all those who rely on these routes.”

In 2019, the TTC identified five of its busiest routes in need of better service. Together, the routes had a combined pre-coronavirus ridership of 220,000 passengers per weekday.

The Eglinton Avenue bus link between Kennedy Subway Station and the University of Toronto’s Scarborough campus was the busiest, followed by Jane Street from Eglinton to Steeles Avenues.

The TTC has surveys for each route on its website, and is asking for input from people who use the bus routes.

The surveys will remain open until September 30, 2020.
