TTC launching new bus service in Scarborough (MAP)

Jul 30 2018, 1:31 pm

A new bus service is coming to Toronto’s east end.

Starting on October 9, 2018, the TTC will introduce the new 12D Kingston Road bus service that will operate from Victoria Park Station to the University of Toronto Scarborough campus as a one-year pilot.

According to the TTC, the new service will “improve connectivity between neighbourhoods and key destinations” along major corridors, including Lawrence Avenue East, Morningside Avenue and Kingston Road.

The weekday service will operate Monday through Friday from 6 am to 9 am, approximately every 30 minutes, and between 3 pm and 7 pm, approximately every 25 minutes.

During the pilot, TTC staff will monitor and adjust service as demand and operating conditions required to ensure route performance is maximized.

Following one-year of operation, TTC staff will evaluate the ridership to determine whether to make the service permanent, extend the pilot period with modifications to service, or cancel the service.

The new 12D Kingston Rd. route is shown below.
