With the 43rd-edition of the Toronto International Film Festival just days away, the TTC has announced a series of streetcar diversions during the festival.
From Thursday, September, 6 until Monday, September 10, the TTC’s 504/304 King and 514 Cherry streetcar routes will divert around a road closure on King Street for this year’s Festival Street.
Routes will run as follows:
- 504 King/514 Cherry/304 King (night): Service will divert via Queen Street between Spadina Avenue and Church Street (eastbound) and between York Street and Spadina Avenue (westbound).
- The 304 King night shuttle service: Service will be available from 2 am to 6 am between Parliament Street and Bathurst Street.
The road closure on King Street will also necessitate changes to designated Wheel-Trans meeting spots in the area. Customers will be advised of the new locations when booking trips within the area.
Regular TTC service resumes at 5 am on Monday, September 10 but due to red carpet events on King Street, brief service diversions will be necessary.
Red carpet diversions on King Street:
- September 10: From 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm, and 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
- September 11: From 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm and 8 pm to 9 pm.
Throughout TIFF, the TTC will have identifiable staff positioned at key locations to assist customers and provide information about transit options.
