Toronto transit users already appear in love with King Street Pilot Project

If you were downtown this weekend, you would have noticed some significant changes to King Street, as the city’s one-year Pilot Project officially kicked off.

The project is intended to change the way cars travel on King Street, which is the busiest surface transit route in the city, specifically between Bathurst and Jarvis, with some 65,000 transit users commuting daily.

People and transit will now be given first priority, by improving transit reliability, speed, and capacity.

Today marked the first official morning commute with the new set of traffic restrictions in place and it’s safe to say that transit users loved their shorter and faster commute.

Drivers, on the other hand, weren’t as welcoming of the new changes and continued to drive down King despite police warnings.

Const. Clint Stibbe said it best, drivers need to get with the program and follow the new rules. Once this happens, everyone will be able to travel down King more efficiently.
