176 Mimico GO Shuttle Bus Pilot

The 176 Mimico GO shuttle pilot has begun operation to help residents of Humber Bay Shores get to the Mimico GO station without having to drive. The service runs every 30 minutes from approximately 5:30AM to 9:00 AM and from 3:00PM to 7:30PM, and is timed to meet the GO train schedule.

I asked the TTC to look at the possibility of extending the route further east beyond Park Lawn in order to allow for a more convenient way for eastern residents of Humber Bay Shores to use this service. The TTC investigated the possible routes for this, but ultimately decided that this would prevent reliably connecting riders in time to catch the GO train. That being said, this pilot project has only just begun operation and the TTC will continually assess the route and make improvements and adjustments where necessary.

This route accepts regular TTC fare and PRESTO. Adults can save $1.50, and students and seniors can save $0.55 when combining your TTC trip with GO using PRESTO. Customers that are continuing their one-way trip on the TTC after using the GO train can use the TTC transfer from their first die to board the second vehicle.

Letter to TTC Chair Josh Colle Re: 66B Prince Edward Bus Service Increase

After speaking with the with riders and the TTC route supervisor for the 66B Prince Edward bus about concerns regarding overcrowding during the morning and afternoon rush hours, myself and Councillor Di Ciano wrote a letter to the TTC Chair Josh Colle to ask for action to remedy this situation. 

I have since been informed by TTC CEO Rick Leary that beginning September 4th, 2018 service frequency will be increased on the 66B Prince Edward from every 12 minutes to every 10 minutes in the peak periods to help reduce crowding.
