TTC service changes
Several changes have been scheduled to take effect on September 6, 2020 as TTC service continues to operate at reduced levels. A significant proportion of service will continue to operate as demand-responsive service to provide flexibility to adjust to largely unknown conditions and travel demands. Adjustments to service will continue through fall 2020 and early 2021 as the City continues its reopening and recovery due to COVID-19.
