“The Better Way Gets Better,” yesterday’s TTC press release proclaimed, teasing the media for today’s big announcement of service changes. And, really, it’d be hard to disagree.
As anticipated, today at the TTC’s Arrow Road Garage, David Miller and Adam Giambrone announced a fleet of changes to the TTC’s fleet of bus and streetcar routes, designed to decrease crowding and increase service across the system: 75 bus and the Queen, King, and Carlton streetcar routes are all getting increased service at various times. All of the changes––some of them drastic, and some of them minor––will be rolled out next week.
The complete, detailed list of changes can be found on the TTC’s website. Steve Munro has done his usual TTC wizardry and condensed all of the information into a handy-dandy PDF chart. As Munro notes, “We must hope that this trend will continue into 2009 as the bus fleet builds up with new deliveries, as riding continues to grow, and as the city’s revenues are strong enough to support more transit improvements.” For now, it’s a start.
