The Toronto Transit Commission has undertaken a review of all streetcar stops to improve customer safety and speed of service.

TTC will be improving the safety and speed of streetcar service by adjusting streetcar stops to ensure they are located at signalized intersections or crosswalks. This initiative will speed service by removing some stops that are unreasonably close together. The recommendations for these improvements were made after consultation with the Advisory Committee on Accessible Transit (ACAT), TTC’s Customer Liaison Panel, and City Councillors, and were approved by the TTC Board at the May 28, 2014 meeting. Please see the staff report for more details.

The streetcar stops scheduled for removal will occur by June 19, 2016. The remaining stop adjustments will be made later this year, as we work with the City to address the necessary signage and street furniture requirements:
