Beginning October 30, 2019, Waterfront Toronto will close Commissioners Street from Cherry Street to Saulter Street as part of the Port Lands Flood Protection project. This closure will be in place until mid 2022. As a result, 72 Pape service will be rerouted:

  • 72B (Pape Stn-Union Stn) buses will divert via Villiers Street and Saulter Street, in both directions
  • 72C (Pape Stn-Commissioners) buses will turn back via Saulter, Villiers, Don Roadway, and Saulter to Commissioners

Service levels will remain unchanged.

This change is necessary as Waterfront Toronto works to provide flood protection for the Port Lands for future development and to renaturalize the mouth of the Don River. Find out more about the Waterfront Toronto Port Lands Flood Protection Project at http://portlandsto.ca.

Between October 13, 2019 and October 30, 2019, service will operate on the current routing, but will not be reflected in online schedules and real-time information.
