August 31, 2011

Starting on Tuesday, September 6, the TTC is introducing service improvements to several of its bus, streetcar and subway services to reduce crowding, as a result of increased transit ridership. More than 70 service increases are being made on over 40 routes. Approximately 20 additional peak period buses and streetcars are being added. Many of the service increases are at off peak times, and will make TTC travel more reliable and attractive.

In 2010, the TTC set an all-time record of 477.4 million rides. This year, the system is on track to carry more than 490 million customers.
