The TTC is making many improvements to routes and services starting on Sun., Jan. 5.  These changes are part of the TTC’s regular ongoing review of ridership, service levels, and route reliability.
Four bus routes will be split, shortened, or simplified, to improve service reliability:

• 72 Pape – The route will be split into two services. The 72 Pape route will operate from Pape Station to Commissioners Street & Cherry Street, where it will connect with a new 172 Cherry Street route operating from St Andrew and King stations.
• 97 Yonge – The route will be split into north and south sections. Buses on the northern section will operate from Steeles Avenue to Lawrence Station. Buses on the southern section will operate between York Mills Station and Davisville Station, with peak period service to Queens Quay.
• 90 Vaughan – The peak period service west of Oakwood Avenue will be discontinued because of delays resulting from LRT construction on Eglinton Ave. W. All buses will operate on the main service between St Clair West Station and Oakwood.
• 34 Eglinton East – The route will be simplified to operate between Eglinton Station and Kennedy Station at all times. The peak period service east of Kennedy Station will be replaced by additional service on the 116 Morningside route.

These routes will have service increased to reduce crowding, or schedule changes to improve service reliability:
