985 Sheppard East This route is accessible This route has bicycle racks This route is PRESTO enabled

The TTC is reallocating service in response to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 in Toronto.

The majority of Express Bus routes will not operate and regular bus service will continue to operate on these corridors. Most local service on express routes operate every 10-minutes or better. Overall, the TTC will continue to ensure that a 30-minute service or better is provided for customers across the network. Additional service will be operated if needed. 

All TTC buses (except Community and Wheel-Trans buses) have bike racks so that you can bring your bike with you on your journey. Depending on the bus type, bike racks can hold one or two bikes. The racks are easy to load and unload, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

All accessories must be removed from the bike prior to loading as they may impede operators' sight lines. Please remove water bottles, air pumps, panniers, child carriers, solid baskets, bags and other loose items before boarding. The Operator has the right to refuse use of the bike rack to keep clear sightlines.
