November 18, 2022 . 11:00 am to 12:00 pm EST
This presentation outlines TTC’s service planning process, focusing on the fall 2022 service plan.
It will discuss how service levels are adjusted based on projected and observed customer demand, addressing bus terminal capacity issues through routing and service adjustments, adjusting streetcar service to accommodate construction projects across Toronto, and subway service changes to address completion of the Line 1 Automatic Transit Control (ATC) project.
It will also discuss how challenges such as ridership return uncertainties, construction delays and global supply chain issues have impacted TTC’s planning process and how to identify opportunities for improving transit service amid all these challenges.
