The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is vowing that the days of staring at your watch and cursing a tardy subway, streetcar or bus will soon be a thing of the past.
TTC chair Coun. Josh Colle announced on Monday a new 10-minute-or-better service network starting this fall.
The promise of service in 10 minutes or less will apply to 52 bus and streetcar routes across the city (see below) and is part of $100 million in service improvements for 2015. It also applies to all subway lines.
“We are committing to this standard, it’s a standard we can be held to, and one that we are investing the dollars,” Colle said.
“TTC riders will have shorter wait times at transit stops,” Colle promised. “It will help reduce crowding on vehicles and provide a more comfortable, convenient, but most importantly, reliable service for our users.
“Great cities provide mobility options for citizens across a city-wide network and there will be frequent and reliable TTC service.
“Our very patient and loyal TTC riders have demanded this…” he said.
