King Street Transit Pilot

Moving more than 65,000 public transit riders along King Street has become a priority for the City of Toronto and so on Sunday, November 12 the east-west roadway stopped allowing cars through intersections. Only streetcars are allowed to pass along King Street, all private cars have to turn off King Street at each intersection. It seems way more confusing than a system of one way streets and my brain hurts thinking about it. Many vehicles are ignoring the changes at this point so it will take some getting used to.

King is the third busiest ttc corridor in the City, surprisingly just behind the Yonge-University and Bloor-Danforth subway lines. So they have cut off two lanes of traffic, one on each side, for such things as drop off zones, accessible bus stops, public spaces and ttc stops. This pilot project runs between Bathurst and Jarvis Streets.
