We have some additional information about the LTC proposal to modify bus service in the neighborhood, including materials from the open house held in November, and ridership data for the current Monday to Saturday until 6 pm service (#31).
- Current and proposed Routes 9 & 31
- Current bus routs – North End
- Proposed bus routes – North End
- Ridership data for Route 31
It is important to note that the LTC is actively soliciting your comments on the proposed change. They have not yet determined whether or how service will change. It is possible the current service could remain the same, could be removed entirely, could be replaced with the proposal shown in the attachment (7 days a week until midnight), or could be modified in some other way. Consider commenting by Friday to the LTC as to the service (or absence of service) you would like to see. The e-mail for commenting is: email@example.com
Also of note is that the proposed #9A route goes to downtown, not to campus.
We also have some information on the impact on winter maintenance if there was no bus service. Here is question asked and the answer from the City’s Division Manager in charge of winter maintenance.
Subject: question about snow level of service from Sandy Levin
Hi John, hope all is well. LTC is looking at service changes in my area of the city. If the secondary collector (Lawson Road east of Wonderland to Wychwood Park south to Sarnia) were no longer to have bus service, would that change the level of service for snow removal ? Let me know this week if you can.
If the Bus moves off the route it would no longer require priority services like salting. Adjustments would be made for next season.
