Changes to Downtown Express routes

November 26, 2019

The TTC made changes to the downtown portion of its Downtown Express bus routes that operate during morning and evening rush periods, to help you move across the core as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Changes began November 25, 2019, and include:

  • Downtown Express bus routes that travel along Richmond Street and Adelaide Street in the downtown core will be changed to operate on the King Street Transit Priority Corridor (King Street from Bathurst Street to Jarvis Street).
  • This change is being made to improve travel time and service reliability.
  • The Downtown Express buses and 504 King streetcars will serve separate stops along King Street. You will need to make sure you are waiting at the correct stop. Route numbers are prominently displayed on stop markers.

An additional fare is required on Downtown Express routes. You can load a TTC Monthly Downtown Express Pass or 12 Month Downtown Express Pass onto your PRESTO card. You can also pay the full double fare from the balance on your PRESTO card, by exact cash or by using two tickets or tokens. For more information, visit ttc.ca/fares.
