Detour 501 Queen Streetcar

Hello All,

Due to a TTC construction project, the Queen and Leslie intersection will be closed from May 11- June 21.

This closure is required for underground utility upgrades and the installation of the new streetcar tracks and infrastructure in the intersection.

This project will unfortunately require that streetcars and buses be diverted for the duration of the intersection closure.

The detour on the 501 Queen streetcar will take approximately 12 minutes more each way. The frequency of the 501 Queen streetcar will essentially be unchanged, with service continuing to be scheduled every 5-7 minutes throughout the day, and every 9-10 minutes in the evenings. The replacement bus service along Queen Street will be scheduled at about the same as the streetcar, every 5-7 minutes during the day and every 8-10 minutes in the evenings.

The detour can be viewed below:

Have a great day!

Treemobile: A project of Transition Toronto

Hello All, 

Here is some information about a great environmental program in our city:

Transition Toronto is a community-level initiative whose goal is to make our city more resilient in the face of climate change, oil depletion, and economic instability.

As part of their ongoing efforts, Transition Toronto has created Treemobile, a volunteer-run project that provides fruit trees and shrubs at low cost, both for pick-up or delivery. 

If you have ever wanted fruit trees or shrubs in your yard, but were unsure about where to plant, what to plant, or where to obtain the plants, Treemobile can help!

For more information, please visit their website: http://transitiontoronto.ning.com/page/treemobile

Or view their flyer: Treemobile

Thank you and have a great day!
