About the Toronto Transit Commission TTC

The TTC is a public transport agency in Toronto, Canada. It is among the three most used urban transit systems in North America.

Today, buses are the main sector of TTC operation. With a total of 2,031 buses, the TTC stands in the third place in North America, after New York City and Los Angeles. The term “trolley coach” is used to refer to trackless electric vehicles. Hundreds of old buses have been replaced with the low-floor Orion VII. Many hybrid electric buses were also replaced with the newer 500 Orion VII Next Generation Hybrids in 2008. The TTC also runs Wheel-Trans for the disabled with special low-floor buses. The TTC has articulated buses, nicknamed ‘Artics’. At 18 meters long, the Nova LFS Artics hold about 112 people.

Rapid transit Subway Lines

The Toronto rapid transit system consists of four subway lines:

  • Line 1: Yonge-University
  • Line 2: Bloor-Danforth
  • Line 3: Scarborough
  • Line 4: Sheppard

Three of the subway lines (1, 2, and 4) are served by 678 cars grouped into trains of 4 or 6 cars. These three lines share non-revenue track connections and utilize the same technology. The Scarborough RT has a fleet of 28 cars grouped into trains of 4 cars. This line is not compatible with the subway system. It shares no track connections or equipment.

All subway lines provide service 7 days a week from approximately 5:45 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. except for Sundays, on which the opening is 8:00 a.m.

During the overnight periods, the subway and its stations are closed. Overnight service is provided by buses and streetcars. These overnight routes are issued numbers in the 300 series and are referred to as Blue Night routes.

Streetcars

Streetcar routes are focused on the downtown area. The TTC’s current fleet of streetcars consists of about 250 Light Rail Vehicle and Articulated Light Rail Vehicle streetcars. The first of new Flexity Outlook light rapid transit vehicles have entered service in 2014.
