POSTED ON November 10, 2017 BY Justine Smith

BIA Members,

This is a reminder that the King Street Transit Pilot will launch this Sunday, November 12th, 2017 from Bathurst Street to Jarvis Street.  Expected pilot duration is one year. 

The final installation setup of the project will be completed this weekend. Weather-permitting, the City is planning to do work in the eastbound curb lane between 10AM and 6PM today, and in the westbound curb lane between 6PM and 2AM. The TTC will be using the new streetcar stop locations on Sunday morning.

On-street parking directly on King Street is also planned to be removed today.


The pilot is about moving people more efficiently on transit, improving public space and supporting business and economic prosperity along King Street. Local traffic access will be allowed. During the course of this pilot project, vehicles are not allowed to drive through the intersections on King Street, except for: TTC Vehicles, emergency vehicles, bicycles, and road maintenance. (see map for design of each block)

Taxis are allowed to travel through the intersections of the street between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The City welcomes your feedback during the course of this pilot.
