13 Neville Park (2005)

Compiled by Pete Coulman

In April 2005, extensive trackwork on Queen Street east of Kingston Road forces the temporary abandonment of streetcar service through the Beach. With construction so intense that even shuttle bus service on Queen Street was impossible, the TTC revised the transit services in the area, connecting residents and shoppers in and around Queen Street with diverted streetcar services on Kingston Road, and the BLOOR-DANFORTH SUBWAY. Service was augmented on the area’s north-south routes, including 92 WOODBINE SOUTH and 64 MAIN, but this was insufficient for the eastern end of Queen Street. Thus, the TTC decided to connect this area to the subway via Victoria Park, and they decided to give this temporary route its own name and number. Service on 13 NEVILLE PARK began on April 4, 2005.

Service begins on this new temporary route with buses operating from Victoria Park station via west on Denton, south on Victoria Park, east on Kingston Road and south on Blantyre to Queen. Buses return via west on Queen, north on Glen Manor, west on Williamson, north on Southwood, east on Kingston Road, north on Bingham, east through Bingham loop, north on Victoria Park and east on Denton to Victoria Park station.

Service operates seven days a week, 18 hours a day. Two buses provide a 15-minute base service, with a third bus added during rush hours to provide 12 minute service.
