Coincident with the opening of the SCARBOROUGH RT, a new rush hour only route is established to connect the industries of Middlefield Road with Scarborough Centre station, replacing the 85E SHEPPARD EAST branch east of McCowan Avenue. 130 MIDDLEFIELD buses operate from Scarborough Centre via north on McCowan, and east and north on Middlefield, looping via McNicoll, Maybrook and Newmill Gate. This looping is reversed for the afternoon rush hour.

The north loop is expanded to operate via McNicoll, Maybrook and Passmore (no change to the route sign). This loop is reversed after 3 p.m. Monday to Friday midday and evening service is also added on this date.

Service extended north of McNicoll to an existing off-street loop on Middlefield just north of Steeles. Buses continue to serve McNicoll, Maybrook and Passmore northbound until 3 p.m. and do so southbound after 3 p.m.

November 23, 2008

As part of the TTC's Ridership Growth Strategy, service on 130 MIDDLEFIELD is expanded to operate seven days a week, at intervals of 30 minutes or better, between Scarborough Centre and Steeles Avenue whenever the subway is open. MIdday and late evening service Monday-Firday and all weekend service will be interlined with route 132 MILNER. The Sunday Passmore-only branch is thus made redundant and eliminated.

There are also routing changes on this date as well. Service on Maybrook Avenue at off-peak times is now provided by the 42A CUMMER branch. So, service begins on a 130B rush-hour only branch, with morning northbound buses operating via Middlefield, east on McNicoll, north on Maybrook and west on Passmore before heading north back on Middlefield to Steeles. In the afternoon, southbound buses operate via Middlefield, Passmore, Maybrook and McNicoll.
