First day of service for 141 DOWNTOWN EXPRESS VIA MT.PLEASANT. Buses start from Eglinton and Redpath then run north on Redpath, east on Erskine, south on Mt. Pleasant, south on Jarvis and west on Richmond to York. Local service is provided from Eglinton to St. Clair by serving all stops. South of St. Clair buses run express and stop only on Jarvis at Carlton, Dundas and Queen, then on Richmond at Church, Yonge, Bay, York and Simcoe. There is no northbound service in the morning, and no afternoon service in either direction.

NOTE: The pocket timetable calls Richmond and Simcoe the downtown terminal for this route, but this intersection is not listed as a downtown stop. This article assumes that Richmond and Simcoe is a passenger stop for route 141.
