Summer 1999

With the opening of the new alignment of Eastern Avenue connecting with Queen a block east of the old alignment, buses now loop at Queen via south on Coxwell, east on Queen, south and west on the new alignment of Eastern, and north on Coxwell.
22A buses from Bingham Loop operate southwest on Kingston Road, cross Queen then south and west on Eastern, and north on Coxwell. 22A buses heading to Bingham continue to operate south on Coxwell, east on Queen and northeast on Kingston Road.
It is believed that the new section of Eastern Avenue was built in conjunction with streetcar track work on Queen in this area in the summer of 1999. The new routing is first shown on TTC maps issued in 2000. Confirmation of date of this routing change is requested.

Due to renovations to install elevators at Coxwell station, buses serving this station must temporarily vacate the bus terminal until the end of 2016. As a result, service on the 22 COXWELL route is interlined with the 70 O’CONNOR route at all times except for early Sunday mornings (when the 322 COXWELL NIGHT still operates). There is no change to destination signs. Buses simply change their signs as they cross Danforth Avenue. Buses also continue south and north along Coxwell Avenue, temporarily avoiding Strathmore Blvd.

@@@ Sunday, May 7, 2017

With construction at Coxwell station at an end, the interlining between 22 COXWELL and 70 O’CONNOR ends, as these routes now enter Coxwell station’s bus terminal.
