Sunday and holiday late evening service restored. Buses now operate at intervals of 30 minutes or better, whenever the subway is open.

Sunday, May 7, 2017

The interline with 51 LESLIE is eliminated, seven days a week, to reduce the effects on service reliability as a result of Metrolinx Line 5 EGLINTON LRT construction. Between the two routes, one more bus will be used. Trips will no longer interline between routes.

During the late evening, seven days a week, the service will change from every 30 minutes to every 20 minutes.
