Ward 18 Transit Town Hall

Meeting info from Ward 18 Councillor Ana Bailao's office:

Ward 18 Transit Town Hall

Among the most important issues to Ward 18 residents and our City as a whole is transit. It is imperative that we improve both existing options and build new transit routes in order to catch up after years of under-investment.

Please join me, Deputy City Manager John Livey and TTC Chair Josh Colle at our upcoming Transit Town Hall where we will discuss local and city-wide transit service improvements, including SmartTrack.

WHEN: MAY 13, 2015 AT 6:30PM



Uranium and TCE found in the area

Hi Neighbours,

I am considering starting a family in the area (with kids). Just wondering with the above average level of Uranium and TCE found in the area, is it safe to live here long term? The government has done some tests to the soil and realized that the levels of these minerals were higher than average. how you do feel about this? and has anyone ever performed the same soil test with the soil from your back yard? thanks. i am mostly concerned for the kids....hope you understand

subway noise

Hi there. Recently moved into the area. Really liking it so far. One unexpected discovery is the noise/vibration I can hear/feel in our house from the passing subway trains (we live just north of Bloor). Though I expect to get used to it, I wanted to know if anyone else has had a similar experience. And if so, how have you dealt with it? Did you get used to it or did you do anything to help minimize the noise? Any feedback would be appreciated.

168 Bus Speed on Symington

Has anyone noticed an increased issue with the 168 bus going well over the posted 40km/h speed limit?

Complaints to the TTC and police have gone now where.

Found - November Metro Pass

Found November Metro pass on Dupont and Franklin on November 4, 2013.

I know how it feels to loose a Metro pass at the beginning of the month.

So please if you or know of someone that may have lost a Metro pass on Dupont and Franklin, in front of Open Door Designs, puppet shop. Please respond.

And I trust that only honest people/person will reply.

Dear Friends and Neighbours,

I am writing to invite the residents of Ward 18 to a public meeting to discuss the state of transit in Toronto.

It is my intention to use this meeting as an opportunity for local residents to share their thoughts on public transit and other methods of transportation, what local services and programs need to be maintained and/or improved.

As I promised last fall to continuously engage local residents on important matters, I am very pleased to host this meeting that will include city staff. Please come with your thoughts and ideas on how we can make our community a better place to live and work.

Ana Bailão
City Councillor
Ward 18, Davenport

Discussion point: What are some of the public transit / transportation priorities for the Junction Triangle?

Dundas West - Bloor Mobility Hub Study

Meeting notice from Metrolinx:



Metrolinx, an agency of the Province of Ontario, is helping transform the way the region moves by championing and delivering mobility solutions for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA).


The Big Move, Metrolinx’s Regional Transportation Plan for the GTHA, imagines a future in which key transit stations become mobility hubs. Mobility hubs consist of major transit stations and the surrounding area. They serve a critical function in the regional transportation system as the origin, destination, or transfer point for a significant portion of trips. They are places of connectivity where different modes of transportation – from walking to riding transit – come together seamlessly and where there is an intensive concentration of working, living, shopping and/or playing.

The Dundas West-Bloor Mobility Hub Study

We are conducting a study on the proposed Dundas West-Bloor Mobility Hub. The study includes the development of a plan to better integrate existing GO Transit and TTC services, as well as provide a design foundation for future major upgrades to GO Transit and TTC service, and a stop on the Union-Pearson Air Rail Link.

The study builds closely on the findings of the Bloor-Dundas Avenue Study prepared by Brook McIlroy and commissioned by the City of Toronto in 2009.

The Open House

You’re invited to attend our open house to find out more about this study.

Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Venue: Lithuanian House, 1573 Bloor Street West

Local bus services cut, plus TTC fare increase

The TTC is proposing a large list of service cuts, in addition to a fare increase, in this year's budget. Tokens are expected to be $0.10 more expensive, and the cost of monthly Metropasses will increase by $5 to $126, starting February 1st. Oddly enough, the cost increase of Metropasses adds up to $60/year, which is the same as the vehicle registration fee that was just axed. Looks like the "War on Cars" has been shifted to "War on Transit Riders".

Spacing has a good summary of the proposed service cuts. TTC service cuts local to the Junction Triangle include:

  • Route 26 Dupont – No service after 10:00 p.m., every day.
  • Route 127 Davenport – No service after 10:00 p.m., Sundays and holidays.

Both of these routes currently have service until well after 1am.

If you care about maintaining services in this city, especially after our new mayor promised many times to not make any cuts, it might be a good time to send a note to the following elected officials:
