Statement by Councillors Malik and Moise on the 501 Queen St. Metrolinx Diversion

Our downtown communities deserve reliable public transit. Recently, it was reported that the TTC’s 501 Queen St streetcar would be replaced by shuttle buses for 20 months due to disruptions created by the planned Ontario Line construction work by Metrolinx. Our offices have been working jointly with City staff to minimize disruptions to service.

TTC Safety Message

Like you, I'm one of 1.7 million people who use TTC every day. Riders and workers can, and should, be safe moving across our City.
From what we're seeing and hearing, it hasn't felt that way lately. Violence prevention is urgently needed. More crisis response workers, 24/7 drop-in spaces, and better transit service are proven investments in our safety, unlike an increase of policing.
