TTC – Islington Station and New Kipling Hub [Full Details]

Posted in Road Work, Updates, Ward 5

 

 

With the opening of Kipling Station in 2019, MiWay will be revising all services currently anchored at Islington Subway Station and will be rerouting them to the new Kipling Station. Over the next few years, MiWay will be realigning our services within the City of Toronto with a view towards eliminating duplication and streamlining our services.

Although MiWay will be re-routing its service to terminate at Kipling Station, service along Burnhamthorpe Road (east of West Mall) may still be maintained.

Depending on passenger demand within this area, MiWay will consider maintaining some level of local service along Burnhamthorpe Road unless GTHA Fare Integration is introduced allowing for seamless transfers between transit systems.

In addition to the development of Kipling Station, the planned reconstruction of the Six Points Interchange will also greatly change the roadway network along Dundas, Bloor, and Kipling. Without any information on construction staging plans, we are unable to comment on the impact this will have on transit service within the area.

As always, check your MiWay route frequently as these changes happen.
