The routing changes are intended to straighten Route 1. This allows for faster run-times for passengers travelling through the areas being straightened. It also requires fewer buses to serve the Route, allowing resources to be reallocated to other areas of the network to increase frequency.
The approved changes include Route 1 not travelling on Richmond St. but instead use Colborne between Cheapside St. and Dufferin Ave., continuing on Cheapside and Adelaide to access the Huron & Kipps Ln area.
Southbound, Route 1 will operate on Horton St, Colborne St and Grey St. through the SoHo area. The northbound routing in this area will remain the same.
North of Victoria Hospital, the Route will avoid the Rowntree Park neighbourhood, removing service along Fairview, Alexandra, Raywood, Trevithen and Bond, instead operating along Wellington Rd. and Base Line Rd.
