8.  City Council request the Toronto Transit Commission Board to request the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission, in consultation with the General Manager, Transportation Services to collect extensive community feedback for each Transit Priority Corridor, before they are fast-tracked and implemented.

 

9.  City Council request the Toronto Transit Commission Board to request the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission, to release all data collected in the ongoing operation of the Eglinton East Corridor - Priority Bus Lanes as its own open dataset in the City of Toronto Open Data Portal.

 

10.  City Council request the Toronto Transit Commission Board to request the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission, in consultation with the General Manager, Transportation Services, to prioritize busways on streets that do not have existing LRT or Subways above or below ground.

 

11.  City Council request the Toronto Transit Commission Board to request the Chief Executive Officer, Toronto Transit Commission, in consultation with the General Manager, Transportation Services to conduct a robust consultation with the local communities and Stakeholders that would be affected by a dedicated bus lane on Dufferin Street, and that such consultations start immediately and be taken into consideration as part of the Transit Network Implementation Study.

Decision Advice and Other Information

The General Manager, Transportation Services gave a presentation on the Eglinton East - Priority Bus Lanes.

Origin

(July 7, 2020) Report from the General Manager, Transportation Services

Summary

The report seeks Council authority to install approximately 8.5 kilometres of priority bus lanes on Eglinton Avenue East, Kingston Road, and Morningside Avenue - along the same alignment as the proposed Eglinton East Light Rail Transit.

 

Work commenced in 2018 on Toronto Transit Commission's 5-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook in collaboration with Transportation Services and City Planning to examine ways to provide more priority to surface transit routes throughout the City of Toronto.  In December 2019, the Toronto Transit Commission Board approved the Toronto Transit Commission's 5-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook (the Plan) which identified service improvements to public transit in the City of Toronto in 2020-2024 and beyond. The Plan identified five candidate corridors and the Toronto Transit Commission Board identified a sixth for consideration:

 

- Eglinton East corridor, Kennedy Station to University of Toronto Scarborough campus, along Eglinton Avenue East, Kingston Road, and Morningside Avenue;


- Jane Street, between Eglinton Avenue West and Steeles Avenue West;


- Dufferin Street, between Wilson Avenue and the Dufferin Gate Loop;


- Finch Avenue East, between Yonge Street and McCowan Road;


- Steeles Avenue West, between Pioneer Village Station and Yonge Street; and


- Lawrence Avenue East.
 

Reliable transit service plays a vital role in keeping our City moving. As Toronto starts to recover from COVID-19, and businesses reopen, motor vehicle traffic volume is likely to increase as people with access to personal vehicles seek to maintain physical distance from others on their journeys. It is anticipated that increased motor vehicle volumes will impact surface transit operations. Surface transit must remain an attractive mode of travel to support economic recovery, environmental sustainability, efficient mobility, and social vibrancy. Implementing surface transit priority measures on the subject corridors improves access and mobility for city residents by providing fast and reliable connections to the city-wide transit network of subways, other bus routes, and GO Transit stations.

 

Working as an integrated team, staff in Transportation Services, City Planning and the Toronto Transit Commission undertook a preliminary review of the five corridors identified in the Toronto Transit Commission's 5-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook to determine implementation priority, with a focus on which could be delivered quickly to deliver benefits to transit users and transit operations. These corridors represent a subset of over 100 corridors evaluated by the integrated City/Toronto Transit Commission team to identify the most promising candidate roadway segments for prioritizing surface transit city-wide. The candidate list of roadway segments evaluated by the team was informed in part by the surface transit priority corridors established by the Council-approved Official Plan Amendment for Transportation (PH13.3). The corridors identified under Toronto Transit Commission's 5-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook represent the first phase of a city-wide surface transit implementation plan emerging from the Surface Transit Network Implementation Study, expected to report in the fourth quarter, 2020.

 

Toronto Transit Commission's 5-Year Service Plan and 10-Year Outlook provided a five-year horizon for implementation of surface transit priority on the identified corridors. The Toronto Transit Commission Board adopted a Member Motion at its June 17, 2020 meeting requesting accelerated installation of surface transit priority measures on the corridors.

 

Eglinton East emerged as the top candidate for the accelerated installation of priority bus lanes based on an assessment of a number of factors including improvement to transit reliability, available right-of-way and considerations for transportation equity and inclusion of Neighbourhood Improvement Areas. Implementation of the priority bus lane on the Eglinton East corridor is expected in Fall 2020.

 

Jane Street was the next candidate and following further development work staff will report later this year with an expectation that Jane Street will move to implementation in Spring 2021. The four remaining corridors will be prioritized through the emerging Surface Transit Network Implementation Study, expected to report in the fourth quarter of 2020.
