Origin

(April 4, 2022) Report from the Director, Planning and Capital Program, Transportation Services

Summary

As the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Borough Drive, City Council approval of this report is required.

 

Metrolinx GO Transit buses (GO Bus) and intercity buses currently operate out of the TTC Scarborough Centre Station (SCS) at 290 Borough Drive. In Fall 2022, GO Bus and intercity buses must relocate from the existing terminal as TTC requires the extra space in the SCS to run additional bus service to accommodate the decommissioning of Line 3 Scarborough, scheduled for 2023.

 

The Scarborough Subway Extension (SSE) project is constructing a new regional bus terminal, at north-east corner of McCowan Road and Bushby Drive, which is anticipated to open in 2030. This will be the future permanent home of GO Bus.

 

In an effort to maintain GO Bus service at Scarborough Centre, the GO Bus operations will be temporarily relocated to the east side of Borough Drive, between Progress Avenue and Triton Road from September 1, 2022 to December 31, 2030.
