Please be advised that starting January 5, 2014, the TTC will be splitting the 97 Yonge bus route into two separate north and south services. The northern service will run between Steeles Avenue and Lawrence Station. The southern service will run between York Mills and Davisville Station throughout the week with direct service to and from downtown at peak periods. Service will be maintained at all stops, but the limited service from Davisville Station to St. Clair Station between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekdays is suspended.
These services changes are as a result of severe traffic congestion on Yonge north of Sheppard due to an ongoing water main replacement project that affected the reliability on this route. The TTC says that splitting the route in two parts will make service on this route more reliable and resilient to delays.
