The 59 Maple Leaf bus route, which runs through Weston, will have a much gentler pruning than had initially been planned. The bus will continue to run as scheduled, with the exception of Sundays and holidays. On these days, service will cease at 10 pm.
The TTC’s original cutbacks were much more serious. The 59 would have stopped running on 7 pm on weekends and after 10 pm on weekends. These service cuts were reflective of cuts throughout the city on many lesser-used routes.
The citywide cutbacks generated a vigorous protest from riders and the public, and the TTC was forced to backtrack.
