The Maple Leaf bus route, which runs through Weston, will have reduced nighttime service under the new city budget.
The new budget includes several proposed changes to the TTC. Token fares and Metropasses will be more expensive, and some less-used routes will be cut.
The TTC recommends eliminating service on the 59 Maple Leaf route after 7 pm on weekends and after 10 pm on weeknights. Presently, the bus runs every half-an-hour until 1 am. If the recommendations are enacted, 14 buses will be eliminated on weekday nights and 13 will be eliminated on Saturdays and Sundays.
Route 59 runs from Lawrence West Station on the Spadina Line to Weston Road. It goes through Weston on Church and Gary/Oak streets. During the morning rush hour, it runs every 11 minutes; during the evening rush hour, it runs every 20. After 7 pm and on weekends, service is reduced to every half an hour.
