176 Mimico GO bus service
On June 25, 2018 the TTC will be launching the new 176 Mimico GO service. This one-way bus route will serve TTC bus stops between the Lake Shore Loop and Mimico GO Station every 30 minutes, and will meet with GO train trips during the peak periods. While the bus stops along the route are accessible, Mimico GO Station is not fully accessible.
This 176 Mimico GO service will operate on some streets where the TTC does not currently have service. Currently, there are no direct transit connections between Mimico GO Station and neighbourhoods east of the station, such as Humber Bay Shores. In total, eight new accessible bus stops will be added; these stops will be installed with accessibility features such as new pads and sidewalk connections.
This route accepts regular TTC fare and PRESTO. Save even more with PRESTO when you combine your GO trip with TTC; adults can save $1.50, students and seniors can save $0.55. Customers that are continuing their one-way trip on the TTC after alighting from the GO train can use the TTC transfer from their first TTC ride to board the second vehicle.
TTC, Metrolinx and the City of Toronto recognized a high demand for faster travel into Downtown Toronto and have worked together to provide an affordable alternative to driving for local transit users.
For GO Transit customers, please note that a “No Parking Anytime” prohibition on the south side of Newcastle Street from Royal York Road to beyond the curve at Audley Street will coincide with the start of TTC’s new 176 Mimico GO shuttle route. To provide safe and efficient bus operation on this two-way street, the removal of approximately 50 parking spots on the south side of Newcastle Street, before and beyond a new eastbound bus stop at Windsor Street, is necessary.
