2008 Service Improvements
During the proposed 2008 service improvement period, Councillor Pantalone and a public meeting conducted on April 2, 2007 recommended that 63 Ossington be extended south to service Liberty Village neighbourhood at all times to reduce walking distance to the nearest bus stop. The extension would serve south on Strachan Avenue, west on East Liberty Street, north on Atlantic Avenue and east on King Street West meeting at Shaw Street to continue on. A proposal by Councillor Pantalone to extend the service even further to the Exhibition Place was deemed to not meet financial standards.
