Routing details

The current routing of route 29.

This route provides service on Dufferin Street south of Wilson Avenue. There is one northern terminal which is Wilson Station for both branches, 29A and 29C. Southern terminals include Dufferin Gate for 29A, and Princes' Gate for 29C within the CNE grounds. Branch 29C does not operate during the summer as the Exhibition grounds are often closed to special events during this time. Outside the summer months, branch 29C only operates during the rush hour on weekdays and during the day and early evenings on weekends.
