Traffic + Transport Wednesday

Here’s an update on the traffic and transport (including pedestrian experiences) situation downtown, as of Wednesday. I’ll update it throughout the day.

  • Trains between Montreal and Toronto are postponed until work-crews can check the tracks for earthquake damage.
  • G20 Mobilize (protester group) holding 4pm press conference at 40 College St (The Bay Police Station) on “illegal detentions” and “police harassment”.
  • The “Toxic Tour of Toronto” is as of 12:30pm, according to Twitter, just beginning to move from their Bathurst/Dundas starting point. They are aiming for a “three hour” march protesting various corporate polluters, aiming to end up on Ryerson Campus (so moving roughly east across the city). Presently at College/Bathurst and streetcars are backed up along the streets in both directions. Police have the protesters on one side of the street. Car traffic is moving, but slowly.
  • The Yonge-University-Spadina line between Union and St. George was closed between 8am and around 9:30am due to a “police investigation” into a suitcase left at Queen’s Park station. This was determined to be harmless and the line is now open.

Th-th-that’s all for now, folks.
