QUEEN Bus Route HistoryLast updated May 19th, 2003
by Peter Coulman & Alan Gryfe
Last day of operation for MIMICO cars. Service on the old single-tracked Toronto & York Radial Railway route is suspended so that the line can be double-tracked and Lake Shore Road widened and rebuilt.
Owing to track construction on Lake Shore Road, a temporary bus service is operated from (first) Humber Loop (at Jane Street--now the South Kingsway) via Lake Shore, Queen Street (now the Queensway), and Church Street (now Royal York Road) to Van Emery Street.
Opening ceremonies for the newly double-tracked Lakeshore Road, including a parade and free rides between Humber Loop and Long Branch Loop (just west of Brown's Line).
Route name changed from QUEEN to MIMICO bus.
