King Street Transit Pilot: Moving People More Efficiently, Supporting Business, and Improving Public Space, presented by David Hunter, P.Eng., Senior Transportation Planner at the City of Toronto
The King Street Transit Pilot between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street is about putting people and transit first by improving transit reliability, speed, and capacity. King Street is the busiest surface transit route in the city, moving more than 65,000 riders on an average weekday. The pilot is changing how King Street works, by not allowing through movement at most intersections for private vehicles and providing priority to streetcars.
David Hunter is a Senior Planner in the City Planning Division at the City of Toronto and is one of the project managers, in partnership with the Transportation Services Division and the TTC, working on the King Street Transit Pilot, a project about rethinking the busiest surface transit route in the city.
David will provide an overview of the King Street Transit Pilot and discuss the initial results and feedback.
