Better west-end streetcar service eyed

Reinstate the 507TransitToronto Star

The wheels are turning to provide south Etobicoke residents with improved streetcar service.

Toronto Transit Commission chief general manager Gary Webster was directed to report next month on restoring a separate 507 Long Branch route to run from the west up Roncesvalles Ave. to Dundas West subway station.

If city councillors on the commission approve a pilot project, it would begin in September. The westbound 501Queen streetcar would stop at the Humber loop, where riders would pick up the 507 to Long Branch.
