The 511 Bathurst is a streetcar route operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Route[edit]

The 511 Bathurst streetcar operates between Bathurst station and Exhibition Loop north-south along Bathurst Street in mixed traffic north-south along Bathurst Street, and east-west along Fleet Street in a dedicated streetcar right-of-way shared with route 509 Harbourfront.[3]

Late at night, the 511 Bathurst is replaced by the 307 Bathurst Blue Night bus, which also includes the route of the 7 Bathurst bus route, operating from Exhibition Loop to the city limits at Steeles Avenue.

Operation[edit]

Route 511 is primarily operated with CLRVs. However, during special events at Exhibition Place, such as the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), additional service is provided using ALRVs. Most recently, such as during the 2015 Pan American, Parapan American Games at the "CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Park" sporting events as well as the 2015 CNE, the route was partially operated with the TTC's new accessible Flexity Outlook low-floor vehicles.

Due to a streetcar shortage caused by late delivery of the Bombardier Flexity Outlook streetcars, the route has been operated using buses rather than streetcars since November 20, 2016.[4] However TTC streetcar service returned to service on this line from May 7, 2017, until September 4, 2017, when the route reverted to shuttle bus service due to an ongoing streetcar shortage.
