A map of the 511 Bathurst route along with connecting services.
511 Bathurst is a streetcar route operated by the Toronto Transit Commission in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
The 511 Bathurst begins at a loop above
Bathurst station, where it interchanges with the Bloor-Danforth line, and rounds south along Bathurst Street as far as Fleet Street, westwards along Fleet to Strachan Avenue, and then north-west on a private right-of-way, the latter two segments shared with the 509 Harbourfront, to Exhibition Loop, where it interchanges with GO Transit's Exhibition station on the Lakeshore West line.

Late at night, the 511 Bathurst is replaced by the
310 Bathurst Blue Night bus, which also includes the route of the 7 Bathurst bus route, running further north on Bathurst to Steeles Avenue.
Operation [ edit ]
Route 511 is primarily operated with
CLRVs, but two-section ALRVs and the new accessible five-section Flexity Outlook streetcars are also used to provide extra service on the line during special events at Exhibition Place, such as the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) and most recently during the 2015 Pan American and Parapan American Games at the "CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Park" sporting events on which the route would operate occasionally on a Proof-of-payment (POP) all door boarding system.
