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

Route[edit]

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.[3]

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. 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 and Parapan American Games at the "CIBC Pan Am/Parapan Am Park" sporting events, accessible Flexity Outlook vehicles were also used, during which time the route operated on a Proof-of-payment (POP) all door boarding system. However on December 14, 2015, the 511 Bathurst streetcar will once again be switched over to a POP and all-door boarding operation along with the entire streetcar network. [4]
