A Demand for Increased TTC Service to and from Finch Station sign now

The intent of this petition is to persuade the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) that their bus route, 60 Steeles West, is inadequate for the needs of York University students going to and from Finch Station.

While we do applaud the TTC's recent increase of 60 Steeles West buses during rush hour; this service increase has failed to address off-peak hours. As any student can attest to, the length and timing of a typical day at school does not coincide with a typical day at work.

What we propose the TTC do is:

Add another stop to the existing route, 36 Finch West, so that some of these buses will make a pick-up at a convenient location within York University's campus.

This would not only take advantage of the already voluminous service of the 36 Finch West route, and would alleviate much of the 60 Steeles West route's burden, but it wouldn't require much investment on the TTC's part at all.

As a York University student who takes the 60 Steeles West bus from York University's Keele Campus to Finch Station, one cannot help but notice all the Route 106 and 196 buses coming and going half-empty, while the Route 60 line keeps building. The inverse is also true as well, where frequently from Finch Station to York University, the bus is so full it sometimes cannot accomodate new passengers waiting on Steeles Avenue West.

Statistically speaking, on an average day (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. through 10:30 p.m.), there are an equal number of students travelling to and from both Downsview and Finch Stations. However, Finch Station is served by only one route, whereas Downsview Station is serviced by two routes. It has been objectively observed that the average wait time (Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. through 10:30 p.m.) for a Route 60 bus is generally two to three times as long as that of both Route 106 and 196.

A Spadina Subway Extension isn't going to help the students of York University wishing to go to Finch Station at all.
