John Tory says the reality is the city doesn’t stop on Sunday mornings and neither should the TTC.
And with that the Toronto mayor’s renewing his call to have subway trains running an hour earlier on Sundays.
Currently, the train service begins at 9 a.m.
The mayor says people have different schedules and for a lot of people, Sunday’s just another work day.
”Of course, it applies, not just to people who go to work, but also to people who go to church and people who are engaged in recreational activities. We have a lot of these runs and various things that are sometimes the subject of controversy and it’s odd that we have all these marathons and runs and so on, and half the time the subway isn’t operating.”
If the TTC board approves a report recommending this change at its meeting November 23rd, Tory says it could take effect as early as the new year.
The earlier opening would cost about $1-million annually.
