Toronto City Hall (Queen Street) Bus Parking Spaces Now Impacted by Nathan Phillips Square Redevelopment

from OMCA

As reported in OMCA Report last month, redevelopment of Nathan Phillips Square in front of Toronto's City Hall will impact bus parking spaces on Queen Street. The four designated free on-street bus parking spaces on Queen Street (one hour maximum) adjacent to Nathan Phillips Square have been reduced to just two spaces (at the east end) and these will be signed for bus loading and unloading only, and not for parking. We have questioned the City as to why they have preserved parking space for four food trucks, spaces that could and should have been allocated to buses.

We are continuing to press the City to ease the impact of losing our Queen Street spaces by designating six new (free) on-street bus parking spaces on Armoury and Chestnut Streets. These spaces would be available for buses to park for a maximum of two hours, and groups could easily walk between there and Nathan Phillips Square. We are advised this week by City staff that they are working on a by-law that has to go to City Council before the six spaces can be established. more
