The City of Toronto's
King Street Transit Pilot
Starting on Sunday, November 12, 2017, the King Street Transit Pilot will be in effect from Bathurst Street to Jarvis Street.
Changes to King Street
During the pilot, all motorists and ridesharing vehicles are not permitted to drive through intersections or park on King Street at all times. Parking spaces will be eliminated and converted into public spaces, taxi stands, and loading zones.
We’re here to help you understand the changes ahead. Find out more about the new traffic rules for ridesharing vehicles.
