Message from the Executives
Office of the Chief Executive
The TTC has hit a major milestone in its vaccination efforts, with over 10,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccinations administered at clinics held at TTC workplaces and stations. That number keeps climbing as the current Vax and Ride campaign continues from April 7 to 10 at select TTC stations.
Thank you to everyone involved in getting these clinics up and running. We’ll keep working with our city and health partners to ensure employee families and the public continue to have opportunities to get their jabs at a convenient place and time.
Next week’s Board meeting
On April 14, Commissioners will gather for their second virtual Board meeting this year to vote on a number of major reports. The complete agenda can now be viewed at ttc.ca.
The action reports scheduled for this public session include:
• Train Operating and Funding Agreement for Line 5 Eglinton (Crosstown LRT). The TTC will be operating the new line, which is scheduled to open for revenue service in late 2022.
• Final recommendations of the Line 3 Scarborough Bus Replacement Study. The SRT is set to shut down in 2023.
• Final results of the TTC’s Head-to-Head eBus evaluation. The evaluation of our three battery-electric bus models started in October 2020.
• Annual reports for Diversity and Culture and the Special Constable Service department, which include culture change initiatives underway; and
• My CEO’s Report, with updates on ridership trends and other key performance indicators.
Catch the live-stream on the Official TTC YouTube Channel on April 14, starting at 10 a.m.
TTC100 contest is on!
And finally, the TTC kicked off a contest earlier in the week inviting school-aged kids (our next generation of riders) to share their vision for the TTC of the future. We’re asking students to express their ideas using illustrations, photos, drawings, models or short essays.
Contest winners will be announced in June and be eligible to show off their great ideas at a Transit Fair at Nathan Phillips Square on August 22 to wrap up our 100th anniversary celebrations. All the details can be found at ttc.ca.
While children of TTC employees aren’t eligible to participate, we’re planning other ways for employees to take part in TTC100 celebrations. Stay tuned.
Great to see more of you back at the office. Keep safe and stay vigilant.
