The King Street Transit Pilot launched on Sunday, November 12, 2017 between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street. The Pilot aims to improve transit reliability, speed, and capacity by prioritizing streetcars over private vehicles.
Baseline traffic & pedestrian volumes were collected during October and early November 2017.
Monthly updates of traffic & pedestrian volumes on King St. (between Bathurst and Jarvis) will be published until the end of the pilot timed together with monthly dashboard releases.
- Volumes are classified into cars, single-unit trucks, articulated trucks, bicycles and pedestrians
- Volumes are collected at 31 intersections in the Pilot area using a video-based counting system
- Approximately one week of activity is captured per month, with more intensive collection conducted in the first months of the pilot
- Counts are aggregated by 15 minute time bins
- Counts are presented by intersection approach leg (N, S, E, W) and direction of travel (NB, SB, EB, WB)
