It's worth noting the following:Currently, because of the construction on Eglinton Avenue West (from Weston Road eastward), most riders either continue south to Line 1, or detour around Eglinton Avenue West entirely.
The present M-F rush hours schedule at Renforth Station (from link) is as follows:

The present Sunday schedule, after 10 pm is as follows:

We have been told to expect a 5 minute daytime headway on Line 5, maybe 2± minutes during rush hours. Likely the ridership will come from transfers from the bus routes that currently cross Eglinton Avenue West. We could get short turns either at Mt, Dennis Station, or Jane Station. Depending if they include crossovers at Jane Station and an union track provision for a Jane LRT. Haven't seen up-to-date information on where the crossovers and pocket tracks will be located, as yet.
For some comparison, some U.S. cities have headways on their rapid transit, equal to or worse than the current bus service on the 32A Eglinton West bus.
1. Covid scheduling, you can basically double the bus frequencies because of this
2. Summer Scheduling
3. Realignment of bus service to other corridors (since Eglinton is a crapshow due to construction right now)
