Sorry I heard 35 but was thinking of the 39. 38 doesn't serve Square One. 39 doesn't serve the Subway. So both are pretty useless.
The 35 is too far to help me. If I have to take a bus to get to another bus to get to the subway, I might as well go to Dundas and take the 201 or 101.
And how would you get to Dundas? After all, the 38 is useless, right?
I don't really understand your obsession with the 89. I think full service on the 27 would be far more useful. But whatever, let's keep those buses on the 89 for no reason.
