Route 26 only bypass Kipling going west on Dundas to Auckland and then north on Kipling. 26W was on Detour while The new Bloor/Kipling intersection was being rebuilt. A lot of riders for both Toronto/Mississauga get on/off along Burnhamthrope to get to/from Mississauga.What is even happening in this thread anymore?
Looking at the map of MiWay 26, it looks like it already reaches Kipling Station. It would be better to flip the direction of the eastern loop so Mississauga passengers can be dropped off at Kipling and picked up at Islington, but if Islington Station was completely bypassed then there would not be much coverage lost. I imagine in the future the Six Points will become a destination itself.
Route 26 will remain as is until the new Kipling Terminal opens next Sept. What will happen to 26 next year is still not finalizes as well route 1 at this time. There been talk that a route will continue to Islington since a fair number of riders work in the area and not force riders to pay 2 fare. It possible that 26 will use Kipling in both direction only to Kipling.
All other routes going to Kipling next year will use Dundas to/from 427 except route 3 that will use Auckland and Bloor like today, but not to/from Islington.
