514 Cherry extended to King Street and Roncesvalles Avenue during CNE Aug 18 to Sept 4, 2017.

From link.

Yet, it was to be only on weekends.

From link.

5 a.m., August 19 to 5 a.m., August 21,
5 a.m., August 26 to 5 a.m., August 28 and
5 a.m., September 2 to 5 a.m., September 5, 2017

Streetcars will be restricted due to traffic congestion around Exhibition Place.

514 Cherry streetcars will divert via King Street to Sunnyside Loop.


So which diversion is it?

It's probably so they can get more buses into the loop ther as the new stretcars take up a lot of room wehn they lay over in it. They are doing the same thing with 510 Spadina on the weekends too it;'s terminating at Queens Quay and only the 509 is going into Union. Maybe I will have to take a trip out to sunnyside loop to see one of the new cars there.

I went to the Ex last night and took Dufferin home – there were 514 cars in the loop/on Dufferin, so I guess it's the weekend diversion. Good of the TTC to make that super clear. [rolls eyes]
