In January 2016, the TTC implemented new schedules on route 501 Queen making the following changes:
- The route was split into two sections with an independent Humber to Long Branch service (in effect, a return of the long absent 507 Long Branch route), and
- Running times were increased so that scheduled and real-world travel times were better matched and short turns could be reduced.
The first article on this subject reviewed headway behaviour (the space between cars) with the new schedules. This article turns to running times (the time required to get from A to B) and service behaviour at terminals.
