Casino shuttles parked near malls and plazas are being targeted by a Scarborough councillor who says they pose a safety hazard.
Jim Karygiannis says he’s asking companies to keep tour buses off residential streets in his Scarborough-Agincourt ward.
That includes Bonis Avenue beside Agincourt Mall, Redlea Avenue near Splendid China and Bamburgh Circle near a commercial plaza at Warden and Steeles avenues.
“On one hour on Bonis you will probably find three or four buses,” Karygiannis told Scarborough Community Council on Jan. 15.
“I’m asking: please find other places.”
Companies which operate the shuttles seven days a week started stopping on Bonis, and then approached Agincourt Mall about using its parking areas, said Steve Bishop, vice president of development services for the mall’s owner, North American Development Group.
Last fall, after a year or two of complaints from customers, tenants and residents about their presence, the mall told companies their buses were no longer welcome.
“We were concerned about liability,” Bishop added.
The shuttles, however, went back to picking up and dropping off passengers on Bonis, sometimes “right in front” of a crosswalk close to the Agincourt Public Library, Paul McKinlay, who lives nearby, told Scarborough councillors.
“They’re just using it as a cheap bus terminal,” he added.

More than a dozen illegal cannabis stores still operating in Toronto, but closing them a ‘complex process’
His council resolution: Subway, subway, subway. My greatest resolution is that I need to work on the Sheppard subway extension from Don Mills out to McCowan.
It’s important to my constituents because of the development happening — there’s 60 to 70 towers coming along, a lot of them along Sheppard. When you have this great density intensification, you will need means of transportation.
His personal resolution: To spend more time with my granddaughter, Evelyn. If I get to see her for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I am in heaven.
The last Toronto food bank to open in 2018 started with a woman handing out bread.
Indra Adjei saw plenty of people in her northwest Scarborough building who needed it — seniors, people who lost their jobs, people who couldn’t work.
Many of them felt isolated — and lots of times, when people from 80 or more families came for bread each Friday, it made Adjei’s day to see them smile.
