City Of Toronto Launches “Food Is King” Promotion

For months we have been hearing about the King Street Project with the goal of getting the transit system moving quicker but business owners have voiced their opinions saying it’s not working and affecting their income. On several occasions to prove that King Street is a ghost town merchants have played Street Hockey and once again did so on Tuesday afternoon to make a statement. Data from the month of January reveals that commute times on the 504 streetcar has improved by up to three minutes and ridership on routes serving the pilot has increased from 2,047 passengers per hour to 2,892 passengers per hour. The City of Toronto launched the “Food is King” program on now until March 4 providing up to a $15 credit for any resident who uses the line-skipping “Ritual” app to order food from one of 40 participating business that are located in the King Street pilot area. During a news conference Mayor John Tory said they are making changes for overall success while addressing concerns from various groups. He posted on Twitter “King Street is open for business. With free Green P parking up to $10 and the Food is King promotion, it has never been easier to head down to King Street to enjoy one of its amazing restaurants. ” Have you been discouraged and will the promotions be enough for your to get dine on King?
