York University students who thought they would be getting a shorter trip to school this fall won’t be able to hit the snooze button after all.

A new express lane for buses that was supposed to shave seven minutes off the typical 20-minute rush-hour trip to campus from the Downsview subway won’t open in September as was promised.

And a new policy that would allow students and staff to use the same ticket for York Region Viva or TTC bus service from Downsview also is being delayed until January.

The TTC’s Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113, which also represents Viva drivers, had some concerns and transit officials have agreed to delay the integrated service, said TTC spokesperson Brad Ross.
