A group of commuters is taking Toronto transit into its own hands, attempting to create a new bus line funded by residents of the city.

LineSixTransit is asking backers to donate money in exchange for a guaranteed seat on a bus that runs between Union Station and Liberty Village on weekday mornings.

LineSix takes its name from Toronto-born Drake's latest album "Views From The 6," rumoured to be a reference to the city.

The website promises "no more unpredictable delays and over-crowded commutes" on the 2.9-kilometre route.

The eastbound licensed charter bus would leave at 7 a.m., 7:45 a.m., 8:30 a.m. and 9:15 a.m. from the intersection of Pirandello and East Liberty Streets and head to the intersection of Front Street and University Avenue.

It would then turn around at Front and University, heading west at 7:20 a.m., 8:05 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. to the intersection of King Street West and Strachan Avenue.

Organizers are trying to raise $2,500 for a pilot project, which would run from Oct. 6 to 10, and have raised $1,400 so far. During the pilot, LineSix plans to provide all passengers with free coffee.
