Toronto Transit Commission


Officially, this is what the TTC has announced — “regular weekday service”. However, in previous years, the TTC has decreased the frequency of service along most routes because it expects fewer passengers to be riding transit vehicles during the holidays. Unofficially, though, we know that “regular weekly” likely really means less frequent service along nearly 90 bus, streetcar and subway routes, so you could expect TTC service to look like this during the holidays:

All TTC routes

Buses operate with less frequent service during rush hours Mondays to Fridays from Monday, December 24 until Friday, **January 4, 2013, except holidays.

The TTC also operates “early-homebound” rush-hour service Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24 and New Year’s Eve, Monday, **December 31, with afternoon rush-hour service likely starting around noon each of those days.

Regular Monday-to-Friday rush-hour service resumes Monday, January 7, 2013.
