Free rides and later service,
New Year's Eve, December 31



You may never get that free lunch that you’ve been waiting for, but you can ride your favourite train, subway, bus or streetcar free of fare New Year’s Eve and early New Year’s Day. Many Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton and Golden Horseshoe transit agencies are offering passengers free rides and later service to help everyone get home safely after celebrating the start of 2012.

Most local transit agencies absorb the cost of the free rides in their budgets — in 2010, the TTC estimated this cost at about $85,000. In Durham Region, however, two major employers are paying the bills to offer residents free and later DRT service, while down in St. Catharines, the union representing area paramedics and other emergency medical service personnel and several businesses are footing the cost of the free and later rides.

These transit agencies either offer later service or free rides for their passengers — or both — New Year’s Eve:
