TTC holiday service: An unofficial guide:
December 17 to January 8



Officially, this is what the TTC has announced — “a modified schedule” during the holiday period — from Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 23 until New Year’s Day, Sunday, January 1, 2018.

Its news release provides more detail:

“The holiday schedule is as follows:

Sat., Dec. 23
Sat., Dec. 30

  • “Regular Saturday service.
  • “Subway and most routes start at 6 a.m.

Sun., Dec. 24
Christmas Day - Mon., Dec. 25
New Year’s Day - Mon., Jan. 1, 2018

  • “Regular Sunday service.
  • “Subway and most routes start at 8 a.m.
  • “Ride free until 7 a.m. Jan. 1 courtesy of Corby Spirit and Wine.

Boxing Day - Tues., Dec. 26

  • “Regular Holiday service.
  • “Subway and most routes start at 6 a.m.

Wed., Dec. 27 to Fri., Dec. 29

  • “Regular weekday service with reduced peak period service on most routes.
  • “Subway and most routes start at 6 a.m.

New Year’s Eve - Sun, Dec. 31 - Ride free from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Jan. 1 courtesy of Corby Spirit and Wine

  • “The TTC will operate on a Sunday service schedule with most routes starting at 8 a.m. Most routes with Sunday late-evening service will continue until 4 a.m.”

Unofficially, though, you should probably expect that the TTC operates buses, streetcars and subway trains with roughly the same level of service as it does during July and August.

During the summer, the TTC provided passengers less frequent service along many bus, streetcar and subway routes, mostly during rush hours, but, in a few cases, also during the Monday-to-Friday “midday” period — from about 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. — and in one case, early evenings from about 7 until 10 p.m.

Remember, the TTC hasn’t confirmed this information — this is just our educated guess.

And, looking further at the TTC’s service during previous years, you can also expect it to start afternoon rush-hour service earlier than usually Friday, December 22 and Friday, December 29. Expect this earlier service to start about noon.

It will also likely increase service Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, as more people take the TTC do last-minute Christmas shopping — or to catch Boxing Day sales — visit friends or take in sights and attractions. Extra weekend and holiday service likely applies:

  • Sunday, December 17;
  • Saturday, December 23;
  • Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24; and
  • Boxing Day, Tuesday, December 26.
