Holiday 2020 Transit Schedule Changes for Toronto and Surrounding Area

Reading Time: 3 minutes

This Holiday season will be different for all of us this year. If you are travelling on the TTC or taking GO Transit over the Holidays, here are some changes you need to know.  

The TTC will not be offering free rides to Torontonians this New Year’s Eve in an attempt to help keep Covid numbers down in the GTA and mitigate the chances of large gatherings this Holiday Season. In years past, the TTC has partnered with Corby Spirit and Wine to provide free streetcar, bus, and subway service between 7 p.m. on Dec. 31 and 7 a.m. on Jan. 1.

This Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, you can expect the TTC’s Sunday service if you’re using transit to get around the city. Subway service will start around 8 a.m. and will run every 4-5 minutes. You can access full holiday service details on the TTC website.

On New Year’s Eve the TTC will be operating their regular service hours for those who need to take public transit for essential reasons. Exact times vary by station, but generally, the subway operates from approximately 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday and approximately 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sundays.

GO Transit will not be running extra late-night service on New Year’s Eve; instead, they will be running regular weekday service. View the full schedule on the GoTrain website

They will also not be offering free travel on their trains or buses this New Year’s Eve to support public health recommendations to avoid non-essential travel.
