You can ride the TTC for FREE all night on New Year's Eve

Dec 28 2019, 5:29 pm

This New Year’s Eve, rather than waiting hours on end for a cab or dealing with Uber surge prices, why not take the TTC to and from your party.

To ensure Toronto can safely ring in the new year, Corby Spirit and Wine has partnered with the TTC once again to host its annual free rides initiative on New Year’s Eve.

This is the seventh year in a row the company and transit provider have teamed up to give free, safe rides for all Torontonians as they ring in the New Year.

Rides on all buses, streetcars, and subways will be free of charge from 7 pm on December 31, until 7 am on January 1, 2020.

While it’s still a few weeks away, it’s also good to know the TTC will be free so you can plan ahead.
