Ride the rocket to your parties this St. Patrick’s Day, Toronto!

The TTC has confirmed that once again, it will be offering FREE rides on the 501 Queen, and 504 King routes on March 17.

“Cheers to free rides on the 501 Queen and 504 King routes on March 17 from 7 pm to 2:30 am,” reads the TTC’s website. “Thank you to our friends at Jameson Whiskey for providing Torontonians with safe rides to and from their St. Patrick’s Day festivities.”

This means there is no need to tap your PRESTO card on the 501 Queen or 504 King routes on St. Patrick’s Day.

“PRESTO card readers on these routes will be covered and signs will be placed on fare machines. Customers connecting to the subway or another route from the 501 or 504 must pay their fare when entering or boarding at their transfer point and ensure they take a paper transfer from the Fares and Transfers Machine on the streetcar or from the transfer machine in the subway station,” said the TTC.

This is clearly cheaper than an Uber ride, so get on the streetcar and head home safe,  Toronto!
