While most people hunkered down indoors to avoid the snowy mayhem outside, a few brave souls headed outside.
And for those who regularly commute on the TTC during rush hour, there was an interesting surprise awaiting them.
- Reminder: You can be fined and towed for blocking TTC tracks when you park
- Winter storm warning now calling for up to 25 cm snow and ice pellets in Toronto
- TDSB, colleges, and universities closed in Toronto due to massive winter storm
The TTC, which had severe problems during the snow storm in January, appeared to be empty on Tuesday morning.
The “miracle,” as someone called it, was shared by some social media users, even showing the empty seats on subways and streetcars.
So looks like the best time to ride the rocket is during an intense snowstorm, Toronto.
In this snowstorm, a TTC miracle: a half-empty King streetcar appeared in front of me.

And the best part, there weren’t many delays on the TTC’s side.
🌨️ The weather is starting to affect some routes with some crashes on the roads and other service issues. There’s a live list of the routes affected here: https://t.co/aalobFRBuA and our control center also tweets them out from @TTCnotices – keep an eye on either! ^KJ

Looks like every commuter, and mostly the TTC, won the snow day.
