Nov 9 2018, 8:11 pm

The TTC will be pausing all service for two minutes of silence on Sunday.

On November 11, between 11 am to 11:02 am, service will be stopped across the network in honour of Canada’s fallen, according to the transit agency.

All subway trains will be held at station platforms, bus and streetcar operators will stop their vehicles at a regular service stop prior to 11 am, and remain there for the duration of the pause.

Wheel-Trans vehicles will be brought to a stop at a safe location and service will resume immediately following two minutes of silence.

As well, all current members of the Canadian Armed Forces in uniform, war and peacekeeping veterans, and one companion, can ride free of charge on Sunday. TTC buses and streetcars will display a Lest We Forget sign, and a special message will run on all subway platform screens.

Several Remembrance Day events will also be taking place around the city on Saturday that will cause service disruptions.

Additionally, there will be no subway service on Line 1 between Finch West and Lawrence West stations on November 10 and 11 due to signal upgrades.

There are also several route diversions taking place during this weekend’s ceremonies, including:

Old City Hall Remembrance Day Service (9 am to 1 pm)

Queen’s Park Remembrance Day Ceremony (8:30 am to 1 pm)
