TTC diverting routes and cancelling more closures for the Raptors game
The TTC is getting into the Raptors game spirit.
Not only are there cancelled closures and bus diversions across multiple lines this evening and for upcoming games, but there’s also a familiar voice making public address announcements in TTC stations. Keep an ear out for announcements by Raptors in-area announcer, Herbie Kuhn, across all TTC subway stations.
The TTC has said that all early subway closures scheduled for both home and away game nights will be cancelled.
