Mar 16 2020, 10:18 am

As part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the TTC has cancelled the free streetcar rides it had previously scheduled for St. Patrick’s Day in Toronto.

Originally slated for the 501 Queen and 504 King routes on March 17, the no-cost service won’t be running in order to support ongoing public health efforts around social distancing.

The TTC says that it will work together with Jameson Whiskey to find opportunities to provide complimentary travel “at the appropriate time.”

For up-to-the-minute information on the TTC’s service frequency, keep an eye on Twitter.

With coronavirus on the rise, Toronto Public Health is reminding individuals who attend events and large gatherings to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. And if you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. Also, due to unexpected cancellations, please check the event you plan to attend is still taking place.
