TTC to pull an all-nighter for Nuit Blanche
September 26, 2018
Nuit Blanche is back in Toronto this weekend and this year the TTC is playing an even bigger role. For the first time, the annual all-night contemporary art event will extend to Scarborough with art installations in most Line 3 stations.
To ensure Torontonians have every opportunity to explore the vinyl installations, fare will be free at any Line 3 station between 7 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday.
The TTC wants to help customers make the most of the festival and will once again extend subway service on Lines 1, 2 and 3. The subway will run every 10-15 minutes on Lines 1, 2 and 3 from 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning until regularly scheduled service resumes at 8 a.m.
Buses on the 300 Bloor-Danforth and 320 Yonge routes will run all night as scheduled. Line 4 Sheppard will operate on normal Saturday night/Sunday morning schedules.
Nuit Blanche festivities will result in diversions on the 6 Bay and 501/301 Queen routes. Customers are advised to check ttc.ca and follow @TTCnotices for more details and real-time service updates.
On Sunday morning, those participating in CIBC’s Run for the Cure can also take advantage of the added subway service on Lines 1, 2 and 3.
The following surface routes will be diverting to accommodate the event:
- 5 Avenue Road
- 94 Wellesley
- 505 Dundas
- 506 Carlton
- 300 Bloor-Danforth
