The TTC is helping Raptors fans get around safely as they cheer on the home team in the historic finals starting tonight, and Raptors in-arena announcer Herbie Kuhn is spreading the message with a special public address announcement now playing in all TTC subway stations.

Extra TTC staff will be on hand at Union Station to help customers get where they need to go, and additional subway trains will be on standby to enter service if needed.

All early subway closures scheduled for home and away game nights will be canceled, beginning with the early closure that was scheduled for tonight. The early closure scheduled for 11 p.m. on Wed., June 5 between Wilson and St. Clair West stations has also been canceled.

Some bus and streetcar routes near the Scotiabank Arena will divert toward the end of each game and remain on diversion until crowding subsides:
