The TTC is symbolic of Toronto and of city life. It serves the city with an extensive network of subways, streetcar lines, bus routes and a specialized service for people with disabilities. TTC has been featured in many television commercials, documentaries as well as worldwide distributed feature films. With over 69 subway stations spread over four lines there is a variety of characteristic design throughout the system.
 

Tourists, families and individuals filming or photographing within the public areas of the transit system for non-commercial purposes, are not expected to contact the TTC to obtain permission or a permit so long as such filming/photographing does not interfere with the safe and orderly operation of the transit system and/or our customers.
