This New Year's Eve, you may want to skip the Uber and ride local transit instead. Because thanks to very generous sponsors, public transit like the TTC will be offering FREE rides all night long on NYE!
For the fifth year in a row, Corby Spirit and Wine has proudly helped Torontonians get home safely after midnight strikes on the new year. For the past four years, the company has sponsored the entire TTC network as part of its annual #CorbySafeRides program.
Courtesy of Corby Spirits, all buses, streetcars and subways will be free of charge on December 31, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on January 1, 2018.
Pleased to partner with Corby Spirits for safer travel, TTC Chair Josh Colle said in a press release, "New Year's Eve is a busy night for the TTC and offers extended late-night service and free rides for passengers thanks to this partnership."
As for which trains and buses will be open, the TTC has confirmed that all late-night service will continue until 4 A.M. on all routes currently operating Monday through Friday evening service.
