Toronto Celebrates Subway's Golden Anniversary



Fifty years ago this coming Tuesday, Canada’s first subway opened to the public. In an echo of the celebrations of that day, the TTC and the City of Toronto are organizing celebrations along the original Yonge subway and at Union Station. At 10:30, a special train will leave Eglinton station for Union, commemorating the ceremonial first-train that made the same run fifty years before. Upon arrival at Union, passengers will cross to the train station’s great hall where cake, entertainment and speeches will be provided.

You can board the special train at Eglinton station, but some recommend that, if you want a good spot to see the celebrations at Union, you should come to Union Station at 10:30. Representatives from the provincial and federal governments will be there, and there are persistent rumours that a major funding initiative will be announced at this event.

More information is available at the TTC’s website on the celebration.
