Transit vehicles "stop and stay"
at 11 a.m. on Remembrance Day

The drivers of Toronto Transit Commission, Mississauga Transit, York Region Transit and other Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton transit vehicles will pause their buses, streetcars and trains at 11 a.m. on Remembrance Day, Tuesday, November 11.

The drivers will “stop and stay” at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month for two minutes to honour the veterans of Canada’s wars. (Ninety years ago, at 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918, the Allies and Central Powers signed the Armistice — the formal document ending the First World War.)

The stop and stay allows passengers and drivers two minutes to reflect on the sacrifices that members of the Canadian armed forces and other Canadians have made for peace.

TTC drivers will stop subway and Scarborough rapid transit trains at station platforms. Bus and streetcar drivers will pause their vehicles at a regular service stop just before 11 a.m. and remain there during the stop and stay. Wheel-Trans operators will stop their vehicles at a safe location.

Service will resume at normal levels immediately after two minutes of silence.

In previous years, GO Transit has honoured the stop and stay by halting all communications during the two-minute silence, but for safety and operational reasons, GO drivers can’t halt express buses operating along freeways or GO trains sharing tracks with freight trains.
