Pride Week Events Affect Transit

Leave yourself a little more time for your trip this weekend, as Toronto’s Pride Week kicks into high gear. A number of events, including marches, will take place throughout the downtown, bringing crowds of all ages, likely causing congestion and lengthening trips.

The Dyke March will take place on Saturday, June 27 at 2 p.m., starting at Church and Hayden and following Church, Bloor and Yonge to Wood Street. Then, on Sunday at 2 p.m., close to a million spectators, gay and straight, are expected to descend on the area surrounding the Gay Village near Church and Wellesley for the signature Pride Parade. The route will follow Bloor Street to Yonge, Yonge Street to Gerrard and Gerrard Street to Church.

Wellesley Street is also closed between Yonge and Jarvis, forcing diversions of the 94 Wellesley bus.

You are advised to leave your car at home and take transit where possible. The subway is the fastest way to get in and out of the downtown core and it’s a great place for people-watching. Be patient to avoid crowds, and rather than re-entering the subway at Wellesley, College or Bloor-Yonge stations, considering walking to stops on the University line, or Bay and Sherbourne stations, to assure yourself of some space on the trains.

Further details about these and other events can be found on the Pride Toronto web site.
