Veterans ride for free on Warriors Day, August 22

Veterans can ride free on several transit systems in the Greater Toronto Area on Saturday, August 22.

The Canadian National Exhibition hosts its annual Warriors Day, including a parade, on Saturday and vets and companions can enter the CNE for free that day.

Transit systems that have confirmed free fares for vets for Saturday only include:

The families of deceased veterans may also ride GO and YRT for free. The free service is available on vehicles serving all routes that the transit systems operate on Saturday, not just those serving the “Ex”.

Generally, the transit systems request veterans to wear their uniforms, medals or something else that would clearly identify them as veterans so they don’t have to pay a fare like other passengers. Families of deceased veterans riding GO and YRT should also bring some form of identification.
