Veterans ride for free on Remembrance Day

Many transit agencies in the Greater Toronto Area and Hamilton will honour the sacrifice of the veterans of Canada’s wars by offering vets and their travelling companions free rides on Remembrance Day, Tuesday, November 11.

Transit agencies that have specifically announced the free service include Barrie Transit, GO Transit, Mississauga Transit, the Toronto Transit Commission and York Region Transit.

Transit agencies encourage vets to wear uniforms and medals on Remembrance Day or bring some other form of identification to let drivers and fare collectors know that they are veterans.

The transit agencies also offer free rides to the families of deceased veterans. Families should bring some document to identify them as a family member of a veteran who has passed away.
