Holiday service: December 20 to 26



During the two holiday weeks before New Year’s Day, transit travel patterns change. Most schools, colleges and universities and some workplaces are closed, so many people who would ordinarily use transit don’t.

On the other hand, many more people are off work and use transit more often than usually to shop or travel to holiday events. All transit agencies in the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton and the Golden Horseshoe are revising their services.


this post lists transit service day by day. Next week, part 2 will detail holiday service from December 27 until January 4, 2010.
