From Friday September 10 until Friday, September 24, the judges for the TTC’s recent “tunnel-boring machines naming contest” received more than 700 pairs of names from creative Torontonians.

The judging panel has selected ten finalists and now it’s your turn. You can vote for two winning names, one for each pair of tunnel boring machines.

The judges will tally the votes and contact the two winners in early November. Winners may attend a special event displaying the tunnel-boring machines.

You can vote for your favourite names on-line until midnight this Friday, September 22.

The ten finalists:

  • Bitsy and Bory tunnel boring machine

  • Ebb and Flo
