Weekend events affect transit services, November 4, 5, 6



This weekend, Remembrance Day events affect transit services in the Acton area of Halton Hills, Ajax, Aurora, the Bramalea area of Brampton, the Bronte area of Oakville, the East York area of Toronto, the Georgetown area of Halton Hills, Markham village, Milton; the New Toronto area of Toronto, Pickering, Richmond Hill and downtown Toronto.

Other events, not marking Remembrance Day, take place in Guelph and Hamilton.

Two more events that would usually affect transit services this weekend are also taking place in Newmarket and the Unionville area of Markham, but, this year, they won’t affect transit services. Since a strike prevents York Region Transit from offering some of its services, the events take place without resulting in transit detours: the two areas have no service to disrupt.


The events affect these routes:
