TTC's special pass, rainbow bus
help celebrate WorldPride, June 28, 29

Pride_Pass_2014.pngThe TTC is getting into the spirit of WorldPride 2014 by developing special weekend passes for groups of passengers to use this Saturday, June 28 and Sunday, June 29.

And, it’s painted one of its buses the colours of the rainbow to mark the occasion. The bus is in regular service along the 94 Wellesley route throughout the week, but the TTC will put it into special service during Pride events this Thursday, June 26 and Sunday, June 29.

To make travel easier this weekend, the TTC has produced a special WorldPride-branded TTC event Family / Group Weekend Pass. For just $22, the pass provides unlimited travel on the TTC this weekend for a group of as many as six people — no more than two adults per group. (The group may also include four children younger than 19.) You can buy the pass at any TTC collector booth or store or other business that the TTC has authorized to sell tickets, passes and other fare media. You can view a list of authorized vendors here.

This Thursday, June 26, the TTC’s WorldPride Rainbow Bus will shuttle brides, grooms and their guests between Bathurst Station and Casa Loma, where more than 110 couples will exchange vows in a ceremony that will break the North American record for the largest group same-sex wedding. The shuttle will operate between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and remain at Casa Loma until 4 p.m. for the first part of the celebration.

The bus will also roll along Yonge Street as part of this year’s parade Sunday, June 29. As always, TTC staff and family will be part of the celebration.

Expect detours and delays for TTC services throughout the weekend for various Pride events, especially Sunday during the parade. Although the TTC has not yet confirmed details, it’ll likely be detouring buses operating along the 94 Wellesley route Saturday and Sunday. You should also expect delays for buses and streetcars operating along the 5 Avenue Rd, 6 Bay, 97B Yonge, 300 Bloor - Danforth overnight, 505 Dundas and 506 Carlton routes at various times this weekend.

GO Transit is operating extra trains Sunday, June 29 to help parade-goers travel to and from the event.
