Holiday transit guide,
December 27 to January 4



During the two holiday weeks around Christmas and 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. Recent posts detail some of those changes:

  • less service to colleges and universities, here;
  • revised Monday-to-Friday service, December 21 to 31, here;
  • “early homebound” rush-hour service, New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31, here.
  • Later service and free service, New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31, to follow.

This post wraps all those changes into one comprehensive list, detailing information about each transit agency day-to-day for the first week of the holidays, from Sunday, December 20 until Boxing Day, Saturday, January 2.
