You can board the TTC subway
at 8 a.m. Sundays, starting January 3

TTC subway service will start at 8 a.m. Sundays, starting this Sunday, January 3. This is one hour earlier than the usual 9 a.m. Sunday opening time, which the TTC has maintained since it opened its first subway line in 1954.

The Toronto Transit Commission, the TTC’s board of directors, approved earlier Sunday service during its November meeting.

This is only the first step in implementing earlier Sunday service. Buses and streetcars operating along many — but not all — routes are already serving passengers by 8 a.m. Sundays. Later this year, the TTC will further increase service so all buses and streetcars operating along routes that have Sunday service start by 8 a.m. For now, overnight service along the 300 Bloor - Danforth and 320 Yonge and other routes continue until 9 a.m.

According to a TTC news release,

“Early Sunday openings are the latest service improvement to be introduced in recent months, following this year’s expansion of overnight service and all-day, every-day service across the city, implementation of ten-minute-or-better service and reduced off-peak crowding on bus and streetcar routes.

“Building on the City’s unprecedented $95 million investment in public transit in 2015, next year’s budget includes new service initiatives that will continue to make immediate improvements to public transit for Torontonians:

  • “Bus service reliability improvements
  • “Streetcar service reliability improvements
  • “New and enhanced express bus service.”
