March break transit breaks
for kids and families, March 14 to 18

Transit systems in Niagara Falls, Peterborough, St. Catharines and Toronto are making it easier for kids to get around, while they’re enjoying their break from school next week.

Oakville Transit no longer offers high-school students Freedom Passes during March break.

Niagara Falls

Elementary- and secondary-school students can ride Niagara Falls Transit buses and WEGO buses serving the Red route for just 50 cents next week, starting Saturday, March 12 and continuing until Sunday, March 20.


Each March, Peterborough Transit gives all grade 8 students in Peterborough a March Break transit pass.

The goal is to prepare grade-eighters for high school and independent travel by teaching them how to ride Peterborough Transit to explore the city.

Grade 8 Transit Quest starts Friday, March 11 and ends Monday, March 28.

St. Catharines

The St. Catharines Transit Commission is offering its Family Pass every day of the week for March break.

From Monday, March 14 until Friday, March 18, you can buy the All-Day Family Bus Pass for just $7 and go anywhere the SCTC buses go in St. Catharines and Thorold. As many as two adults and three children can all travel together for this once-a-day fare of $7. Just ask the bus driver for your pass, when you board the first bus.

(The pass is always available weekends, so you can also buy and use a pass Saturdays, March 12 and March 19 and Sundays, March 13 and March 20.)


In Toronto, you can buy Day Family / Group Passes every day of the March break to travel with a group anywhere that the TTC can take you — within the city of Toronto — for just $12.

This year, you can buy the passes through TTCconnect, the TTC’s e-ticketing app. The TTC March Break Day Pass is available from Saturday, March 12 until Sunday, March 20.

Group/Family Day Passes are valid from the date on the pass until 5:30 a.m. the next day and are ideal for:

  • one adult and not more than five teens, 13 to 19 years of age; or
  • two adults and not more than four teens; or
  • two adults.

Kids 12 years and younger always ride free of fare on the TTC.

TTCconnect is easy to use and is available for download for iOS or Android devices. You can also buy the March Break Day Pass at TTC collector booths.

You can use each pass for one day only for a group of as many as six people — two adults with no more than five teens age 13 to 19. (Or… one adult with no more than five teens.) Kids 12 years or younger always ride free of fare.

If you plan to use the pass to ride on a TTC bus operating beyond the Toronto city limits — or on an express route that requires an extra fare — you’ll have to add more money into the farebox when you use the Day / Family Pass.
