Toronto Transit Commission


Officially, the TTC says it’s providing “regular weekday service” during the holiday period — from Monday, December 19 until Friday, December 30.

Unofficially, though, we know that, in previous years, the TTC has also decreased the frequency of service along many routes because it expects fewer passengers to be riding transit vehicles during the holidays. This week, “regular weekday” likely really means less frequent service along many bus, streetcar and subway routes, with service levels similar to what it provides July and August.

The TTC operates with holiday schedules Boxing Day, Monday, December 26 and Tuesday, December 27. With holiday schedules, buses, streetcars and trains operate as frequently as Sundays, but start earlier, about 6 a.m.

It’s cancelling extra service to and from high schools from Tuesday, December 27 until Friday, January 6, 2017.


Many TTC routes

Buses, streetcars and trains operate with less frequent service during rush hours Mondays to Fridays from Monday, December 19 until Friday, December 30, except holidays.

Regular Monday-to-Friday rush-hour service resumes Monday, January 2, 2017.

We’ll provide our unofficial guide to TTC services, with our ‘educated guess’ about the TTC’s Monday-to-Friday service levels during the holidays in an upcoming Transit Toronto post.
