LEST WE FORGET8 May, 2020
The TTC has a long and rich history of military service. During the Second World War, more than 600 Commission employees enlisted for service. Those names are remembered on the TTC’s Honour Rolls, including the dozen who were killed in action. Over the TTC’s 99-year history, more than 100 of our families have been the recipients of the Memorial (Silver) Cross presented for sons, daughters and family members lost at war.
At 11 a.m. every Remembrance Day, the TTC pauses service for two minutes of silence across the entire network. Current and former members of Canada’s military, and a companion, ride the TTC for free on November 11th.
