To reach the Air Canada Centre, use Line 1 to Union Station. For fans attending events at Exhibition Place, use the 511 Bathurst southbound from Bathurst Station, the 509 Harbourfront from Union Station or the 29 Dufferin southbound from Dufferin Station. Those taking the 509 or 511 streetcars will need to transfer to a bus to continue on to Exhibition Place due to ongoing track and construction work at Exhibition loop.

Festivities will require the 6 Bay bus to divert this weekend from 7 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It will use Adelaide and Richmond Sts. via Yonge St. and Queens Quay.
