On Sat., Mar. 17, TTC customers will ride free from 4 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. on the 501 Queen, 504 King and 514 Cherry routes courtesy of Jameson Irish Whiskey, providing Torontonians with a safe ride to and from local St. Patrick’s Day festivities.
To help revellers make the most of their St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, Jameson and the TTC have partnered with Canadian indie rock band Hollerado to perform for customers on select streetcars on these routes from 4-7 p.m.
“The TTC is proud to partner with Jameson Irish Whiskey to offer safe, reliable service free of charge this St. Patrick’s Day," said TTC Chair Josh Colle. “We hope customers will take advantage of the complimentary service and have a safe and fun celebration.”
“St. Patrick’s Day is one of our most celebrated days of the year, with many consumers raising a glass of Jameson and Ginger to celebrate,” said Maria Sweeney, Senior Brand Manager, Jameson Irish Whiskey. “Our partnership with the TTC demonstrates Jameson’s commitment to enjoying St. Patrick’s Day while ensuring responsible consumption.”
Fare boxes on buses and legacy streetcars on 501 and 504 routes will be covered, as will PRESTO card readers. Customers connecting to the subway or another route from the 501, 504 or 514 must pay their fare when entering or boarding at their transfer point.
Jameson Irish Whiskey and the TTC encourage Torontonians to take public transit; please don't drink and drive.
