Nuit Blanche is back in Toronto this weekend and this year the TTC is playing an even bigger role. For the first time, the annual all-night contemporary art event will extend to Scarborough with art installations in most Line 3 stations.
To ensure Torontonians have every opportunity to explore the vinyl installations, fare will be free at any Line 3 station between 7 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday.
The TTC wants to help customers make the most of the festival and will once again extend subway service on Lines 1, 2 and 3. The subway will run every 10-15 minutes on Lines 1, 2 and 3 from 1:30 a.m. on Sunday morning until regularly scheduled service resumes at 8 a.m.
Buses on the 300 Bloor-Danforth and 320 Yonge routes will run all night as scheduled. Line 4 Sheppard will operate on normal Saturday night/Sunday morning schedules.
Nuit Blanche festivities will result in diversions on the 6 Bay and 501/301 Queen routes. Customers are advised to check ttc.ca and follow @TTCnotices for more details and real-time service updates.
On Sunday morning, those participating in CIBC’s Run for the Cure can also take advantage of the added subway service on Lines 1, 2 and 3.
The following surface routes will be diverting to accommodate the event:
- 5 Avenue Road
- 94 Wellesley
- 505 Dundas
- 506 Carlton
- 300 Bloor-Danforth
