TTC to close out 100th anniversary celebration with a look to the future

The TTC is celebrating 100 years of transit service in Toronto and before the anniversary comes to a close, it has one more special surprise in store. Starting Mon., Apr. 4, the TTC is inviting students to share their vision for the next 100 years of transit in Toronto and participate in the TTC 100 Contest.

“This is an exciting opportunity to engage with the some of the youngest and most creative members of our community. I look forward to seeing the interesting and innovative ideas these current and future transit riders have for the next hundred years of the TTC,” said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson.

“Innovating for the future is so important to the TTC and who better to show us the way than our youngest riders. We want to maintain and expand our system so that it’s better than the way we found it,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “The TTC has played a vital role in this city for the last 100 years. The only thing I know that won’t change in the next 100 is our unwavering dedication to all the people in and around this city who will continue to rely on us.”

Students are encouraged to get creative and illustrate their vision in a photo, photo collage, drawing, short essay or model of their idea – the sky’s the limit! Once all entries have been received, a panel of experts will review them. Contest winners will have the opportunity to work with current TTC employees to refine their creations and assess the feasibility of their ideas.

All school-aged children across the GTA are welcome to participate. Independent and group submissions will be accepted in the following categories:

- Vehicles
- Infrastructure
- Safety
- Expansion
- People

The contest is free to enter. Entries can be emailed to or mailed to TTC Head Office at 1900 Yonge St. and need to be received by 11:59 p.m. on May 15, 2022.

Winners will be announced on on Jun. 8, 2022 and will also be contacted directly.

All those selected will be invited to attend a Transit Fair on Aug. 22 at Nathan Phillips Square to present their ideas to the public. Successful ideas will also be incorporated into a community art mural produced by a local Toronto artist, which will be installed at a TTC station. Winners will also receive a prize pack of TTC merchandise.
