TTC offers free rides on Warriors' Day for military personnel and veterans

In honour of Warriors’ Day this coming Saturday, the TTC will offer free rides to active members of the Canadian military and veterans, along with one companion each, on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Canadian military members, veterans and peacekeepers are required to show their service medals/ribbons to receive free access to TTC buses, streetcars, Wheel-Trans, subway and SRT.

“I want to thank the TTC for offering free rides on Warriors’ Day to active members of the Canadian military and veterans, along with a companion. This is a small way in which our city and the TTC recognizes the sacrifice made by military personnel and veterans to protect our country,” said Mayor John Tory.

“Warriors’ Day is an opportunity to recognize and honour our Canadian veterans,” said TTC Chair Jaye Robinson. “The TTC is proud to offer current Canadian military personnel and veterans free public transit service to thank them for their service to our nation.”

“The TTC is honoured to continue our long-standing tradition of providing rides free of charge to all current members of the Canadian Armed Forces in uniform as well as war and peacekeeping veterans wearing military service medals or ribbons on Warriors’ Day,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary.

Each year, the TTC recognizes the valuable contributions of the Canadian military, veterans and peacekeepers by providing them free travel on Warriors’ Day and on Remembrance Day.

The 2022 Warriors’ Day Parade at the Canadian National Exhibition will be held in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the parade.
