TTC to 'stay up all night' for Nuit Blanche this weekend

For the first time since 2019, Nuit Blanche is set to return in person this weekend. To help customers travel around the city and view the exhibits with ease, the TTC will be operating all-night subway service this Sat., Oct. 1 through to the morning of Sun., Oct. 2.


Service on Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 will run overnight until Sun., Oct. 2 at 8 a.m., when regularly scheduled Sunday service resumes. Night buses and streetcars will operate as usual. In addition, there are no scheduled subway closures this weekend.


“We’re pleased to help welcome Nuit Blanche back to our city for the first time since the pandemic began, by providing a safe and reliable transit option for riders,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “I encourage everyone to take the TTC to get out and see the exhibitions, including the art at subway locations.”


Two of the exhibitions will be located on TTC property - one at North York Centre Station and the other at Kipling Station. Designed by artist Teho Ropeyarn, and titled “Anab amalitadthi wutpu anaamu atinyima anab apudthamang anama,” the large-scale prints explore spiritual narratives between people, land and ancestors. The title translates to “We inherit this ancient blood, and our ancient land, water and sky.”


Customers can enter North York Centre and Scarborough Centre stations at no charge from 7 p.m. Sat., Oct. 1 until 7 a.m. Sun., Oct. 2. Customers should keep their transfer, or their tapped PRESTO card/PRESTO Ticket as Proof-of-Payment and be prepared to show it to TTC staff if requested.

  • 19 Bay
  • 72B Pape
  • 121 Esplanade – River
  • 172 Cherry
  • 501 Queen
