TTC adds service for customers heading to the CNE

Beginning Fri., Aug. 18 until Mon., Sept. 4, the TTC will be increasing service for the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) to help customers get to and from the festivities as quickly and easily as possible.


Several TTC surface routes will have enhanced service, while select others will be changing to accommodate the increased volume of vehicles. There will also be additional customer service support at high-traffic TTC locations to direct customers to the most suitable route.


Service changes are as follows:


  • 29 Dufferin/929 Dufferin Express: Service will be increased on this route. Dedicated CNE express shuttle buses will run non-stop between Dufferin Station and Dufferin Gate Loop.

  • 509 Harbourfront: Will have additional, frequent streetcar service between Union Station and Exhibition Loop.

  • 510 Spadina: Will operate between Spadina Station and Spadina Ave./Queen's Quay daily from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. during the CNE. Customers who need to connect to Union Station during those times can take advantage of the more frequent 509 service which also stops at Spadina Ave./Queen's Quay.

  • 511 Bathurst: Will have additional, frequent service between Bathurst Station and Exhibition Loop. CNE express shuttle buses will also operate between Bathurst Station and Exhibition Loop.


On Sat., Aug. 19, the TTC is proud to offer free transit to active members of the Canadian military and veterans, along with one companion, to commemorate the 2023 CNE Warrior’s Day Parade. Canadian military members, veterans and peacekeepers will be asked to show their service medals/ribbons to receive free TTC service.


The TTC is committed to keeping customers informed about work and events that impact service and about alternate routes. For the most up-to-date information, visit, follow @TTCNotices on Twitter or sign up for e-Alerts.
