Take the TTC for free this New Year’s Eve

As Torontonians prepare to ring in the new year, the TTC is once again partnering with Corby Spirit and Wine to offer free and enhanced service on New Year's Eve.


“As we bid farewell to 2023 and welcome a new year, I want to express my appreciation to all the TTC employees who will be working through the night, making our city's New Year's Eve celebrations safer,” said Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow. “I urge all Torontonians to take advantage of the free TTC service and enjoy the festivities responsibly. Let's start 2024 on a positive note!”


“The TTC is the greenest, most convenient, and safest way to get around the city, and best of all it’s free this New Year’s Eve. I urge everyone to make smart choices and take transit, because no one should be driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” said TTC Chair Jamaal Myers. “On behalf of the Board, I thank all TTC employees for their dedication and commitment to serving the people of Toronto year-round, and I wish everyone a safe and happy new year.”


“I want to extend my gratitude to all of the hardworking employees of the TTC who go above and beyond all year to ensure our customers reach their destinations safely and on time,” said TTC CEO Rick Leary. “I also want to thank Corby for their generous partnership that will once again help residents and visitors get around the city at no cost this New Year’s Eve. I wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday season, and a happy new year.”
