TTC celebrates Pride with extra service and support for the 2SLGBTQ+ community

The TTC is sharing important information for customers attending this weekend’s Pride Toronto Festival. Festival areas and viewing points for the Trans March, Dyke March, and Pride Parade routes are easily accessible by taking the TTC, making transit the fastest, safest, and greenest way to the celebrations.


On Sun., Jun. 30, the TTC will be running extra subway service on Line 1 Yonge-University and Line 2 Bloor-Danforth to accommodate increased demand for the Pride Parade, and additional TTC staff will be deployed to assist customers. Bus and streetcar routes will also be adjusted to accommodate road closures for the various events happening throughout the festival.


A highlight of the weekend will be the specially wrapped all-electric Pride Bus, a symbol of the TTC’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. During Sunday’s Pride Parade, the bus will be joined by up to 250 TTC employees, family, and friends marching in solidarity with the 2SLGBTQ+ community.


The TTC is also opening its Bloor-Yonge Capacity Improvements Project community office at 25 Hayden St. on Sunday between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to visit the office to refill their water bottles and learn more about the $1.5 billion expansion and rehabilitation of Bloor-Yonge Station.
