Media Advisory: Additional TTC Service for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 25, 2007) - The TTC will operate a special shuttle bus service as well as overnight subway service in the central core area during the popular Scotiabank Nuit Blanche cultural event that takes place from the evening of Saturday, September 29th to the morning of Sunday, September 30th.

The TTC Nuit Blanche shuttle bus service will link more than a dozen downtown venues. Buses will run every 15 minutes, and regular TTC fares will apply. Shuttle service will run from 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 29th to 7:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 30th.

In addition to the special shuttle bus service, the core of the TTC's subway system will also operate all night. Instead of subway service ending at approximately 2:00 a.m., trains will continue to operate until approximately 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning on the Yonge-University Subway between Eglinton Station and St. George Station, and on the Bloor-Danforth Subway between Christie Station and Broadview Station. Both lines will see trains arrive approximately every 12 minutes. Sunday subway service resumes at 9 a.m., as usual.

This marks the first time the TTC has kept subway service running during the overnight period.

Additional service will also be added to downtown overnight bus and streetcar routes serving Scotiabank Nuit Blanche sites.

To round out the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche experience, purchase a TTC Day Pass.
For $8.50, a group of up to six people, (maximum 2 adults over the age of 19) can enjoy unlimited travel on the TTC from the beginning of service on Saturday, September 29th at 5:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 30th.

From sunset on Saturday, September 29 to sunrise on Sunday, September 30, 2007, the public will rediscover Toronto through Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, a free signature event produced by the City of Toronto. Featured will be 195 contemporary art projects created by more than 500 artists in three distinct exhibition zones throughout the city.
