The fifth annual Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is upon us, and we all know what that means: road closures. With 155 venues taking part, it’s to be expected. (Or maybe the city should stick those art lovers in a park with all the runners).
On Saturday, Oct. 2, there will be several minor road and lane closures throughout the city from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3. The closures are:
- Yonge St., between Front St. and Bloor St. W.
- Bloor St. W., between Yonge St. and Bedford Rd.
- Bay St., between Dundas St. W. and Richmond St. W.
- Queen St. E., between Victoria St. and University Ave.
Expect delays. There will be a slight impact on TTC routes, however, there will be extra service for the event.
There’s a special all-day event pass for $10, which allows unlimited travel for up to six people (two adults, and four youths) from the start of service on Saturday until 9 a.m. on Sunday.
The Bloor-Danforth line between Keele and Woodbine stations and the Yonge-University-Spadina line between St. Clair West and Eglintion stations will be operating all night. From 1:30 a.m. to 7 a.m., trains will come every 10-15 minutes.
All-night bus service will connect with subways at Keele, Woodbine, Eglinton and St. Clair West stations. The 300 Bloor-Danforth bus route will operate in two separate sections, west from Keele to Kipling and Pearson Airport; and east from Woodbine to Warden and Kennedy stations. The 320 Yonge bus route will operate north from Eglinton Station to Steeles Ave. Downsview station shuttle buses will operate north from St. Clair West to Downsview station, serving the Spadina subway stations along the way.
Free all-night parking will be provided at TTC commuter parking lots.
