TTC Shows Its Pride

The transit system celebrates World Pride with a commemorative plaque, special passes, and a rainbow bus.

WorldPride kicks off on June 20, and the TTC and Pride Toronto want you to ride with pride.

A special bus sporting a rainbow of colours will be running on the 94 Wellesley route (and making an appearance at the Pride parade on June 29).

When you board that festive bus—or even one of the TTC’s less vibrant vehicles—during the event, you’ll be able to pay your fare via one of two Pride-themed passes, which went on sale yesterday. (A WorldPride TTC event family/group weekend pass is available for $22 and an individual weekly pass can be picked up for $39.25.)

And long after both the Pride bus and WorldPride have come and gone, riders entering Wellesley Station will be greeted by a commemorative plaque, unveiled yesterday:

This commemorates the partnership between the Toronto Transit Commission and Pride Toronto during WorldPride 2014 Toronto, June 20–29, 2014.

Just as WorldPride connects LGBTQ communities all around the world, the TTC takes great pride in connecting people all across Toronto.

Situated at the heart of the Church-Wellesley Village, Wellesley Station serves as a public gateway welcoming everyone to celebrate the vibrant diversity of Canada’s largest LGBTQ community.
