In Memoriam

The TTC will join individuals and communities across the nation in marking Remembrance Day by halting all of its vehicles for two minutes at 11 a.m. today. Subways will be held at platforms, buses and streetcars will remain at the nearest regular stop they hit just prior to 11 a.m., and Wheel-Trans vehicles will pull over. Regular service will resume as soon as the two minute pause has elapsed. Though this is a fairly common way for transit services to honour the moment—the TTC told Torontoist yesterday that they have been doing this for years—the TTC’s stoppage tends to fly under the radar, and is not, perhaps, quite as well known as it could or should be. Should you be riding in, waiting for, or stuck behind a TTC vehicle at 11 a.m. this morning, please be patient: the two minutes in question are for a very good cause. In addition, veterans will be able to travel for free today on Toronto, Mississauga, York, and Durham transit services.
