TTC celebrates Lunar New Year 2022 – Year of the Tiger
Lunar New Year is a celebration to mark the turn of the New Year on the lunar/lunisolar calendar. The TTC is celebrating Lunar New Year for the first time as part of our ongoing commitment to reflect the diverse community that we serve, and promote a sense of belonging for our customers, partners and employees.
Lunar New Year is observed in numerous Asian countries with their own unique traditions, and is widely celebrated by many communities in Toronto with a focus on good fortune and luck for the upcoming year.
The TTC is participating in Lunar New Year this year by wrapping a number of vehicles that will be in service from February 1 to February 15 .
