TTC service information for tonight’s Raptors Game
As the city gears up for a historic Toronto Raptors Game 6 tonight, the TTC is prepared to get fans safely to and from the downtown core.
To ensure everyone enjoys their evening, the TTC will have additional service available:
- Subway service will be extended. The last trains will head northbound from Union Station on both the Yonge and University sides of Line 1 at 2:25 a.m. with connections available to Line 2 at Bloor-Yonge and St George stations, and to Line 4 at Sheppard-Yonge Station.
- Additional subway trains and buses have been scheduled in the downtown core before and after the game with extras on standby to ensure service runs smoothly.
- Extra TTC staff will be situated throughout the subway system and around downtown to help direct customers, answer questions and manage crowding.
Surface connections at all stations are running on regular schedules and will not hold for later subway service. Customers are advised to check regular schedules for their route and plan accordingly. The TTC’s Blue Night Network will run overnight as always but routes through downtown may be required to divert depending on road closures.
Several diversions and short turns will be in place to accommodate crowds and road closures planned for this evening.
There will be no streetcar or bus service in the area east and west between Bathurst St. and Church St. and north and south between College St. and Lake Shore Blvd. The following routes will start short turning at or near those intersections at the end of the third quarter of tonight’s game:
- 6 Bay
- 72 Pape
- 121 Fort York-Esplanade
- 320 Yonge
- 501 Queen
- 504 King
- 505 Dundas

Customers travelling into or out of the downtown core this evening is strongly encouraged to use the TTC. Customers should follow @TTCNotices on Twitter for the most up-to-date service information.
The TTC wishes all Toronto Raptors fans a safe and fun game-watching experience tonight and reminds everyone to party responsibly. Let’s Go Raptors!!
