Your summer day trips just got better! ParkBus is bringing back its TD Rouge Express, a free shuttle bus that runs from Toronto to Rouge National Urban Park from June to October.

Every Saturday and Sunday from June 17th to October 14th, the bus will take you from downtown Toronto straight to the park, completely free.

You’ll be dropped off in the Toronto Zoo day-use area, so you can also use this opportunity to visit the Zoo.

To make use of the free shuttle, all you have to do is book your spot in advance online.

You will need to provide a $15 credit card deposit to secure your spot, which will be refunded when you arrive to claim your seat.

Those planning to visit the Toronto Zoo must have a pre-purchased ticket prior to boarding the bus.

There will be two free shuttle buses running, one with a pickup time at 9 AM and another one at 12 PM on each of the scheduled days.

The downtown Toronto pickup location is about 100 meters north of the Yonge-Bloor subway entrance, near the Yonge Street entrance.

Passengers are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to keep things moving on schedule.

Also important to keep in mind that school buses are used for this route, which means no A/C or bathrooms on board. But hey, a free ride is a free ride!

Ready to do some summer sightseeing? Book your spot on the TD Rouge Express while you can.


Where: Pickup at 34 Asquith Avenue
When: Saturdays and Sundays from June 17th to October 14th, 2023
