Are you heading out on the TTC this Friday? Your ride could be free! How? Why? Well, the Toronto Blue Jays are back and a partnership with the TTC and a vodka brand are giving out complimentary streetcar rides to celebrate.
According to Polar Ice, after two seasons of playing away from home, the city is celebrating the return of their favourite baseball team, and it is offering complimentary streetcar rides to help them travel to and from their game-day activities.
Free rides on the 504 King will run on Friday April 8 from 5:30 pm to 11:30 pm.

“Thank you to Polar Ice Vodka and the TTC for partnering up and providing free King Street streetcar rides to Blue Jays fans as we gear up to celebrate an exciting home opener in Toronto. I know residents in this city have been waiting to see baseball fully back in Toronto this summer and these complimentary rides will help ensure that fans get to and from the game safely,” says Mayor John Tory.
“Let’s get ready for an exciting baseball season in Toronto! Let’s Go Blue Jays!”
So how is it going to work?
Fare machines and PRESTO card readers will be covered and no fares will be required on all 504 King streetcars between 5:30 pm to 11:30pm, so you’ll just need to hop on.
Enjoy the ride!
