The TTC will have reduced rides over the holidays but free service on New Year’s Eve.

As police across the GTA conduct holiday RIDE spotchecks, the TTC and sponsor Corby Spirit and Wine are hoping to encourage people to consume alcohol responsibly, and take safe transportation (instead of getting behind the wheel).

Free service will begin at 7p.m. on Dec. 31, 2015 and run until 7 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2016.

Before then, however, there will be a modified holiday schedule. Check out the details below or click here for the TTC website.
