Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

Getting Around

Avoid driving downtown. Take advantage of all-night TTC service and the car free zone along Yonge Street!

      On Foot


This year, the exhibitions are even closer together and walkable so you can see more in less time. To provide more space for pedestrians, some key road closures will be in place including Yonge Street between Front and Bloor streets.

Event road closure dates and times.
