Scotiabank Nuit Blanche


Getting Around

Leave the car at home and avoid driving downtown. Take advantage of all-night TTC service on part of the subway system and the car free zone along Yonge Street!

      On Foot


The three Exhibitions are close 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 Street and Bloor Street.

      By Bike


Cycling is a great way to see as many projects across the city as possible. Don't forget a safety light, bell and helmet.

Check out BIXI, Toronto's public bike system – $5 will give you unlimited trips (of 30 minutes or less) all night long.
