TTC first class

How to ride the TTC in first class

If you happened to be riding the TTC last Sunday, you might have got the rare chance to experience in-ride beverage service. That's right — in its latest subway intervention, Improv in Toronto took to the subway equipped as "flight" attendants ready to serve weary travellers.

"Our mission was simple, transform the old every day nature of riding the subway into a luxury flight experience, making it more a comfortable, enjoyable, and eventful ride," reads a recent blog post about the event. "Equipped with snacks, drinks and blankets, our sharp looking flight subway attendants and captain tended to the riders of this particular train. We went and offered these amenities to each of the riders, hopefully making this particular subway ride, a memorable one."

Why doesn't this happen every day? Attention Karen Stintz, Andy Byford and Chris Upfold — can you get on this like right away? To see how it all played out, check out the video below.
