The TTC is totally jammed today with Toronto Raptors fans
If you're trying to get anywhere on the TTC this morning, prepare to get intimate with some red jersey-wearing, purple flag-waving fans.
Subways and streetcars this morning are filled with fans on their way to the celebratory madness, to the chagrin of those who couldn't get skip work like everyone else.
If you are headed to see the #Raptors #parade, as always, don't trust the @TTChelps. Another day of useless service and 30 minutes waiting time. #ttc #ridiculous #commute #Toronto #TorontoRaptors pic.twitter.com/6b02AGvPnE— Alessio Demartis (@alessiodemartis) June 17, 2019
While subway trains appear to be functioning mostly on time, streetcars will be a trickier issue, given the number of road closures today.
The TTC's Brad Ross has advised everyone to ditch the cars today, so it's no surprise our entire transit system is completely packed.
Half of the people on the TTC this morning are in Raptors gear and off to the parade. I’m off to work as usual, sigh.— 🐦Christielli ⚾️🏳️🌈 (@christielli) June 17, 2019
Up to 2 million people (so basically, the entirety of Toronto) is expected to participate in the parade festivities today.
It likely won't get much quieter during the duration of the parade, and you can bet your it's going to get even busier in and around Osgoode and Queen stations after the rally at Nathan Phillips Square.
Prayers to Saint Nick Nurse that everyone gets where they're going safe and sound. #WeTheNorthbound.
