As is common practice for Warriors’ Day at the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), veterans of the Canadian military ride free on many of the local transit agencies. A veteran will be allowed to bring a companion with them. The free ride also applies to families of deceased veterans with some agencies.
Veterans should wear their uniforms, medals, or something that would specify that he/she is a veteran. Families of deceased veterans should bring some sort of identification.
The following transit agencies have announced that veterans may ride free on Warriors’ Day:
- Brampton Transit
- Durham Region Transit
- GO Transit
- Grand River Transit
- Guelph Transit
- Mississauga Transit (MiWay)
- Toronto Transit Commission (TTC)
- York Region Transit
This year is the 95th Warriors’ Day at the CNE. Let’s get out and thank our troops.
