Many ways to access Royal Agricultural Winter Fair during construction
  
The TTC is increasing bus service to Exhibition Place to allow residents and visitors to access the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, taking place November 2-11. Due to construction on Fleet St., TTC streetcars will not be running into the CNE grounds during the event, however, there are still a number of easy ways to get to the event.

Transit Service:
  • From Bathurst subway station: take the 511 Bathurst streetcar to Bathurst St. and Lake Shore Blvd. W., and transfer to the 509 Harbourfront bus, which will enter and exit via the Princes’ Gates
  • From Union subway station: take the 510 Spadina or 511 Bathurst streetcars to Bathurst St. and Lake Shore Blvd. W., and transfer to the 509 Harbourfront bus, which will enter and exit via the Princes’ Gates
  • From Dufferin subway station: take the 29D Dufferin bus into the CNE grounds to the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair

TTC personnel will be on hand to assist with loading and questions.

Vehicle Access:
  • Access will be available to Exhibition Place at Strachan Ave. in both directions. The “No Right Turn” restriction for traffic traveling southbound on Strachan Ave. will be removed.
  • Westbound Fleet St. will be open between Strachan Ave. and Fort York Blvd. for cars and mid-sized vehicles. Large transports will have to enter and exit the Gore Park lot from Lake Shore Blvd. W. Cars will be able to turn right in and right out of the Gore Park lot from the south side of Fleet St. in an easterly direction only. Entrance to Garrison Rd. from Fleet St. will remain closed. Access to the Fort is available through the parking lot on Strachan Ave., just north of Fleet St., or from the entrance off of Fort York Blvd., north of Fleet St.
  • Fleet St. will be closed in both directions between Fort York Blvd. and Bathurst St. The intersections of Fleet St. and Strachan Ave., and Fleet St. and Fort York Blvd. will be open to traffic.
