Veterans ride for free on Remembrance Day

On November 11, York Region Transit (YRT) and Mobility Plus rides are free to veterans and one companion. Immediate family of a deceased veteran may also ride free.

Veterans must identify themselves to YRT and Mobility Plus operators by showing a uniform, medal, beret or blazer. Immediate family of deceased veterans may ride free by presenting an item that identifies their relationship to the veteran, such as an identification card or service papers.

To honour the sacrifices made for all Canadians, at 11 a.m. on November 11, all YRT and Mobility Plus services will pull over to the curb for two minutes of silence, safety permitting.
