TTC fares may be going up tomorrow, but New Year’s partiers won’t need to worry about any of that tonight. That’s because the entire TTC system will be free to ride between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Also, most surface routes will have extended late-night hours, and subways will continue running until after 3 a.m. More details are in the TTC’s press release. The gratis transit service comes courtesy of Corby Spirit and Wine.

For those who don’t have any plans tonight (or those who couldn’t get a reservation at one of the New Year’s Eve restaurants we recommended two weeks ago) tonight’s outdoor celebration at Nathan Phillips Square is free to attend, but wear layers: Environment Canada expects the temperature to get down to -12.
