Getting Around

It's easy to access the event by foot, bike, transit or car. Take advantage of all-night TTC service on part of the subway system and the car free zones.

On Foot

New this year, partial road closures of Queen Street West, Bay Street, Queens Quay and Queen's Park will provide safe and easy access to many projects for pedestrians. This is to ensure the safety of large audiences and improve free-flowing access to the art. 

By Bike

Cycling is a great way to see as many projects across the city as possible. Don't forget a safety light, bell and helmet. If you don't have your own bike, check out Bike Share, Toronto's public bike system.
