Going to Toronto? Caution for fans

Recommended Posts

A caution to all fans going to the Toronto shows; because of the Pan-Am games, the third lane of the Gardiner Expressway and other area highways such as the 401 now have a restricted use. They've been turned into special HOV lanes and you will need to have three people in your car to use them, or else risk an $85 fine. The lanes have special markings, so you can't end up in them by accident. As a result, traffic in the regular lanes may be slower/more crowded, so give yourself extra time. This applies to all the area highways, but the Gardiner Expressway is of biggest note because it is literally a stone's throw away from the venue. If you're going downtown Toronto, even from Pearson airport, you'll have to use it, so make sure you're careful about the HOV lane.

This is a great head's-up. If you're coming in from the 401 you would do well to park at Yorkdale and take the TTC downtown to the ACC.

 

Parking downtown has already increased by a significant amount in some lots so that's another good reason to avoid driving downtown.

Be careful parking at Yorkdale.....make sure you park in the TTC section and not the mall section or you will be ticketed. Alternative is Wilson Station, which is the next exit past Yorkdale.

Ok....so heads up....there is technically no longer a TTC parking area at Yorkdale. Security was handing out cards to tell us that when we walked through the mall to our cars last night; however, we did not get a ticket and frankly, I can't see how they can enforce this when for all anyone knows, we are hanging out at Moxie's Grill or the movie theatre in the mall!
