Pan Am Games: transit, driving and traffic routes

June 25, 2015

What’s happening?

During the Games and especially in rush hour, the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area will be busier than usual. Traffic measures such as temporary HOV lanes and parking restrictions may affect your regular routine. Be sure to plan ahead and take steps to avoid delays.  

Temporary High Occupancy Vehicle lanes

On some routes, one lane will be converted to a temporary High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane to help athletes and officials get to and from events and make it easier for Ontario families and carpoolers to get around.

Temporary HOV lanes will be open to:

  • accredited Games vehicles used to transport athletes, media, technical officials etc.
  • motor vehicles with 3+ occupants (from June 29 – July 27)
  • motor vehicles with 2+ occupants (from July 28 – August 18)
  • emergency vehicles
  • public transit
  • licensed taxis
  • airport limousines (on provincial highways only)
  • electric vehicles with green licence plates (on provincial highways only)

Temporary HOV lanes will operate from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., and will be clearly marked with signs and pavement markings.

Local traffic changes

Temporary traffic changes such as parking restrictions and turning bans will be in place near events. Read the local plans to see how you may be affected. The proposed plans may change, so be sure to check back frequently for the latest information to help you plan ahead.

There may also be additional closures or restrictions in your area this summer due to construction or other special events, so be sure to plan ahead to avoid delays.

Travel tips

To help reduce traffic and avoid delays you should:

Take public transit

If you’re going to the Games, use your ticket to get on public transit to and from the event for free.

Many public transit providers will be adding or adjusting service during the Games. You should check with your local agency for an up-to-date transit schedule.

Plan your travel

Find transit details for each venue

Carpool

If you carpool, you can use temporary HOV lanes to get around more efficiently and spend less time stuck in traffic.

Find carpooling partners, match trips and more

Find free carpooling parking lots

Walk or cycle

Get into the Games spirit and get active this summer! Avoid traffic by walking or cycling to and from work or for short distance trips.

Get involved in the Games

Watch an event with your friends after work to avoid the rush hour commute. With 51 sports at more than 30 venues across the Greater Toronto Hamilton Area, plus arts and cultural events happening throughout the summer, there is something for everyone.

Find tickets, schedules and events

Explore your commuting options

For the Games, re-time or reduce your commute by asking your employer about flex time or telework to avoid delays, reduce traffic and save time and money.
