It's easy to navigate Scotiabank Nuit Blanche on foot, by bike, or by public transportation. Many of the locations are clustered together in a way that allows you to see many projects in one area. Take it slow and plan your night around one zone in particular, or pick up a TTC Day Pass and take the TTC to visit all three Zones.
Just be sure to take some time to prepare a plan of attack. It’s impossible to see it all in one night!
