Scotiabank Nuit Blanche is right around the corner, so it's time to get ready for a fun-filled night on September 29! Here are some updates to help you make the most of your night:

To make getting around easy, the TTC Scotiabank Nuit Blanche Shuttle will run from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. providing transportation between all three zones. The Subway will be open all night on selected routes (bottom 'U' of University/Spadina line, Yonge/ University from St. George to Eglinton, Bloor/Danforth from Christie to Broadview). TTC Day passes for September 29 will be accepted until 9 a.m. on Sunday, September 30.

You can listen to messages from Exhibition artists by texting an artist's SMS keyword to TXTART (898278), then entering their extension number. Look for keywords printed on signage at each location, or find them online.

UPDATE: You can hear all ARTIST TALK audio files on the site, download the ones you're interested in, or download them all so you can put them on your mp3 player as you roam around on September 29.

Tell everyone about your favourite projects while at the event. Text your comments to TXTART (898278) and watch them appear on the interactive screens located near the Scotiabank Hubs.
