Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) will operate eleven routes in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, with a total length of 305.8Km. They are generally located in the downtown near the waterfront of the lake of Toronto. Many of the steel rails of these routes have been there for more than 100 years. The street cars are moved with electricity and share the streets and traffic with normal vehicles.

 

-  HOW TO USE THE TTC IN TORONTO

 

The following example will illustrate how to use the TTC in Toronto:

 

-        Suppose that you have to go from point A (Victoria Park/Finch) to point B (Exhibition Place). In order to arrive to this point B you will have to do the following:

 

 

NOTE: These information charts for the public can be found in each TTC stop. They are not maps and they are not drawn according to a scale.

 

  1. Take a bus in Finch bus stop (routes #39A, B, C, D, E o F) with Victoria Park and it will take you to the subway station in Finch (yellow line, first station to the East). You should pay the right price and deposit $2,75 (2006-2007) in the case of the bus (drivers do not handle money). Buses only stop and pick up passengers in the indicated stops.
  2. In Finch station walk from the buses parking (within the station) to the underground station to take the train towards the south. There get on the subway (yellow line) to Toronto downtown, where you will travel all over different stations up to Bathurts station.
  3. Get off the train in Bathurts station and walk to the street cars parking within the station. Do not go out from the station to the street, if you do it, you will have to pay the entrance to the station again. In the parking take the street car #511 Exhibition – South, which will take you to Bathurst Street in the south direction.
  4. In this way you will arrive to the indicated place: Exhibition Place

 

Note: In order to arrive earlier you can also get off in Yonge/Bloor station and take the subway to the west (green line) up to Bathurst station.

IMPORTANT

 

There is a great difference between the public transportation in Canada (sometimes just used by a small part of the population) and many countries, where it is used by most people. Study thoroughly the organisation of the local transportation system, schedule, itineraries, routes, etc. to learn to use it correctly and arrive in time when necessary. Check the itineraries you can take in your area, and make sure there will be available transportation at the time you need it. Buses, for example, which will take you to industrial areas where you will most probably have job interviews, may just work in the first hours in the morning and then a couple of hours in the afternoon. If you make an appointment for a job interview in a distant place at a different time and have no other means of transportation, it will very difficult for you to get to the place and then lose your job opportunity. Besides, check if you should pay any additional charges for the area you have to go to (which applies in Toronto if you go to the North of Steeles).
