Daily Travels Roundup

The TTC day-pass gives you a unlimited travel for a single person on weekdays, and for a family of two adults and up to four children, or a family of one adult and up to five children on weekends and holidays. It costs $8.50, so it saves money for anyone making more than four adult trips. Here's how I put it to good use:
  • Subway from York Mills to Dundas to get a text book from my locker.
  • Subway from Dundas to York Mills to put the text book in a safe place.
  • Subway & 124 SUNNYBROOK bus from York Mills to Glendon College to meet up with some close friends.
  • 124 SUNNYBROOK bus & subway from Glendon College to Osgoode to spend a night on the town.
  • Subway from Osgoode to Museum station to get a late-night snack.
    • A short walk from Bloor & Avenue to Yonge & Bloor, where I saw a short stretch of streetcar tracks coming to the surface under the worn pavement of the intersection with Bay Street. The mystery track was turning from westbound Bloor to northbound Bay, though streetcars haven't traveled along those streets since 1966 & 1963, respectively.
  • Subway from Bloor-Yonge to York Mills to end the evening.
A few weeks later, I met some friends downtown, went east to Scarborough Centre in rush hour, then took the 131E NUGGET bus back to the subway. It's not as fast as the RT, but it's ideal for people who don't want to deal with the crowds.
