  TTC bus
by coolpanda87

Toronto's bus system mostly connects to a subway station, & usually operates on one street. (Toronto has a grid street pattern) If you are in downtown, rarely do you have to take the bus, for streetcars & subway already serve most of it.

On main arteries, it is usually on time, though that gurantee does not extend to smaller residential bus routes.

TTC buses are relatively old, but are kept pretty clean for their age. Usually maintenance is okay, but sometimes the buses loses heat in winter & others do not have airconditioning in the summer. It relies on an open hatch at the roof for fresh air. Bus rides are sometimes a little bumpy & the brakes could squeak...

Please check the transit bus poles for bus schedules & route maps.

Important Routes to note:

192 - Airport Rocket from Toronto Pearson Int'l Airport to Kipling Subway station

165A - Weston Rd. North with seasonal serivce to Paramount Canada's Wonderland

100 - Flemingdon Park N to Ontario Science Centre

85A/86A - Sheppard Ave. E to Toronto Zoo

If you are planning to buy TTC tokens, remember to separate them in a different wallet or bag, for they are easily confused with money, especially Canadian currency!
