Getting Around

By subway/streetcar/bus:

Toronto has a really impressive public transport system which is easy to use and pretty reasonably priced. Subways run on three lines, the streetcars cover 11 different routes and bus services criss-cross the city. If you think you're going to be using public transport a lot on any given day, pick up a TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) Day Pass costing $10 which covers all of these different services.

By bike:

This city is home to plenty of bike paths so cycling is a popular way to get around.
