While there are undoubtedly benefits to living at home – no rent, rats or rez food – it can be a real pain when it comes to getting just about anywhere via the TTC. So commuters, listen up!
Get yourself a Metropass It’ll cost you $104 with a valid photo I.D. Getting a pass is worth it just to avoid tokens and change. When you’re drunk at 3 a.m. on a Wednesday night, you’ll be happy you got it.
Be smart about your schedule Unless you enjoy having your personal space violated, try your best to avoid classes that end anywhere between 4 and 6 p.m. Rush hour and post-lecture restlessness do not mix well.
Beware of time The subway stops running at 1:30 a.m. So if you’re planning on staying out late, you’ll have to use night buses, which have different routes and times. Certain streetcar lines, such as the 501 on Queen Street, run 24/7. Plan ahead how you’re getting home or be ready to dish out some cash on a cab.
The Request Stop program If you’re traveling alone between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., you can ask the driver to drop you off between stops.
