Transportation in Toronto
Toronto's subway is the quickest and easiest way to get around. The three main subway lines are all part of one zone, transporting you to most parts of the central area. It can be busy during rush hour.
There are lots of taxis in Toronto, and they'll get you where you want to go in a hurry, including the airport. A 10-15% tip is usual.
Toronto is exceptionally clean for a big city – the fifth largest in North America – so walking is a joy, weather permitting. In winter, the way to get around downtown, and stay warm against the heaps of snow outside, is by taking the PATH. It's a 27km network of underground walkways that meander past hundreds of shops, businesses and medical clinics.
Toronto's plentiful buses have got the Greater Toronto area covered. When the subway stops, they keep going.
Rent your car
Toronto has good road links around Lake Ontario, other Canadian lakes, Montreal and across the US-Canada border to Buffalo. The city’s grid-layout makes it easy to navigate and car parks are indicated by a 'P' in a green circle. On-street parking is restricted to certain times of the day.
You can get single trip transportation tickets or a Day Pass for individuals, families or couples. One ticket is valid for all public transport, except for the GO Trains that take commuters out to the suburbs. You can also purchase a weekly Metropass for access to metro Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton and York – including the GO Trains this time.
