    I’d love to, it just cost 30 dollars a day to take public transportation and the times are all off for my shift work. It just isn’t worth it for me to take public transportation.

    The fun and joy of living an hour outside of Toronto and having to travel into TO to work.
    Go transit then TTC, just isn’t worth the hassle especially when you don’t spend $30 a day on gas.

    Is where you are under STM? If I don’t have a monthly pass ($150) I have to buy ticket for RTL just to get on the island then buy ticket from STM again to go anywhere, minimum 4 separate ticket per day. Not to mention time wasted. Drive to my girlfriend’s old place in CDN takes 30 minutes, almost two hours by public transit.

    no we don’t have monthly passes here any more and in order to get a discount you have to take a certain amount of trips but because i work shift work, i never hit the proper amount.

    But when you buy a pass you also have to factor in that you can now get the Transit Pass credit on your tax return. Bet you didn’t think of that one, eh?

    a few companies are doing this, and this would work for me if i lived in the city or maybe just use it from the go train to the office.



    @doobie
    , yes i use the presto card and I can claim that on taxes.

    Im lucky in that I can walk to the commuter train (under 5 minutes) that takes me directly into downtown, 5 minutes from the office

    35 minutes on the train, 45 door to door. $90 or so a month pass.

    That’s not bad Eric.

    I can walk to the corner TTC bus stop in 5 minutes, wait for the Subway train to go one stop, then another bus about 6 stops. $120 for a monthly pass. Total time to work is 45 minutes to 1 hour travel time.

    I use to walk to work in 40 minutes or less, I can bike to work in just under 10 minutes and the drive is 10 – 15 minutes.

    I have not taken public transit for almost a decade now, just hate that fact that every other way to work is quicker.

    That’s pretty good, consider it’ll take you just as long to snail down either 40 or 20.

    30 bucks a day?? Wow, okay I can see why you don’t want to do that,

    Buy a moped with a remote starter and a heated jacket, that should do the trick lol, sorry couldn’t hold back 😉

    I see you can’t buy monthly passes, I am pretty lucky, 25 to 30 minutes drive from way out in the West island, to ville saint laurent, for me to commute to, And From work.

    Yah i live about 40 mins away from the downtown core where i work. No way a moped would work, maybe a motorcycle. I’d love to live closer but i couldn’t afford closer, at close to a million dollars i’d have to eat cardboard to afford that and even then i might not lol.

    This is seriously the future, it looks like they use less factory workers because of this conveyor belt.

    I like the way the rollers adjust to send product to line up.

    I worked in a warehouse back in 1985 that had automated forklifts that followed signals in the floor to get from one building to another without a driver.
