TTC’s still crap

Haven’t been on the TTC for around a year because moved. Got on one today to go to the CNE- had to transfer to shuttle. Lmao what a shit show! Took 2 hours LOL from Finch to Union

Thank god I don’t have to deal with this crap regularly anymore. Continues to be the worst run shitportation I’ve ever had to endure.

The schedules are crappy and it just takes too long to get anywhere. Slow as a turtle.
Even go trains and buses are slow and take hours on each trip.
Car is best, but you gotta live close to work

It’s planned maintenance on a weekend. As an infrequent user I don’t blame you for not checking. However it is planned and occasionally lines do need to be down. Just sucks there is only one north south line.
Did I post something that interests you? Feel free to PM further questions.

You honestly thought after 1 year of not taking TTC you'd see drastic speed and efficiency, then fly down to CNE from Finch in 15min?
Remember to be an RFD-er and NOT a degenerate.

I just thought my negative memorises of TTC was maybe unwarranted. But no, they were and are valid.

Always think it’s weird how I never encountered scheduled maintenances when I lived in Vancouver, Sydney, Hong Kong and when I take GO trains. Oh yes, maintenances usually happen at night instead of the daytime for a normal, customer oriented public transportation service.

I can't remember the last time the Yonge line didn't have scheduled maintenance. The Yonge/Eg construction for LRT has been going on forever, down to single lanes in all directions. DVP repairs this weekend too.

Definitely frustrating to be a regular TTC user.

I just spent most of the night driving all over the city, coming back from the CNE, simply because the DVP northbound lanes were closed.
Roads were not a lot better. It's planned construction on the TTC, you can't blame them for that. It has to get done, it is what it is. Our system ain't new lol

Werd.


It’ll take at least two years.

Schedules are always off the mark, people are rude af, and now you have a very food chance of being assaulted on your way to work or home. What a lovely city and an equally lovely people mover.

Get a car, and don’t look back.
Even sitting in gridlock, it’s 100x better than the TTC!

Stop blaming unions. Inept politicians including the current premiere, who have made extremely poor transit decisions.

Theyre all overpaid, underworked blood sucking leeches that cant make it in the private sector.
