Yeah, thought it was free to all other parks before you edited original post, and saw costs on the link for other locations

You still need to use transit to get to the pickup location, and the fare doesn't depend on the distance. Also the fare doesn't matter for people with a pass.

Have you ever done the trip yourself using public transit?... it takes forever to get therepny128 wrote: ↑ You still need to use transit to get to the pickup location, and the fare doesn't depend on the distance. Also the fare doesn't matter for people with a pass.
According to trip planner it's not much slower:
As an advantage, you are not limited to the fixed pickup locations and times. Also the 3hr window is pretty tight. Additionally I don't think you are allowed to bring bikes on a school bus.

First, let's do an attitude adjustment here, I was just saying that it takes a very long time to get to the zoo by public transit... I've done it several times and the big issue is the continuous stops throughout the trip, you don't need to answer in that tone.

How long was it in your experience?
This schedule is copied directly from their website:
It takes them about an hour, same as TTC. My guess would be that the problem is getting outside of downtown using surface route, especially given the constant road closures. Subway bypasses that issue altogether.Morning Visit

If I remember it correctly, it took me almost 1.5 hrs to get to the zoo via TTC... but it could probably take a bus about 1 hr if it doesn't make a lot of stops, and there's no major traffic jams
Oh, I get it... they don't go non-stop from Yonge & Bloor, but they make a stop at the Bessarion subway station... that is why it's taking them all that time to arrive to the park
