Toronto Transportation – Toronto Public Transportation 

You can explore the sprawling city on excellent and modern public transit system, comprising of subways, streetcars and buses. In fact, Toronto has third largest public transport system in North America, managed by Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).

It's safe, sound and simple way to get around the city. And most of the routes have very regular service and some of downtown routes are operated round the clock. However, during rush hour, traffic jamming is very common and causes delay. Unfortunately, it is not new for big cities.

Fares and Tickets

For a one-way trip of any length, you have to pay a single fare (cash or ticket). If your trip involves connecting routes, you can freely transfer between subway, bus and streetcar to get to your destination.

You may need paper transfer if you are paying cash or using a single-ride ticket. The paper transfer allows you to board more than one kind of transport without paying again. Note that if you are using a day pass or weekly pass, you do not need to show paper transfer.

You can request for the transfer after paying your fare on a bus or streetcar. And in subway stations you can get one from the automated transfer machine just inside the entrance after you pay your fare.
