Toronto Transportation

If you're planning on moving to Toronto, finding affordable townhouses and wrangling a decent job from the job market are not your only concerns. You'll also have to think about your plans for getting around the city, as this will effect the neighborhoods you'll be looking into, the companies you'll be applying to work for, and your overall budget. Use this page to familiarize yourself with your transportation options.


If you're willing to put extra time into finding an apartment near your workplace (or a job near you apartment, depending on whether you've already signed a lease or not), you can manage quite well by walking everywhere. Toronto is such a dense city that you're quite likely to have everything you need (groceries, parks, entertainment, etc) within a 20 minute walk, unless you live in the suburbs. Most walkers use public transit for their larger trips.


This increasingly popular method of transportation is often used by fitness or green-minded people who don't have the time to walk everywhere. However the major drawback to cycling in the city is that there's a distinct lack of dedicated bicycle lanes and many vehicle drivers are in need of anger management counselling. Another popular two wheeled option is the scooter or Vespa, which you can drive on the road without getting trapped in traffic. What is a Vespa you ask?

Public Transit

Millions of people in big cities the world over, including Toronto, utilize public transit as their sole means of transportation. Between the buses, streetcars, and subways of the Toronto Transit Commission (which connect with the transit systems of the surrounding cities) and the GO Transit system that brings commuters in from outlying towns, you'll be able to get to your resume writing services job no matter where it is. A single adult fare is $3 and you can get a monthly pass for about $120.


A lot of people in Toronto still own cars because the city is not quite as narrow as European cities like London or Paris, and not quite as congested as New York or Los Angeles. If you're patient and you've taken a defensive driving course, Toronto should be manageable for you to drive in. However, be aware that it will take on average about an hour each way to commute and that parking (if you can find any) could amount to several hundred dollars per month.
