Getting Around Toronto

Toronto is a very easy city to navigate. It is laid out in a north-south, east-west grid with Lake Ontario at the south. It is pedestrian friendly and offers buses, streetcars, subways and above-ground trains to move across the city.


The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is a system of subways, buses and streetcars. A single fare will take you on a one-way trip anywhere in the city. To transfer between different transport lines during your trip, ask for a “transfer” when you buy your ticket. When purchasing tickets on board buses and streetcars, exact change is required.

  • Single Ride:$3.25 Cdn
  • Day Pass:$12.00 Cdn
  • Weekly Pass:$42.25 Cdn

Taxis are easily hailed in the downtown area. Look out for the lit up sign on the roof of the car to determine which ones are available.

For street maps, look for an “infopillar” on the street with an “I” or 15-minute walking map and vicinity maps in the subway stations.
