I had prebooked the airport express bus, so upon arrival in Toronto, I had a pleasant and reasonably fast ride directly to my hotel—the Fairmont Royal York. The best part was the price—under $16 compared to the taxi price of about $40 (C). I’ve also tried the Toronto subway system (just $2.50 C) and managed to get to my destination quite successfully. The trains run frequently and seem to be popular with the locals.
But, what’s with the stairs everywhere? I’ve been surprised at how scarce ramps, escalators, and elevators seem to be. I’m certainly getting my exercise. For those looking for a good walk, I saw great looking trails and park areas along the lake on my ride into town. I’m hoping for some no conflict time to do a little exploring.
