getting around

In Toronto, Ontario, Canada; many people use the TTC, which stands for Toronto Transit Commision. It is a “quick and convenient way to get around the city.”
unforunately, it has its many downsides:
1. it is the least susidised government-run transit program in North America.
2. People aren’t competent enough to throw their anger at the politications and managers resposible (this guy) chair@ttc.ca
3. The subway planners don’t have much foresight, as they did not include a third rail that should and could (and would) be used if one of the other lines broke down. Also, its ridiculous that the lines are just that, lines. If one part of the line had a problem, that section before it would essentially be paralyazed. [the answer would be to build a third line]

but fortunately, there are solutions.
The best and most reliable solution is to bike around the city. Biking is the fastest mode of transportation because there are so many bike paths around the city.
If you don’t have a bike, or are in a super hurry, try finding a couple other people (group of 3 or 4) and hail a taxi. the cost won’t be as high as normal, but it is still really fast, or at least in comparision to other methods.
