Schooling Your Kids On The TTC

TTC Streetcar

Seriously, taking the Sheppard 85 bus in Scarborough wearing my kodiaks and listening to my walkman, I never thought I’d one day be writing a story about ‘the better way’… especially on Weekendtrips. My friends and I used to joke about TTC’s actual definition being ‘Take The Car’ (instead of ‘Toronto Transit Commission’) but I now realize that TTC could easily stand for ‘Take The Children.’

Our transit system is the ultimate in keeping kids busy with fun things to see and do in T.O. You can take the family up the Yonge line and stop in Dundas Square to check out all of the billboards and local talent, jump out in Yorkville to climb the rock in the park and grab a coffee and take some time at Yonge & Eglinton to watch a flick and peruse Indigo to find a great read. It might sound crazy, but public transit is definitely the way to go, especially if you’re looking to keep your kids busy and off the internet.

An unlimited one day TTC family pass is just $10.75.

Use the TTC Trip Planner to plan your Toronto trip! Unfortunately the TTC Tours are no longer happening, but they do run the City of Toronto’s annual Doors Open Weekend every spring. Watch for it!

  • My mother never used to let me on the TTC because of the marijuana smoke but things have changed and it is really the way to go in the 21st century especially with all of the concerns about the climate change i know that i want a future for my children lol!
