Transit Part 2
Yesterday I took the GO train into Toronto. And it went really well. Although I did take a lot of extra time to get acquainted with the system. In effect, the commute was a little over four hours. Quite a hit on time.
I recorded all of the time intervals and I estimate that I can bring that number down to about three hours and fifteen minutes. Give or take.
What I did notice was that I had a lot of energy when I got home last night. And, since I was running on a normal amount of sleep, I was not tired.
I’ll see how the rest of the week goes.
Presuming you took the subway from Union to your place of work, did you notice a difference in the clientele at all between the two systems?
I park at and take the subway in from the west end and there have been times I have had to switch cars….uuughhh!
Definite difference. The subway ride is only 8 minutes so I grin and bear it.
So, I have to ask – you still on the GO?
I had to switch subway cars this morning – the car I first entered at Islington was about 40 degrees! I hopped off and onto the next car at the very next station – it was about 20 degrees C.
On the way home the other day, a rather pungent, disheveled individual was begging for money. People were actually fanning their faces to rid themselves of the smell…
Yes. I have been staying on the GO. What a difference. I can catch up on reading and email. I arrive home quite relaxed.
The subway is certainly a different experience though. Today I was in a car with no lights and a man, apparently unfamiliar with personal hygiene, sat beside me.
The stench was so overpowering that I moved to the other end of the car.
At least he did not ask for money.
