Airport travel to Holiday Inn Express

by statsllc

I would like to know the best route in taking the bus/train from the airport to the Holiday Inn Express on 111 Lombard Street.

Re: Airport travel to Holiday Inn Express

by oldguy472003

The train does not go to Pearson airport. There is a airport hotel shuttle that will cost about half the price of a cab but if there are two or more traveling together the cab becomes the better option.

Alternatively the Toronto transit system runs a express bus service between the airport and the Kipling subway station on the Bloor/Danforth line You would take the subway from Kipling station to Bloor/Yonge and change to the Yonge/Universty/Spadina train southbound to Queen Street station. Walk four blocks east on Queen Street, Two Blocks South on Church streetTurn left on Lombard and walk East about a half block to Number 111.
The map on the ttc website is for route 192 Airport Rocket.
If you click around on the page where the map is located you will find links to the map of the subway system, it is very easy to use however this will be a slower option than a cab or the shuttle

Visit the market downtown near...

by pgoudr

Visit the market downtown near union station....The waterfront area shops are great and you can take the ferry to center island for a picnic or bike ride........ Fondest memory is hustle and bustle of a great city that is both old and new to all visitors........Like an old friend.

Dominated by St. James Cathedral, ST. JAMES PARK is bordered by King Street to the south, Adelaide Street to the north, Jarvis Street to the east and Church Street to the west. It was a green oasis in a jungle of tall buildings. We went right through it several times on our way to the King Edward to meet up with Berni and Carl. The Park had a lovely Victorian Garden, with a small fountain in the middle and a lovely gazebo.

Communication in Chinatown

by OlenaKyiv

If you are in Chinatown, you would better speak Chinese. All signs are on Chinese, I assume. Many people don’t speak English. We went in one of the banks to exchange money and found ourselves among Asian people, old and young. They talked very fast on their native language and looked at us, at the beginning, with some suspicion (we were the only ones who looked Slavic and who even didn’t speak English between each other). Soon they realized we are not any threat to them (I am joking) and didn’t pay attention to us. Then we realized we have some question to ask, I don’t remember what exactly. We tried to ask people in line and received only glances of misunderstanding. That moment I really wanted to speak Chinese. Luckily, bank employee spoke English.

Toronto Slang

by jon_and_may

The following are some slang you may encounter while in Toronto (and in Ontario in general).

"Loonie" - Our $1 coin. It has a loon on one side.

"Toonie" - Our $2 coin. Like two loonies.

"T.O." - Pronounced "Tee-Oh". Stands for "Toronto, Ontario", or "TOronto". It's the subject of many debates. :)

"The Rocket" - Endearing slang for the Toronto Transit Commision (TTC). "Ride the Rocket" generally means to take the TTC.

That's all I can think of at the moment. There are probably more, but hard to think of if you're a local. :)
