Got the Gardiner Blues? Unfold a solution!
Posted on 16 June 2014
With the enormous construction projects, or lack thereof, on our roadways, we have come to require more civilized modes of transport. Never mind the decrease of four lanes to two on the Gardiner Expressway or the 401 being bungled up due to overflow from said construction, the modes of commuting into town are certainly limited, with one exception: The GO Train. It has been a formidable way for the fine folks living outside the city core to come into the city for work.
"Oh, but the GO Transit station is too far from my house to walk and my office is too far as well", you may challenge. And yes, we admit, trains can't get you door to door. This is what Transportation experts call the problem of the Last Mile. Owning a car to drive to the GO Station and taking a Taxi from the Station to work ends up being just as expensive and time consuming as driving. There is a solution, and it's fun.
