I am going to be traveling to Toronto in September. My significant other and myself are planning to stay for three nights at the minimum. We really want to explore the city and visit every shopping district and cultural area possible. I was wondering if it was worth it to buy a weekly pass through TTC?
Oh well, story of my life. Didn't read the whole thing until after.
Definetly worth it if you are going to be doing alot of moving around during those 4 days. Cost is C$32.25 Adult and C$25.50 for Students. This means you need to use it 12 times to get the value. You should easily get on and off this many times if you really want to explore. Toronto is big.
I think it's definitely worth it - but know that you'll be paying the adult fare. You can use it to jump on streetcars, the subway and buses. In comparison 10 tokens/tickets are $21.50 or you can pay cash at $2.75 / ride.
I'm not sure it is worth it. If you like to walk, the weather in September is usually pretty good for it. You can do a lot of Toronto from the downtown area. Toronto is big, but I'm not positive that there's much to see in the outlying areas for a tourist.
If you are staying downtown (which I would highly recommend), you can do China town, Kensington market, the waterfront, the Annex, downtown financial core, Bloor street, Queen's Street, and cabbagetown all walking (though I would do it over two days). Places you would want to take the TTC to would be little India, Greektown, Little Italy and Yonge and Eglington (maybe).
If you are only there for 3 days, I wouldn't buy the pass, as I think you'll be able to fill your time without heading too far from the downtown core.
