The Ryerson Campus is very accessible by public transportation. There are many different modes of transportation that you can use/take. The further you get from the heart of the city the harder it may be. For instance, to get to my current co-op location (Emery Village — business improvement area in North York) from my apartment (in downtown ) I have to first take a subway then a bus.
You can use the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) which offers 3 modes: bus, subway, and streetcars. For the subway there are two main lines: line 1 (yellow one) and line 2 (green line). Line 1 (Yonge-University Line) runs north to south and passes through Union Station. Line 2 (Bloor-Danforth) runs east to west between Etobicoke and Scarborough. There are also 2 smaller lines: 3 and 4. Line 3 is the blue one (Scarborough Line). It has 6 stations only. Line 4 is the purple one (Sheppard Line). It has 5 stations. More information about the lines can be found here: https://ttc.ca/Subway/index.jsp
Where the subway doesn’t go, buses and streetcars do. There are many busses and streetcars. There probably would be more than one option to get you to your destination. More information can be found here: http://www.ttc.ca/Routes/Buses.jsp and here: http://www.ttc.ca/Routes/Streetcars.jsp
Go trains and busses could be another option. The closest station to campus is Union. From there you can either walk (through the PATH is an option!) or take the TTC to get to campus. More information about GO can be found here: https://www.gotransit.com/en/stations-stops-parking
In part 2 of this blog I will be writing about the prices of each mode so stay tuned!
