Toronto has a predominantly north-south, east-west street grid interrupted in different areas by ravines and river valleys. With this grid structure and access to a modern transit system residents and visitors alike can easily travel throughout the city. An express rail service links Toronto’s Lester B. Pearson International Airport with the downtown core and a commuter rail system connects communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area with the downtown core. Bike share facilities and regular ferry service provides easy access to the Toronto Islands and other park facilities in the city. Guided sightseeing tours are available within the city and a variety of day tours to the world famous Niagara Falls and other sights are also available.
Get around downtown quickly by Street Car Service
Within the downtown core Toronto’s Street Car service provides an easy way to move about. The street car routes run east-west with a lesser number of north south routes. The main east-west routes in the down town core are Queen’s Quay, King St., Queen St., Dundas St. and Carlton St. The main downtown north-south routes are Roncesvalles Ave., Bathurst St., Spadina Ave. and Broadview Ave. All of the east-west routes have transfer stops for the Subway Line 1 and all the north-south routes have transfer stops for the Subway Line 2. Streetcar service payment is by Presto cards which are available at all TTC subway station self serve fare machines or at Customers Service outlets
Go beyond downtown with Subway Service
The Toronto Subway service comprises four interconnected lines. Line 1 is a U-shaped North-South line running along Yonge Street from Finch Avenue in the North to Union Station and then North along University and Northwest to York University and the Vaughn Metropolitan Centre. Line 2 runs east-west along Bloor Street in mid town. Line 3 runs east from Yonge Street along Sheppard Ave. Line 4 is a LRT extension from the east end of line 2 to the Scarborough Town centre. As with street cr service the Presto card is used for payment.

The GO Transit service comprises six rail lines including Lakeshore East and West, Milton, Georgetown, Barrie, Richmond Hill, and Stouffville.
