If you’re like me, you use your bike as your primary mode of transportation around Toronto, but also use the TTC to get around if it’s pouring rain (and you don’t feel like getting as wet) or it’s one of those bitterly cold winter days (some of you younger readers may not remember these… why, back in MY day… we had snow in Toronto! Real Live Snow!), orif you have to get out to some no-man’s suburbia land in outer Scarborough or something.
Or maybe your bike has a flat tire and you’re too lazy/busy to fix it (which is my situation right now).
Anyhow, my point is that when you live in Toronto and life a car-free (or car-light) life, the TTC comes in handy.
One of many criticisms of the TTC has been the design of TTC.ca. While it was pretty state-of-the-art in 1996 or so, when it looked pretty much like it does now (although less cluttered), the last 11 years have not been kind to it. The website is pretty ugly, clunky, hard-to-use and not user-friendly.
You can see a few of my ideas here.
