the underground network in Toronto called .

.

.

PATH its is an underground walkway system spread over almost 30 km this was built to manage the crowd like many other metros of the world Toronto Downtown also used to be very crowded then they made huge underground tunnels today this is a huge network of shops, restaurants and cafes and many more things many commercial establishments are directly connected with PATH Many subway stations, malls, metro, parking are also connected internally You can reach these buildings by just walking underground Daily commuters leave their train, enter the PATH and reach directly to their workplace using PATH Daily thousands of people use this For example This is similar to Delhi's Palika bazar but much-much bigger than that There are 1200 shops which generate employment for almost 5000 people but for me, PATH came as a rescue from the chilling winds You can also explore the PATH if the weather is not in your favour its 12 pm after almost 2 hours the trip is going to finish he is asking everyone for good ratings Trip was ok Though my previous walking tours were better than this The best walking tour was Harvard University's in Boston, USA Most of the walking tours are tip-based Yes I am from India Are you also from Canada? Oh! you are also a tourist! Even I am a tourist Are you liking it? “Its good” “Its very cold here” yes, it is What is your name? “Shamsher Dahiya, from Gurgaon” I am from Delhi Good to meet a Haryanavi.

Mr Dahiya I have seen such walking tours in many cities Such free tours are actually Tip based Tip them if you like the tour After this trip ended The guide came to us and asked for 10 CAD each This was odd almost insisting everyone Usually, it depends on you but again.

take Line-1 Google Maps helps to find Public Transport all over the world especially in Europe and American countries You can trust Google maps for Public Transport it also shows you app based cabs with their fares This is a day pass it costs 12.

5 CAD it offers Unlimited Rides in street cars, subways buses, this is valid for 1 day till 5 am of the next day After purchasing, you have to scratch it to validate So I scratched November and today's date You have to show this card to the station officials They will allow you to enter the station This is valid for 1 adult but if you are travelling on weekends then this is valid for 6 people 2 adult and 4 children you can travel anywhere in Toronto You can catch a TTC bus from the airport from airport to Kipling and take a subway from kipling announcements are clear as this is close to Royal Ontario museum This station is also designed like museum Now I have to rush to visit the museum its warm inside it was so cold outside Stand on the right side of the escalators leave the left side for others exit doors always check before you exit the station i exited from the wrong side the museum is on the other side I should have used that gate Jaywalking is not allowed means – don't cross the road from anywhere you like use zebra crossings or use these stairs 'Museum' is the nearest subway station for Royal Ontario Museum I wish I also had such buses during my school years open from 10 am to 5 pm check their website for more information its so warm inside all the buildings after visiting the museum.
