How should I get around Toronto??

Jump to last reply

I will be going to Toronto for a conference May 13-16 and have everything planned except my daily travel. I need to figure out how I am going to travel between the airport and hotel, as well as my daily travel.

The conference is at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

I am staying at the Days Inn Toronto Downtown (Carlton Street).

My basic needs are getting from the airport to the hotel Sunday morning, getting to and from the convention hall each day, and getting back to the airport.

Should I rent a car? Should I just use a taxi? Public transportation?

In considering the driving, traffic is always a consideration. I grew up driving around Boston and have driven through other cities, too. Most recently, I was able to drive in New York, Nashville, Philadelphia, Charleston, and various spots in Ireland without much trouble. So, unless Toronto is much worse than those other spots, I would not let the city driving be a driving factor in rejecting the car option.

Getting the most value for my money, in terms of using time efficiently and not spending a fortune, would be my main priority.

Thank you, in advance, for your advice. Even if you can not recommend one for sure, any help pointing out the benefits and drawbacks of each option is appreciated.
