Friday morning traffic going eastbound across Toronto.
It's hard to believe people actually travel to and from the city with traffic like this. This picture is shot just before rush hour. It was 6:30am and we were on our way to some park just north of the Toronto Zoo. Total travel time from my bosses house to the park is about 45 minutes. Total travel time from my house to the bosses house is one hour via TTC (our transit system). Total time on set approx 13 hours. Total time getting back home is about a hour and a half.
Almost a quarter of the day is spent travelling. Gads! There are people I know that drive in from Barrie. How do these people do it? At least as a passenger I can sleep, read a book, do the cross words, eat a sandwich or something. It's nice living close to work. (not too close).
