1. Starts with "T."
2. A Favorite
3.  Tall

For the letter of the week for this round I am going to go with all things TTC, Toronto Transit Corporation.

Starts with "T"

It appears we don't have a station starting with T! But we can use Toronto Transit.

These pictures are in our shuttle bus lounge in our building.

The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is a public transport agency that operates bus, subway, streetcar, and paratransit services in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the oldest and largest of the urban transit service providers in the Greater Toronto Area, with numerous connections to systems serving its surrounding municipalities.


Established as the Toronto Transportation Commission in 1921, the TTC owns and operates four rapid transit lines with 75 stations, over 149 bus routes, and 11 streetcar lines. In the 4th quarter of 2012, the average daily ridership was 2.76 million passengers: 1,425,300 by bus, 271,100 by streetcar, 46,400 by intermediate rail, and 1,011,700 by subway. The TTC also operates door-to-door paratransit service for the elderly and disabled, known as Wheel-Trans.


The TTC is the most heavily used urban mass transit system in all of Canada, and the third largest in North America, after the New York City Transit Authority and Mexico City Metro.


Speaking of the New York Transit system, I was tricked one day while walking along Wellington St. between King and Front. We do not have any subway stations along there!

If you zoom on the ad on the railing it says "Park Slope Credit Union". Park Slope is in Brooklyn.


As someone who is only 5" everyone is taller than me!


  1. I imagine the NYC signs were in place for a film shoot.

  2. My favorite is that old trolley. Under the hood might be the electric motor but I suspect there is also and auxiliary gasoline engine. Your tall garden ornament is something!!! The "sculptor" needed ladders? He probably made it laying down. I came off the "Reflection sign in but I have missed it here?"

  3. The old trolley is so cool. Love it. I also like that last shot with you next to the tall statue! Those are some long legs for sure. Happy weekend to you!

  4. ...I love the two vintage streetcars. Looks like they need a bike rack. Jackie, you like a bit short in that picture. Enjoy your trip.

  5. Love the old trolley! We have the Seashore Trolley Museum located very close to us, it's a really cool place to visit! It's in Kennebunkport, Maine you can check it out here That's an awesome picture of you, Jackie! Have a nice Thanksgiving!
