There is little difference between train and metro, as most metro lines are connected to private railways and use the same trains. The Japan Railway (JR) is convenient to move fast around the main centers or to the suburbs. You can buy one ticket for the whole journey, although it simply additions the three companies' fares, without discount. Commuter tickets are useful if you often travel between two particular stations, for instance, between your home and your work or school. To buy one, you will have to find a station that has a commuter ticket office (usually big stations).
A brief update of an article first posted here in June: New subway maps dated September 2008 have just been spotted.
The TTC has just begun installing a new 2008 edition of its subway network maps in subway cars. The 2008 map updates are working their way through the system, though there has been very little change to station accessibility since the 2007 issue. Laurence at 299 bloor call control was the first blogger (as far as I know) to comment on these new maps, and his analysis is spot on. This new system is useless when looking for the closest station to an address on Bloor or Danforth. On another note, while taking pictures of the official subway strip maps, I noticed an older ad for St. Memorial uses a variation on the iconic subway network maps to make the point that you can access their service from anywhere. I thought the same about the addresses – what’s the point of knowing that Chester Station is on Chester Ave? I can see the need to provide the addresses of stations like Coxwell; I had trouble finding the station the first time I walked to it.
This redesign reaffirms my suspicion that the people hired by the TTC to make these kinds of decisions do not actually take public transit. I can’t think of any other transit system that even puts the station addresses on the in-car map. From what I recall they used to have the station names printed in the colour of the lines (e.g. Similar lack of attention to details story – A couple of weeks ago, Etobicoke homeowners got their new Garbage and Recycling Calendars in the mail with a big yellow sticker on the front saying our collection day was changing starting on July 1st and to see inside for further details. This morning (June 27th), a single sheet of paper that was the missing calendar page for July was hand delivered (it arrived much too early for it to have been delivered by Canada Post) to houses in the area.
You have to wonder how much extra money was wasted because the original calendars were not properly reviewed before they were sent out. I have not seen one in the flesh yet, but from the photos it looks like they have replaced Swis721 BT (the Helvetica clone) with Swis721 BlkCn BT. Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the TTC in a huge budget crisis not all that long ago?
This might not be a concern for a while, but has anyone thought about the TTC’s plans for expansion? My congratulations to the TTC on responding to this issue in an uncharacteristic way: effectively and (reasonably) quickly.


Mike: The new map (not the one posted in the image, the awful May 2008 version) goes back to the fonts and addresses used in the 2007 and earlier versions. To my knowledge, not a single qualified graphic designer, let alone a registered one (Ontario, uniquely, has a registry), works at the TTC. I haven’t actually tried it out, but something tells me the revised addresses on the map correspond to an address you could dump into a GPS unit or something like google map.
As for GPS based locations, the last time I looked most people don’t have a GPS device, especially in the subway. Expecting everyone to have technology to access a new system is kind of like assuming everyone is a motorist and carries a driver’s licence. In response to the availability of GPS service, a lot of the newer mobile phones come with this feature (presumably to provide directions), so having the station address may have some merit.
The TTC did finally go back to the drawing board by bringing back the late-2007 to mid-2008 style.
This section of Transit Toronto contains old maps, reports, news clippings and other archival material that have been scanned and added into the website.
Buses are slower and more expensive than trains, and taxis are very expensive (the minimum charge is generally 630 ¥).
The JR Yamanote line makes a circle passing through most of the main centers (Shinjuku, Shibuya, Shinagawa, Shimbashi, Tokyo, Kanda, Ikebukuro).
The kanji in their name indicate their location, as it is the case in other regions of Japan as well. Tickets can only be used for one company, although the Passnet (prepaid cards of 1000, 3000 or 5000 ¥ each) can be used on the Tokyo Metro, Toei and about all private lines.
For example, The Toei Asakusa line is connected to the Keisei line to Narita and Kekyu line to Yokohama, so that it is possible to go all the way from Narita to Yokohama without changing train. Its advantadge is that it does not need to be passed through the ticket gates, but just held above it, which makes it faster. Once you are there, you will have to fill an application with your name, age, address, telephone, and most importantly, the two stations between which you would like to commute and the length of validity of the ticket (usually one, three or six months). The latest version is a return to the previous design, with easier-to-read text, and the return of the old station address scheme, where addresses represent the nearest street address on Yonge, University, Bloor and Danforth.
While there has been no expansion of the actual subway since the Sheppard Line opened, the TTC usually updates its subway maps every year or two. In fact, apart from minor changes, the current map scheme, with white station names and circles has remained essentially the same since the opening of the Sheppard Subway in 2002. The relatively readable faux-Helvetica has been replaced with a less readable bold font that bleeds with the back-lit illumination.
The TTC did away with just displaying the approximate address numbers along Yonge, Bloor, Danforth and Sheppard (only printing the street name where the subway deviated form one of those four streets), and now has the precise municipal address for each station. On Yonge, this is especially redundant, as not only are the stations already named for the cross streets, Yonge is also the origin point for addresses east and west of that street.
But intentionally or unintentionally, the map is a poor copy, including a strange jog to the south on the east end of the Bloor-Danforth Line and Downsview appearing to be farther north than Finch Station. The Strathmore address is useles, however, on a map you can only see if you’re already ON THE SUBWAY. I always tolerated the small address numbers, as they related to the main street that the line paralleled; this business is utterly useless.
But inside the calendar there was no further details because the month of July was missing – the calendar started at August. Hiring graphic designers and printing enough maps for the subway fleet and the rooms of first years at Trinity College, must be fairly expensive.
The map re-make was truly awful, but I am genuinely surprised and impressed that a relatively mundane issue like that caught the attention of the TTC well enough that they did something about it.


I agree, the super-short and long rectangle doesn’t seem like it will survive forever. Why doesn’t the TTC hire some decent graphic designers instead of having engineers design graphics?!
The new, new map is a lot easier to read than the short-lived May version, which will likely be with us for a while still. Given that most of the Bloor-Danforth stations are actually a half-block north of said streets it looks like this might be the case. This section also includes articles and other items which don't fit comfortably into the other divisions on the website.
You may link to any page on this website, and you may quote text from this web site (citing sources), but before using any material found on this site beyond fair use, you must first obtain permission from the copyright holder. Each train company has different tickets, however there should be a possibility to combine commuter tickets.
Your ticket will enable you to use any station on the same line between the two stations selected, but no other. The last version, with the sometimes useless (and in at two stations – Castle Frank and St.
Map updates include information on station accessibility, whether paper transfers are required on connecting routes, and the locations of parking and washrooms.
Coxwell Station now has a Strathmore Boulevard address, instead of 1568 Danforth Avenue, and Rosedale is now at 7 Crescent Road instead of 1009 Yonge.
Perhaps the irregularities are to help distinguish itself from the official map, but to the trained eye, look sloppy. YUS is already shrunk on the map compared to B-D, and they couldn’t possibly shrink it down any more.
Would it not perhaps be a bit more prudent to curtail the redesigning of a map that, hasn’t exactly changed at ALL, in favour of buying gas for their buses? If your journey involves several changes, you might be able to use different lines to reach your destination. Andrew, incorrect) station addresses, may eventually become an amusing collector’s item.
My favourite was the recent maps in the Montreal Metro for a brand of gum promising extensions to Halifax, Toronto, New York and Miami.
Another huge annoyance about the current (2007) maps is the fact that Kennedy station is shown to be about as far south as St Clair, and the RT line shows a huge distance between Kennedy and Lawrence E, and then half that distance between Lawrence E and Ellesmere (even though both are equal distances apart). Plus, the whole Transity City plan with light rail, which *should* be done by 2020, will also five the map designers something to grapple with.
For example, an Eidan Chikatetsu commuter ticket from Nihombashi to Shibuya should be valid in all Eidan lines and stations between these two (i.e.
I know the map is not to scale, but at least make an effort for stations to line up on appropriate cross streets!
PS – anyone else remember the stickers they used to use after the Downsview extension was finished? Ginza-line, Tozai-line till Kudanshita, Hanzomon-line from Kudanshita, Marunouchi-line between Otemachi and Akasaka-Mitsuke).
