How to escape from Chinatown to the Gardiner westbound?
posted by ricochet biscuit to Travel & Transportation around Toronto, ON (6 answers total)
I am in Toronto regularly for work and need advice on how best to get out of there. My years of living there were spent sans automobile, so I am an idiot when it come to looking for traffic patterns.
The usual departure time is 4:00 PM on weekdays, but it is occasionally later (5:00 PM or 7:00 PM), and the point of origin is the corner of College and Spadina. At 4:00 PM heading south on Spadina to Richmond, west on Richmond to Bathurst, south on Bathurst to Fort York Boulevard, following Fort York until it reaches the Lakeshore and then zooming west on the Lakeshore until it merges into the Gardiner near the Humber River works pretty well. At 5:00 and usually at 7:00 that is less than optimum -- it is frequently an hour or ninety minutes until I pass the Humber.
Anyone got any handy escape routes that they wish to share?
