Some quick insight:

What's the average travel time from 401/404 to DVP/Bloor on a weekday morning?

Let's say I need to be at Bloor for 8:30am...

Thanks!

I come from brampton to yonge and bloor everyday. when I'm lazy to get up to take the go train I park at yorkdale. $5.00 parking plus 2.60 TTC. If your coming from Markham there are a few options for TTC on the bloor line i believe. It's honestly a lot faster and easier on you. save's gas too.

biggest + no ridiculous parking cost downtown.
