Default TTC

Why is it so terrible? What's the underlying issue? I mean ignoring their horrendous "efficiency", why are their drivers such assholes? They get paid pretty Damn well for what they do so why are they so pissed off/sadistic all the time? Is it a management issue? Other "world class" transit operators aren't like this. Discuss.

OK first off, how do you know this to be true?

In my experience with TTC staff and drivers, they have been for the most part pretty nice. There was a time i was experimenting with a new bus route and i would ask various bus drivers about the options, and each time they were helpful and polite. Pzabby i think it's just the luck of the draw man. In pretty much every job and position, some people are going to be assholes while others will be friendly. One thing i can tell you is that i've seen bus drivers and street car drivers get maltreated by the passengers on more than one occasion so i can see how some become jaded.

Now since we're talking about TTC, i'll just say contrary to your earlier statement, the TTC as a system IS NOT world class. For a huge city such as ours the transit system is second or third rate. So many improvements need to take place that probably never will. Too much money i guess. Public transit is one of the worst things about Toronto.

My doctor's friend was brought over from Russia to help deal with the transit issue in the city (they have crazy good transit out there).

Apparently one of the large unknown issues is car dealerships/auto companies in Toronto. Toronto has one of the highest per capita car dealers in the world* and they put a ton of money into making sure the TTC remains in political gridlock.

meh, everyone thinks that whatever experience they have is unique. If our TTC drivers well all good samaritan, the damn things would take 4 hours to get across their routs waiting for every dolt not at the stop in time.

who said anything like that? It just pisses me off is all, toronto is already so smog ridden, a terrible transit system with terrible employees definitely doesn't help the case.

actually most of the people who take the ttc do indeed, hate it. There are wierdos like you who don't but the normal human being, is pissed at transit service in toronto, ala the thousands upon thousands of articles, comments by people, etc. you're fucking filth you know that? wasn't gonna say anything but since you took a shot at me, some of your posts are fucking outrageous.

dude taking transit sucks. Unfortunately the worst part of the TTC is the infrastructure not the workers. YOu have dummies in politics pushing street cars when they are the most useless forms of transit on the free world instead of building Subways which basically move people faster and more efficiently. Yes Subways are expensive but they are the greatest investment ont he planet. I say these politicians should man up and actually invest wisely in this city. For example wouldn't it make perfect sense to connect downsview station and the scarbourough side of the bloor line together? but of course it would but you have dummies wanting to throw up street cars everywhere.

We will have more of this idiocity when an idiot like Adam Vaughn becomes the cities mayor.

So for now T.ake T.he C.ar

Anyone has to be better than the complete dolt we have now. On a side note why do all Toronto mayors turn out to be absolute losers?

I have a strong feeling that Vaughn will make Ford and Miller look like angels. This city went to the shitter ever since they became a mega city. It was better when Scarb. North York and Etobicoke were their own city and downtown was the Economoic Toilet the province had to worry about

I had my first car at 18. I'll never forget my 1987 New Yorker with bench seating. Most comfortable car on the planet but God what a POS.
