Transit will be free for Pan Am Games ticket holders

Here's one more incentive to get yourself some of those unsold Pan Am Games tickets - transit will be free for ticket holders. The offer applies not only to the TTC but also GO trains and public transit systems in Peel, York, Oakville and other outlying areas where competitions will be held.

To take advantage of the free rides, ticket holders will simply need to show their tickets when they board a vehicle or access a subway, train or bus terminal. This good piece of news is undoubtedly meant to mitigate the rather aggravating inconvenience that there will be no parking at some of the major sporting facilities such as Exhibition Place.

In addition, Pan Am organizers recently announced that a dedicated HOV lane will be in effect on the QEW, Gardiner Expressway, Lake Shore Boulevard, DVP and Highways 401 and 427. A fine for driving in these lanes will cost $110 plus three demerit points.

What do you think about these transportation plans? Let us know in the comments.
