Expect Toronto ferries to be more crowded this summer

Like Derek Shepherd (may he rest in peace), Toronto has a thing for ferry boats - mainly because they transport us from the mainland to the beautiful Toronto Islands.

But your journey from the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal might seem a little squishier this summer because the city's upping the capacity on these lake-faring vessels, reports the Toronto Star today.

Instead of carrying 750 passengers, the ferries will now take 950 people to and fro. This will hopefully cut down on wait times and lineups, which are known to be quite long during peak summer months.
