A word from The Poet
Taking You Places
Jan 3, 2019
Leslieville is praised for its small-town vibe in the big city. When you’re here you say hi to your neighbours and become regulars at your favourite local haunts. What’s great about Leslieville is that you get to enjoy all these great small-town perks without sacrificing anything that Toronto has to offer. It’s all there just a quick transit ride away. Let’s see where some of the TTC’s lines can take you.
501 Streetcar: This streetcar can take you straight across Toronto. It starts at Neville Park in the east and can take you to Long Branch in the west. But it’s what’s in between that’s especially interesting. Looking to do some shopping at the world-famous Eaton Centre? You’ll be there in 20 minutes. Working at an office in the financial district? Don’t worry, you can make it to work in less than 30 minutes. This route also gets you close to Union Station and the network of GO trains and buses that use it as a hub. Not to mention all the amazing authentic Chinese food you can get in Chinatown near the Spadina stop on this route.
31 & 83 Bus Routes: When you want to jet up to Pape, Donlands, or Greenwood Station to get on Line 2 of the subway, these two routes will get you there in under 20 minutes. The 83 bus even has a stop right outside The Poet for your convenience! So, whether this is the starting point of your journey or exploring all the amazing destinations on Danforth Ave. is your end goal, you don’t need to worry about a long commute. The Poet is perfectly located to get you going north.
Relief Line: Still in the discussion phase at City Hall, it looks promising that this new subway line will begin construction in the coming years. The new line will make it even easier for residents of Leslieville to get to where they need to go quickly. Connecting Pape Station to Osgoode Station with stops at nearby intersections, the Relief Line would only help to make the amazing community in Leslieville more connected.
The best thing about all of these routes is that they make coming home to The Poet that much easier.
