Starting today getting around the GTA is going to go from hard to near impossible. The new temporary HOV lanes are now in effect and are going to do nothing more than cause more delays. The lanes designed to ease traffic flow for the upcoming Pan Am Games are most likely going to do the opposite. The lanes require a minimum of three people in the vehicle to use them which makes sense because people always commute in groups to work. If that doesn’t work then just hop on the public transit system and ol’ reliable will get you to your destination on time or within a two-hour window! That’s only if you’re lucky enough to be on one of the select few train lines that run into the city, if not there are numerous overcrowded buses to help make your morning commute an enjoyable one.
