Our AutoShare Year – 2008

On 15, Jan 2009 | 3 Comments | In Toronto | By Ryan Feeley

AutoShare LogoAs posted in 2006 but not 2007, I’ve created a spreadsheet detailing our AutoShare expenses for the past year. For those of you unfamiliar with AutoShare, they provide excellent cars for hourly usage in locations across Toronto. Ideal for trips in and out of the city that require less than a day; after that point a traditional rental usually offers better value.

My wife and I are on their basic $10/month plan and over the course of the year incurred $25.25 of “Idiot Fees” (last minute cancellations, extensions by phone, etc.). We are very happy with the service and whole-heartedly recommend it. If only the nearby Beer Store would cooperate and provide AutoShare a spot, it would save us a 1km walk to the closest car!

A nice bonus was a $25 referral fee in August! Those are very welcome, so keep us in mind if you sign up!

Eastbound Subway

On 24, Jun 2008 | 9 Comments | In TTC | By Ryan Feeley

A frontrow seat on an eastbound TTC subway ride from the Bathurst to Greenwood.

One frame every two seconds, handheld and all super-8y. I must get one of those plunger-style tripods because stuck to the door window and covered in black is probably a better way to capture the dark tunnel.

Queen East Commute – South Facing

On 24, Jun 2008 | 3 Comments | In TTC | By Ryan Feeley

Another westbound ride from the east side: before Jones to Sherbourne on Toronto’s famous 501 Queen car. This time south-facing and without interruption.

Feel free to embed and distribute on your blog just like the other one. If you’re curious as to how it was made, I used the movie timelapse mode of my Canon Powershot SD850 IS.

Queen East Commute

On 18, Jun 2008 | One Comment | In TTC | By Ryan Feeley

A westbound ride from the east side: Jones to Sherbourne on Toronto’s famous 501 Queen car.

One frame per second with a bit missing from the middle when I readjusted the camera. Check the last few frames for the guy near Sherbourne spotting the camera and then ducking.
