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.

DIY TTC Surface Route Timetable

On 25, Jan 2008 | No Comments | In TTC, User Experience | By Ryan Feeley

pdf.pngIf you’d like to make a Cologne-style TTC surface route timetable for the stops you care about and happen to be an iWork-owning Mac user, I have attached a template created in Pages.app:

How did I get the data? On my Mac, I copied the text from their web schedule, and then used a text editor to process the text into rows. The rest was done with a whole lot of copying and pasting.

TIP: You can select columns of text in TextEdit by holding down the option key. It will bring up a crosshair and allow you to select squares of text. This technique was applied liberally during the creation of the timetable.

This iPod-friendly version of the original TTC Subway Rider Efficiency Guide indicates where the escalators are located for a faster exit. Instead of printing the guide and carrying it around, you can use your photo-capable iPod, or other device, to save vast seconds of your life.

Simply unzip, mount your iPod, and copy the guide into the Photos folder of your photo view iPod.

Thanks to gang at ttcrider for making these maps to begin with! Feel free to check out my other iPod guides.
