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.

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.
If 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.
