If you're living in the GTA and can't afford to move out, you really don't have a choice and it sucks. Commuting is also crazy expensive which doesn't make it any easier for us students. And let's be honest, the student discounts don't really do much. Here are thoughts all us students have when commuting to school in downtown Toronto.
