logoIndian Grove Flats are located in the
neighbourhood of High Park. They are on
a very safe, green, and quiet street, one block
(4 minutes' walk) from Keele Subway Station,
and walking distance to every amenity.

The University of Toronto is 8 subway stops away (see below). An Express Bus to York University leaves from Keele Station (scroll down), and a direct GO train to the downtown financial district is a 10-minute walk away (scroll down).

Indian Grove is 8 subway stops from the University of Toronto (located at St. George station.) Each stop takes a little over a minute, making the journey to the University of Toronto 10-12 minutes long. Of course, during rush hour it might take a little longer, as does everything in the city. However, the journey will never be boring -- your co-denizens on the subway represent an amazing mix of cultures, ages, fashion styles, personalities and professions that, for the most part, get along quite well and happily call Toronto home.

If you are going to York University, you can catch a convenient Express bus directly from Keele subway station. The 41E Keele Express (click for schedule) operates on weekdays and though we confess that it is not quite as "express" as its name suggests -- the bus being as vulnerable to traffic jams as other vehicles on the road -- it is still your most efficient option for getting to York, with an average time of 45-55 minutes.

The house is also located a few blocks (about 10 minutes' walk) from a GO Station. GO is the regional train system linking Toronto with its suburbs and commuter cities. Trains from the Bloor GO station (map) run directly to the downtown financial district at Union station in 13-17 minutes (schedule), making it a much faster -- and less crowded -- option than the subway, but also a more expensive one: click here for fare information.

If you need to travel elsewhere in Toronto, the TTC website (where "TTC" stands for Toronto Transit Commission) has a wealth of information on subway routes, bus schedules, and fares.

For cyclists, cycling to the University of Toronto takes 30-40 minutes depending on speed; cycling to the financial district at Bay & King is a further 10 minutes.

There are two car rental agencies a few blocks away, as well as severalcar sharing spots from Autoshare and Zipcar within close walking distance.

logoNight travel: The subway in Toronto operates until about 2am. After 2am, Bloor St. is served by a Night Bus which runs every 15 minutes. The night bus stops at the intersection of Keele & Bloor. However, for women travellers you need only advise the driver where you wish to get off and the bus will stop at Indian Grove. Most other major streets - including Yonge, College, Bathurst, and Queen - also have night buses or streetcars that operate continuously all night.

 

The flats are a stone's throw away from Toronto's largest park, High Park, as well as the smaller Lithuania Park, grocery stores, greengrocers, liquor stores, bakeries, restaurants, pharmacies, banks, and a post office. The flat is nestled between charming Bloor West Village (the "village in the city"), trendy Roncesvalles, and the artsy Junction.
