They are very lenient and accept many of your excuses and just let you go...

Where's the Centennial res? is it right beside the school? If so, take viva purple somehow and it'll take you all through highway 7 and you could see enough stuff around Markham/Richmond Hill...

For both ways? Not bad at all. It's 4 dollars here for both ways. no homo

2.75 for a bus ride is expensive?

If you are ever out walking and get too cold you cant make it home, find a huge pile of snow and bury yourself in there. Once in, take your clothes off and let the snow insulate you against the cold. No homo.

Toronto is well known for its freak random snow/ice storms and you can easily end up alone and freezing on the street. The "snow womb" is a pretty popular technique for survival.

You can also buy 10-ride tickets or monthly pass at big stations (Finch, Richmond Hill Centre, etc.) or some stores. There is a Daisy Mart located across Markville Mall that sell those kind of tickets.
well, today i bought some tickets 7.50 for 5 student tickets to go on bus, now that is a better deal.lol
