Hey, this post is simply to try to organize a larger group of cosplayers to ride te go train to the convention if they need it, together in a group.

Me, myself, am coming from hamilton. if anyone else here is coming from hamilton (ontario obviously) then maybe we could meet up at the go station on john and hunter st at the same time (maybe 11am?) and ride the bus together as a cosplay group to the convention. It takes the stares away from one single person in a costume, and its a lot more fun riding a long boring go bus trip with fun people who share the same interests!
Anyone else coming from hamilton (or leaving from hamilton go station)?

Everyone else can post if they're coming from a specific popular area and see how many groups we can get riding the go bus/train together! The convention doesnt start till 4, most are there by 2, but maybe those really early can hang out for photos or breakfast!

Anyways, it may even be like a contest, who can get the largest group to ride the bus all at once! so have fun with this, and i'll see you all at the convention.

Hmm.. TribalButterfly.. a bit off topic there...

Anyways, Tamahome, I'm sure there are many taking go transit. I know a lot of people will be taking the lakeshore east line as quite a few live out that way. And also the Sauga lines, quite a few out there too!! Oh!! You should also expand the thread to cover TTC as well, I remember past threads about meet ups for transportation at places such as Finch Station etc.

Good luck finding people to go with!! AHa.. it is much nicer to travel in groups!!

lol

i'm taking the go train on friday from the georgetown line i believe...

there's a GROUP day pass for the GO and if you get enough people, you should do it ^_^ Check the website http://gotransit.com for prices for your area and what not.

similarly...on Saturday and Sunday people can buy the group day pass for the TTC!! It's $8 bucks and applicable for two adults (19 and older) and 4 children (younger than 19). I've used it with Squall18 with us as adults and friends who were 18 as children lol

Michelle, you should probably add what DAY. :thumbsup:
Also if you post your departure time, and the schedual for every stop, and decide to sit on one car, say the top level of the Handicap car, people could join you along the way at thier closest station.

(I say the Handicap car because the "first" car depends on what station you are in but the Handicap car is always the one with the ramp :) )

Ah. Well for me personally, I'm departing from Hamilton Go station on john st. and Hunter st in downtown hamilton on the Friday, and am hoping to catch the 10:40, 11:00, or 11:30 toronto express bus from there. the busses run every half hour after that, so they're on the 00:00 and the 00:30.

i'm planning on going then, so if anyone wants to join me on the go bus, feel free to message me and we can plan this to make the journey more fun.
^^
