Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but here goes.
I'm sick of the greyhound service from here to Toronto. The buses are clearly past their time. I come from a 3rd world country, where buses are already equipped with nearly fully reclinable seats, television, personal adjustable air vents, power sockets, and in some cases free wi-fi. Now I know I'm talking semantics because clearly here in Canada more people own cars etc. But I'm just trying to illustrate how pathetic the service here is (not to mention you travel for nickels and dimes over there).
It's a long 12-14 hour ride, where I'm limited to doing one of two things: Reading, or sleeping. My laptop only lasts about an hour. Sleeping is impossible most of the time, and I get caught up in my reading in no more than maybe an hour or so. Complete waste of a day in an uncomfortable bus.
I already know of Porter. I've taken it back during christmas, but it's not really something I can afford all year long.
Apart from the obvious (hitching a ride with someone). Is there a 3rd alternative to get to Toronto?
