    I’m interested in coming but I’m downtown Niagara Falls Ontario and don’t drive, is there anyone I can come up with if I chip in some gas money? Do you know what buses I should take from Union Station?

    Gibson House Museum is close to the North York Centre subway station on the Yonge subway – Line 1.
    Watch the news for a possible Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) strike that could disrupt transit service starting early Friday June 7th.

    If coming from union station you’ll want to take the Yonge Line subway to North York Centre station I’ll cost you $3.30 (buy a Presto card at union station). The Gibson House is a 1-2 minute walk from the subway station. The area is actually great for a day trip with many amazing (and affordable) restaurants, a concert hall, and a main branch library right in walking distance.

    If there’s a strike you can take a GO Bus to Finch Terminal and walk 15 minutes south along Yonge St. to reach the Gibson House.
