I was thinking of visiting a friend who lives on the other side of Oshawa. I called the Grayhound and they do have a bus that goes directly there but the price is very expensive - over $50 one way even for a senior.It would take 7 hours of travel or if I went overnight, it would take four hours. Only two day time buses, one around 5 a.m. and the other at 9:20. Both times are really not good for me. They also have only one night bus at 10:10 p.m.
I then called Go Transit and their price is more reasonable. It was $17.70 one way for seniors, but the way is very confusing to me and I am afraid I may get lost.
I would have to take a bus from Hamilton to Aldershot. Transfer to the Go Train and get off at Oshawa. From Oshawa I would need to take a Peterborough #88 bus. I would then have to ask to get off somewhere before the Go Station.
I would not have hesitated before, as this person was a very good friend of mine and we have not met for about 14 years. However, my sense of direction is very poor and I'm not sure I could go myself.
I will see if the person is willing to go into Toronto and meet downtown for a few hours. I wish I could get this person to use a computer and go on Skhpe,that would work very well, but so far that has not worked out.
Ah well, there still is the phone, thankfully.
Thanks for dropping by.
