Still No Such Thing as a Free Lunch; Bus Trips Another Story Altogether

Last week I trekked out to the Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto at Mississauga to check out its interesting, evolving show "Fall In/Fall Out." More on that hopefully later this week. But for the time being I wanted to spread the word that the U of T's shuttle bus rides from its downtown campus to the Blackwood's campus--previously $12 round trip for non-students--are now free if you pick up your tickets at the downtown campus' Barnicke Gallery.

This new ticket intiative doesn't make the bus ride--which as many know, happens on a pretty bare-bones school bus--any shorter; it's still 45 minutes to an hour when I've gone. But the initiative does make the Blackwood a little more accessible financially, which is nice. For info on the Barnicke's opening/ticket sign-out hours click here.
