Transit Strike Survival Kit

Transit Strike Survival Kit1. Be prepared. You might be stranded longer than expected, or have to sleep at the office. 2. Dress for the weather. You won’t look so cool when your ears have fallen off. 3. Bring something warm to drink. As tempting as alcohol might be right at the moment, it is a central nervous system depressant, and you don’t want that. 4. Tempers tend to flare in unpleasant situations. In an emergency, an umbrella can be used in self-defense. 5. Bring something to read. Why not use the opportunity to learn a new language? 7. Make sure any iPods, Blackberries and cell phones are fully charged. For extra safety, you might want to get a portable power pack. 8. Even if you’re walking, never assume that you won’t need road salt and a shovel. 9. Should you encounter the Mayor on your daily commute, get in the spirit of the season by presenting him with a small token of appreciation. Lemons are full of Vitamin C, and more portable than stink bombs.

On a more serious note: if you're looking for transportation during the strike, try Rideshare Ontario by PickupPal.
