Transit Use 2022

A bit of a later post on last year’s transit, but better late than never.

My transit started to rebound in 2022, but I also started biking more often. The tradition of reporting since 2014 continues. I counted “unofficial” transfers on the STM as two rides. I took 45 rides in 2022. My rides were paid for using: Presto (4) and OPUS (41).

Agency Fare Media Total Rides Total Cost
STL OPUS 1 4.50
STM OPUS 40 173.45
TTC Presto 4 12.80

Rides by Day of Week

I took more work transit rides in 2022 with some projects restarting at the airport. We took a trip to Toronto in June, and went to friends’ for dinner in Laval.

Rides by Month

Year over year

Weekday riding continues to be low (other than in 2017 when I was seconded to the airport for the summer). Historically, I stopped going to axe throwing league on Sundays from September 2018 so no longer have higher riding on that day.

Year-over-year Rides by Day of Week and Month

Coming out of the pandemic slowly increased my transit use, but biking on my new cargo bike picked up more of the further away trips.

It has been a busy month so far. I spent the first week of May in Toronto for work at a PMP boot camp, but this let me enjoy some of my favourite restaurants that still exist (Tofu Village, Wvrst, Salad King) and spend the weekend with friends. The next week and a bit I spent all my evenings studying for the PMP exam, which I passed on Thursday this week. I am so happy it is done and I can go back to having too much to do on all my projects.

Last Saturday, I celebrated being at Arup for 10 years.
