Getting around Toronto made easier with new Web site
  
Works and Emergency Services -- The City of Toronto's Transportation Services
Division is launching a Web site aimed at making it a little bit easier to get
around the city and finding out about events taking place in Toronto.

The Web site, www.city.toronto.on.ca/events ], displays events taking place in the city as well as construction activities. After reaching the site, click on Community Events Database to access the events registry. "With so many events going on in Toronto, we wanted to make it easier for people to plan a trip across the city," said Angie Antoniou, Manager, Right-of-Way Management for the City of Toronto. "Road closures due to events and construction can cause people a significant amount of frustration. We want to help people out by letting them know where and when activities are taking place, enabling them to get around the city quickly and safely." Residents and visitors to Toronto are reminded that using public transit is one of the best ways to attend events in the city, added Antoniou. Visitors to the Web site can view a calendar of events in text form. Future plans call for a map on the site to illustrate where road closures or lane restrictions are taking place. In addition to helping people plan their way around the city, the site also offers residents an opportunity to submit an application for an event. Just by clicking onto the site, residents can access the necessary documents to apply for their event.
