Arriving ends in a G.

Am I the only one who can't stand the new TTC subway voice?

"Now arriveen at St. Patrick station."

It's arriving. Arriving with a G.

I haven't taken the subway in a while, and only a couple of the streetcars use the automated voice. Is it really that bad? It's a women's voice, right?

Personally, I enjoy the different personalities of the drivers when they announce the stops... there's the guy that sings all the street names, the guy that announces all the attractions in the area, the guy that updates us with the time every few stops... etc.

I love the TTC. I hate most of the people that ride the TTC.

Hmmm....Julia, I think you must take into account the Toronto accent....the one where the last letters of any word dissapear, especially if they are Gs, Ns, or Ts...remember, it's pronounced Tronno...

Oh, and the best voice is the lady on the RT who enunciates "Scar-bor-o Cen-ter"...she kills me...

btw, this is Seb LOL
