GO Transit is also experiencing significant delays as a result of the weather. 

Several bus routes are delayed by up to an hour due to the road conditions including routes 12, 25, 29, 40, 48, 51 and 96. 

The city applied salt on the roads during rush hour this morning and advised commuters to consider public transit or travelling in off-peak hours. 

But for some Torontonians, the snow was a welcome treat.
