TTC commuters get snarky over snarled morning commute
Subway and streetcar service in downtown core halted during morning rush
What to do when you're waiting in an endless line for a TTC shuttle bus? Tweet.
Hordes of commuters took to Twitter this morning during a massive TTC service shutdown caused by a hydro vault fire.
Most of them weren't very happy.

Some commuters got a little cheeky about the delays.
