    Are you seriously suggesting Unviersity and Yonge south of Bloor don't have enough ridership?

    There's nothing wrong with the layout. The distance between Yonge and University is the same as the...

    The Gardiner delays for Milton buses recently have been annoying. Now I just use 103 Hurontario Express to Port Credit and take the Lakeshore trains instead. Plus, being stuck on the Gardiner I...

    So the Sheppard Line added 1/5 of the riders that a line that is 5 times longer did. Wow, that's terrible.

    Toronto's current and upcoming streetcars are called LRVs (light rail vehicles) for a reason: they are light rail vehicles.

    But yes, it is incorrect to call Hurontario LRT a streetcar. It is...

    I agree, let's kill the Beer Store. Beer should not be allowed anywhere in Ontario.

    Personally, I think alcoholic drinks should be banned altogether. I have no problem with porn though. Porn doesn't kill or hurt people like alcohol does.

    Is pornography actually banned in regular...

    And their numbers indicate no economic growth and development? It seems like you will believe whatever you want to believe, even if the numbers indicate the exact opposite. There is no point...

    I'm not sure if you're serious but almost every system in Canada lost ridership in 2009. Mississauga lost 6% ridership that year. Brampton lost 0.25%. The entire US lost 3.8% ridership that year....

    New jobs in Cooksville can be worked by people outside Cooksville. New populations in Cooksville can work outside Cooksville. Otherwise they wouldn't need to use any transit, LRT or no.

    New jobs...

    Yeah, that's what I said in my second post. Zone fare should not isolate communities.

    Zone fare is a non-starter for the TTC though. It's not a regional system. YRT covers a huge distance, so I...

    Between Danforth and York Mills, there is Eglinton as a through route to Yonge from the East. These huge gaps, side-by-side. In these gaps: Thorncliffe Park, Flemingdon Park, and Don Mills. You can...

    Lawrence East would be an awesome corridor for LRT. Lots of redevelopment potential, and the ridership is high too.

    Even considering 84kB, and considering the lack of exif or embedded ICC profile, the photo is surprisingly soft. The blank sky, there's no details there to begin with either. 84kB should not be that...

    As a 905er, I believe that the elevated portion of the Gardiner should be tolled to pay for its upkeep/maintenance. Otherwise, demolish it, spend money building subways and LRT instead, simple as...

    Keep in mind, short trips don't strain the system as much as long trips. Even to serve three 15 minute trips does not require as much resources as it would to serve a single 60 minute trip, for...

    :3



    Outer HOV lanes basically impossible to enforce. The standard practice now is to put them in the middle. So I think these HOV lanes have no effect on congestion for better or worse.

    Oh right. That on-street LRT beside the Richview Corridor. I forgot about that.

    Actually they aren't even building that section yet, if ever, so he's wrong either way. Somehow Toronto decided that...

    Most people in Toronto drive to work as well. 52.9% of Toronto residents use a car to get to work, either as driver or passenger. By your standard it was a mistake for Toronto build subways instead...

    Unlimited transit use for a certain amount of time: e.g. 2 hours.

    That means with one fare you can do more than one trip.

    Like, I take 61 Mavis to Square One at 5:15pm and at 7:00pm I take the...

    The Hurontario-Main LRT? With 45 minute travel time end-to-end and 32km/h average speed, same as TTC subway, I wouldn't call that slow.

    Mississauga Transitway will be great for GO, but for...

    Transit City is probably the most politicized transit plan in Toronto's history, devised entirely by politicians for political purpose. And you tell us it's not about buying votes, what a joke.
