    5 days. RFQ will need to be completed this week (if it's to be on time).

    Sheppard Line has excellent on time performance. Based on the on time performance of the 510 and 512, I'd expect the same thing of SELRT as well.

    When will the contracts be tendered for SELRT? it's my understanding that it's happening rather shortly.

    It's appeasement through politics.

    And no, planning is not an inherently political exercise. Planning CAN be political, but it doesn't necessarily have to be.

    Collisions haven't "plagued" any of our LRV in ROW operations in this city. Someone could easily compile a list of 100 or so things that have a greater negative impact on our operations.

    Spadina isn't an LRT because it has no signal priority and close stop spacing. Other than that, the ECLRT and 510 Spadina operate under identical circumstances.

    So are these drivers* in Houston stupid, incompetent, reckless or just plain old inconsiderate?

    I never said it never happened. what I was trying to say was that it was rare occurrence. So rare that it's not worth making accommodations for.

    You meant to say Malvern LRT.



    I think this has more to do with the SRT being interlined with the ECLRT back in the TC days. Now that it's not longer an option, they may be open to the Malvern...

    I live along spadina. The amount of times I've seen a car crash into a streetcar on the ROW is zero. I take the 510 Spadina daily and the amount of times I've been delayed by a car hitting a...

    I wouldn't have supported the RL 25 years ago either. In 2031, the line will only move 13k people. 25 years ago, that number would have been far lower. If we built the RL 25 years ago, for at least a...

    Making it "fully grade separated" (I assume you mean HRT). Is a bad idea. That would essentially make any extension of the line east of Kennedy or west of Mt. Dennis impossible. The reason we chose...

    Well building empty office buildings is pretty stupid. But an office building that isn't vacant easily generates far greater ridership than a condo of the same size.

    The 510 Spadina isn't a light rail line. It's a Streetcar in a right-of-way. If it were upgraded to LRT standards, with signal priority and two car LFLRV trains that line wouldn't even be half full...
