    It made sense to me the first time, but I like the wording of the second attempt better.

    My guess is it has to do with having room to work as well as site access. There doesn't appear to be access on the left side of the picture meaning both machines must be lowered in from the same side...
  3. I asked a very similar question of the staff in...

    I asked a very similar question of the staff in Ottawa, since their LRT is similar in design to Eglinton. A high floor, automated system like Vancouver's seems to fit best at first look but what it...
  4. It's a very different point of view in Ottawa...

    It's a very different point of view in Ottawa (where I currently am) which has just signed off on an LRT and the public usually refers to it as a Subway. Very similar to Eglinton; low platforms,...

    At what point is that? When it opens? After it's running and all the bugs are out of the rolling stock? I'm not sure there is a point of no cancellation when it comes to Ontario transit projects!

    Yes they do, since people around the province aren't going to be happy watching "their tax dollars" all apparently being funneled towards the GTA. Since you used North Bay as an examples and I know...

    I was going to start listing some of the other great things about London like that, but I wanted to keep my post concise. One thing to mention about that though is that buses and river services don't...

    I don't think surface vehicles could be fare by distance, and as others have mentioned I'm not aware of any mass transit systems that have FBD on buses or trams for local service. You don't have to...

    Yeah I don't think anybody was quite expecting the level of demand for the 10 000 cards they were releasing. They had to add 2000 more just to cover the days they claimed they'd be out at other...

    As others have mentioned, I don't think the TTC needs a new name or redesign. I think the better project would be to envision what a new regional transport agency would be called and branded as, if...

    I agree that it seems redundant to design new pictograms, but I don't think just going with an international standard is necessarily better. It's all about conveying the message as effectively as...

    I noticed, and realized what you had done there. It's a good depiction of the train, but somehow it seems grumpy, mean or upset, to me it doesn't invoke a friendly image. GO changed logos with their...

    I don't think you could use different logos for the different trains on the Y-U-S, my guess is that most people have no idea that the Rockets run only on the Y-U-S. In the minds of most people,...

    This looks better. I acknowledge that the TTC font isn't great for directions but it maintains the character of the system. This font does so as well. It doesn't seem out of place.

    Very clean and legible, and reminds me quite a bit of the London Underground. I may well be mistaken, but if that's not the Ontario Northland font it's extremely close. The colours remind me of the...

    The question is what kind of Heavy Rail? Subways, UPX and GO trains all fall into that category. Although at first glance building a TTC subway line makes the most sense, building a GO compatible...

    I think we can all agree that PRESTO is a solid plan, but that 1.0 was flawed in some small but key areas. I don't think replacement at this point would be cost effective by any means, unless Ottawa...

    I think the concept of building the DRL as a S-Bahn style service with double deck overhead powered EMUs is a good idea for many reasons, but is unlikely to happen due to an even larger list of...

    I think there might be some confusion between what is being thrown around as the concept of "Open Payments", where contactless credit and debit cards are used, and the Open Payment Initiative, which...
