    I believe the PSOs will be removed once Georgetown South is completed.
  2. If you look at that schedule, there is roughly 15...

    If you look at that schedule, there is roughly 15 minute peak service to mount pleasant and a couple of very weak off peak services to Bramalea. Not perfect obviously, but an improvement.

    now I'm interested in the details for this. Does this include the full build out of the plan detailed in the EA with the increased VIA service as well as the primitive all day 2 way GO service to...

    The EA seems to suggest that mid-day trips will only be handled by VIA? the announcement today seems to suggest otherwise, Though the peak trips from that are now accounted for, there are only 2...

    I meant at least 2018, thats only 4 years away to go from nothing to an EA to construction to opening day, and considering EAs take 2 years..

    direct K-W bus route while useful, wouldn't serve much...

    all day service probably won't come until 2018 anyway, at which point Metrolinx will likely purchase the track.

    I am interested in what that announcement will be about.. probably just reconfirming...

    ^too late, they have already started asking. (and metrolinx has very obviously declined, the Jane bus right now has something like 2,000 daily users in Vaughan)

    no they don't, they care about the over density, heritage destruction, etc. 43 Gerrard sort of killed itself. They couldn't care less about the design of M+G, the oppose it as it is 3 85ish floor...

    Couple express with track upgrades along the line and it very well could.
  10. no its not. planning couldn't give 2 craps about...

    no its not. planning couldn't give 2 craps about design. They care about the planning behind the design. density, height, setbacks, use, etc. are all considered, not "how nice it looks".

    nope, the double track will end at Unionville as with hourly frequencies a train can travel up to Mount Joy and get back down to Unionville within an hour for the next train to head up.

    no, it would be combined 800 meters. 400 meter walk down, 400 meter walk up again once you get to your stop.

    Its more spots than just Liberty Village. What about the distillery, neighbourhoods to...

    it would presumably be express after Georgetown.

    its a bit longer term, AD2W service to K-W wasn't even official policy up until today. It will presumably be in the transit taxes. think of the...

    by the sounds of 6 minute frequencies they are starting with 3 car trains.

    Sheppard and finch are designed to be 2 car trains but in the sake of frequency they may start with 1 car. they should be...

    absolutely. I wouldn't be surprised if you see combined ridership on the routes drop 40-50%. People would no longer get on the streetcar to ride down a few blocks, as you would have to walk a...

    don't think that is confirmation. Smallspay is saying that The heavy freight traffic may make it unrealistic. (especially given freight trains size and slower speeds)
  17. no, it couldn't. we established this, another...

    no, it couldn't. we established this, another track would need to be built. Its pretty minor work, but it would be needed to be done, as well as adding double platforms to a lot of the train...

    It will presumably be with all the other AD2W projects in planning for the big move.. Brampton will be getting AD2W in the coming years regardless. 2016 won't be the AD2W introduction, that will be...
  19. Just confirmed. apparently it will be...

    Just confirmed.



    apparently it will be brought up to 6 peak hour trains by 2016 and presumably when Brampton gets AD2W Waterloo will as well.

    still doesn't really work as streetcar ridership would plummet.. No way in hell people from Liberty Village would be willing to walk up to Queen street to catch a streetcar. Just doesn't make sense....

    $1 billion into a single GO line gets you AD2W service at hourly frequency, not an urban rail line. once you start to go above 15 minutes all day or so you want electrification anyway. (see the huge...

    and completely nonsensical as it would require the shutdown of the streetcar lines.

    no, it is their responsibility that they know they can exit it. No matter your speed, provided there is space on the outside of the intersection and you have a green light telling you to go, you can...

    extending the LRT much further will be putting it dangerously close to capacity on opening day. extending it beyond Malvern isn't really realistic, and the LRT has already meandered over to the far...
