    Yeah, it's sad, the conversion of Adelaide and RIchmond into one-way really killed the vibrancy that once defined those streets.

    Rogers are douchebags though. I called them up once before and they said I couldn't get current 80GB plan because I don't have right modem. And new modem costs $4 more per month. It doesn't make...

    Gunns Loop is nowhere near as busy as CCTT. All that grass would just get trampled to death by all the crowds.

    How much landscaping does a bus terminal originally designed to handle 25,000 people per weekday and now operating at 160% of capacity usually have?

    That garage is massive. It's like the Erindale garage, It's jsut as massive and to add insult to injury sits on a hill above Burnhamthorpe, and so it just dominates the street. It's just gross, I...

    I have Rogers. Connection goes down like once a year or something like that for me. It's very rare.

    There are times when it's slow and I have to reset modem/router to fix it, but that hasn't...

    Bramalea is busy because of park-and-ride. And the parking lots are already full. It seems like ridership growth in the Georgetown corridor will come primarly from Brampton, Mt Pleasant, Weston,...

    I like the idea of raising corporate taxes for transit. But corporate taxes just for transit? I don't know. There's no connection between corporate tax and transit, like gas tax and road tolls. And...

    Eglinton East has lower ridership because it's shorter. However, Eglinton West has higher ridership potential because it's a corridor with regional significance. And subway would have more regional...

    Weston and former York are much denser than Brampton. It makes sense to provide service that is appropriate to the density and ridership potential. And that means buses for Brampton. It's sort of...

    The 2004 EA already called for the BRT to use the bus bypass shoulders on the 403. But the removal of the Mavis to Hurontario section was definitely later. I forgot about that. So the estimate...

    IIRC, in the 2004 EA, they said $275M. But later they said $180, and got $60M from Province and Feds (1/3 each). And now the true cost turns out to be $275M. Go figure.

    If they asked for $275M...

    Well, both the 44 and 110 serve UTM as well. My point was that it would make more sense to add more service for 44 instead of diverting more Dundas buses, to the point that Dundas buses provides more...

    The Hurontario-Main LRT is planned to be built in two phases as well. It's not unusual. But in this case, it's the least busiest section (north of Square One) that will be built first. It has nothing...

    Doesn't Ottawa have an integrated system too? At least if you count Ontario only.

    What kind of mathematical formula would selectively make 89 to 90, 69 to 70, 49 to 50, and 24 to 25 be worth more than any other interval? That makes no sense. I don't see why they would do that...

    A 6 point difference is a 6 point difference, no matter whether to crosses classes or not. The scores are not given based on classification. They calculated based on the amount of transit. Why don't...

    I don't think there is a vast difference between 49 and 50. Otherwise they would just tell us the category and not bother with the numbers. And in any case Ottawa actually got 49, not 50.

    I don't...

    Ottawa has the third highest per capita ridership in Canada. I would say top 3 is Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa. Ottawa's ridership is declining though because of Conservatives's massive cuts to the...

    Based on my experience in Mississauga, articulated buses actually more unreliable than 40 foot buses. You simply don't notice it as much because the frequency is lower. That's not really an...

    Reasons why the loop is bad idea:

    1. It will interfere with bus service throughout MCC.
    2. It will divert transit away from potentially the busiest and densest section of the Hurontario corridor....

    Yes, TTC generally provides more service than Mississauga. And yes, the higher the frequency, the less the clockface schedule matters. Which is part of why I suggested they added more service. I...

    20 minutes would require MT to add two more buses instead of just one. The running time for the 44 for a round trip is 99 minutes. So 3 buses is 33 minutes, 4 buses is 25 minutes, and 5 buses is 20...

    Weren't there more posts about the merits of the loop here? I think I even made a post opposing it recently. Did the posts get deleted? Or was that in a different thread? I don't remember.
