    I love this logic. Even though the Liberals are implementing the largest LRT plan on this side of the plane, they're not pro-LRT because wouldn't say the word "LRT" when talking about finch and...

    What!? Of course not. I'm not that stupid. Of course the NDP won't win every riding in Toronto. Anyone who thinks that needs to get their head checked.




    "members of pro LRT parties" = members...

    Where in Toronto is that? I'm tempted to say Hillcrest since that's the only streetcar yard I know of that's beside a rail corridor. But I don't recognize those buildings or the street.

    Edit:...

    Yeah I don't think this problem will be fixed until the summer, where the Yonge line will have extended closures.

    I wonder if the uneven trackbed at Rosedale Station will be fixed. As the train goes over that path of track passengers can feel the train sway back and forth quite a bit. I suppose we're a little...

    With more cash on hand I'm sure they could have multiple TBMs in the ground to build things faster.
  8. I don't think so. People will quickly forget...

    I don't think so. People will quickly forget about Ron Ford and his anti-lrt attitudes. And you act as if Torontonians will never support a pro-LRT politician. But remember that the woman who is most...

    I know. I was making a reference to RoFo's "subways last 100 years" comments.

    It's already been 100 years since 1 Yonge Line opened? Wow time goes fast. ;)

    Thanks for the photo ehlow

    By less subways, I mean I would have built fewer kilometers of subway in the 80s and 90s with the cancelation with the incredibly wasteful 4 Sheppard Line and eventually build a light rail solution...

    What Melbourne does to keep cars out of the way of streetcars:http://youtu.be/qNsMXe_R5S4

    We could use some of that here. Though it wouldn't do much to fix the left turn issue

    No I wasn't. Toronto easily has more km of rapid transit under construction that any point in our history.

    By the way, the TTC unsurprisingly considers SELRT, FWLRT, ECLRT to be rapid transit.
  14. What number? Surely you can't be talking about...

    What number? Surely you can't be talking about the Sheppard Subway's 4000 pphpd. The line didn't even exist until.the early 2000s



    Yeah. Back in the 70s, 80s and 90 the TTC was pushing solely...

    I wouldn't say that we're in a stalemate. We're easily building more subways and rapid transit than any point in our history. More than 25km of that is under construction as we speak, increasing the...

    An subway route moving only 4,000 pphpd is horrible no matter how you frame it. That is BRT level usage.
  17. It's less than ideal if the Tory plan results in...

    It's less than ideal if the Tory plan results in the cancelation of the Relief Line. GO RER + the Relief Line is clearly the better option.



    Yonge will still be there 200 years from now...
  18. If you love subway, Toronto isn't the city to...

    If you love subway, Toronto isn't the city to live. In. There only 4 routes that I'd consider barely viable for heavy rail subways:

    Relief Line (Dundas West to Bloor)
    Yonge North
    Scarborough...

    See my previous post (above). If a candidate promises to do any of those, they'll have my vote. I'll easily pick a candidate with small, practical plans over one with large, impractical ones.

    There are ways to immediately improve our transit system. Roll back the Stints/Ford era cut, build BRT where it makes sense, increase bus route frequencies, implement the TC Bus Plan, purchase more...

    What exactly do you mean by "part of the subway network". Wouldn't this already be part of the subway network? With their increased frequencies, Tory's plan and the GO electrification plan would...

    I believe it uses the Richview corridor. IIRC, Tory's website said its 100% at grade.
  23. So does electrification. Unless the geniuses on...

    So does electrification. Unless the geniuses on Tory's team have somehow figured out how to run frequencies that are better than GO's 15 min or less plan.
  24. Regardless of if the ridsership is there or not...

    Regardless of if the ridsership is there or not this line is too expensive. If the GO corridors were electrified, upgraded to at least 15 min service all day and a few more stations were built, it...

    Well Scarborough is 11,000. Relief line is 14,400. That's 40% more.

    That said, 11,000 isn't horrible for an extension. IIRC, TYSSE will have 11,000 southbound passengers per peak hour at Sheppard...
