    With the province (and maybe the feds chipping in), we would all pay for the capital costs of the extension. The city of Toronto would only pay their portion of the capital costs of the extension up...

    The provincial gasoline tax has been at 14.3¢ a litre since 1992. Time to index it to inflation.

    Put the blame on Rob Ford for "cancelling" Transit City at the start of his term. Took years to reverse that. Should get back fully after he loses, along with his lapdog councillors.

    Does the Mayor and Councillors still get to park free at the Green P parking lots & garages. They were forced to turn in their free TTC passes. Just wondering. There are Green P lots along Eglinton.

    According to this link, the Vivanext goes along Highway 7, to get a station at the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre. Highway 407 Station will not connect with Vivanext. Maybe you mean further east.

    There is also an option for another 60 new streetcars, depending on funding. If they continue to use the CLRV's after all the 204 new streetcars arrive, I would expect they'll exercise that option.

    The government doesn't want to increase the speed limit because it would mean a cut in revenue.

    For the 1.3 people inside each automobile, I guess it could discourage them from using that automobile and switch to public transit or bicycle.

    The TTC wants to remove some streetcar stops, however, some NIMBYs and others don't want that to happen because they might have to walk an extra short block.
