    I know the UAE or somewhere has 3 class metro trains.. It may be a good idea but you would definitely have to add an additional car to trains instead of converting one, making 11 or 13 car trains.

    It's not whether it should or not, but the fact remains that the extension only has a positive cost benefit ratio for the Steeles extension. Then there is also the fact that we only have $15 billion...

    The two stations that will get most of the ridership on the extension will need to be huge to handle the load of passengers that will use them. (Steeles and RHC)

    he answered them exactly as I would expect him to. a lot of those questions simply won't have answers for a while until Metrolinx determines exactly what it is doing with the $15 billion, and has an...

    from my experience the bus lanes work fairly well, the exception is a short distance before the TTC parking lot, where lots of cars cut into it to turn into the lot. most buses have left the lane at...

    Eg west is pointless if there is a good GO connection to the airport. It would take well over an hour using the LRT to get to the airport from downtown, or you could take GO in ~30 minutes. there is...

    no, land prices would be just as high, probably much, much higher. Just as many people would want to live downtown, just not as many would be able to, instead being forced to live in some midrise way...

    the 407 could easily support 120km/h. Really its about the design speed of the highway, the central portion of the 401 simply isn't designed for that sort of speed. Meanwhile you regularly see people...

    There was an option for 4 lanes through the Yonge area, but the local residents and businesses chose the 3 lane one. You know, the people who will actually be driving on that road, not some armchair...
