    I don't like the idea of zone fares because it punishes people for living near zone boundaries, and possibly dividing/isolating communities, and avoiding all that is part of the reason for having...

    Most people in Toronto drive to work as well. 52.9% of Toronto residents use a car to get to work, either as driver or passenger. By your standard it was a mistake for Toronto build subways instead...

    Unlimited transit use for a certain amount of time: e.g. 2 hours.

    That means with one fare you can do more than one trip.

    Like, I take 61 Mavis to Square One at 5:15pm and at 7:00pm I take the...

    The Hurontario-Main LRT? With 45 minute travel time end-to-end and 32km/h average speed, same as TTC subway, I wouldn't call that slow.

    Mississauga Transitway will be great for GO, but for...

    It's not necessarily about LRT, it's about letting people decide for themselves. If municipalities want LRT, let them built LRT. To attempt to interfere and take away self-determination - not letting...

    Transit City is probably the most politicized transit plan in Toronto's history, devised entirely by politicians for political purpose. And you tell us it's not about buying votes, what a joke.

    You do realize that one of the Mississauga ridings is currently held by the NDP, right?

    We must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.

    The longest distance for the TTC is Malvern to Long Branch. Is there so many people doing this the TTC needs distance fares?

    Distance fares make sense for a regional system. TTC is not a regional...

    Yeah, North York is very poorly planned, they never built extra arterials in-between the existing concessions to reduce the distances, e.g. the distance between parallel bus routes. Compare that to...

    So with Hudak's promise to cancel the gas tax funding, TTC will have to find another $167 million. With just over $1 billion coming from fares, then all they have to do is raise fares 16% to make up...

    You bike because you rely on the TTC and you don't need a car ever.

    If someone is forced to buy a car to commute to work, then that means they have a car. Why would you bike to the grocery store...

    The City gets around $160M annually from the Ontario Gas Tax. In 2012, $91.6M in gas tax funding was used for the TTC's operating costs, and $75.0M was used for the TTC's capital costs, so that's...

    The DRL proposal seem to be missing the point. Relieving Yonge from the East, that's the priority. Union to Sheppard-Don Mills should be the first phase(s). We can think about DRL west of Union...

    In a world where most of Jane could be more than 4 lanes wide and where a DRL proposal did not exist, then the Jane LRT would perhaps be a good idea. But unfortunately we don't live in that world.

    And I know you like denying the truth, ShonTron. But seriously:

    Vaughan: 4 high rises under construction
    Markham: 9
    Richmond Hill: 10
    Oakville: 2
    Burlington: 2
    Mississauga: 6
    Brampton: 1

    It doesn't matter what is faster or more comfortable. People in Richmond Hill and Mississauga just live too far away from work to bike. The bike is simply not an option. But Richmond Hill and...

    It doesn't seem like Brampton has much redevelopment potential outside Shopper's World and Queen Street anyways... And they never preserved any additional land for high density. Compare Brampton to...

    I guess Abacus is EKOS in disguise. Their names do sound sort of similar. The Abacus aka EKOS poll being commissioned by the Toronto Sun, the left-wing bias couldn't be more obvious.

    I don't see why naturalization matters. The DVP and Richmond Hill Line would be in the floodplain no matter what. It's called a "floodplain" for a reason.

    Bunching is just a reality of extremely busy and frequent surface routes. Mississauga has the same problem along Dundas and Hurontario. Even back when the 19 was 10 minutes, there was bunching....

    YRT ridership fell 7% in January 2014 compared to January 2013. Yikes.

    The death spiral continues. That's what happens when you keep raising fares: lost ridership, lost revenue, cut service,...
