    Not only did they promise a $15 Billion pot of cash, they also specifically committed to building the DRL, GO Electrification and one other project (can't remember).

    Some subway drivers to get lonely down there. A subway driver I know told me that the thing he misses most about driving busses is the interaction.

    Actually IMO the underground ECLRT + SRT isn't very wasteful. Especially compared to the subway extension option.

    Regardless, why cant Sok compromise his rational nature just once to get into...

    Oh wow. I was half paying attention and I thought that was two LFLRVs. Damn that looks massive.

    BTW I'm enjoying your images hawc. Keep it up :)

    I'd love to see Sok support underground ECLRT + SRT. Then he could claim to be a "subway champion", unlike Chow, and hopefully get more support from the subway lovers who would have otherwise voted...

    IIRC, all door boarding will improve travel times by 10%. Not a huge amount.

    Thanks small. That's basically what I assumed was the case. Nice to know that there isn't anything structural preventing this.

    I wonder how constly it would be to retrofit the extra connections...

    Does anyone know why the Flexity Outlook can't be coupled for revenue service? I've seen them travel coupled together and everything looked like it was working fine to me.

    Of course I'm not an...

    Depends how you define "space". Bumper to bumper, 4 cars could fit. But this isn't how cars travel. If they're moving down city streets I'm guessing each car would take up at least 10 m of road space...

    Well the fact of the matter is that the huge majority personal vehicles, especially during rush hours, have only one, maybe two (I'm being generous) persons on it. I invite you to stand at any...

    Couldnt you could get the data with a freedom of information request? Maybe even just asking someone at the TTC?

    I agree completely. If streetcars were replaced by busses, there'd simply be less people with a need to use those routes.

    Sorry for the novice question, but what does "on spec" mean?
  15. I don't want to imagine the disaster we'd be...

    I don't want to imagine the disaster we'd be going through if we had gotten rid of streetcars in the 70's. The streetcars today can hardly meet the capacity demands. Imagine if we had replaced them...

    Look at what made the news again:

    Scott Stinson: Is it time to split Ontario into two provinces, Toronto and Not Toronto?

    These too:



    For the past few months I've been insisting that off peak travel should be discounted to encourage higher transit usage.

    All I need is for Soknacki to support the Transit City bus plan and he'll have my vote 100% for sure

    We're $120 Million (capital) away from a vastly superior bus system. C'mon Sok, you can do it!...

    Speaking of that... Councillor Raymond Cho has just announced his intention to table a motion asking the TTC to investigate a Rouge Park Relief Line ;)

    Yes. Other than that I agree with him wholeheartedly.

    How did the wye add a billion dollars to the cost of Sheppard Subway? The entire line (Yonge to Don Mills) costed us $1 Billion to build. So unless the exclusion of the wye would have...
