    TVMs only take a week or two to install, they will likely start them in early august, if they start them at all.

    PRESTO cards will only be able to be purchased at subway stations from my understanding.

    No it isn't. Our credit rating would be destroyed if we were in that rough of shape. In reality we have a large amount of debt, but nothing dangerous that would require austerity.

    The TTC is removing a lot of the closely spaced stops as well, and is moving the remaining ones so that they are all at least at signalized intersections. That should help quite a bit, drivers will...
