    This isn't real rapid transit. Real rapid transit means high capacity, so rail + full grade separation + high frequency.

    There will be no Sunday service and no full grade separation either. They...

    Why are VIVA buses bypassing transitway stations in the first place? I don't understand.

    Yeah maybe. I voted in every federal/provincial/municipal election the past 11 years (since I became eligible to vote). Reading about Rob/Doug Ford these past few years made me lose interest. It was...

    Zum 501 within York accepts YRT fares like normal, and YRT is paying for the service, so YRT counts those trips as part of VIVA Orange ridership.

    Good news for Mississauga. I was planning to vote for Crombie too, but after the Hazel endorsement it seemed kinda pointless so I didn't go.

    I think Toronto made the right choice here. Although the Vote Compass thing said my beliefs are closest to Chow (~75% vs ~55% and ~35% for Tory and Ford respectively) I do think Tory is the best...

    I don't use YRT but I said all this in my post #431. Fares are way too high. Too much service taken from non-VIVA services. It's a downward spiral for a while now.

    So someone who takes the bus in these snazzy, brand new busways in York Region don't need to think about the current ridership decline? If you say so.

    If you want to determine the financial impact of co-fare with future transfers, you have to consider the current transfers. Otherwise, you are comparing to nothing, which is stupid.

    Subsidizing TTC-GO transfers will cost the province a lot assuming a muge number of TTC riders currently transferring to/from GO. But they aren't, so it won't.

    If you look at year end totals, the ridership increased in 2013 because of the strike in 2012. But if you compare a month in 2013 to the same month in 2012, and exclude the months with strike and...

    With YRT ridership declining in 2014 compared to 2013, it makes me wonder if all this opposition to the Rapidways is a bad thing. Busway on Highway 7 in operation for a year now and ridership is...

    So 26/76 will be 7.5 minutes combined instead of 6.5 minutes. I guess that's not a big deal but still backwards. 26/76/86/206 ridership has been steadily declining since those protests. Probably not...
