    Naming TheTigerMaster dictator of Toronto would so be a good move.

    Toronto has a bright future ahead of itself, especially in the transit area. That I am certain of.

    My apologies.

    I was incorrectly under the impression that the lengths of the individual fixed blocks were a function of the the worst possible stopping distance (accounting for weather, grade,...

    Why does the TTC call the streetcar facilities "barns"? I've never heard them refer to their bus or subway facilities with that name.

    The fixed block system will be phased out and replaced with a moving block system once ATC is ready. I believe the fixed block system will still be used when the trains are under manual control. The...

    When the TTC studied the Eglinton West LRT a few years ago, they found that ridership in the segment would be in BRT range. Considering that Tory wants only 3 stations along Eglinton West, I'd be...

    It's amazing how much things have changed. The situation must have felt utterly hopeless for queer people back then.

    That's what we've been trying, and have failed to do for nearly 30 years. Companies don't want their offices located in the suburbs. In fact, many companies that opened suburban offices are now...

    Sorry, but the reckless planning of SmartTrack indicates otherwise. Remember that this plan calls for a subway to be built under Eglinton West. That's a line that may very well have less usage than...

    It wasn't included in the render.

    After the hybrid bus fiasco, I'm a little reluctant to experiment with new technologies. Let's see how Montreal handles this before biting the bullet

    They couldn't pick cladding that's more interesting to look at? Thankfully most people will drive by this thing at 80kph, so they won't have to stare at this for too long.

    On second look, the streetcar looks like it can be salvaged if needed. But since it's at the end of it's life, they might as well scrap it.

    Did the streetcar derail?

    I'm really glad that nobody...

    Ditto. The trains are almost always empty at Main Street Station. The first time I used that segment of the line in AM rush, I was surprised by how few people were on the train.

    I wonder what will happen to the CLRV that was involved in the collision. It was damaged pretty badly. It could be scrapped and used for parts.

    I'd be interested to know what motivates these people to take public transit, while driving their automobiles would almost certainly get them to where they're going faster.

    Personally, I have cars...

    TTC riders are rich! The plurality of riders have $85,000+ incomes.

    I'd be interested to see this compared to the average income of Toronto car drivers. Given that more valuable homes tend to lie...

    It's easy to miss. Downsview Park looks more like abandoned industrial lands than a park. However, as a UTer, you still should be ashamed of yourself for not realizing it was a Park :mad:

    I think the podium of 1 Bloor East is slightly better, despite the design of the ground level looking fairly banal.

    I do agree that it will be sad to see this building go. But lets see some renderings of what they have planned before making up our minds. If what they have planned is at least as nice or better than...
