My point exactly. That is the case in Scarborough. If one lives in Scarborough, lets say along Sheppard East (around Agincourt), and needs to go to York U, how does one do so via transit with minimum of transfers? One will need to transfer twice just to get to the York Rocket at Sheppard/Yonge.
My main point is that in the city, because we have designed the TTC to only have arterial road routes which are mostly long, having an arterial road which requires more than 1 transfer to get from one end of the city to another is terrible and discourages those with cars to switch to transit.
