    Dundas+Cawthra

    Hello everyone, I'd love to hear your opinions about the "intersection" of Dundas and Cawthra (and the train tracks) in Mississauga, as well as any possible reconfigurations. Geometrically, there is no intersection as Dundas and Cawthra are in different planes, with two flights of stairs...

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I apologize, I did not catch on... hope I didn't offend you. I just really detest the silly old "us versus them" stance, and I mistakenly thought you were engaging in it. Have a nice evening.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Interesting how that jump was made. Disagreements do not have to be accompanied by imaginary fault finding for justification and superiority. Those who stay cool with people they disagree with are very refreshing and agreeable. ☺

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Respectfully, there is no sense in trying to play down the article or discredit its content just because it is contrary to what one would like to hear. It's just mathematical. There has been a drop, and it coincides with the pilot — it is real. Posting this, it was hoped, would stir up...

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Good evening, Just as I would like to see media articles with positive content about the pilot, I should also be open to ones that remind me of the negatives, if any. It's not right for me to pretend that everything is fine and ignore contrary opinions...

    Good afternoon, I believe it's only a matter of time. Until then, sleep well.

    Toronto | Mississauga Transitway | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | IBI Group

    Good afternoon, Just a friendly reminder that the complex in question is in Toronto, not Mississauga.

    Mississauga Cycling Master Plan

    Good afternoon, I apologize if this has already been posted before. The search function did not yield anything. As per the Mississauga Cycling Master Plan posted above, my city is working on a new pedestrian walkway across the Credit River underneath the QEW bridge, as well as a pedestrian...

    Sprawl is Good for You?

    Good evening, I do :-) The motor vehicle can both kill and save lives. It is a neutral, inanimate object that can be both positive or negative depending on how wisely or foolishly it is treated. And by the way, it is my belief that even those who think the motor vehicle is not great have only...

    The Simple Solution to Traffic

    Good afternoon, There doesn't have to be a contradiction: a city can be transit dependent and still have room for cars; it's just a matter of priority: public transit must be expanded, incentivized and encouraged. Cars should have a place because they offer qualities that neither public transit...

    The Simple Solution to Traffic

    Insofar as mechanical efficiency and travelling from A to B in space, yes absolutely. But that is not the full story. With an average car, I get EDIT: privacy, freedom of movement, detachment from physical strength, /EDIT, weather protection, heating, air conditioning, airbags, crumple zones...

    The Simple Solution to Traffic

    Slow reaction time is a human flaw, not a vehicle flaw. It occurs whether you are in the driver's seat or on the bicycle saddle.☺ Too many vehicles is, whether those vehicles are cars or bicycles.☺ Neither is bicycle lane capacity.☺ Which is applicable to bicycles and bicycle lanes.☺...

    The Simple Solution to Traffic

    Good evening, I join my voice to and agree with those whose future vision includes cars. There are some people who really wish cars would just disappear and refuse to accommodate them when imagining the future. Some even extend that dislike to any form of motorized transport, including public...

    General cycling issues (Is Toronto bike friendly?)

    Good morning, You're absolutely right, it is misleading to rely solely on latitudes due to the Atlantic Gulf Stream. That is why a city like Toronto is much colder than the French Riviera even though it is situated on roughly the same latitude, and therefore you were right to object to the...

    Mississauga Cycling Master Plan

    "I haveto retract my complaints. The city andregion has actually been very aggressive building this network" Being willing to revise your stance and criticize yourself is a sign of maturity and civility. It's big of you. I take my hat off respectfully to you and I apologize if my comments hurt...
