    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I don’t understand the logic of the provincial government at times. Look at the many highway options just south of us in New York. Yes it is in a completely different country, but the traffic flow of the many different highways are impressive, even just north of the big city itself, where you...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Last year when I was returning from Niagara, there were enough people that were headed back to “Toronto”, so they automatically made an extra express bus from there to Burlington, aka bringing back the 12B for a brief moment. I feel like 2021’s overall summer is going to drive a lot more traffic...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Also what’s with the lack of counter peak service? Imagine if any transit fans or counter peak commuters who don’t have a car wanted to check this new station out then to find out they have no way to go back unless taking rideshare or i guess walking/biking. Better pack some hiking gear just in...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    If we get this Cambridge to Guelph connection going, then that opens the Waterloo region to Wellington. Then naturally, a proper midday Kitchener to Guelph bus would finally get into service, which in turn also gives Owen Sound a proper connection to KW via the "Guelph Owen Sound...

    ^ We will most likely see the most changes happen in September, which is basically the new year for transit as a whole in the GTHA. The upcoming service update (which I believe is on June 27/28), will set the tone for the whole summer, and if we get more frequent service overall then there's no...

    MiWay: Service thread

    I'm pretty sure it would stay the same. It's an even better situation if you could get a free transfer from the upcoming fare integration giving you much more freedom between the network you are heading into (MiWay-TTC or vise versa), but I guess we have to wait and see. But if you are...

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Brampton also has Pearson/UPX as another option which can easily be accessed by the express bus from BCC (and the future Airport Rd Zum extension coming hopefully this September). Even before the pandemic, Brampton did have a ton of options accessing the train network even if it had to be done...

    MiWay: Service thread

    No. There are also no fare gates at the new hub as you pay directly on the MiWay buses. As of right now MiWay only drops off Toronto bound, and only picks up Sauga bound, but see below… Are we finally getting somewhere with Metro Toronto?! Imagine the possibilities we could go with this…

    Durham Region Transit / Pulse

    I’m glad to see that McCowan station will actually serve a purpose instead of just being like a streetcar loop station. Brampton and YRT has never implemented 24 hour service yet, hopefully they catch up before Burlington or Hamilton decides they want to have overnight service as well. One can...

    I promise you this, GO service will completely explode during the summer. I took one of the 407 GO buses that were rarely ever busy today, and there were actual people filling the upper level on the double decker buses. I imagine this is because of people going out more due to massive free time...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Any streetcar connection up to St Clair would be a win, whether it's Spadina, Bathurst, Bay, any north-south road east of Yonge that's not Broadview, or a completely new line. Even extending it beyond there to the crosstown would encourage some streetcar ridership, and faster connections.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Does anyone know why the 407 GO bus services are so abysmal and unreliable right now? There used to be a priority frequency between Trafalgar/407 to the 407 station, and then from there to RHC and Unionville. Buses were coming every 10-15 mins combined but now its a complete hit or miss. I think...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I feel like GO Transit should really take over and especially with GO RER coming, trains can meet buses from the furthest priority station. Trains to Kitchener, Hamilton, Barrie, Niagara and Oshawa could really run super express trains to meet with the long distance buses at these cities that...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    What if there could be another way to bring 2WAD to Milton by using the Kitchener Line? There is a spur west of Georgetown GO and it could head straight south to Milton GO. I guess there would be some complications with both CN and CP but is there really any traffic that would interfere with...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    "We hope LINK427 will take advantage of the decreased traffic volumes to complete this repair." They clearly haven't seen the temporary Highway 7 forced off ramp...
