    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I'm speaking from what I've seen from people who live in York Region. Even those who live right next to Maple or Rutherford generally don't know about the service that is offered on the line, and still end up driving all the way to Highway 407 and paying for the parking. Lakeshore East and West...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    Agree *** w/one caveat, wouldn't it make sense to try and advertise what they have in order to convince the higherups to restore service faster? Let's consider how long it took us to get away from these "Historic Low Demands".

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    You mean the average person especially in the 905 that has an expectation of busses that come every 30 minutes? What average person other than those that live right next to a subway looks at 15 minute headways and says "ONLY 15 minutes"? Reminder, the status quo for most GO lines is hourly...

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Actually Cornell is fine, and so is Smart VMC - don't tie these 2 with Bloomington. Whilst YRT absolutely has a service problem and they should increase service, Viva Purple is at the very least a competent Viva Line (other than the stupid split in the middle), and Cornell has a logical reason...

    Toronto | Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    A meeter and greeter fare from Weston is 5.30, plus an extra 5.30 for the adult fare for whoever you're picking up. I'm pretty sure with that money you can just pay for like 40m in the parking garage.

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Basically what I mean is, a project like the DRL or the Eglinton Crosstown are both extremely expensive and complicated projects, compared to Cornell which is just a simple Bus Terminal. What I'm saying is Cornell is one of the most delayed projects in the GTHA relative to how cheap and simple...

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    That's what I'm talking about. Cornell has appeared on Viva maps as a future station for almost a decade now - at least since 2012 or 2013. 10 years for a bus terminal is remarkably slow and late.

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Is this the most delayed project in GTA history relative to the cost and scale?

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    That's... unusual. I think the only places where this is true is within major cities like Toronto and Ottawa. (and only the ETR). Everywhere else you have destination labels. I assume this is because in these areas the highways are mostly used for Intracity purposes, and as such the final...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    I think it depends on the alignment. Obviously if we're tunneling the whole thing, then no that makes no sense, but if we just extend Line 2 along the Milton corridor and just put a station north of the Mall, it should be fine I think. This is where the question of timing comes in. In theory...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    A think a more logical use for that ROW would be for some Rapid Transit Solution on Ellesmere: Either an extension of the SDBRT, or a new LRT that eventually replaces it.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    The ironic part about that comic is that Quebec is no better at this than we are. The amount of highways Montreal has makes Toronto look like an urbanist's wet dream, and Quebec is spending even more money on massive overbuilt highways (3e lien)

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I find BRT to be a good interim solution. Use it as a way to build up ridership to the point where building a Subway can return immediate results in terms of ridership.
