    Toronto Pearson International Airport

    I checked the distance as the crow flies from BUF to YTZ; it's 94 km (58 miles) whereas SEA to YVR is 205 km (128 miles). The lake gets in the way of a direct drive to Buffalo; by air, it's actually quite a short distance. Are there a lot of commercial flights in the 100 km range?

    Hurontario LRT | Metrolinx

    I'm curious about the Milton Corridor upgrades

    Church-Wellesley Village

    I've been to Woody's many times over the last 20 or so years. Why have I never seen these free chips you speak of?!?

    Bombardier shopping Downsview Airport facility

    CRJ looks like it's getting sold to Mitsubishi Heavy.

    Ion Light Rail (Kitchener-Waterloo) & King/Victoria Transit Terminal

    Damn those bells are annoying AF. Cool video otherwise

    Peterborough Area and Highway 7 Corridor studies

    My question is why counties/regional municipalities even have numbered roads? In Peel Region, I don't think anyone knows the regional road #s as they are not easy to find and they're not on the street signs. I've noticed in Waterloo regions they actually have the regional road numbers on the...

    Church-Wellesley Village

    I understand that we need to make room for condos. What I don't understand is that no space is being made in these new buildings for a proper club venue.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    27 months for Metrolinx to figure out that some of their station names are dumb as nails. Although they never figured it out on TYSSE so I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.

    Cedarbrae Mall

    I'm not familiar with these malls, but I would suggest you're mixing up cause and effect. The cause of these malls going "ethnic" is the declining foot traffic and subsequent loss of the major brands. If there was foot traffic, the major brands would open up in any mall. It's wider economic...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    110 is disappointingly slow.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    The names on this map are pretty terrible. It really gives no sense of place. It's pretty pathetic that you can't even easily find Yonge Street on this map.

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    What I jokingly refer to as the Grand Tour of Mississauga is all the stops annoyingly in between Erindale and Union, so Square One, Cooksville and Dixie. I am aware there are sometimes express buses, but not whenever I wanted to take it. Taking the grand tour eliminates any time savings from...

    Toronto | GO Transit: Cooksville GO Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | WalterFedy

    I have a feeling that number is rail only. I'm positive when the GO buses are taken into account Milton is higher than Kitchener.

    Toronto | GO Transit: Cooksville GO Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | WalterFedy

    Second busiest line after Lakeshore is "some use but not a lot"? I guess we might as well shut down all the other GO lines then.

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    It's simply self-interest. I actually find it easier to drive to Kipling rather than drive to Erindale and sit on a bus that does the Grand Tour of Mississauga (exploring Square One, Cooksville, Dixie, and soon possibly Kipling as well) before heading to Union. I'm sorry, but F that. Just park...
