    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Maybe the TTC should just take over Metrolinx.

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    I feel like I'm going crazy watching this over the years. Mad, loco. Where are the shovels? WHEN are the shovels? Donde estas el palas?

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    As I've said before, when David Miller was mayor I supported the idea. But in 2020 I would be lying if I said I didn't resent him a little for not pursuing any subway lines beyond the York U extension. Now I'm not saying the LRT wouldn't have gotten the job done. However, the current LRT line...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Seems strange to see people advocate for an LRT to the Scarborough Centre for it's only rail connection. Maybe for an East-West line of sorts but not it's main connection. The SRT has been overcapacity during rush ever since the 90s. I really don't see an LRT only solution here, but I do think...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I agree. But looking at recent street reconstructions such as Roncy, St Clair and Spadina, I'd say hold the dramatics for the final product. While each of these street rebuilds do leave something to be desired, trees always seem to be a priority. Also, the final configuration shown here is at...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    AFAIK Kennedy Station would have to be rebuilt to pursue any above ground solution that doesn't require a ton of expropriation. Simply elevating it over Eglinton and McCowan would also require a ton of expropriation. Line 2 was built to be extended eastward on Eglinton.

    The Stock Market; Trading and Investments Thread

    Didn't see a thread for traders, didn't really look too hard though. What are you currently investing in? Currently holding FLT.V, VERY.CN, GEVO, MMED, and a halted SHRM

    Say what now? Can you provide more details?

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    @8:21 they say that Eglinton Connects is progressing? I thought it was unfunded.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Subway to Sheppard East is definitely the best plan moving forward. I supported the LRT years ago when proposed by Miller but my position has since evolved. Would've been nice to see a full LRT system in Scarborough, but I get the sentiment that transit investment in Scarborough has been led...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I always felt that the Sheppard subway should interline with the YUS at Sheppard West and terminate at York University in the west. Direct connection to Finch LRT and a major trip generator. In the east, I think either Line 2 or Line 4 should terminate at Malvern Town Centre. Those don't...

    TTC: Jane LRT

    Yes, most people are going Downtown. Not a majority, but most. And yes, most of the growth in terms of employment in total numbers is also Downtown. The YorkU extension, Line 5 Eglinton, Line 7 Finch West, Scarborough Subway, and the Yonge extension will all increase the burden on already...

    TTC: Jane LRT

    I understand why you might have it going to Eg West Station then back to Dufferin but I think in this scenario riders can simply transfer at Line 5, or Caledonia or Mount Dennis.. A Jane > Eglinton > Dufferin LRT would cross 2 GO lines where riders can get express service downtown or to the...

    TTC: Jane LRT

    Jane LRT Steeles > Weston Road (Mt Dennis) > Eglinton (Line 5, interlined) > Dufferin > Exhibition > Bremner > Union Think of the ridership on such a line. Honestly, I get not every line has to go downtown. But if there's a city that needs more transit going in to Downtown, it's Toronto.
