    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    [Crossposting from TTC: Other Items (catch all)] We went to check out SmartCentres Place bus terminal and Vaughan Metropolitan Centre as a whole, and we were thoroughly impressed! The station really shaped up to be very nice, even though the terminal is not that busy just yet.

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    As has been mentioned the reason Metrolinx gave (as laughable as it is) is that grey resembles the TTC subway trains which are Torontos rapid transit . . .

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    The Ontario Line will have PSD's as per the business case. Everyone can stop debating them now lol, they are good and the cities with good transit tend to implement them.

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

    The Cambridge extension looks interesting to me because of all the elevated sections, that will start to make the system feel very RT like vs. a tramway. Will be curious to see if and where a second OMF would be.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    Actually if you compare one car on the REM or Canada Line to the Subway in Toronto the cars are actually very similar in size. Weight I don't know given the TTC's cars do seem to be on the heavy side.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)
