    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    It's the plan we expected. Makes sense to Use the LSE corridor, was gonna have the Gerrard and East Harbour stations anyway. Also makes East Harbour immediately more attractive (Toronto's Canary Wharf?)

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    By this logic Hybrid Buses and Electric Buses are the exact same thing, why is it then that we have hundreds of Hybrid buses and like 3 electric buses? 1. The battery technology isn't trivial as you seem to be suggesting 2. The integration of the batteries into existing vehicles is not trivial

    Montreal to have the largest Subway system in Canada?

    Yeah, which I am unclear on. I do hope there is some room for future expansion built into the platforms as with every other rapid transit system in recent memory.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I've been riding thew Stouffville line daily so I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring on Scarborough Junction Flyover speculation: A few points: - I don't think Metrolinx plans to service Scarborough Post Flyover - Danforth Rd and St. Clair complicate the design a lot, St. Clair pretty...

    BC is in the West and definitely votes Liberal sometimes.

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    The thing is, the trains do not exist. I'd be happy to be proven wrong . . .

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Ok well this is just a nice hq 4K video of the SRT, enjoy! Also I find it very interesting that the TTC doesn't run trains overnight to clear snow and warm the tracks, is there a reason for this? (It's something Vancouver does)

    GO Transit Electrification (Metrolinx, Proposed)

    Bullseye. False . . . Caltrain is getting something that would be perfect for us. So is New Jersey transit (and its even made by Bombardier.) At this point battery is hardly better than Hydrogen, show me a case where battery trains are deployed running a frequent every 15 minute service with...

    Montreal to have the largest Subway system in Canada?

    A few interesting things: 1. Didn't realize they were converting the OMSF on the DM Line to use with the REM, that makes sense and makes this really feel like more of a network and less a single line since it will have 2 decent OMSF's from day 1. 2. The extensions will probably happen quickly...

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    Once again spreading FUD. Yes the operational budget is going down, but rail service is INCREASING. Especially with the RER contracts coming they could certainly prioritize a vendor who uses a Bombardier EMU design or a hybrid design like what NJT is getting . . .
