    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Better use of funds does not mean cheaper, it means value for your money. Not only is Finch particularly narrow through this section, but an at-grade LRT is not a good use of what essentially will be used as an express transfer between the two Line 1's.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    I love it. Looks more like the old streetcars.

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    I really dont think Finch should go East from where it is now. Extending the Sheppard subway west is a much better use of funds.

    TTC: Automatic Train Control and Subway Platform Screen Doors

    Yes but the Eglinton Crosstown related closures will still go on for some time.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    To add to this: ridership has also changed post pandemic. Its less of the 9-5 and more weekend/evening/reverse commute. All the more reason to expand weekend service and off-peak/2 way operations.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The issues of the stations werent discovered until well into construction. It turned out the surveys that the TTC provided Metrolinx for underneath Eglinton station were very wrong, and they encountered a lot of unexpected utilities, concrete, garbage from the 1950s subway build etc. It was a...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The issue is that the two stations that are the most delayed are the two most important stations on the line, at Eglinton and Eglinton West. So opening it before they are done is almost pointless, and they will be the last to be done.

    Hoverlink - Toronto to Niagara Hovercraft service starting 2023

    Absolutely. But the kind of boat has an impact on the port location too. I highly doubt they would let a hovercraft into the Toronto Harbour. But a regular cat ferry? Easily.

    Hoverlink - Toronto to Niagara Hovercraft service starting 2023

    I think that a water connection between these two areas is a no brainer, I am just having trouble with the hovercraft decision. No one else uses one, all the other ferries in the great lakes, like the two on lake michigan, are high speed cat boats. https://www.lake-express.com/ Why are we yet...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    This is why im weary of the decisions or requests to want to make the 407 Transitway an LRT or Ontario Line, aka some kind of rail service. The advantage of a busway is huge in lower density areas like around the 407, as the bus can leave the transitway and go directly to the destinations it...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Its not just a big hole anymore. While underpinning was a nightmare, things are moving fast now there.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The p3 consortiums and the government are basically in a sue-off stalemate with each other right now. No one wants to pull the trigger that would cause another round of lawsuits and counter suing and potentially more delays because of it. Mom and Dad are just going to pretend to be happy until...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    I did not say that GO and VIA should be consolidated into one service? Is that what you think I said? I want VIA and GO to compete on the same line, just as much as you. However, VIA should have to pay into the rail improvements. Why should Metrolinx have to pay for the improvements that VIA...
