    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    TTC don't seem to be an organization that likes changes. Took them long enough to get rid of the trolley poles. We're suggesting them to change their fundamental track designs. I don't think so. They'll probably buy the exact same specs streetcars so they don't have to test them across every...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    Living beside the 401 means higher air pollution from all the trucks passing by, especially near bottlenecks and highway to highway junctions where they have to brake all the time. It also means noise pollution when you keep your window open at night. That peacefully quiet night never happens...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    They could have easily rebuild Regent Park into that.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    You mean increase the flat fee per vehicle from $120 a year (that is $10 a month) to some sustainably higher amount. That's the so called license plate sticker fee. That $60 additional TO annual license fee that David Miller slapped on got killed by Rob Ford and no one dares to slap one back on yet.

    And all our cost of living jumps 5-10% cause all our goods flow though that highway. I don’t need that tax. No thanks. They might as well tax everyone a rate based on the proximity of living close to the 401. This would just spoil all the traffic into the nearby roads slowing down transit. A...

    Hurontario LRT | Metrolinx

    Since they don't have a license plate, some think they are entitled to running reds and ploughing through open streetcar doors. Now that the city have timed lights to give pedestrians a head start, bikes take advantage of that. The whole point is for pedestrians to not get run over by turning...

    Hurontario LRT | Metrolinx

    Highway ramps are the most dangerous place for pedestrians and cyclists. The kid is killed on an on ramp to the highway where he was suppose to wait till traffic is clear before crossing. I had the feeling that he was riding on the sidewalk and just cross the ramp without looking and thinking...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    That's a bad driver ramming the bus into the shelter at high speed after loosing control hitting a snowbank. There's a chance that bus would have jump the curb even if the roof wasn't there.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    The concrete wall is so dull. What's worst is when they patch all over them before the line opens. Could they just paint over it? Nope, TTC doesn't know anything about aesthetics. I'm surprise ML is actually doing better. Maybe it is a good thing TTC is out of the subway building business.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    They had this map on pamphlets during the introduction campaign but they just didn't place one on the website. I suspect it doesn't look like an attractive service they are introducing with all the dotted lines on the map if they went with peak/full service distinction as most service are only...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I always think it is to mock the TTC. Our 501 Queen is way faster and better than yours. Rapid, reliable, A/C and comfort compared to the old ALRVs that broke down all the time while being roasted in a sweaty car full of crowded riders. Don't get me wrong, I loved the ALRVs.

    For the amount of money they need to build an alternative, the would better use that money to improve the current highway and expand to 4 lanes instead. CP and CN both have their own railways through Northern Ontario, so the country isn't screwed if the highway is blocked for a few days. Most...

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Considering the in most time periods, the Finch West bus do not continue east of Finch West Station and you have to get another Finch West bus, you can safely assume most people don't travel east. If this isn't the case, TTC wouldn't have split the route. The demand is also significantly higher...

    They always done it in this order
