    Transit Ridership Statistics & Tracking

    The mega circle is actually for Dixie GO, not Cooksville. It took me a while to catch that.

    Toronto | Pearson Transit Hub | ?m | ?s | GTAA

    Interesting, thanks for providing this information. Like Woodbrige_Heights mentioned, I would've thought the focus would be on alleviating congestion at T1, rather than moving some Sunwing and Air Transat operations to the IFT. Regarding remote stands, I've noticed that LH494/5 has been...

    London Rapid Transit (In-Design)

    It would be nice to see Down Shift provide some sources, particularly their bullet points that speak to Kitchener-Waterloo and their supposed lawsuits and failing downtown/uptown cores...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Just a random question: does anyone know why the "newer" platform at Malton GO Station is never used? There's a "Platform Closed" sign on the door leading up from the tunnel beneath the tracks.

    Politics: Tim Hudak's Plan for Ontario if he becomes Premier

    Michael Chong for PC leader. I could support a guy like him.

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    I have a hard time believing that a tanking HSR line connecting London-KW-Pearson-Union would be saved by adding a station in Brampton.

    GO Transit: Union Station Shed Replacement & Track Upgrades (Zeidler)

    I think that satellite terminals with subway access will be the solution to Toronto's regional rail problems.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    How much of an impact will electrification have on the number of crews required to operate 15 minute service on the Lakeshore Line (considering electric locomotives/EMUs present travel time savings due to faster acceleration/any other travel speed increases as a result of track upgrades)?

    Cycling: Segregated Bike Lanes on Eglinton

    Transportation consulting firms have more scientific ways of counting cyclists. I think the economic, environmental, health and social impacts of implementing cycle lanes on Eglinton aren't being considered. Everyone is focused solely on cycle lanes increasing auto travel times, that no one...

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    Here's hoping we can get a provincial election out of the way and get moving with high speed rail investments and GO electrification.

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    I agree with you about the BD subway issue. The political nature of urban/transportation planning is the shittiest part of the job, as you'll propose something based on the facts, only to have that proposal recreated by a politician looking to score points. I don't agree with using Brampton's...

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    Disclaimer: I regularly take the GO train from Kitchener to Brampton GO, so I am not anti-Brampton. I hope that whichever firm(s) end up doing the various studies on this line will be able to decipher the types of ridership originating/terminating in each of the markets. If Brampton's market is...

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    I think this is fairly accurate. There has been a shift away from Waterloo and into Kitchener for some tech companies, but the more established firms like OpenText and BlackBerry remain in Waterloo. On that note, Google and Desire2Learn (not the smallest players on the block) are both expanding...

    High Speed Rail: London - Kitchener-Waterloo - Pearson Airport - Toronto

    I see this "announcement" as being the precursor to GO/MX purchasing the Guelph Subdivision in its entirety, allowing them to upgrade the tracks and possibly double track the corridor. This may not necessarily result in true high speed rail, but it should cut travel times along the entire...

    2014 Municipal Election: Toronto Mayoral Race

    Hopefully Ford continues to attack Soknacki in debates. IMO, Soknacki getting attacked by Ford is a good thing for his name recognition. If Ford's against it, it must be good! haha
