    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    You can see in the screenshot below the large area next to the Subway station that remains in DND ownership. No public plans for anything yet.

    GTHA Transit Fare Integration

    Politicians too... explaining to the public in Scarborough, Finch or Vaughan "oh sorry, your TTC fare will have to double because you live a long way from downtown" would go down like a bucket of cat sick! The idea that a new fare system would be "revenue neutral" sounds okay for the transit...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    A brief reference to a future extension in the Downsview Lands - proposed Framework Plan link here i.e. It's not necessary for our development, but nothing we're doing will prevent it in future. Frankly, until the DND sells the Denison Armoury lands to a big shot developer, there's no way...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Frankly - I like the T. There's far too much single operator thinking in the GTHA - TTC ignoring GO ignoring MiWay ignoring etc etc. Stations with identical or unhelpful names, adjacent stations with different names, cross boundary fares etc. And don't get me started on TTC bus stop...

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    Given the future Western yard, they'll be a very limited window in which an extension could conceivably be developed and delivered as part of/related to the project - given that "out of service" tracks are usually built with a different level of service/speed in mind to regular tracks. It would...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    The grass tracks are looking really good - gives the above ground line a much more European tramway look compared to the concrete look of the light rail you tend to see in the US. Just need the streetscape and buildings on Eglinton to catch up :P

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Given that track isn't finished, and zero trains have run through the central section yet - we have zero idea how well the system integration and signalling is working. It's therefore too soon to say. Once that "construction" is finished - so much still needs to be installed, commissioned, then...

    Saw this on eBay and I thought y'all would appreciate seeing this 1953 Montreal Canada Rapid Mass Transportation Report

    Ontario Line : King-Bathurst Station - (North 25 s + South 25 s) - Infrastructure Ontario

    If it's anything like the Crossrail stations and their OSD - you'll want to separate the two of them 😂

    Mississauga Soccer Stadium (Canadian Premier League, other events)

    On the contrary, the Arenas built in the 905 were built in poorly located places (no transit, complicated to get to, not located near a town centre/mall, nowhere to grab a meal/drink before or after an event) and did not have key tenants like a decent hockey team! Acres of parking doesn’t...

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    Latest Metrolinx engage presentation - still lots of complaining that it's not going to be fully underground :rolleyes: Tunnel between portal and Mount Dennis - cut and cover has been ruled out.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Looks good - although the stations will look laughably small in the street scene when Eglinton turns into midrise blocks... Unless City Heritage gets their first, of course.

    Toronto | Finch West LRT and TYSSE: Finch West Station | ?m | ?s | Mosiac TG | Arup

    Annoyingly, a cantilevered building would solve the problem of the station building being in the way - but that would be very expensive and risky to build, reducing the amount of potential affordable housing. Probably would scare away a few developers from the project too. At the very least, a...

    Mississauga Soccer Stadium (Canadian Premier League, other events)

    The suggested location is awful - it needs to be close to transit at the bare minimum, and def not with acres of parking! Imo, I've often thought that an (modest) arena or stadium could be a good use to buffer the city centre from the noise and pollution of Highway 403 - and a use that could...

    Ottawa Transit Developments

    They really can't catch a break can they? The door thing is classic bathtub curve, problems like that will go away in time - but all these issues is bad luck and near catastrophe time after time!
