    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Was there not a suggestion IO did not allow transit signals? Yet there they are in the manual.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    But that's kind of the point. Doug Ford and many conservatives have always derided the DRL as some excessive line for the urban elite. What you have instead is adequate capacity elevated line, but a overcapacity expensive underground line/lines in suburban areas (or just ridiculous like Eglinton...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Because Doug Ford is intent on micromanaging everything even at the city level and wants higher density than the city has zoned.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    An uncertain regulatory environment will scare off investors.

    VIA Rail

    I'll just say regardless of the indirectness of the route, connecting Toronto, Peterborough, and Ottawa on a continuous route to Montreal will ensure that this line has ridership increase potential.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    It's unclear why 153 Dufferin property is required.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    No, I definitely don't. The only way I see it changing drastically is if being elevated garners enough blowback for the provincial government to 'direct' them to make changes (and with CAQ having really no seats in Montreal that's pretty unlikely).

    Montréal Transit Developments

    But once we ARE there the conversation will likely shift and elevated rail in dense areas may no longer be as desirable.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    I was actually expecting Metrolinx to announce it being elevated along Yonge past Finch.

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    And Scarborough would be better served for it having multiple corridors of RT vs only one if it was s.ubway

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    BRT after Victoria park would likely be sufficient for the next 10-20 years

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    Cities are already trialing autonomous microtransit, it's really not far off. Tesla and many companies also have level 3 autonomous modes which can essentially drive themselves with the driver being passively aware.

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway catch-all, incl. Hybrid Design (2015-onwards)

    Don't spend too much money integrating a piece of infrastructure that will be torn down. Automation of cars and telecommuting will make the massive amount of roads we reserve for single occupancy cars unsustainable.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    I could not agree more with your sentiments.

    The saddest decision in urban planning in Canada

    Visit Winnipeg sometime. Portage Ave is much wider.

    Montréal Transit Developments

    I understand the frustration of how long it takes to plan/consult/build, but those processes have been put in place for a reason. Shortcuts become painfully evident once a project has been completed, simply look at the Canada line with small stations and disruptive construction.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    That is perfectly acceptable, however it will likely look much more severe from the west side of the rail line.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    I agree, however I think we've seen the end of cut and cover due to a desire to appease the masses.

    TTC: Yonge North Subway Extension (Finch-Richmond Hill) (Funded/Planned)

    That's before Crosstown line opens though. I expect that to change.
