    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    I see a lot of wasted space. The headings can stay the same, but the numbers need to be bigger.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    "Station design Q: Will there be indoor or outdoor retail outdoor retail and food outlets? A: Exhibition station has a large concourse planned as an amenity for both the general public and transit users. Other stations have minimal provision for retail, although this could be included in future...

    Looks like the snowbird's been grounded. :( (Cute that the trains are named)

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I lost track of when MTO started giving distance with one decimal place.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Those two videos took place at what looks like airports. Without additional context, it's not known where those escalator connects to. I'd think passenger volume/pattern is also different from that of public transit system.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Of course there is outlier to this standpoint. Hong Kong runs the majority of its routes with double deckers. There has to be a reason they aren't going with articulated vehicles on new purchases.

    Toronto | 635 Sheppard East | 41.96m | 11s | AC Development | Icon

    Those are/will be the final SFHs on that stretch of Sheppard (Bayview to Bessarion).

    I know of people who think zipper merge equates to cutting in line.

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Ontario Line will relieve the line 1 bound load (or reverse, for afternoon rush), but may also draw people from line 1 or anywhere east of the terminus.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    That garage at Cooksville is certainly the most prominent building in the neighbourhood, especially at night. Friend of mine thought it was some mega shopping centre/entertainment complex.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I don't think gates can be used here regardless. Crosstown tracks are built as part of the street - trains follow same speed limit. If we use Calgary C-Train as example (which does have gates), their tracks are built as regular rail lines in between two roadways. Their downtown section...

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Or maybe pay-the-difference - TTC fare counts as a "credit" towards a GO fare, and vice versa.

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Perhaps bus stops are be placed in front of the entrances, so everything will have to be at the same level.

    And Japan has these melodies before each announcement on their high speed trains.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Not sure if I missed it in one of the pages here, but looks like potential GO service to London was mentioned back in early last year.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Too cheap, to acquire the appropriate system to withstand moderate wind gusts. Too chicken out, would shut down the gondola/aerial tram whenever wind gust hits 50km/h (which is quite common). But as AoD has pointed out, the main issue will be it interfering with airport operation.

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Does gondola shut down at certain wind speed? Not sure if Toronto is consider a windy city.

    Roads: Traffic Signals

    That green forward arrow preceding the regular green works great with the advance pedestrian phase. They should bring that in Toronto. It allows through traffic to move instead of doing the pointless wait (especially true for non-core areas). Montreal's implementation still confuses...

    Maybe something like the Pearson LINK train.
