I've noticed a couple instances of non-standard signs in Toronto. They're in the European style of a blue circle with white symbols, instead of the North American style of a yellow diamond with black symbols.

There is general agreement that the St. Clair and Spadina "LRT" lines are not shining examples of LRT design. They are notoriously slow, largely due to poor transit priority and inherently obstructive vehicular left turns.
We were told that Transit City would be a large improvement upon that...
Since the Spadina line only has 2 stops on Spadina, many people would like the YUS to be called something else.
What should it be named?
In all cases, the line would be Yellow on maps, and be numbered route 1 internally.
