    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    If you read the start of this thread on UT which leans to a non Scarborough centric bias most here never expecting plaything other then subway connection. What the heck would you think the people who lived here expected? This poorly designed LRT scheme and the fight by outsiders to preserver...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    As opposed to the great RT? Who talks to people like this anyway? Jeez.

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    This is what happens when Scarborough council had to compromise on corners cuts with each plan to make a deal with outside Politicians. This crap would have never happened per-amalgamation and I would be the subway extension would have been planned along the previous corridor into Malvern...

    Durham Region Transit / Pulse

    I don't disagree with you. But you have to design this as a destination that is attractive to the lifestyle of most of the people who live here. Especially when making drastich changes. Providing common 'welcome' areas for motorists are key and shows a future intent to business owners and...

    Durham Region Transit / Pulse

    Building density NIMBYSM is everywhere including area around the Core of Toronto and even midtown. As far as transportation expansion in Durham, goes I get the concerns. You simply can't take away vehicle lanes in an area like this when migrating better public transit. They have to go back to...

    Toronto | 3355 Kingston Road | 41.2m | 11s | KAD | Core Architects

    Nice addition to that area. Get it done!

    Metrolinx: Sheppard East LRT (In Design)

    Again. There would have been 2 transfers with the LRT plan for many to reach the subway instead of 1. All Politicians lie. Even the well spoken, well dressed ones spewing their transfer LRT 'evidence based' propaganda. 99% of Scarborough politicians of all stripes want to see a plan to...

    Metrolinx: Sheppard East LRT (In Design)

    Actually this is not true whatsoever. The LRT plan introduced an additional transfer for commuters going to the short subway stub. Such a poor design concept to connect Central Scarborough. Sorry but the benefits of bus to subway is greater then bus to LRT to stubway And calling people...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    This will likely be the big debate around 2040-2050 when the Pickering extension gets a bit more serious attention. Unfortunate to see a gap and moreso it being in Malvern of course, but if we can see both subways and the EELRT delivered in close to 15 years it will be a minor detail in the...

    Metrolinx: Sheppard East LRT (In Design)

    'We deserve' Decades of having outside Politicians and their media friends controlling the transit narrative in the City. Some going beyond extremes to talk over our residents and attempting to decide which transit solutions are best for Central Scarborough. No one here deserved that nonsense...

    Cant believe we still have SELRT thread? Meh.

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    This LRT extension makes sense to connect to the Crosstown and sprucen up many long claimed 'priority areas'. 4B tho. Yikes. It does seems we double the construction costs every 5-10 years now? Possibly, but that game has lost its flare big time. Residents are fed up all over the City...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    Yes, a plan that would actually connect people and would save paying 5 times more in the future. There is a small chance it happens now that the line is with the Province extending the subway, although McCowan will still be the easy path to get approved.

    Toronto Surface Transit Network Plan

    Politicians in TO basically have their seats set in stone (minus riding removed by Ford). Bottom line Its bascailly the same faces in council here for life. The circular planning game that has gone on here for decades is simple. Announce a plan, study it to death, cut some corners, defer...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Haven't heard any updates here https://www.shn.ca/future-facilities/ If option#3 is being seriously considered to relocate the General hospital towards the Centre the Province and City have a very nice size parcel to get creative with

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    The main issue was never the transfer design itself, it was always the ridiculous placement of the transfer in terms of geographic location. Scarborough Centre is the logical transfer point in terms of allowing more central connections to pick up feeders at both Lawrence and Ellesmere and for...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    I never said you said it was a funded plan. I just found the map you posted came without context in the additional lines. That's it. Just context.

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Your map above is also misleading as the SMLRT was never funded And as wonderful as the additional transfer on Sheppard and keeping the trasnfer on RT would be, Scarborough will be far better off now that planning has been removed from hyper polarized City. Unfortunate Scarborough even had to...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Shocking....Another Downtown councilor and the usual Downtown political media operatives still trying to own the conversation of Scarborough transit And then people seems surprised there is is such large and growing political apathy in this City come election time Even when the Province steps...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Bottom line we can build the inevitable now or pay 2x-3x over in the future, the extension should have never paused for the duration it has been. Thankful to see well connected, real rapid transit going thru the heart of Scarborough that can no longer be chopped or delayed by outisde...
