    MiWay: Service thread

    I used to make a big deal about frequencies too, but then I saw the overcrowding and artics on 39 Britannia with 25-35 minute frequencies. If higher frequencies have an effect it is very small. YRT cost recovery is under 40%. The net funding per capita of the operations is little different from...

    MiWay: Service thread

    The system that provides 1.24 million hours of service (1.97 hours per capita) and gets 29.7 million riders annually (47 riders per capita) is running circles around the system that provides 1.63 million hours of service (2.01 hours per capita) and gets 41.2 million riders annually (53 riders...

    MiWay: Service thread

    Minimizing transfer times means one transfer maximum. One north-south route and one east-west route, and no more. And that means having a complete grid. Vaughan has 4 continuous east-west corridors: Major Mackenzie, Rutherford, Highway 7, Steeles. And Steeles has no YRT service. That means...

    MiWay: Service thread

    Seriously, Drum, I think you complain way too much about the service. The 50% cost recovery ratio of Mississauga is very typical. It suggests typical service level relative to the ridership. The ridership per capita has increased from 40 to 53 in the past 15 years. That is 32% increase. With 53...

    Former President Donald Trump's United States of America

    Trump is under threat of impeachment. Democrats have control of the House. He no longer has free rein. That is preferable to Hillary having all control. If it was Bernie it would be a different story. But Democrats chose Hillary and I am glad they got punished for it. If I would have done the...

    Add "Eye Roll" to Reactions

    Again, are you actually going to address what people said instead of just responding with your usual contempt and scorn? Either address people's arguments or shut the fuck up, simple as that. Same goes for Transportfan and Admiral Beez.

    Add "Eye Roll" to Reactions

    What exactly was on point? A guy makes a joke criticizing a politician, and somehow that inspires another forumer to lash out at all left-wing forumers (and of course you and Admiral Beez gives him a thumbs up for it). Thread about Canadian federal election becomes derailed by a post lashing out...

    Chick-fil-A

    If you have no argument against what I said, then you should just shut up. Churches outnumber mosques by huge margin in the UK and have had a vastly greater influence on laws discriminating against gays in the UK but somehow you guys single out the mosques. It says all that that needs to said...

    Chick-fil-A

    People in UK aren't protesting at anti-LGBT churches either. Churches and mosques are treated equal, no double standard. The only double standard is from Admiral Beez singling out the mosques only.

    Should cities start blocking urban sprawl?

    Toronto might be the only urban area in North America which has fewer high rise buildings in the pre-war inner city than in the post-war suburbs surrounding it. Around 1300 high-rises in Old Toronto, 60 in York, and 50 in East York compared to 400 high-rises in North York, 250 in Scarborough...

    Should cities start blocking urban sprawl?

    Even by US standards, Atlanta is a very extreme example of sprawl, despite its subway system. Oklahoma City has practically no transit (the entire metropolitan area has lower ridership than Oakville Transit) yet its sprawl is much more compact than Atlanta's. I think if you guys Google Streets...

    Should cities start blocking urban sprawl?

    I don't think many people realize just how different US and Canada are in terms of sprawl and car dependence. If you compare Toronto proper to Chicago proper, the difference in transit ridership is 3 times. But if you compare Mississauga or Brampton to Naperville or Schaumburg, the difference in...

    Former President Donald Trump's United States of America

    Obvious thugs are so obvious that they got locked up. They are no longer a threat to me, or to anyone else. That's Trump. Clinton and Biden are like the ones who don't get locked up, they remain hidden, so they can, and they will, stab you in the back.

    Grumpy Middle-Aged Man on Snowflake Culture

    Sounds to me like you are the one who is perpetually offended. You are seriously whining about losing your freedom and being persecuted or something. I just think it's hilarious. Somehow you have the nerve to criticized other people are being too safe and sensitive. You are one who is being a...

    Should cities start blocking urban sprawl?

    Mississauga has 2 times the buses, 8 times the transit operating budget, and 8 times the transit ridership of Greater Richmond despite having only 2/3 of the population (and being almost entirely post-war and suburban). And that's only MiWay, not including any GO buses or trains. Keep that in...

    The seemingly terminal decline of Tim Hortons

    Tim Horton's is garbage even compared to Country Style and Krispy Kreme, let alone any "fancy" place. I loved their doughnuts as a kid but now it's all pre-frozen and all of the icing melts after a few hours so I had to look elsewhere. Even as someone who only eats doughnuts like once or twice a...
