    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    fair enough if that is the plan. The information on EglintonToday's web portal and the notice I received made no mention of it so I was concerned, but if it's a matter of creating an interim solution that will be upgraded over time that would make sense.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Maybe I'm mis-remembering, but didn't the original Eglinton Connects anticipate a rebuild of the street with cycle tracks in the boulevard? I would be able to confirm but as is typical with the city they just remove all the previous documents from public access and essentially just say a study...

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    Pedestrians will still need to cross the road. Which means lights will have to change cycles so capacity would be hampered as roadway volume increases. Any form of mobility has a maximum theoretical capacity. We will still be asking the same questions, and having the same concerns about...

    I used to work in the area and stopped by here quite a bit. Hard to believe it's been this long.

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

    What's been going on with the Gateway lands around Langstaff? Also between 28:30 and 30:00 of the video was painful...for the VP of the subway project and technical expert. I guess you don't need to know why you're designing a subway

    TTC: Easier Access Phase III

    How does this take three years to complete? Is it because it's being completed are really small intervals to reduce costs?

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    Not to mention....we may have emerging technologies and other urban/planning changes that may change how the city functions in 50 years. Planing for further than 20 or 30 years is basically like throwing darts at a board.

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

    It really is a shame that we're so focused, in Toronto, on building entire lines in one go rather than allowing things to be gradually built over time. I wonder if it's because of how our approvals process for TPAPs and EAs function whereby you essentially have to have a fairly detailed idea on...

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    There was a point when this would have been true. Unfortunately, ever since Rob Ford became Mayor, they've been solely focused on "gotcha" journalism and are more concerned about stirring the pot than actually providing the facts sot hat the reader can make their own decisions. Can't really...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    As someone who works directly on Spadina and lives on the Spadina Subway line, I will always go to King and take the King Streetcar rather than taking the Spadina streetcar. I'm convinced that the Spadina streetcar is my least favourite line in the city that doesn't particularly do anything...

    I guess you need to know an estimated cost of something before committing funding for it. At this stage the range in how much it could cost is too wide.

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    People are so upset with Ford that no matter what he does you'll get people upset with him. This is combined with the Toronto Star's constant pursuit of a "Gotcha" moment. We had no committed funding for the DRL all the way to Eglinton and as far west as Exhibition. It was just going to be...

    Toronto | Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design) | ?m | ?s

    People are glossing over the fact that the Ontario Line, although only sharing 3Km with the previous DRL, will actually be using the same alignment through the most complex part of the route (Downtown Toronto) where the stiffest engineering challenges exist. Using the existing rail corridor...

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    Because your phone can receive the payment credentials directly onto your phone from the PRESTO server, whereas a PRESTO card relies on the machines on the buses and at the stations to be updated so that they know that your card has had a top up. It's why when you do a top-up at Union station...

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

    With all due respect, I understand what you're trying to say, but many drivers that park at Finch Station don't use Yonge Street to get there. To distill future or even existing numbers based on Bus Ridership and vehicles along Yonge Proper doesn't give the full picture. The catchment at Finch...

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

    It would be nice if you linked to some data or studies to back this up beyond just stating 100 passengers per hour outside of the peak for the corridor which is absurd ( I hope you misspelled and meant 1,000 at least). The Yonge-Subway Extension Benefits Case produced by SDG in 2013 identifies...

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

    There will be a storage facility underground for trains north of Richmond Hill Centre Station + when they did the studies for the Yonge Extension they also looked at whether a future extension to 16th avenue would be feasible and that's why the line is dotted, although nothing is planned for the...

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

    You're being rude and overly confrontational, the likes I haven't seen from someone on this forum in a long time. Beyond this it sounds like you are ill-informed about what is going on north of Steeles where tremendous growth is occurring and high-rises have been built despite a lack of funding...

    TTC: Sheppard Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Since when did lines all focused on providing north-south travel ever get confused with providing east-west travel in the north of Toronto? It's almost as if (gasp) the busiest highway in the world is busy because people go east-west in Toronto as well as north-south.
