    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    To be fair, the Metrolinx blog post did include a YouTube video explaining the process. This was not included in the Mass Transit post.

    While although battery and hydrogen technology have come a long way, they haven't been tested or run on the large scale that GO is electrifying.

    Toronto | Long Branch Station Redevelopment | 6m | 1s | Metrolinx | Stantec

    At least the bus access to the station at St Clair will be fairly decent. Agreed about Long Branch, judging by the plans here, they'll add a crosswalk and some pedestrian infrastructure between the loop and station building.
