    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    This is not entirely up to date. A lot of the people on suburban TTC buses are commuting to Amazon and similar warehouse jobs. The load distribution on the 416 bus system in 2024 is different from what it was in 2019 As much as the banks are trying to kill WFH to save their office real estate...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    The newly fenced off demolition area around Pape station is pretty jarring. Taking out a block on the Danforth, taking out a block on Eaton, taking out a block on Lipton, and also taking out a block on Gertrude. It's going to be a strange void for the next decade-ish. I assume there's some kind...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Recreational cyclists looking to do a chill century on a quiet country road take the Niagara train. Joe job cyclists looking to make minimum wage delivering food take the Kitchener train. Well, both can take both, but in different proportions and at different times

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    Would that be for a hypothetical Durham Region BRT connection, maybe?

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    The city and Waterfront Toronto both have a plan to eventually connect Church and Cooper. The city's plan is for a 20m width with no streetcar ROW - -

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    You would need to get that tunnel deep enough to pass underneath Union subway station somehow. It's not cheaper than expanding the loop at the current elevation

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    Pretty sure the Ford government has banned the city from levying any new development charges

    Roadside Begging

    I would hope so. Minimum wage is $132.40 for a day's work. $100 is below minimum wage

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    I think nominal dollars is projecting inflation into the future and what the cost would be after projected future inflation in the year the expense will be incurred

    General cycling issues (Is Toronto bike friendly?)

    I took an e-bikeshare from Donlands to Kipling last week. The new lanes are great. I hope the city fixes the awkwards spots soon (the interminable Rosedale pedestrian underpass construction, the Avenue-Spadina street rebuild, the gap between Islington and Kipling) The entire lane by Jane was...

    Barrie Collingwood Railway (BCRY)

    These mansions in Barrie look like they are in the way, as might be the more modest homes along Georgina Dr

    Alexander The Great Parkette Revitalization (Greektown BIA, FFLA)

    Certainly at least two of the cars in the first picture are parked illegally, so widening the sidewalks would discourage the illegal parking

    407 Transitway

    Replacing Highway 7 Viva with something that runs in the 407 corridor would be like replacing the Sheppard subway with something that runs in the 401 corridor. They are not walking distance from each other On the other hand, if you run a hypothetical Ontario line extension along Highway 7, you...

    East Don Trail Project

    The Flemingdon Golf Course section is vital, but I think the question may have been more about the section from Bermondsey to Eglinton towards the Meadoway

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Arguably the newly realigned mouth of the Don River fixes the Don valley flooding problems by allowing a much greater outflow into the harbour. I'm not sure if Metrolinx is factoring that into its Richmond Hill line plans, or if it's only considering elevation changes to the line as an...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    The other other option is to close a lane or three on University, which was proposed by Public Work in 2020

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    The specific project that Metrolinx choosing to aggressively re-grade the valley messes up is the Don River Valley Park: - - I've been following the park for a long time and I think it has a lot of...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I've spent decades reading threads on this forum about how Kennedy station is bad because people have to take several escalators to get from SRT to the Bloor-Danforth subway. People hated those escalators so much they got the province to spend many billions to extend the subway. Escalator...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Yonge subway is the busiest, highest capacity subway line in North America. For Yonge line to have higher capacity, it would need four tracks rather than two. Things can't operate at 100% capacity for sustained periods. You need unused capacity -- clear space on trains -- in order for people...

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    Branches halve frequency. Branching UPX means that you'd have twice as much UPX service at the Bloor GO stop than at Union GO I'm not clear on why we would want to interline Ontario Line and UPX. Is it to better serve people going from Riverdale to Pearson?
