    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I am aware, as I was making a joke 🤪

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Actually, the reporter contacted Metrolinx for comment and they don't seem to agree with your reasoning. They don't seem to disagree with it either, though :)

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I don't see anything wrong with this article. They are reporting the possible implication of a statement in an official document, not hearsay. The key words in the headline are 'hints' and 'could'.

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    P3 contracts also allow a government to defer costs to a later date and by the time the bill comes due there could be a new government in charge or we could all be dead etc.

    I believe there is a famous Donald Rumsfeld quote about these sorts of situations

    Yorkdale Subway Station Easier Access (Arc En Ciel Reinstallation)

    Has there been any further forward progress on this? It's featured in the new Junior Boys video, which reminded me of this project.

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I must take a moment to point out that the Ontario line currently does not exist.

    Bloor-Yonge Station Capacity Enhancement

    I understand there is no funding for it but seeing renderings of this project without platform screen doors will always be a bit of a letdown, in my opinion.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I think any worries regarding the gentrification of Jane and Finch are premature, to say the least

    TTC: Automatic Train Control and Subway Platform Screen Doors

    One can understand the legal rationale for an argument while also finding it distasteful.

    TTC: Automatic Train Control and Subway Platform Screen Doors

    I am interested to see if litigation will finally push the TTC et al. to make some progress on this. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/ttc-lawsuit-woman-pushed-subway-tracks-1.6452486

    YRT/Viva Construction Thread (Rapidways, Terminals)

    I don't think that was likely the approach taken by the applicable parties but it is the reality of the built form from my point of view. Another reality is that there was no way that Highway 7 would ever lose a single automobile lane in the reinvisioning of the road. Those who planned the...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The 196B only had one stop between Sheppard West and Sheppard-Yonge (Bathurst)

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Yes, I know, but they would only run one branch if there was insufficient demand between York University and Sheppard-Yonge.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I believe there is some degree of demand as the TTC used to run a branch of the York University Rocket to Sheppard-Yonge (196B) and in my recollection it was always pretty full from end to end when I would take it. I understand that this is simply anecdotal and that the 196 only operated during...
