    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I understand your points. I had actually called the Go Transit Safety line itself - not just Metrolinx customer service. And when the train passed about 10 minutes later, with people still on the tracks, it appeared to me to be going at the normal speed for this time/area, with no horns blaring...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    In light of today's news release from Metrolinx regarding rail safety, on April 28 I reported the incident below to the Go Transit safety line while it was happening. I was kept on hold briefly, and after gathering details the agent said "I'll try to get someone out there". I assumed they'd hold...

    Toronto Ontario Line: Corktown Station | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | HDR

    I was pretty sad being forced to sell my Niagara Street condo due to divorce, as I would lose my views of the Exhibition Station and King/Bathurst Station construction sites, the nearby truss bridge, rail and streetcar lines, the CN Tower (mostly the tip), slivers of the lake and even the...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    It is only a 10 minute walk from River City to the future stop at King and Parliament Streets, and the 504 is accessible as well. Plus, there's a bus route from River City through the Canary District to Union Station.

    I remember people mentioning Cinnabon many years ago… good news:

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I’m actually a fan of the overall plan. If built it will tunnel ~100m from my home, provide a nearby station and improve my commute. I believe the plan delivers a lot of benefits to many neighborhoods. but I had to comment on what to me was a glaring oversight and with a dose of levity intended.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    "Now approaching Science Centre station. Do not exit at this station for The Science Centre". Seems like a calamity for families with children and disabled people who will then need to travel over 400 meters to The Science Centre, when the Flemingdon Park station is on The Science Centre...

    Toronto Spadina Subway Extension Emergency Exits | ?m | 1s | TTC | IBI Group

    Maybe you've stated the reason stickers aren't practical... people would just pull them off, leaving a mess of inconsistent and inaccurate maps.

    Stackt Container Market (28 Bathurst St, future park)

    Council passed the motion and we have new parkland! I'm very happy for selfish reasons (my view), but also because the neighbourhood really is under intense development pressure and this is very economical, needed park space for thousands of new residents of developments already under...

    Toronto Manulife Centre Podium and Streetscape Renewal | 9.75m | 2s | Manulife Real Estate | MdeAS Architects

    I wonder if they will spend any of this redevelopment money to fix the long standing issue of the parking lot ticket spitter dispensing painful electrical shocks to unsuspecting patrons. Management at Manulife Centre knows of this problem and blames static electricity buildup on the ramp.

    Toronto Minto Westside | 68.88m | 20s | Minto Group | Wallman Architects

    The crane is now up. That was fast!

    Roads: Bathurst Street Bridge

    One of these days I'd like to get a photo of a GO Train, a new streetcar on the bridge, a red truck on the Gardiner, and a Porter plane departing to the east, but for now this cameraphone shot of the bridge in its rapidly changing neighbourhood...

    Toronto Queens Quay & Water's Edge Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Waterfront Toronto

    I've been cycling the MGT along QQ a few times a week recreationally and I don't believe it's nearly as problematic as some people state. It's a shared trail and space and we would all be well advised to remember that. It is not the place to cycle if you are feeling anti social or in a hurry...

    Toronto Pearson International Airport

    Plus, if it's working, a very cool high speed moving sidewalk that triples in speed along its midsection. After security if you have the choice of two moving sidewalks along the pier, select the one on your right. Walk as it speeds you along and you'll feel wind in your hair. It's my favourite...

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    When the construction workers were on site, even in daylight, they sure weren't betting their lives only on drivers' vision. They had huge illuminated signage helping to inform drivers, pylons, a huge truck parked 'upstream' as a barrier, etc.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    No temporary lights. No permanent lights. The permanent installation is missing the yellow/black striped hazard signs, possibly electrical connections, etc. The city has created this very dangerous situation by not keeping the temporary lighting in place.

    Another collision, this one clearly more serious.
