    TTC: Electric and alternative fuel buses

    Has there been any discussion of which routes the 340 eBuses will run? I can't wait for these quieter and no pollution buses on the street

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    They do have a press conference for basically anything right? 🤣

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I believe they need to officially hand it over to the TTC? I assume they'd have a press conference for that.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Seems pretty much done. Anybody know whether an opening announcement will be coming soon?

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Doesn't say how fast the express trip will be. I believe the current trip is about 25 minutes? That would make the express potential less than 20 minutes which is pretty amazing.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I actually thought they'd be further ahead but it looks like they can wrap up these details pretty quickly.

    The Coming Disruption of Transport

    I did it for 8 years, most of those with a kid. It was easy with Enterprise weekend deal + car2go + zipcar. I don't know the current situation in the city but it was definitely doable. It was especially great for those months when we never needed a car and I could see my total auto expense being $0.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    Hopefully when it comes to the actual design of both of these that they'll come up with something more user friendly.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    IIRC, the preliminary design was shown with no accommodation for an LRT stop. Hopefully that will change.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    What do you see as the difference? To me it looks like the amendment has more urgency and specificity to it which I thought would be a good thing.

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    For those not paying attention to City Hall, if I understood correctly, our councillors just voted *against* prioritizing the Finch LRT extended westward. Updated > My confusion - council voted against the amendment, not the extension...

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I assume the Finch extension is depended on the airport finalizing how they are going to incorporate Line 5/6 into Pearson and they've been silent on their plans. In the meantime, it'd be nice if Line 6 was extended to Woodbine GO station.

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    I was going to say something similar. The decision where to go with Jane st long term may be best to postpone until at least a year after the Crosstown is open. I suspect a Skytrain/OL solution from Steeles to Eglinton would be the best bet as ridership from Eglinton to Bloor may drop...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I love all these improvements coming online right now. Although whether Toronto is becoming a transit city is debatable, it really feels like we are becoming a cycling city.

    how long until toronto surpasses chicago on skyscrapers?

    Population has been declining. On the flip side, # of households has gone up. Average household size has gone down dramatically.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    With all our additional bike infrastructure since the Jarvis cycle lanes were taken out I'd prefer that Jarvis now stays as is. We need some streets to be able to maintain high vehicle throughout and this will likely be the only north - south street to have it after our cycling infrastructure...

    Roads: Traffic Signals

    My first thought is that the motions to add traffic signals was originated before the cycle lanes were put in. Bloor is much calmer due to its narrowing and I'm skeptical (without looking into it) that addition lights would be needed.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes) Should be done by end of the year

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    That's all the seats on a bus right there. Maybe Brampton transit needs to run articulated only now

    Problematic Park Design - Why Some Parks Don't Work

    @Northern Light I was wondering if you have taken a look at the latest for the downtown linear parks I did the survey and while the parks look ok I am not happy with the design. Some seats and pretty art don't make...
