    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    Especially on a forum that's all about transportation. Of all the UT forums the users here are the most likely to travel and explore the hinterlands that is Northern Ontario.

    Toronto Eaton Centre (Ongoing Renewal) | ?m | ?s | Cadillac Fairview | Zeidler

    I'm so excited to hear about Simons coming to downtown Toronto. No more riding the bus to Square One to shop. What I love about Simons as well is that they put effort into their stores and make each one feel unique. Not some carbon copy.

    VIA Rail

    the EU has seen a rise of budget high speed trains that operate like budget airlines where you’re charged for every little thing. Big difference is that it’s a sub brand of a larger railway agency. So there’s SNCF and their low cost brand Ouigo. https://www.ouigo.com/

    Dundas West/ Bloor Mobility Hub +interconnected hub network (Metrolinx)

    The Crossways is a prime example of how not to run a mall. You have the potential for tons of foottraffic and they make the entrances so hard to find and stonewall a major transit connection project.

    Ontario Northland/Northern Ontario Transportation

    Temagami will be very popular in the summer for cottagers/students heading to water access only camps and cottages. In fact, I might plan one and have my friend pick me up at the docks a short walk away. Temagami is smaller than it looks (especially in the summer) as further west is the main...

    At this rate VIA might as well purchase some narrow body planes, strip that wings then weld them to flat bed cars if they want to act like airlines so much. In fact I already have a mock up: (Spirit AeroSystems)

    It's great to see this historic train stations finding new life whilst respecting the past. Perhaps we can get an Oasis style "some might say" album cover in a few years time.

    In the Toronto West email from today they announced adding monitoring points to the subway tunnel. Great news that this connection is finally moving forward.

    Canadian Highway Fantasy Thread

    Here I am just hoping that the next phase to finish the 68km gap of Highway 69/400 is four laned. I emailed the MP but just got some word salad about repairs. Nothing about capital investments.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    So it’s a cold rainy Saturday morning here in Guelph. I’ve just boarded the 33 bus to meet the train in Mount Pleasant. It’s busy, the bus is half full and it’s 8am. Weekend train service for the whole Kitchener Line is long overdue. Funny enough, lots of other riders are complaining about...

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Where's Geoff Marshall and Miles in Transit when we need them! Agreed, having a long form video of the line is nice. Plus I know some non rail fans who like videos as background noise.

    Well then offer discounted tickets for passengers willing to shovel coal into the steam engine! What an authentic rustic train experience.

    Whoever operates the Oshawa - Lindsay - Haliburton bus service should take a page out of GOST and don't even bother with going anywhere near Toronto. Too much traffic and not enough turn around. GOST is smart because they start/end at Guelph Central Station and avoid all of the GTA traffic...

    Announcements like this make me wish beach towns on Lake Erie such as Port Dover still had rail service. I know Port Stanley does but it's not connected to the greater network. With the desire for more car free weekends escapes having train service would have been really convenient for Eclipse...

    One the Canadian and other remote western trains I don't see anything other than those caches from the 1950's. They're just too iconic.

    Hahaha probably just assumed that Montreal is an extension of Ontario. I bet the MTQ is watching the 401/A20 border frequently. That is too bad. I still think the service should terminate at Oshawa Station. There’s no need to go to downtown Toronto. Where is this new operator going to?
