    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    yeah, an attempt to save face on the Smarttrack campaign promise. they missed the part where fare integration might have justified the cost. would have much preferred a Sydney Metro, Montreal REM, Elizabeth Line type project if Toronto is paying for all these stations though.

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    was a reason given for why Toronto is paying for it?

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    haha well Pioneer village south entrance is south of Steeles Ave, which is technically Toronto (North York). I don't know I kind of feel like the municipality that paid for it and continues to pay for maintaining it should be the one to claim it. points for creativity though.

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    technically Vaughan has 2 stops and Scarborough has 3. Victoria Park is in Scarborough and Pioneer Village is in North York. Scarborough will add 3 more stations with the SSE. Vaughan/Markham will add 2 more stations with the YNSE. Richmond Hill and North York will both get 2 new stations as...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    everyone has biases to some degree. I am very much pro-Toronto, but that doesn't change the fact that all boroughs & the 905 are underserved by transit. here is a list of kilometres of subway/metro (excluding Line 5's surface rail & Line 6 ) as per your request, once all planned projects are...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    this would be more relevant if GO and the TTC had fare integration. hopefully that happens one day. I'm not pro any particular borough, but just as an interesting thought here's how many stations each borough will eventually have. this includes existing and planned as of now. Scarborough is...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    this is actually a really nice proposal. Toronto definitely needs many more mid rise buildings like this to help densify the core.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    how's about this half-baked idea? use Sheppard to branch/interline both Line 1 & 2.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    yeah it's been proposed before and many times throughout this thread.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    branching Line 2 probably makes more sense than branching Line 1 especially on the Yonge street segment, even though the wye already exists at Yonge & Sheppard. Yonge needs as much capacity as possible since it's the backbone of the entire network. theoretically i could see Line 2 having one...

    Ontario Line Extension West of Ontario Place (Speculation)

    i found it on r/toronto. see the link below. credit goes to u/jamaps for creating it.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    yeah i agree with most of this, but any system can definitely just close stations whether temporarily or permanently, while still running a through service. of course they can just close them. whether it's worth it to or not is a different question worth debating, but any station can be closed...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    i already addressed this before i saw your post, but those pockets you describe are the only place they can justify building stations. Line 4 would be more successful as an express line, eliminating the three stations in between Yonge and Don Mills and routing all buses to those major hubs. bus...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    well hopefully that helps with attracting more ridership. as of now some of the lowest ridership numbers come from stations located on Line 3, Line 4 and the Vaughn extension. typically these extensions can only be justified if they are a well connected regional hub. it's more the stations in...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    honestly the subway should have never been extended to those places. it's called buying votes. the core of the city will forever subsidize these extensions. you see the part of the map where it's red in every direction? that's the only place where subways/metros could theoretically justify...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    sure, but that's not what we are talking about. we're talking about going further east and north to Markham and Pickering.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    well exactly a loop is a loop (i.e. one continuous line, just like Line 1). the advantage is that we'd never waste $ building north or east in low density suburbia. they can have trains short-turn at STC or Kipling, so that only half the trains go to Sheppard making the full loop. not sure if...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    and if my aunt were my uncle. Line 4 uses Toronto gauge. I don't see a light metro being anything other than standard.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    not that i disagree with you, but i think it's even less likely they convert Line 4 to light metro or light rail. i've heard in the past that it would be > than a billion just to do so. that's why it probably makes more sense to just combine/loop Line 4 with Line 2. that way this is never a...
