    Richmond Hill Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    There are buildings like that going up all over the city. If that's all it takes to justify a subway then Sheppard is way down on the priority list.

    Yeah but the pricetag for new subway constructon + reconfiguring YUS would be way more massive than the pricetag for just subway construction. The existing subway isn't perfect but it works. Why spend our limited resources trying to fix what isn't broken?

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Underground streetcars, actually. And at the time they didn't think of it as being for "several decades" in the future. There were already plans for a streetcar subway from Keele to Broadview before the viaduct was even built.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Because if you didn't connect at Greenwood you have to build a wye at Pape, and that would be much more expensive and disruptive.

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Steve has talked about the Weston corridor many times. His stance is that a converted UPX would be the most logical place to put the western leg of the Downtown Relief Line. This doesn't mean literally converting the line to subway technology (that is definitely impossible) but rather...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Steve Munro got an explanation from them a couple of months ago.

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    No, but they've left space for a future station in the design. Wouldn't really make sense to spend money roughing in a station when the subway line hasn't even been planned yet.

    Bathurst Streetcar to Eglinton?

    No room for a bus loop at Eglinton, let alone a streetcar loop.

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    http://www.thestar.com/news/queenspark/2013/11/07/liberals_to_force_provincial_government_to_have_longterm_infrastructure_plans.html John Michael McGrath is saying on twitter that the province is going to move ahead with extending the Eglinton LRT to Pearson...

    A Relief Line fantasy map Colours and lines are based on the new wayfinding standards. Orange 5 for Eglinton, Silver 6 for Sheppard East, Mint Green 7 for Finch. The SRT's Blue 3 will probably be freed up by the time any Relief Line goes into service, so it can be reassigned to the repurposed...

    TTC Cartography, Signage, and Wayfinding

    http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2013/October_23/Reports/New_Wayfinding_Standards_Presentation.pdf I really like a lot of the stuff in here. That Frequency-based Ride Guide looks especially good.

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    I made a slightly better version of the schematic map I made a couple of weeks ago. One version for if the council votes for the subway and Blue #3 gets freed up for Eglinton: And in the unlikely event that the LRT somehow survives tomorrow's meeting, here's a map where Eglinton gets...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    Oh, I absolutely agree. I'm just saying we need to be realistic when we talk about what's motivating people.

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    You are imagining an alternate history here. Ford has never so much as said the word transfer. All he cares about is being able to say he built a subway. When he was campaigning his transit plan had no Eglinton line and the SRT converted to subway (NOT an extension of Bloor-Danforth but a new...

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    Three maps of what the rapid transit network might look like once (if?) the currently planned projects are completed. The first version has the original Scarborough LRT, the second has Council's subway, and the third has the province's subway.

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    Don't fool yourselves. Stintz knows exactly what a subway is. But this has never been a debate over transit technology. It's a debate over the word subway. That's a word that wins elections and Stintz would like very much to deny it to her opponents and hoard it for herself. The shameful thing...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    Uh they did meet his concerns, remember? They put Finch and Sheppard on hold as soon as Ford was elected and dumped all their money into a continuous grade-separated LRT along Eglinton and the SRT alignment, and the new changes threw off the previous construction timelines. It was changing plans...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    My worry is that every year of delay means several new opportunities for derailment. Think of how many transit debates we've had in the couple of years since Ford became mayor. The original Transit City plan got delayed "for a few years", and now it barely even exists. I mean if the provincial...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    I'm sorry but this attitude right here is everything that's wrong with transit planning in Toronto. We have a fully-approved, fully-funded LRT plan for Eglinton already. Now is the time to build that plan, not to replace it with a new plan that will require new funding and new approvals and lead...
