    TTC: Fare hike, no cuts

    Great, so assuming two rides per day for four work weeks per month, the monthly pass will cost almost exactly the same as the cash fare. I can't even articulate into words how utterly goddamn idiotic that is. In fact, I can't even bring myself to complain about how incompetent they are here...

    Transit City: Sheppard East Debate

    Let me get this straight. Being against a waste of money that will worsen service in the Sheppard corridor means everyone against the SELRT hates LRT in any form. Is that about right? Because that's all I gathered from your post. Either that or you think every part of the city is exactly the...

    Well don't I feel silly. In that case, well played.

    Transit City: Sheppard East Debate

    Is there some particular reason why you're acting like such a tremendous cock to us when we're trying to be civil in return? I wrote out a post which laid out all of my reasons for disagreeing with you and you turned around and called me pathetic. I don't even know where to go from here because...

    Transit City: Sheppard East Debate

    I'd say that your rage is far more racist that anything the pro-LRT people on this forum have in mind. After all, you're proposing that the LRT supporters are A) all white and B) all hate blacks and Asians. Both of those seem like fairly racist assumptions to me. In fact, I half suspect that the...

    Transit City: Sheppard East Debate

    It's nice to know that opposing a waste of money that will prevent any real rapid transit in the corridor for at least another fifty years makes everyone against the Sheppard LRT a "buffoon" who is "trying to ruin it for people who truly love the city". I'd love to find out what power gave you...

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    This is not so much a fantasy map as a "what could have been" map, but it fits the general idea of the thread. A few days ago, I was sitting in my chair and I thought "Huh, I wonder what Toronto would look like if the 1912 rapid transit referendum had passed." After a few days of tinkering in...

    TTC: Transit City Bus Plan

    Anyone care to tell me how adding those awnings will cost 200,000 dollars? They are awnings. Awnings are not complex and they do not require detailed design. You put them up and they keep ice from falling on people's heads. I mean, I knew the TTC likes to overspend, but 200k awnings? Is there...

    York Region Transit: Viva service thread

    What you're basically saying is that the TTC should keep all their subways going 24/7. After all, they're doing the exact same thing when they put out the Blue Night Network: replacing rapid transit with a secondary bus route during a time of night where there is less ridership. With rail...

    Toronto Transit Trivia

    Ah, damn. I wasn't sure on that one, so I made an educated guess.

    Toronto Transit Trivia

    93 Woodbridge went to Vaughan Transit. 74 Port Credit went to Mississauga Transit. 59 North Yonge went to Richmond Hill Transit. Correct?

    Star: Blvd of Broken Dreams (1929 Vimy Circle-Cambrai Ave Plan)

    He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision,--he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath-- "The horror! The horror!"

    TTC's Fancy New Technologies Thread

    Is anyone else thinking that we really don't need this on a system where the max subway headways are five minutes? It just seems like a waste of money to me.

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

    I believe the justification they used for tunnelling it the whole way was that they'd have to, get this, make a minor realignment of Interchange Way. That's right. The subway is being tunnelled under government owned land, not even using cut and cover except for the stations, all to avoid a tiny...

    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    When did I say you're stupid? I certainly understand why you're arguing, I was just poking fun at the tendency for most threads on this forum to explode into 30 or 40 page debates about things you're never going to change by yelling at each other. It's clear that both sides of this argument have...
