    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Id have been happy if go trips within toronto were treated like a ttc express route. Which i belive the fare is double the normal ttc. So imagine paying ~$6 to travel from long branch to union and being able to transfer onto the subway...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    I didnt forget about the island. Ytz is the island airport. And i didn't come up with the 60 km metric out of thin air either, that was the furthest airport from LAX in Micheal's google map (ontario). Yes travel time plays as much of a role in how convenient people will see an airport as if...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Downsview, Oshawa, and Buttonville don't have any scheduled air services. Buttonville has been set to be shut down for years and Downsview is only used by Bombardier. Why would you include 3 airports that do not have passenger service?

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    Everyone, while I don't have the same enthusiasm as Mark does for Pickering. Just look at the distances of those airports from the main airport: LA: - BUR 29 KM - LGB 27 KM - SNA 48 KM - ONT 54 KM TOR: - HAM 61 KM - YTZ 19 KM Nothing else is within 60 Km of YYZ. LA is not an example for...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Hahahahah. The Lakeshore E graphic is even worse, it outright lies. They claim there is (or will be) service every 30 mins from Oshawa to Union serving all stops in between. Yet there is a 1 hr gap in the morning from 6:44 to 7:33 where trains go Express after Pickering and a 1.5 (!) hr gap...

    Pickering Airport (Transport Canada/GTAA, Proposed)

    New York, Chicago, Washington DC. Toronto is the 4'th largest city in North America. Among the 5 largest North American cities, only Mexico City, LA and Toronto are served by a single international airport that in the top 40 NA airports by passenger traffic. Sooo, not exactly a knock on...

    Peterborough Area and Highway 7 Corridor studies

    Many communities wanted to keep the number in their road name as much as possible (see Peel regional road #107) to avoid disruption. You could get a proposal like Vaughan's Avenue 7 idea. Also we have duplication in street names as well not just numbers (King, and Queen, John st exist in...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    And yet Ford promised different leadership from what was painted as a corrupt Liberal government from Gas Plants, to Oranje, to wind turbines and green energy, to ehealth, etc, etc. If Ford's government can't be transparent in it's decision making less than one year into their term, than how...

    The one at the north end is closing down no? I mean hell. We have a McCafe on the York Concourse level and a full feldged McDonalds on the Food court level. So is it unusual to have a Timmies at either end of the station?

    But what would the benefit be for any airline to offer that? They would need to ensure that passengers and luggage can get from Pearson to Union reliably or vice versa. For all that the UP Express has been look at what has happened when there has been delays. Now imagine someone checking in...

    Toronto | Pearson Transit Hub | ?m | ?s | GTAA

    There's at least one story every few years about some fool who winds up in Sydney NS instead of Sydney AU. Yes, duplicate names shouldn't be a problem for a vast majority of the travelling public.

    Better do it before Doug Ford cancels the escalators. Union station elites already have enough escalators!

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Take a look at ridership #'s at Pickering/Ajax/Whitby and compare to the number of available parking spaces. It's pretty much a 1:1 ratio, therefore ridership growth is constrained by available parking. So if there were a GO route through Northern Durham, rather than cannibalizing the existing...

    Because pearson has decided to keep its iata (yyz) and its icao (cyyz) codes as similar as possible. Unlike Tokyo Haneda (HND vs RJTT) or Bejing Capital (PEK vs ZBAA). Note that the "C" in the icao codes is a country specific code identifying all airports in Canada. See here for icao vs iata...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    I like to see the numbers on investment into km lanes of highway built/expanded vs mass transit in the GTAH over the past 40 years. I dont think mass transit will come anywhere close to highway investment
