    TTC: Jane LRT

    Yes, most people are going Downtown. Not a majority, but most. And yes, most of the growth in terms of employment in total numbers is also Downtown. The YorkU extension, Line 5 Eglinton, Line 7 Finch West, Scarborough Subway, and the Yonge extension will all increase the burden on already...

    TTC: Jane LRT

    I understand why you might have it going to Eg West Station then back to Dufferin but I think in this scenario riders can simply transfer at Line 5, or Caledonia or Mount Dennis.. A Jane > Eglinton > Dufferin LRT would cross 2 GO lines where riders can get express service downtown or to the...

    TTC: Jane LRT

    Jane LRT Steeles > Weston Road (Mt Dennis) > Eglinton (Line 5, interlined) > Dufferin > Exhibition > Bremner > Union Think of the ridership on such a line. Honestly, I get not every line has to go downtown. But if there's a city that needs more transit going in to Downtown, it's Toronto.

    TTC: Jane LRT

    For what? Just for fun? Some long time members giving some insanely absurd suggestions.

    TTC: Jane LRT

    I'm confused. So you think a good route would be from Steeles and Jane to Long Branch GO because 'not everyone wants to go downtown.' So let's just route the LRT random places to piss people off?

    TTC: Jane LRT

    Would be nice to see Jane LRT goes east along Eglinton from Mount Dennis (interlined with Line 5) then south along Dufferin to Exhibition.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    LOL Mississauga? This joke just keeps getting worse and worse.

    Eglinton West LRT | Metrolinx

    It's incredible how much more density exists on Eglinton east of Kennedy compared with this stretch. I don't see the value in connecting Line 5 to Pearson when travellers could just transfer at Mount Dennis from the UPX to head Midtown. I think it's funny that Weston had to fight for a stop on...

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT: Eglinton Station | ?m | 1s | Metrolinx | NORR

    Most of the construction unions in the city are well known in racialized communities to be incredibly and openly racist. Literally know of first hand accounts of bananas being thrown at personal friends, etc. Due process isn't followed, so with any complaint job security is at risk...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Ummmmm 700m per km, can we not find a way to reduce the costs further? Is this a joke? I'm finding it hard to believe that we are doing all we can to reduce the costs on these lines. What's happening with the Federal Gov't infrastructure Bank? Can we not ask China (nicely this time) to help...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    Fun fact, Toronto never wanted the subway on Bloor.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    I'm always shocked at the lack of development along the Danforth and Bloor West, while certain areas far from RT like Humber Bay Shores are booming. The nature of transit in this city is very much from feeder routes especially in the suburbs. Are there any statistics detailing how many transit...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    It feels weird arguing that Sheppard should in fact be extended east as a subway when I spent years arguing the opposite. I don't see how connecting five heavy rail lines to one another in a transit starved, fast growing environment such as the GTA would result in "well under subway level...

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    A Sheppard Extension would connect Line 2 at McCowan, GO at Agincourt, Ontario Line at Don Mills, Line 1 Yonge, and potentially Line 1 University in a westward extension...Connecting Scarborough with York University and Yorkdale with a quick transfer. This line would not be underused. I...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Those are exceptions when referring to “streetcar service.” The context is also very dissimilar, urban small blocks vs suburban larger blocks. Line 5 is also expected to operate with full transit priority and much larger trains.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    it’s also worth noting that the last rapid transit line in the city that was fully funded by the province took the same approach of a one size fits all for the stations. Line 2 - Bloor Danforth.

    SmartTrack (Proposed)

    Adding new stops to GO lines isn't a new idea. It's just that the province would repeat over and over that GO is for the (905) and the Subway for the (416). The current political atmosphere wasn't changed by Tory's Smarttrack, either. It was changed the year prior when Wynne was elected with a...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I stated that there was room for improvement. However this still doesn't negate the fact that there are cultural institutions in this neighbourhood that have been in place for the last half century. Whether you chose to engage them or not. Not saying I'm opposed to change. What I was saying is...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    This is laughable. Now, I'm not saying there isn't room for improvement. But common, we have enough dried up areas in this city culturally, I'm hoping not to add this to the list.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    I mean... We may lose generations of culturally diverse businesses in lieu of RBCs and A&Ws with no soul or cultural value. That would be tons worse than what we have now on Eglinton West. Hopefully we don't.
