    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    The problem isn't everyone. It's just the seniors running large company would prefer doing the old way than to let new people try new things and screw up. They aren't open to change (which all people don't like to a certain degree). It reduces their risk. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

    It's hard to seen them in the dark when half the sign is black with a tiny logo.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    So planes fly over private properties all the time. Does it make it illegal? Nope. And according to the Q&A in the third link

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    What are you expecting they'll find? A 200 year old rotting piece of wood they'll deem historically part of the old parliament? Surely they'll have to dig it up. If they do find a buried building or tools, sure they should carefully examine it. If nothing comes up, they should just do business...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    A BRT only to Downsview won't be much different than what the 984B is providing today. Riders still have to navigate through that Sheppard-Yonge station maze to connect to the subways. Unless they start building better connections like VIVA has at VMC or how the Bloor Streetcar connected with...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Building it as a subway is totally a waste but as a LRT to build a LRT grid for Scarborough, I think it would be a nice touch. The Bridle Path subway is definitely dead last, just a discussion.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    True that's negative but unfortunately true. We can't even get passed the GO/TTC co-fare stage.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    With a scenic detour to Drake's backyard 😆 I would say they would have to short turn some trains at Laird if they ever approach capacity. Under this fantasy proposal, they could fix up the Leslie intersection and have a branch onto Lawrence East.

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    You can't build a crosstown line through the Bridle Path. A Lawrence West line from Weston and ending at Lawrence West Station could work. An extension onto Dixon to the airport could help develop the airport strip. They could even include a branch into Woodbine Casino. Allen to Yonge would...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Too bad TTC doesn't have all the money in the world to satisfy everyone. The Labovic-Hakimi stop is there so people can walk to/from the store closer instead of walking to Pharmacy or Warden. Fair amount of people uses those bus stops so the removal would make it a pain for the locals.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Maybe they thought that the HOV lanes won't need to hold up as well as the general lanes as heavy tucks are prohibited on them. MTO requires them to hold up for a certain number of years even through I highly doubt they go after them if the roadway fails to do so. Just look at how they do with...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Unlike the crosstown, Humber College is on a parking lot where they can do anything they want without being interfered with traffic and Finch West is located above line 1 with a rough in connector. If they screw up, they really have nobody to blame except covid-19.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Meaning they are looking for a provider (e.g. Uber) to drive people from the GO station to their homes or a location (specific stops) close to their home so they can stop driving and filling up the parking lots. I only see this feasible during peak hours. The cost of running this service at...

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    They would pressure TTC to write schedules in favour for workers instead of customers. Things such as moving to one person train operation would reduce delays but they would protest those measures. That's not a permanent thing. Until they open that blocked off tunnel as seen in the video...

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    I doubt anything will change unless the TTC union gets fired and they stop scheduling for the thin budget. They mainly stick to a schedule so all the operators get back to Coxwell on time cause they want to refuse overtime. They do all these crew changes to avoid overtime. Unless they put...

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    In regards to the Etobicoke RT, by the time the SRT is done and settling down and even if it worked well, Ontario was about to enter into a recession. Nothing would have been built in the early 90s even if the SRT was a success and built for CLRVs. Then they'll have to solve the hydro corridor...

    Crosstown LRT | Metrolinx

    Age doesn't really affect the size of the city. HK is a newer than TO. Then there is many great ancient cities that became deserted. Dubai wasn't much beyond a tiny settlement till oil became important. A city could be receive a complete facelift in a matter of 20-30 years.

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    Kipling is one of the most effective bus terminal on the TTC. Only a flight of stairs and a few meters of walking between bus and subway. They wouldn't have to replace it and have everyone funnel through a narrow corridor. Considering they'll have to pay an annual fee to ML to maintain it, that...

    Trackless Trams (BRT/LRT hybrid or alternative)

    They are just biarticulated GPS/lane marking guided buses in disguise.

    Eglinton did have an additional bus/HOV peak hour/general off peak lane.
