Suburban traffic lanes carry 900-1,200 vehicles per hour at peak iirc
It's not like 20 buses an hour adds much to congestion.

And the loss of buses - running approximately every 3 minutes in their own lane - counts for nothing, of course?

Memories are short. I used to hate Eglinton. There were reserved bus lanes on the curb which were a total pain in the ass to navigate. I'll take in median and separated over dodging buses stopping randomly any day. As for every three minutes. It seemed they used to travel in packs - three at one intersection at a time. I don't miss that.

According to Metrolinx Capital Project Report for next week meeting, overhead insulation is supposed to be taking place from the west portal to Caledonia, but I don't see any from the portal to Mt Dennis yet.

Over 41% of the track has now been installed on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT (ECLRT) along with all of the fibre, lighting, overhead catenary system and cabling from Mt. Dennis to Caledonia.

I consider Eglinton the northern side of Toronto. Bloor is the middle of Toronto. King street downtown. The rest is the burbs.
