We'd have amazing transit if your TTC fare could get you on one of these trains without additional charges (or some nominal amount like $0.25).I disagree.
The downtown stations like Liberty, St.Clair, Unilever, Gerrard etc had the most value as far as I am concerned.
With proper fare integration mind you.
Yes, 100%We'd have amazing transit if your TTC fare could get you on one of these trains without additional charges (or some nominal amount like $0.25).
That's also how you drive ridership up to make the project look successful and like a good use of taxpayers' dollars to justify further service increases. If people balk at the suggestion, consider this: if it was a TTC subway line, no one would ask you to pay a separate fare. So why not integrate the fares, increase the service, and avoid having to build a more expensive subway line that both Toronto and GTA residents would have to pay for?
The fact that it can take you just as long to travel 10 km to downtown in Toronto by TTC as it takes someone to travel 30 km by GO is terrible. Rather than spending billions on subways, we could improve the situation considerably with RER that's fully integrated with the TTC. It would also make it possible for more people in the suburbs to commute to workplaces that aren't within walking distance of GO stations.
Nice. They have a plan now.
Well technically its not a full subway since the section at Jane is above ground but yes you are correct.Nice. They have a plan now.
The Renforth Station connection (now underground/below grade) makes a lot more sense than the old on street connection. So it does look like it's a full subway between Renforth and Mt Dennis
It was in the works years ago. I wish the plan would come back. Connecting it to Renforth would be the most logical choice. Could also go south along the Campa SubI wish there was a plan for an additional north-south rapid transit line in it's own ROW in Etobicoke. Kipling is the most logical choice. A BRT could be installed quickly and cheaply and upgraded later if necessary.
