    And there won’t be. The roads west of Etobicoke Creek are handling the bus traffic OK. It’s east of 427 that things get painful. A routing to Square One will not take buses off the road in Mississauga, because the collection area for TTC bound buses is too large. Cloverdale makes a lot of sense - but not further.

    The more worthwhile investment would be 4 or 5 tracking the Milton Line for all day 2 way/RER? service. Added to the Hurontario LRT, that would be pretty good service to Square One, no?

    Posted this in the Metrolinx general thread, thought it may be relevant here too.

    Do you have any idea what ridership numbers are today, let alone 25 years from now???

    If you want a subway to Sq One, how do you operate 2 cars trains on a 6 car line every 15 minutes at the best???

    Why is ML wanting to build an BRT on Dundas compare to an LRT to Hurontario or a Subway???

    It was originally supposed to be completed in 2015.

    "By early 2015 the extension was in danger of going off the rails. The cost, which had already jumped to $2.6 billion as the result of the decision to extend the line to the centre of Vaughan, was set to increase by another $400 million, and the opening date of 2016, already pushed back once, was deemed unachievable."
    https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/tr...-tragedy-a-subway-to-vaughan-is-complete.html

    Okay chill, it's just a subway extension proposal. It's not necessarily a good one, but that doesn't really matter. If we're to assume maximum catchment, the subway to Square One would see about 10-20K passengers from the GO Bus terminal and 15-30K Passengers from the MiWay bus terminals at square one. It would also receive a good 10-20K daily riders from the Milton GO line. Since Islington station sees about 40K daily users and the main users of the station are those of MiWay, we can throw in another 15-25K daily passengers. So far, the usage of this 7-8 km line would be around 50-95K passengers per day based on existing ridership, which is already in fair daily ridership justifications for a subway. When you consider that ridership usually doubles along corridors with subways or new higher order transit built (Sheppard Subway), then you can increase that range to probably around 75K - 145 K PPD. If these basic numbers are remotely accurate, there is a business case here, and it's stronger than that of the Scarborough subway.

    Here is a pic of that constructed and, seemingly, soon to be unconstructed canopy on the north side of EX station. Yes the path is narrow but opening will still aid people flow until the permanent solution arrives 1EFF6776-82A5-4167-872C-69ED6F599166.

    If that tunnel extension was open maybe this would not be the scene trying to get to the tunnel >15 minutes after a match played in a 2/3 (at most) full stadium.

    ^ There is also RFP-2017-CBA-064 which covers the double tracking to Aurora, exclusive of Davenport.

    It closes Aug 10th with expected financial close by Feb 27 2019.

    The original completion date, way back before they actually started tendering the contracts, was the end of 2015. The Pan Am Games ran in August, remember?

    Don't kill me guys. I was just saying. I think Milton GO service through Mississauga is a better bet anyway.

    Crazy that they are not planning a bus drop-off for the Humber Bay shuttle bus. Have a bus-only access directly from Royal York (replacing the inaccessible staircase). Which will also double as a way for cyclists and pedestrians to have easy access to the station.

    And why is the Toronto community housing fighting the southern access? Is it provincial vs city in-fighting or something else?
