We're really off topic here but I'd suggest not bothering with Keele station. Push the 506 deeper into the park, go north along a Colborne Lodge alignment and loop at High Park station. Just think of the rail-fan photo ops.
As it stands, the King Project is an orphan, and as much as some will think "let's not get ahead of ourselves", a bigger vision is needed to sell this. I've taken the King car from downtown to Dundas West a number of times lately, mid to late afternoon, purely because sometimes I just can't face being a rat in the subway, and to see how much of a difference has been made on King...and I've been disappointed each time. It *crawls*! Still!Looking at the busyness of the line/route today, if we are going to keep the street substantially free of cars, then it could be time to consider a people mover on this scale. I posted two pictures earlier today. At Yonge, there were over forty people waiting to board eastbound at 5:30 on a Sunday.

Of course it's possible. Averages always fail to show individual variations. The whiners MAY be getting less business because their food has got worse or more expensive, because they ARE whiners or for lots of reasons.I might be wrong, but is it possible that the businesses on the Pilot that claim to be negatively affected are actually telling the truth and the spending being "in line" with other years is because other businesses are getting more spenders? So some are losers and some are winners, but that balances it out?
