...I suspect Steve Munro will have a deconstruction of Haider's points, and the flaccid City/TTC reaction to them.
The TTC is very protectionist about any ridership/capacity numbers. Rarely will a consultant come up to the same numbers they end up tossing out in the public eye. And they're super quick to tell anybody who isn't the TTC that their numbers are wrong. It's all super political and I don't even blame them. They're getting a designated transit corridor at no capital expense to them and they always have to fight tooth and nail for any funding. You're not going to throw a free gift in the garbage.
