Now that Finch West LRT is moving forward I feel that it would make good sense and planning to have it extended to Pearson Airport. It could take off a lot of traffic pressure at 400/401 and other traffic arteries.
If ever the Finch West LRT would be extended to Woodbine and then Pearson Airport, out curiosity, what would be the best terminus end point for the Pearson Airport stop so that people could have the best and quickest connection time to Terminals 1 and 3?
The original plan was for the Finch West LRT to start at Yonge Street and go west to Humber College, with an extension to Woodbine Racetrack and Pearson Airport later. The non-transit users and penny-pinchers were not happy, so to appease them, the plan was cut back to start at Keele Street (Finch West Station), with an extension to Yonge Street coming later, and another extension to the airport in the very distant future. To have it go now to Pearson Airport, would just make them angry, very angry. (You wouldn't like it if they get very, very angry.)
