We need a transit czar who will over-rule the dictates of the Transportation Roads Department, who refuse to give public transit priority. At the moment, the Transportation Roads Department only give transit non-priority traffic signal control. Why should three or four single-occupant automobiles making left turns to go first ahead of the 100+ on board the streetcars (or 300+ on the light rail vehicles).Just stop catering to cars.
the 501every streetcar transit priority and keep cars out of the streetcar lanes. No more street parking on any streetcar route. You've instantly improved the reliability and speed of every route. Instantly create 5 LRT routes into downtown.
No need for branch routes of the OL when the 501 is handling 15k pphpd on the Queensway and Lakeshore.
