Spadina-King-Parliament maybe?Normally I'd agree with having a grid system, but when you have a line that's operating so close to downtown, it makes sense to have it actually go through downtown. Forcing a transfer at Sumach to go downtown for a whole 2 stations would be annoying for many. If I'm heading southbound on Parliament, I'd much rather just stay on the streetcar I'm on and access downtown via King, even if it does end up being marginally slower. FWIW, I think Spadina suffers from the same issue. It'd be nice if there was a sub-route on Spadina that went east on either King or Queen, giving direct downtown access.
With that alignment, it gives people in St. James Town, Cabbagetown and Regent Park an alternative means for reaching the Financial and Entertainment Districts.
