Yeah, "Smart Track" is basically just a couple of GO stations at this point. The original plan of running separate services was basically a joke.isn't SmartTrack just a section of GO RER? will this section see different trains than the GO ones? I'm new to this proposal so sorry if it's a silly question
I consistently fail to find reference to better than 15 minute service on the Metrolinx website. Do you have a good reference to look at? I imagine Lakeshore would be higher frequency.No, stop it with this.
its AT LEAST 15 minutes for off-peak.
Its every 7.5 minutes at some stations and 5 minutes at other stations during on-peak.
Everytime I see this I cringe. Why oh why did Metrolinx say "at least 15 minutes". Such a marketing fail.
It would be like a car company saying "our cars go at least 20 km/h!"
On Kitchener and Stouffville will you find better than 15 minute service for all core stations. Kitchener between Bramalea and Union is every 10 minutes all-day every-day and Stouffville between Unionville and Union is every 7.5 minutes at-peak and every 10 minutes off-peak. You get closer to the every 5 minutes threshold if you count the further out services stopping at certain stations.I consistently fail to find reference to better than 15 minute service on the Metrolinx website.

I'll just repost this here. Again, Tory wasted 7 years of our time with projects that Metrolinx already had in the books. He even decided to be so generous to Metrolinx by offering and putting the city on the hook for 1 of their stations.
Metrolinx must love him dearly.

Maybe they are purposely being obtuse in case the trains run less frequently than they have planned. Less people will be able to point to their marketing and say look at what you liars promised.
