Denzil Minnen-Wong needs to take a hike as clearly oblivious to everything in life. Obviously there are going to be a large group of stations that are highly profitable, while others are essentially subsidized by the highly profitable ones. Just because Toronto Bike Share is under the umbrella of the TPA, doesnt mean it's going to generate a profit like its parent organization.

But that thought obviously flew over his head since he doesnt comprehend semi-complex affairs. Why did Tory pick him as a deputy mayor again?
Exactly this. Anytime anyone tries to convince you that John Tory is some grand conciliatory figure who puts rational thought above ideological politics, remind them that he appointed DMW and Stephen Holyday as his deputy mayors and installed the former as Vice Chair of his Exec Committee, and that this is the kind of shit you get from these folks.

I generally do like John Tory, but I didn't vote for him in 2018 for precisely those reasons. When delegated responsibilities fall to those like Stephen Holyday and DMW who cannot see the forest for the trees, and are simultaneously penny wise but pound foolish with the public sphere, true city building cannot take place.

I don't think it's a factor that anyone in his natural base would consider come election time except for those who are entangled in municipal affairs, unfortunately.

Judging by the map, I think there was more expansion than just along the Finch Hydro Corridor (which btw certainly spices up the map). I am seeing more stations in Etobicoke along Royal York and on the other side of the Humber near The Queensway.

Yes, I reported on those last week. Excepting Eglinton/Scarlet which is today.

That map graphic is a joke. If you look at it closely, you'll see that the park and water colour layers are mis-registered, so badly that it's hard to tell what you're looking at in some cases related to parks and the waterfront. Neither would I pay much attention to the dashed black lines: there are new stations far outside that area in some cases. We can only really wait and see where they all go (except in Bradford's Ward where he's managed to wring that info out of them).

Over the course of 12 installation days of the first two weeks this year, they have now installed 76 of the 160 new stations That's an average of 6.333 stations per day. They should be able, at this rate, to finish after another 14 or 15 installation days over the next 16 or 17 days (assuming another day off for Canada day, not just Sundays.

The two stations north along the Humber Trail at Eglinton and close to Lawrence have me hoping that they'll install a number of more stations along the trail as part of the remaining 84 this year. Being a Ward 3 guy, I'm hoping for more here. The two that have gone in near me at Berry & Bell Manor and at The Queensway & High Street mean that I have regular access to the network now if I want to bike for groceries or down to the Lake and then east or west, but I want stations at Old Mill and Royal York areas, and west along the Queensway too, for this system to become really useful.

This expansion map for 2020 posted by @salsa suggests no more outposts on western Bloor St. this year.

…well, that would still allow for Old Mill and Prince Edward locations along Bloor, plus Queensway and Royal York…



…but I don't believe the map as there have already been new stations located outside the expansion areas shown, including the Eglinton/Scarlett and Weston Lions Park ones, plus the York University ones.

So like I said, we just have to wait and see!
