Nice, quite a few times I have been stuck there being the only one among a group of friends to not bring a bike. This resolves that niche use.

New Stations for Sunday June 28th.

Guildwood GO Stn (both north and south lots)
Royal York Rd and Lake Shore Blvd.

*** Long Branch GO
*** Marie Curtis Park

*** These have been added to the network, I spotted them today, but have not been announced on social media that I can tell. So these may have been today or prior.

Total adds 4 locations, 5 sets of stations.

---------

Editorial Note, with the Guildwood addition, I get that more stations are planned out there, but as of this moment you can only bike from the north parking lot to the south lot, unless you want a lot of overage fees, as the next closest station is roughly Victoria Park and Danforth.

I do find their way of rolling out locations .....ummmm, esoteric.

If only subway infrastructure was this quick haha.

Todays subway stations are Corktown, Gerrard East, Pape, Thorncliffe Park.

I'd settle for 'This year's subway stations are'

That's something we actually came pretty close to achieving in the 70s.

Lawrence and York Mills opened in 1973
Sheppard and Finch in 1974
Spadina subway in 1977 (Spadina, Dupont, St. Clair West, Eglinton West, Glencairn, Lawrence West, Yorkdale and Wilson)
Kennedy and Kipling in 1980

So for a 8-year period Toronto opened 2 or more stations in 4 different years. Can one imagine?

14 stations total.

Would love to see incremental increases to our transit network. Line 2 can be extended incrementally towards Sherway Gardens for instance. Yonge North could begin with Steeles and coordinate with land use changes to Yonge & Cummer and Yonge & Steeles. Eglinton Crosstown once built, could also be incrementally extended east of Kennedy.

Unfortunately this makes far too much sense and our politicians are bozos who dont understand this concept. For some reason a subways has to stretch all the way into Vaughan in one shot, and then stretch all the way to Richmond Hill in another shot.

The piecemeal approach in extending subway lines makes far more sense, but that's Toronto and Ontario politics for you.

Why was it achievable in the 70's?
