actually it has light rail going to both airports and it's a 'future' map which is why it contains some items that don't exist in present time.Subway to a non-existent Pickering International but no subway to Pearson?
one of these days I'll get around to making a regional fantasy map, this gives me an idea to add an arrow graphic representing 'possible regional extension'maps have lines that go no further than Steeles
flash would only really be needed if you wanted to animate, add music, make things clickable, or do something that requires using it's programing language (ActionScript). I might be able to help.flash doesn't offer a pallet large enough to show everything I want to show
I created the map using scalable vector graphics files which i downloaded from here. The easiest way to make the map was copy and paste them into flash so I could use the object snapping to make sure they align correctly.flash would only really be needed if you wanted to animate, add music, make things clickable, or do something that requires using it's programing language (ActionScript).

That's already happening though. All those GO/YRT/VIVA/Brampton buses that feed into Finch GO Terminal in effect make it that by York Mills all new passengers will have to stand. Either a subway extension or new LRT/BRT would merely switch modes of transit with regular buses.You must understand, Dentrobate, that buways or LRT feeding into the subway at Steeles will fill up just the same as if you extended the subway north.
I think a lot of them do, only if properly provoked (such as getting them to go ride another city's transit system). For instance, I have heard on many an occasion a CBC (Chinese-born Canadian) saying on his/her first trip to Hong Kong, "if transit in Toronto was as convenient like that, I'd give up the car."In my observations, the average citizen in Toronto does not know or care about the potential transit system that Toronto can have.
I agree, it is sad and unfortunate that when people view 'future' maps, they think its cool, but its not going to happen. This is due to the many disappointments that Toronto has faced, due to lack of funding, shifts in political power, etc. However, in the next 50 years, congestion will grow tremendously and it important that people do not lose faith on our transportation system (TTC).Nice effort!
You've retained the black background which is very unique to Toronto (and Montreal).
I think everyone gets excited when they see pretty maps of what our future system "could" look like, but there's a built-in "it's never going to happen," "it's way too expensive" or "where's the subway to Brampton, do you know how many people live here now?" mentality that prevents most of the GTA populace from really going after their politicians and demanding something akin to what you've offered.
