I meant, at peak capacity, slip of the fingers.
I've discussed this already, but heck, I want it said again that I can't agree with this enough. Stops should ONLY be at three places:No bus/streetcar stops in the city should be closer together than 300m
Maybe, but considering that its not the central core that has seen the mass job increases, the assumption that all of these people will be going south is a stretch. I wouldn't be so concerned about the new residences going up, but more the new offices going online over the next 5 years downtown that will drive it more. Its more dependant on the employment when we start discussing larger significant ridership changes.When they finish building condos in North York and subdivisions in south York Region, you might be singing a different tune.
Your opinion on this certainly is conservative.But thats a lot of 'ifs', and in my conservative opinion, wouldn't create the peak capacity.
You're assuming that the per capita ridership of the TTC stays the same, which is another "if". Per capita ridership is increasing, and has been for the last 10 years. You don't need new offices for ridership growth.Employment downtown has been stagnant during the 2000s after growth in the 90s. And don't forget that the university-spadina line is there as well that caters to most of the hospitals & UFT. Assuming the new offices bring new jobs, and not cannibalize off of the existing offices, and that everybody commuttes using the subway (as oppose to buying residences downtown within walking distance), 10K jobs will create additional ridership of 4.8 million a year (per 10K). But thats a lot of 'ifs', and in my conservative opinion, wouldn't create the peak capacity.
