Hopefully there's a healthy and long-term period to add extra trains. Particularly if other extensions go ahead, such as a Line 4 extension, or there is a need to run trains more frequently.The current RFP quantities simply cover a 1-to-1 replacement of the current fleet, plus a couple of additional trains to cover the projected improvements to the existing line/service for the next 10-ish years.
There are a number of options available to be taken that cover the additional trains required for the Scarborough Extension, both for the limited service that the TTC has publicly claimed will be run (every second train) and for an enhanced service where every single train is run up to Sheppard.
Though the TR contract certainly had enough amendments for extra trains, and modified configurations.
