the lrt people simply don't believe the numbers. If Jesus told me these numbers were in fact true then I would be with the subway. But I have a hard time believing there is no bias in the numbers. Also the three stop subway was decent but ONE stop. My goodness I have a hard time with that. Everyone keeps throwing around the word network. I want a network as well. I would like someone to propose converting Sheppard Subway to LRT. Instead were living in a subways or nothing world. Which makes me concerned that the Eglinton line will not be extended. I wish I had the faith to think that we are actually going to build a DRL, Scarborough Subway, Eglinton extension, Finch to Yonge, all before 2031. But the older I get the more sceptical I get.
Many places around the world have express subway service.
Also the what caught my attention is the SSE costing about the same as the TYSSE but moving more people.
STC station being #7 overall in ridership at opening date.
I mean when are we going to stop nitpicking until we find something to dismiss this subway.
My God, Vaughan and Richmond Hill doesn't get a fraction of that scrutiny yet we're happy to build them subways "to help" their city centre grow, but we refuse to do it for our own city.
What's wrong with us? City staff stated clearly that this city is competing against other centres in the GTA, and here we are drinking the "cool-aid" of councillors who want Scarborough to stay the way it is.
Not a single one of them LRT councillor said a single word about the Renaissance of STC brought forth by city staff. They disregarded it like it didn't matter and that's a fact.
Let's just build it, redevelop and rethink Scarborough Centre and move on once and for all
