Sad to see the centre medium gone. I miss those holidays decorations.
Probably refers to VIVA or MiWay.When did TTC get an BRT system as I had to laugh reading this article??
I agree, the article glosses over many aspects of the BRT/LRT debate.I also sent a note that they need to get their facts right as we are NA, not South America or Mexico where triple articulated buses are legal as well in Europe. Did say TTC had express buses, not BRT.
I wonder if they've looked into building over track around Davisville (and other open air sections)? Their has been proposals for the Davisville area. CreateTO could use the air rights above TTC tracks to secure more affordable housing along all appropriate open sections of subway track.
Nothing is listed yet..........but the TTC is aware of an opportunity. (I mean general, not a specific proposal).
Josh Matlow is strongly pushing for park space on a deck over the tracks north of the yard.
The Yard itself is a bit more challenging for a variety of reasons (the TTC needs the capacity and the yard would have to remain operational not only at completion, but during construction; at the south end, the footprint of existing buildings is extremely close to the yard tracks as is (separation distance); also in addition to the obvious, Yellow Creek runs directly under the subway yard in a very large tunnel.
All that said, I expect you will see development here, but not in the near term.
Also the TTC is set to transfer their HQ to the City (likely CreateTO) which will put in the queue for redevelopment; once the TTC finds new digs.
