    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    2B makes more practical sense in my opinion for the following reasons: - Remember, people take transit to get to places of interest.Terminating the line at Scarborough Centre connects to a major point of interest with relatively high levels of density. - For the same reason the Line 2...

    Population of Toronto (Including Census Counts)

    Is there anyway to get population numbers for the former 6? It would be interesting to see if any of the big 3 crossed the 1 million mark.

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    A connection here is so desired because it connects The Greater Junction Area to Shaw St through Lappin and Hallam to downtown and the waterfront. It's funny to outsiders because it seems like such a teeny tiny connection. If Wallace went further East to Shaw this wouldn't really be an issue...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    LRT would have been a wonderful solution along Sheppard and Finch East. I think it could have worked really well had it been implemented when originally theorized in Transit City nearly 20 years ago. But that time has passed. In the future Line 4 will connect 4 Rapid transit lines and will be a...

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    It would be cool to see a single SRT car in the mezzanine of the new Scarborough Centre station once it's built. Whether it be affixed to a wall, hanging over an open air section, etc. There are so many ways to memorialize parts of our past using artistic interpretation building it into our...

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    The UPX will be rolled into GO RER eventually. Weston is a dense 200 year old community in a Subway desert. I always find the argument that somehow this location isn't worthy of a stop strange considering how little time it adds to the trip.and that future electrification will reduce this...

    Toronto St Clair-Old Weston GO Station | 9.13m | 1s | City of Toronto | Hatch

    They could always elevate the streetcar over Old Weston, the rail corridor and Keele/Weston. Add no trackage to the streetcar route. Reduce pedestrian conflicts. Not crazy expensive. It could be our little Broadway Junction.

    Richmond Hill Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Oh, my apologies. I thought the Subway's purpose was to provide high order LOCAL transit in the City of Toronto. How can a station such as Cummer not meet this criteria? Losing stations like Cummer, I think the City should press the province to create firm boundaries on the area the subway is...

    Richmond Hill Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I'm sorry? Do the regions around Toronto contribute to the TTC subways operations, capital projects such as Signal Upgrades, station upgrades, fleet etc., which directly enable these extensions to suburbia? Or are we supposed to bite the bullet like we already do maintaining highways mainly...

    Richmond Hill Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I think we forget this is the Toronto Subway, plans for Cummer station have existed for decades. If any cost cutting measures are to be taken, surely it would be north of Steeles.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    You know, as much as York Region was undeserving of a subway extension, they paid their part. And after going up there to see the going ons it seems like they also have political will to change the built form around these new transit investments which should bode well for future ridership...

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    The objective should be getting more people on Transit. If that means 25,000 boardings at Bloor-Lansdowne slowing down the trip of 2,500 boardings at Waterfront Allandale, so be it. Although IIRC electrification leaves travel times unchanged for the most part with added stations.

    Ah, this makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.

    Waterfront Transit Reset Phase 1 Study

    I wonder if any provisions will be made for the once planned Bremner streetcar. Or maybe that ship has sailed already.

    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    Ah, I remember very dismissive statements out of the Miller camp regarding the DRL. I specifically remember that Miller made a point to say that the new streetcars were the capacity equivalent of a new subway line downtown. Miller made it abundantly clear a new subway downtown wasn't his...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The more I think about it, the more I seem to agree. IMHO, Sheppard should dip south of the 401 for a connection to Scarborough Centre on Line 2. I thought a connection at Sheppard and McCowan would suffice but the more I think about it I find the contrary to be true. Firstly, because of...

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I think a station here on yer Barrie line might be more desirable than people think. Connecting Woodbridge with Corso Italia. Surely a popular stop in the festival season. But I get the vibe the city would have to pick up the tab.

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Would be a good location for a station, I just hope they don't have to knock my house down to do it. Eek.

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    It was initially part of the Davenport diamond project but was shelved early on, then the station at Bloor was also delayed/shelved. Metrolinx then moved Earlscourt Station it to their 2035 plan.
