    Toronto Ontario Line 3 | ?m | ?s

    I propose Eglindon and Sheppardon Stations. ;)

    Danforth Line 2 Scarborough Subway Extension

    There's no pedestrian access to Triton Rd directly from the station, so people might go through Scarborough Town Centre to access destinations North of the station.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Sheppard West to Bayview makes sense because that means a chance for Willowdale Station. :cool:

    407 Rail Freight Bypass/The Missing Link

    What are the cost differences between quad tracking CN York and CP Midtown?

    Finch West Line 6 LRT

    I know in this specific case both platforms were placed on the same side because of the grade changes on the other side of the intersection for the tunnel, but what are some other cases where placing both platforms on the same side is preferred? I've read before for YRT Viva stops (Allstate...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Is this actually the intended designed use of the side of stairs for bikes?

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Is slowing at stations due to high platforms and lack of routing on passing tracks? Do low platforms have this safety concern too?

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    That's for the answer, but that only makes sense for the intersections that allow right turns on red. And even then, it wouldn't be safe for right turning traffic to go when the left turning traffic off the highway have left arrow priority as they might turn into the right lane. Also, this...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    Something I've noticed with York Region roads on the opposite side of the intersection with highway off ramps will reduce from two lanes to one lane. I understand why they don't have left turn signals, as that would increase the number of separate signal phases and reduce traffic flow of the...

    Canadian Highway Fantasy Thread

    You're thinking of the Bradford Bypass, which is more north. Did you mean 401?

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Was the reason for the portal east of Laird rather than only having a Don Mills East portal to prevent tunnelling under the Don River to keep costs down? Assuming no Sunnybrook Park stop nor station would exist of course.

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Just curious, would a fare increase of the UP Express, maybe even to the launch fares, have been more palatable than removing half the stops from half the trains?

    GTHA Transit Fare Integration

    I understand that the each local transit agency and Metrolinx are responsible for communicating the scope and proper uses of the One Fare Program, but I have to wonder why riders would even be allowed to get on non-TTC buses with a TTC paper transfer. Are bus operators suppose to at least try to...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413

    Don't forget the near impossibility to get extended east to Hwy 404.

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

    This report says there are provisions for a third track, but I'm not well versed enough to know if this was actually the case in the final design and construction.

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    The website does says it should open in June 2024. This is just speculation on my part, but I think they are waiting for the completion of the 16th Ave widening before opening the HOV lanes on Hwy 404. However, that makes no sense as the main widening for twin underpasses is already complete so...

    It's the chair colour that should have been on the trains. :mad:

    Toronto Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    Other than frequency, level boarding, and Pearson connection, is there anything UP Express trains have over GO trains on Kitchener line for commuting or as rapid transit? Do they have better acceleration and max speed for closer stop spacing from DMU vs locomotive and shorter length? Do they...
