    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Traffic can be extremely bad on Richmond/Adelaide in the afternoon rush, so bad that some of these buses are almost empty and extremely slow. The 14X express buses moving on King at the same speed as the King streetcars will be much faster, moving steadily.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    Adding buses at rush hour would be great. This line is totally full

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    It's for Shopify employees in both cities to visit the other office, they go both ways. I guess it's possible to commute every single day on it's not as common as using it for occasional trips was my impression. Even on a bus with wifi it's a pretty long commute to do 3-4 hours on a bus every...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    It's not really for daily commuters, it's more for occasional day trips between offices (both cities have sizeable offices although Toronto is much bigger).

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    It's very good & a huge improvement. However still it needs more service even with the bigger streetcars, it's still too full at rush hour where you can't get on. Occasionally (not too often) you have to wait 5-10 min for a the next streetcar. It should be expanded west to Dufferin due to demand...

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    It's amazing how much better this line is than a few years ago. The new trains, the pilot with new stops, POP combined together have made it so much more efficient, fast & reliable and subway-like. Of course, it could use more capacity and is sometimes packed full. Once it's made permanent, I'd...

    It's a really close walk, also a huge amount of people get off at Queen in the morning and work near Queen

    I think it will be a more common use case to bike to the subway station and take the train downtown than riding bike share all the way downtown, once there are at least a few more stations around the area.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    Hey, wondering what % of 504 King is new streetcars now on a weekday, and when can we expect it to be fully Flexity? Thanks

    Personally I think King & Spadina does need many stations right next to each other. There were always issues with no docks in the morning, no bikes at 5-6

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    Why were Presto readers installed near the back doors of buses if we can't get on using the rear doors?

    If it had gone one stop further west to Spadina, that one stop would've been extremely useful & well used, due to the tech office boom happening around Spadina. At least the King streetcar is much better now. Hopefully it can handle the growing number of people living and working west of...
