    161-173 Gowan Ave

    Possible land assembly by Trolleybus on Gowan Ave? "Field Work in Progress" signs can be found on several of the front lawns of the six detached houses between 161 and 173 Gowan, which is two semi-detached homes west of Pape and just south of the planned Ontario Line Cosburn Station.

    Toronto Bike Share

    Station update from last week's Bike Share newsletter. Northern Light has mentioned the new stations already, but note the conversion of some existing stations to e-bike charging stations + the new ones to come.

    East York-Old East York

    Change of plans. The site is almost certainly going to be used for Ontario Line Cosburn station construction.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    His contract presumably is not actually up until mid-2023, if it is actually a 5 year contract, given that he was appointed in July 2018. https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/07/09/rick-leary-tapped-for-top-job-at-ttc.html...

    It's not explicitly stated at this previous UT news post , but reading between the lines it seems that is exactly what TTC is doing: "...along with a new main entrance building on the west side of Islington Avenue, connecting directly to the station’s existing concourse level."' "Fulfilling...

    Toronto | Kipling Station Transit Hub | ?m | 2s | Metrolinx | SAI

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The corridor that that room used to be would have led to just south of where the current north passage meets the stairs to Warden. Where the wall on the right side of this photo is.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Aha. This 1969 photo shows a corridor to the stairs to Warden and the north passage with an EXIT sign above it between bus bays 8 and 9. You can also see it tiled in this under construction photo. Today it's hidden away behind this Operators door.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    East York-Old East York
