    Bradford Bypass (MTO, Hwy 400 - Hwy 404)

    I will vote for 419 simply cause it's after 418. I don't know they did it but they somehow have determine everything before 418 is not useable so East Durham Link became 418? 408 was for mid peninsula highway 411 for 11 413 for GTA west 414 ??? 415 for possibly highway 15 expansion??? This...

    The concept ML developed a decade ago is to relief half the lines to retain capacity at Union. They know they can’t do that for Barrie and Kitchener Lines.

    Bradford Bypass (MTO, Hwy 400 - Hwy 404)

    There is a major weaving issue with the Weston ramp being so close to that ramp too. Widening it would make that worst. The modern design would merge that Weston ramp with the 401 after the 401 to 400 ramp. Like how 407 is built. Widening would help but as drivers would have to slow to 50 km/h...

    Toronto | Ontario Line | ?m | ?s

    @nfitz Yes you're right the the regulation right now doesn't prohibits the city from making a Line 2 to Sherway. I guess I should rephase it to the city/TTC isn't "legally" banned but "de facto" banned from planning unless the financial situation changes. Queens Park/ML would not fund anything...

    Bradford Bypass (MTO, Hwy 400 - Hwy 404)

    This allows faster speeds like 80km/h instead of 40-50km/h. This prevents a backup approaching the interchange that we commonly see on the 401 to 400 and 401 to 404 interchanges. It’s one reason why the 401 is so jammed.

    The fact is Relief Line is dead. The city/TTC is banned from planning anymore subways so their won't be a RL west or RL north. All the studies that the city did went to the trash can. We never knew where exactly would RL west end up as there was no completed studies nor is there a preliminary...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    They really need to change the approach on how to provide service oppose to rewriting the schedule every year. Clearly it doesn't work. They need to look at trouble spots where congestion arises and have officers enforce regulations or someone doing point duty. Oh wait, that's too complicated...

    Metrolinx: Bombardier Flexity Freedom & Alstom Citadis Spirit LRVs

    Those first generation U2's were great except the awkward stares facing others. They done away those bench seats in later generations till now... Just like the TTC streetcars and GO trains now. Personally I feel like low floor is a major downgrade in comfort and ride smoothness. I wonder how...

    I was stuck on the Line 2 trains waiting up to 5 minutes till the track is clear. This was weekend service running every 4 min. I can't imaging this even working win peak hours with ATO.

    Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I suspect they have some real major issues like train problems, signal issues or ATO problems that isn't integrating well and they don't want to disclose until they resolve it. If Eglinton Station is aa bottleneck, they could split out a date unless that date is way pass 2023.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    The majority of the board are elected councillors. To be elected, they are generally pretty well off to support quitting your decent job and have a reputation. These people will general not ride the TTC or bother mingling to the lower classes of society. So why would we be surprised that every...

    Line 5 - Eglinton Crosstown West Extension Airport Segment

    Seriously if they are to start some as simple as twining Highway 17 in 2026, I don't even know if they will even start this extension by 2030.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    Better off extending to Long Branch and develop that area. It'll be a good sell with a reliable connection with Sherway and a developed Etobicoke core at Kipling. The only thing they have to do is turn that 6 point intersection into a "North York Centre". Line 2 could extend furth along the...

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    That’s putting yourself through 20 minutes of suffering as it inches though the highway 400 area

    Toronto | Crosstown Line 5 West Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Perhaps an intermediate capacity system like one of these solutions: https://www.hitachirail.com/products-and-solutions/rolling-stock/driverless/ It's not really fancy new tech like ML put it but rather something that TTC wasn't thinking of.
