    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Disappointing to see that the King Victoria transit hub is still TBD on timelines. The passenger experience at Kitchener station is rally lacking right now, especially if connecting from the ION, and people have been waiting for the upgrades for years now. The original public consultations were...

    Toronto Toronto | CIBC SQUARE | 241.39m | 50s | Hines | WilkinsonEyre

    Funny that's probably my least favorite prominent building in the financial district lol. I find the towers surrounding it to be all far more visually interesting.

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Didn't know about the sidewalk minimum thanks! It is a tight squeeze when accounting for stops and shelters though midblock there is totally room for wider sidewalks and even other street furnishings. I should note the broadview idea was just for north of gerrard by the park. South of gerrard...

    TTC: Streetcar Network

    Used streetmixer to come up with some ideas for how dedicated streetcar(/bus) lanes could look like on narrower ROWs For broadview by riverdale park, think only 1 lane for access is necessary (switches direction every block), and getting rid of all the cars would make the park a lot more...

    This alignment looks pretty natural with plenty of golf courses that could become wonderful new TOD...

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

    i know there’s at least one staircase along the viaduct for emergency exits, there might be more

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    The GO expansion full business case projects a ridership of over 200 million annually which doesn't quite compare to pre-pandemic subway ridership but is still more than the subway moved last year so I wouldn't call it small ridership. I also think the estimates could be a little on the low end...

    TTC/Metrolinx: Scarborough Subway Extension

    With all of the redevelopment at woodside square I think an extension there makes sense, but Markville seems a little far. It has the same problem as the Mississauga City centre. With the redevelopment planned at Markville it will have the density required for a subway, but the 7 km in between...

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    I feel like people underestimate how many people take the subway through union. Every time im there im surprised by the amount of people who stay on the train.

    I mean in this area the horse & buggy modal share is def higher than the provincial average

    Toronto Toronto | 847 Kingston | 38.21m | 10s | Gabrielle Homes | Teeple Architects

    Massive glow-up! Original renders were bleak for sure.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    GRT fare of 3.50 is even cheaper! Closest GRT stop is a 41 minute walk from the airport, but only 7 minutes by car (or bus if they were to run one. It could even connect up to the future Breslau GO station only a couple of km north. If the airport wants to be at all competitive with flights out...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Some friends of mine decided to fly to Vancouver out of Waterloo airport instead of Pearson because it was cheaper. None of them owned a car and had to Uber there. The current demand does not justify any GO service, but they could at least start with a GRT route for those who don't want to pay...

    Toronto Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    I believe Scarborough centre will still be the larger bus terminal even if Sheppard and McCowan is to be the line's terminus

    Mississauga Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    It also doesn't have the desgnation of highway 10 untill north of highway 10 but i think it's close enough I don't think 103 works just because it's so long and definitely doesn't fit into the subway numbering scheme at all. Admittedly neither would 10 (kind of my point) but it at least seems a...

    Eglinton East LRT | Metrolinx

    In terms of network connectivity Sheppard west is definitely a more important project, though I definitely disagree that finch is more important. Eglinton East connects 2 GO stations, a university, and a couple of busy local nodes vs 1 future go station and a college that is already going to be...

    Mississauga Toronto | Hurontario-Main LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    I like the idea of maybe using a letter (H for hazel or hurontario, but ig hamilton would also want H) though ik metrolinx wants to use letters more for GO. If the line were to get a number i think 10 would be best. Feels far enough removed from the other subway line numbers while still making...

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    The new Metrolinx site says the Finch West line will open in 2023, with no such mention for Eglinton.

    Toronto Toronto | The One | 338.3m | 94s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Does anyone know what floor they're on? Feel like it's been hovering around 18 for a while now.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    Most other universities had their reading weeks in October. I know tonnes of students who are struggling to find ways to get into Toronto right now.
