    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I love all these improvements coming online right now. Although whether Toronto is becoming a transit city is debatable, it really feels like we are becoming a cycling city.

    how long until toronto surpasses chicago on skyscrapers?

    Population has been declining. On the flip side, # of households has gone up. Average household size has gone down dramatically.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    With all our additional bike infrastructure since the Jarvis cycle lanes were taken out I'd prefer that Jarvis now stays as is. We need some streets to be able to maintain high vehicle throughout and this will likely be the only north - south street to have it after our cycling infrastructure...

    Roads: Traffic Signals

    My first thought is that the motions to add traffic signals was originated before the cycle lanes were put in. Bloor is much calmer due to its narrowing and I'm skeptical (without looking into it) that addition lights would be needed.

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    That's all the seats on a bus right there. Maybe Brampton transit needs to run articulated only now

    Problematic Park Design - Why Some Parks Don't Work

    @Northern Light I was wondering if you have taken a look at the latest for the downtown linear parks I did the survey and while the parks look ok I am not happy with the design. Some seats and pretty art don't make...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I'm hoping since they originally said by the end of May that it will actually be 'substantially' completed before winter is in full force.

    @Northern Light Do you know when the College Street bike lane construction is scheduled to wrap up? Website still says May 2023

    The Coming Disruption of Transport Cheaper trips increase car usage. Robo-taxis will make traffic worse without accompanying regulation (I don't know what that regulation would be)

    Parking - Catch All

    25% seems way to high to remove pay and display machines. If they want to save on operational costs, it might make sense to increase the distance between machines where there is 90%+ app usage. Some streets have a high density of machines and if 1/3 of the machines were removed there it could...

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    West of Yonge riders have incentive to switch to Eglinton. East of Don Mills not so much.

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    Line 1 is full before Eglinton during rush hour. Before the Ontario line is up and running I don't see any reason to switch to Eglinton from another feeder route. What would those situations potentially be?

    TTC: Jane (LRT) RapidTO

    Eglinton doesn't have the highest ridership east of Don Mills. The TTC is handling higher ridership volumes than are found on Eglinton with buses. Once all those condos on the Golden Mile are occupied, the Ontario Line will be running. I don't see the case for the Eglinton to be at capacity.

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I hope our cycling infrastructure will be sufficient for the tidal wave of cyclists coming in 5-7 years when all the condos with no car parking are occupied.

    Universal Health Care - Still Not Possible in US

    US progressiveness has to start at the state level. My understanding is that Hawaii has quite extensive coverage "To date, Hawaii is the only state to have implemented near-universal health insurance. The cornerstone of this program is the country's only requirement that employers provide health...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    A lot of the discussion is why I don't think it can work. I'm not that familiar with the surrounding areas but I doubt there is a ton of bike lanes around all 3 stations. Bramalea station definitely doesn't and requires sidewalk riding to feel safe. Will the docking stations be near the home on...
