    Richmond Hill Toronto | Yonge Line 1 North Subway Extension | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Suppose the TOC money does not cover the cost of a Royal Orchard Station. Does this mean that the government could reverse course and cancel the station due to lack of funding?

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The Ontario Line doesn't really provide a strong east/west service.....It stops at Bathurst/King and then takes a turn towards Exhibition, which is stupid and results in a permanent end towards real East/West service at Bathurst. Even most people who live at Liberty Village will just end up...

    Guys, can you move the Indigenous people talk to another thread so we can keep this on topic?

    Today is another consultation. I didn't go to the first one, but I plan on going today, and advocating for a subway. I'd encourage others in this forum to do the same.

    I don't think we will ever see Senlac, Willowdale, or Faywood ever come to reality as stations. It would be really surprising if this happened, but I doubt it. For the west extension, the only real station that is needed in between the two branches of Line 1 is Bathurst Station.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Metrolinx has stated on the site that they are considering building an LRT (not in those exact words) and that they haven't made a decision on the mode. Perhaps they might back track and build an LRT instead of a subway if the subway costs skyrocket. I'm not sure we are out of the woods just yet...

    Roughly how long do you guys think it will take until we get a business case out for this?

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Not really. They don't have some kind of monopoly over subways just because they decided to build four projects. The city can create its own projects.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I think it is a hilarious joke to think that Josh Matlow would ever even consider extending the Sheppard Subway, even if somehow magically it were a free extension. For the love of anything good in the universe, I hope that Josh Matlow never becomes Mayor. Not just because of his ridiculous...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Dude.....We don't do proper TSP in Toronto with LRTs....did you not read what I said? Metrolinx changed it's mind on TSP with the Eglinton LRT and it is unlikely that any Sheppard LRT would have transit signal priority.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Uhh...no. Building 'simply anything' would not be a good idea. Building an LRT would just force a linear transfer and piss a lot of people off who wanted a subway because then the LRT would be along with a linear transfer would be around for decades. I'd rather build a subway, since it's a catch...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I've read the comments that work is being done behind the scenes on it and about the gossip/speculation. I just have a hard time believing that *meaningful* work is being done at the moment to bring this to reality.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The Sheppard West extension is not a provincial plan at all for now. Only Sheppard East is. And I have a feeling that the Market Updates will not have any update on the Sheppard East extension for a couple of years, and it will be a campaign promise for the next election. I hope I'm wrong.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    It doesn't seem as though it is in the Metrolinx Project Pipeline https://www.metrolinx.com/en/projectsandprograms/constructionanddevelopment/docs/2022/CPG-Commercial-Construction-and-Professional-Services-Pipeline-October-2022.pdf Hopefully there is still some active work being done on it.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    I am specifically referring to an LRT to Sherway, which doesn't make any sense considering it would be a line that is only 3.5 km. I don't think it makes any sense to force an interchange and do all that construction for a subway that can be constructed without tunneling it for such a short...

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    No one is not thinking of the people who don't wanna go downtown. There are buses that can handle those trips. Imagine having this thought process when building the Yonge Subway line and saying 'people wanna go places in between. Let's not build a subway and an LRT instead' which would make...

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    Is the Spadina streetcar and St. Clair also still in testing? Because they are practically all the same.

    Toronto Toronto | Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | Arcadis

    So I was driving along Eglinton earlier on the east end and I stumbled upon a crosstown vehicle. It got met with every single traffic light. It was beyond slow. It also went through each intersection quite slowly. This is quite sad. A perfect example of throwing away billions on an "LRT".

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Well, Nick Mantas got re-elected, so I don't think anything will change related to this.

    TTC: Bloor Danforth Line 2 West Extension(s)

    An LRT to Sherway would be a joke. There is already a Dundas BRT that is planned, and having an 'LRT' for roughly 3.5 km is absolutely nonsensical and force a linear transfer for a shuttle doesn't make any sense.
