    VIA Rail

    Dunno, if this is at all burdensome but it would be cool for VIA to colour code Corridor East and Corridor West trains.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Yeah. I can't believe options 1 and 3 are even real. It makes no sense to extend the subway without connecting Yonge and Spadina. I dunno. With upzoning, these stations could be more useful.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Welcome to the troll's tactics. Regular moving goalposts, red herrings and strawmen. All from a dude who lives in Sudbury and visits Toronto 2-3x by driving here.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Well reasoned. 2B works for those coming from the East and heading into the core or midtown. But for that, there's already Line 2. Option 2B screws over a lot of north Scarborough travel.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Mostly agree. I wouldn't want the possibility ruled out. That's why I prefer Option 2A.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    You're not wrong. But I'm not sure the juice is worth the squeeze. It's 7 km of subway from the end of Port Union to McCowan via Sheppard. That's a lot. And Rouge Hill GO isn't even at the end of Port Union. So either a complicated approach to the station or a relocation of Rouge Hill GO...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    You are still talking as though RER is not under construction right now. You know that $12B transit projects, take a few years right? But RER is due to mostly be in service by 2032. That is looking to be about the same timeline as the Ontario Line, Yonge North and possibly even Scarborough...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I love that the rest of you who don't regularly frequent the several intercity threads are discovering the joy of dealing with the consummate railfan who thinks any problem can be solved with a multi-billion dollar rail line.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    RER will exist and be in service before this proposal gets a shovel in the ground. Wait till you hear about the GO Bus network. See. This is the problem with living in Sudbury and thinking you know about transit in the GTA. You have no actual perspective on how people use transit in the...

    And will be a lot faster after RER.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Vaughan is a tad sketchy. But at least with Richmond Hill, Yonge is mostly a continuous corridor till the 407. It makes sense to service it with continuous service. And Vaughan mostly functions as collector stations north of the 407. Going to Pickering via Sheppard is some next level meandering.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    A curved tunnel rules out extension of Line 4 to the East. It also rules out building those parallel transfers for any Sheppard East LRT..

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    What exactly would be the point of extending Line 4 to Pickering? Who exactly are they trying to serve that won't already be benefiting from numerous other services being put into place?

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Apologies! I meant 2B in that post! Fixed. And I agree. 2B does screw over North Scarborough.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I just don't see DSBRT as that significant. Especially in a world of RER, EELRT and Line 4 in Scarborough. But if it really is a deal, DSBRT is a bus service. Just add McCowan station to the route.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The point of going to Morningside is network completion. It's not necessarily just immediate ridership. There's value in connecting EELRT to the Sheppard subway. How much is definitely debatable. Arguing that it should go to Rouge Hill is nuts. That's still 7 km away (along Sheppard and...

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    I assume it's optioned this way on purpose. You either want to go deeper in Scarborough and get a one-seat ride to Yonge or you want a one seat ride all along Scarborough and North York from McCowan to Sheppard West.

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    The way I see it 2B kinda screws over North Scarborough and Markham for subway access to only improve regional travel marginally. This has the feel of the LRT vs subway debate all over again where a bunch of people who don't live in the area are prioritizing goals other than local benefits.
  20. K

    Sheppard Line 4 Subway Extension (Proposed)

    Post-Line 2 and Sheppard extension nobody will be taking an LRT to connect to a subway at Kennedy. They would take a bus to McCowan station and have two options there. This is why I say connecting EELRT to MTC is largely redundant. I don't think they should bother unless it's a Sheppard branch...
