They're not for now.Is this confirmed? I assume they're going to install Presto machines at the new stations...
Problem is it will be hard for the Liberals to get rid of this if they get in.I couldn't imagine sitting in those GO seats for that long. Those seats are so uncomfortable, plus if you have two taller people sitting in-front of you, there goes your leg room! As you pointed out the seats are not designed for long hauls, it's commuter rail.
When i was staying in Guelph a few years back. I took VIA rail to Toronto, the leg room and comfy seats, plus coffee service, made it worth the extra 10 to 20 bucks depending what day i took the train.
Should have been bus service, gage the market first. And then trains.
It's too far and there's not a huge consumer base. Plus the service will be below par if they start next month.Why is this not a good idea? I know a lot of people from the London area who would disagree with you.
