Wow, looking at the density around Eglinton/Brimely/Danforth, then whoever proposed not having a station here has their heads up their asses.
Probably because the western portion isn't as urgently needed
If the narrow objective is only to relieve the Yonge line, then sure it's not urgently needed. But if replacing the King streetcar and bringing transit to rapidly growing neighbourhoods like Liberty Village got the attention it deserved, then the western portion is needed too.
Precisely. The 504 King Streetcar is sitting at 64,600 daily riders, the 501 Queen Streetcar at 52,500 daily riders and the 506 Carlton Streetcar at 39,700 daily riders. The Relief Line will intercept all three of these.^the western part of the line is more about streetcar system relief than yonge line relief.. and if King gets the ROW as planned, comboed with the higher capacity new streetcars, it may not be too necessary. Especially with Smart-Track,
