From The Star, on replicating the success of King Street elsewhere in town.
Spurred on in part by improvements to streetcar service on King St. downtown, Toronto transit planners are eyeing significant changes that would give transit vehicles priority over other road users on high-volume routes across the city.www.thestar.com
To me the 'Quick Wins' would be:
Don Mills from Wynford north to Sheppard. Just change the HOV to TTC only , put in bollards wherever driveways are more than 10m apart, eliminate lay-bys.
College/Carlton from Parliament to Manning. This is the wider bit of the road, you could go 'exclusive ROW' here, but you could also move to ban left turns off the street car tracks, and put barriers
preventing cars from going through/across the tracks except at intersections, and otherwise remove parking, if it blocks the remaining car lane.
Lawrence Avenue East from the DVP to Kennedy is another good stretch where taking over the curb or centre lanes for transit should be feasible, low-cost and not too disruptive.
I think Don Mills already functions well as-is.Just extend the HOV lane hours to accomodate a longer rush hour and things will be fine there.
