  1. While I can see tourists on line 5, especially once it is extended to the airport, since it goes to Science Centre and I think there are some other museums along the route. I can’t see any tourists aside from transit fans visiting anything along Finch West. Perhaps when line 5 hits the airport they can give the rolling stock some sort of wrap with pictures of planes, attractions and city views.
  2. Huh, not sure what you are trying to say? She was Trump's first wife.
  3. Rogers is still very much family run/controlled. Edward Rogers and Melinda Rogers are chairman and deputy chairman of the board. Rogers Control Trust also owns majority voting shares of Rogers.
  4. Could be - I saw it while driving by in the opposite direction through 4 lanes of traffic.
  5. 9233 Healthy Planet full wrap on 36 today.
  6. If they extend the line to Major Mac at Jane it will lead to more (re)development north of Major Mac at which point they may want to extend line further north. If you make it a loop do you still designate specific station(s) as endpoints where crews get a break?
  7. Are you comparing first 2 year of Flexities to last 2 years of CLRVs?
  8. Perhaps this could be done when they begin work on the North Yonge extension. Something has to be done for sure - it is not normal when the trip southbound from Finch to Queen takes 28 min (am rush), while the trip north in pm rush is at least 35 minutes and sometimes closer to 45 min. This is prepandemic, haven’t been on the subway since Mar 2020, but suspect it didn’t improve.
  9. What about the following scenario (if all pieces were built): A northbound train arrives at Finch unloads, proceeds north into a tail track, crosses to southbound direction and then loads at the south bound platform. Would this solve or at least alleviate the problem? If it does, perhaps the TTC should build this while they are building the subway extension so that at least for the duration of construction passenger’s commutes are improved.
  10. Will completion of ATC and signalling upgrades on Yonge line fix the issues with northbound trains getting into a traffic jam as they approach Finch station ( with the backup sometime later starting between York Mills and Sheppard)?
  11. Wouldn’t this make the line a bit long - it would be something like 1.5hr one way trip.
  12. Given Queensway is a very old property in my opinion it doesn’t make sense to add anything to it. It would be better to find a larger property elsewhere and build a new garage. Then if current Queensway property is still needed then current garage could be demolished and rebuilt.
  13. What an odd split for deliveries. Why not receive 140 buses in 2024?
  14. With more than 25,000 people living within walking distance to the theatre (the plan calls for something like 13100 units in the buildings to be built on site) plus the thousands more around VMC I can see demand there for a fairly large entertainment complex. With Interchange way extended west to Weston maybe the circular route become VMC - portage (there is a large development planned there as well at Portage and 400) - Weston - Colossus - Interchange- Jane - Hwy 407 Station. Although even if the project gets approved as is it will be years before it is fully built.
  15. From Keele/Major Mac you have to walk over to the station (700m). Given the frequencies of YRT buses it probably makes sense to walk rather then wait for the Major Mac bus for 2/3 stops. Likewise from nearest stops on Major Mackenzie its 500-600m to the station.
