Y-U-S line becoming too long? in Greater Toronto Area Posted February 20, 2012 · Report reply This thought just came across my mind and it really got me thinking. Currently, the Y-U-S line has 32 stations, with the extention from Downsview north to Vaughan, it would have 38 stations, and IF it ever gets extended from Finch to Richmond Hill according to the current station plans, it would have 44 stations across the whole line. It has me wondering, would this make the line way too long and more of a nightmare to manage? Now, if the line went in a straight line across the city like the B-D line and the upcoming E-S-C LRT, at least it would have a valid point of connecting one area to another that are very far distances from each other. In the case of the Y-U-S line though, it is shaped like a U, and having the line be very long like this, it just really does not make any sense what-so-ever, considering that aside from transit fans and other people interested in subways and trains in general, ordinary folks would not travel from Richmond Hill Centre or Finch to Vaughan Metropolitan Centre the whole distance of the Y-U-S line. Having said that, I would like to know your ideas on this and solutions, like for example splitting the line into 2. Fire away any thoughts and ideas you guys may have on this!
