Y-U-S line becoming too long?

Recommended Posts

If they are to spend massive money in splitting the line, they might as well split the line with a new spur north of Bloor-Yonge and have the Yonge line route down that new spur (possibly on Bay street) which can extend to King/Bay. This can turn Bay street into an interchange station too but the station would have to be under Lower Bay. This would allow they to rebuild Bloor-Yonge with a Spanish solution and have the University Line go around the U to terminate at Bloor-Yonge in morning rush hour.

A more sensible (for some value of 'sensible') scheme would be to create two parallel Yonge lines south of Eglinton. The current subway becomes the local line, to Eglinton only, running around to Vaughan/Midland/Wawa. Take the north Yonge part, which already has long stop spacing, and continue it south with stops at Eglinton, St. Clair (maybe?), Bloor, and somewhere by City Hall. Probably run it under Bay St as proposed above.

Extra points for using Lower Bay station--that's a foamer dream. 😁
