GO RER/SmartTrack and Scarborough Subway Extension Options

I have always maintained that the best route for the Scarborough Subway Extension is the most direct route, and that McCowan Road is the correct route, however; cutting the route back and limiting it to one stop is a mistake for the following reasons:

- Both the McCowan and Lawrence and McCowan and Sheppard Stations are critical to the completion and future success of a Sheppard Avenue Subway connection to Scarborough Centre
- The cost to do it later will likely be the same or more than doing the entire project properly now

I value the Three-stop Scarborough Subway Extension more than SmartTrack – SmartTrack can wait!
