Subways and LRTs vs SmartTrack

"I would have preferred the three-stop extension of the Bloor-Danforth subway over SmartTrack for Scarborough, but planning for a bastardized SmartTrack is well on it's way - The city will have a total of up to 8 new GO stations; the west end will have an extension of the Eglinton LRT to Pearson Airport; and the proposal for Scarborough is for an extension of the Eglinton LRT to UTSC - Studies show that adding these new GO stations will actually slow GO down and discourage ridership - I have been saying this all along, but I guess any new transit is better than none at all"
