SmarterTracks - Toronto

"We can all talk until we are blue in the face - The city and the province are limited in what they can do because they have neglected transit for so long; they can only afford to do so much to try and catch up - The best we can hope for in the way of subways within the next 10 to 15 years are; the Relief Line, the SSE, hopefully an extension of the Sheppard East to Scarborough Centre, and (if York Region can be convincing enough) an extension of Line 1 to Richmond Hill; the rest will be LRTs and BRTs for now and into the foreseeable future"

"My suggestion is that they bury Airport Road and build the new hub closer (walking distance) to the terminal buildings"

"like car and bike share programs, autonomous vehicles offer another alternative to planning and existing transit options - Niche markets might be: Between a Sheppard BRT route and the Toronto Zoo; between LRT stops, Woodbine Centre, and the Woobine Racetrack and Casino; or between Hurontario LRT stops, Woodbine Centre, and the Woobine Racetrack and Casino"

This is Phase I of my SmarterTracks plan for rapid transit in the West and Central areas of Toronto [this map excludes most of Scarborough (you can find my plans and proposals for Scarborough at] – This plan is based on the city's latest plans and proposals which have not been finalized as of this time - Phase I of my plan for the West and Central areas of the city does not differ from the city's plan other than adding an LRT connection between the Crosstown East LRT at Toronto Pearson Airport and the Finch West LRT at Humber College, a driverless shuttlebus connecting the two adding LRT stops with Woodbine Centre and the Woodbine Racetrack, and calling for a much more aggressive timeline - The driverless shuttlebus should be built by private industry
