This site is meant to complement my main site is intended to be a more general source of information; and a place for the exchange of ideas, comments, and concerns regarding traffic and transit issues in the GTA

This site focuses on my proposal for a "SmarterTracks" plan to address the current and future requirements for transit in Scarborough and the surrounding GTA - It is intended to present the plan in a cleaner and simpler fashion, making it easier for everyone to look up specific details and information without having to search through what is becoming a voluminous number of posts and pages, information, comments and opinions, on the other site

I am for changes and improvement to all forms of transportation and transit (including roads and expressways) for the entire city, but; as a former long-time resident of Scarborough, and a proponent of subways, my biases will be towards connecting and completing the Sheppard Avenue and Scarborough (McCowan) subways - It is my intention to later try and tackle the needs for the rest of the city, but; as I am completely new to blogging and only started this blog from scratch on Feb 2'16 and, there is a lot of time involved in researching and building these sites, I will gradually extend my reach into the rest of the GTA and surrounding communities over time

Following is a link to PDFs with maps of the current proposal based on the Scarborough Transit Planning Update January 21'16 and the ten (10) phases of my proposed SmarterTracks plan - - If you download and scroll through the maps, you can see the difference between the two plans and the progression of the various phases of my plan

Please be sure to leave your comments and own ideas before leaving the site - For those that are against any new subways or new subway extensions of any kind; please read some of my blogs and posts before you open your pie-hole; then bring it on!!! - I will be more than happy to debate the issues with you! - P.S. - Don't bother telling me the DRL should come before any more subway expansion - I fully agree! - If you read my blogs and posts; you would know that the DRL and Scarborough subways should have been built over thirty years ago, with the DRL opening one month or so prior to Scarborough [NOT THE SRT]
