My Proposed MBTD Express LRT

Hi All - I revised my plan for an elevated rapid transit line serving Toronto, Mississauga, Brampton, and Durham Region to an LRT (MBTD LRT), but; I was not satisfied that an LRT will do the job, so I have decided to make it an Express LRT with limited stops instead – The line will have at least one stop in each community and connect with every major rapid transit line along its route - This will increase the average speed significantly and should be enough to accommodate the distances required - I am calling it MBTD Express LRT

The first phases of the lines will interconnect with the following:
- Meadowvale GO
- Hurontario LRT
- Brampton Züm BRT (3)
- Pearson Airport, UP Express, and SmartTrack LRT
- Weston GO
- Jane LRT or Beltline Subway
- Toronto-York Spadina Subway
- Yonge Street Subway
- Don Mills (Relief Line) Subway
- Lawrence GO/SmartTrack
- McCowan Road (Scarborough) Subway
- Markham Road LRT
- Crosstown East LRT
- Sheppard LRT or BRT
- Pickering GO

The line can eventually be extended east to Oshawa and Clarington/Bowmanville, and west to Milton
