"Better bus service could help solve Scarborough's transit troubles"

"Nothing has changed over the last 45 years; similar to Phylicia Davis, my route from Scarb Golf Club and Lawrence to Bay and Albert took an average of over 1 1/4 hours each way each day for 4 years - The SRT which came later with it's 9 minute average transfer at Kennedy has done next to nothing to change that - The SSE with no transfer at Kennedy will save 9 minutes - The SRT in place of a subway has cost us about $390 million in lost time (based on an average of approx 7,000 transfers per day at $30/hour over 34 years) - The present value in lost time alone for a SSE vs LRT today will be well over $390 million"
