"The trouble with the #EglintonCrosstownLRT is that the stops are going to be an average of 790m to 850m apart (almost triple the distance of the current average bus stop spacing of 300m along Eglinton); too far for many riders to comfortably walk #SmarterTracks"

"Nice job guys (#Metrolinx); one of your own consultant's reports showed that for an extra $1.066 billion we could have had a full-fledged subway from #MountDennis to ScarboroughCentre including the #LawrenceEast stop; Not! - #SmarterTracks"

"The 30-year contract to build and maintain the line will total $9.1 billion - Capital costs will be $5.3 billion, with each of the 15 underground stations costing $80–$100 million to build and the ten street-level stops $3–$5 million each"
