Scarborough Subway Extension- 3 Stop SSE vs SmartTrack

May. 26, 2017

"The original intention of GO RER was to improve frequency of service and speed GO up - The 3-stop extension of the Bloor-Danforth subway line would have provided a significant improvement in service for Scarborough - The added SmartTrack stations to the GO lines will slow GO down for all passengers travelling north of the new stations; and the omission of the 2 subway stops negates any improvement that the 3-stop subway extension would have provided"

"I think a 3-stop SSE and the Crosstown East LRT would be a killer combo - We do not need any SmartTrack stops in Scarborough"

"The 3 stop subway extension is the way to go - SmartTrack slows GO down and reduces the viability of the Scarborough Subway Extension"

"This is what I have been saying all along: “SmartTrack will slow GO down, and subways will speed things up!”"
