With Scarb subway extension not scheduled to be complete until some time before 2030, and SRT to be decommissioned around 2026, I ask if Scarb transit riders will be stuck on the bus for years - Ford said he hoped subway would be built earlier than 2030, but no guarantees

"The #SheppardSubway is not a failure to those that use it every day; the Sheppard Subway is underutilized because it didn't go far enough; it needs to be extended East to McCowan Road and then South to Scarborough Centre; then watch ridership grow exponentially #SmarterTracks"

"It's not about those ridings - 24% of all transit trips originating in Scarborough want to travel to the rest of Toronto, not just downtown - Similar figures would apply to those in the rest of the city - A subway loop would do more to service those riders than those along the route"
