"Here are my proposed changes to Ford's proposed Ontario Line:
- Cancel the Ontario Place leg of the Ontario line
- Extend the Ontario Line along the original Relief Line route towards Dundas West Subway Station
- At almost half the cost of a traditional subway, add a second line (Ontario Line 2) along King Street thus replacing the King Streetcar
- Extend this line to Exhibition GO with driverless shuttlebuses servicing Ontario Place, the waterfront, and the convention centre grounds
- This Ontario Line 2 could eventually be extended west to Sherway Gardens and Port Credit, and east along Kingston Road towards Guildwood GO, Pickering, and the rest of Durham
- Use driverless shuttlebuses along this east leg to service Harbourfront, the Portlands, The Beaches, Bluffers Park, and other key destinations along the route"
