Let’s Move Forward Now with 24 Stops for Scarborough

2018-07-06T20:58:16+00:00Tags: , |

Council decided this week to move forward with a 17-stop LRT extension of the Eglinton Crosstown from Kennedy Station to the University of Toronto's Scarborough Campus (UTSC).

Council Ignores Evidence and Chooses 1-Stop Subway Over 24-Stop LRT Network for Scarborough

2018-07-06T17:07:51+00:00Tags: , |

As many of you have heard by now, Council has opted to continue work toward a 1-stop extension of the Bloor-Danforth subway to the Scarborough Town Centre instead of a 2-line, 24-stop network. I wrote extensively about the options in my previous newsletter to you. It is unfortunate that, yet again, Council decided to not ask for relevant and important information [...]
