If you thought the TTC was feeling a little, let’s say close, in 2011, you weren’t imagining things.

The TTC was packing them in last year with 500 million rides — 13 million more than transit officials expected, resulting in a $22 million surplus, according to the system’s consolidated 2011 financial statements.

In part, that’s because a fare hike failed to result in as many lost riders as transit officials expected, said TTC chief financial and administration officer Vince Rodo.....

A sustainable transit system? Miraculous!

But then why is it taking so long to get things done?

you can blame ford's budget cuts for that one. The TTC is already cash strapped and he cuts their budget even more, meaning that the TTC becomes even more expensive.
