i like how Spadina is almost a red line for most of the day.

this really shows that the TransitCity lines are going in the right places. Jane, Don Mills, Finch and Eglinton look pretty busy.

I just noticed there's no 512 St. Clair either, haha, I'm just being nitpicky though. This is awesome.

That's because the TTC doesn't have enough streetcars to provide service with.

But Morningside seems rather quiet while Dufferin, McCowan, and Finch East seem more deserving of LRT than those.

Morningside is the easternmost north-south arterial capable of handling higher-order transit. It's justified, especially due to the density at its concession points (West Hill area; UTSC; Morningside-Sheppard big box) and the 116 is usually overcrowded during peak hours.

I used to live on the northern end of that route until late last year. During peak going southbound, it was packed by the time it reached Sheppard. So much so that it often doesn't even stop at Sheppard. An interesting thing about that bus route is that it passes by 5 high schools along it's route on Morningside alone, so the majority of riders ends up being highschool students. It also provides the most frequent service along Eglinton East, east of Kennedy Station.

I can pick out a few routes missing on the map.

Moreover there are some strange gaps.

The veicle count seems off to me - it's low at peek, if that's including all subways + streetcars along with buses.

Really cool either way though!
