Here are some pics from the open house last week that I've been too lazy to upload until now

Pioneer Village







Highway 407







Vaughan Metropolitan Centre











I didn't like Pioneer Village at all and I found its street level structure to be tacky as hell. Highway 407 ended up being my favourite though I'm not sure how much I like the idea of a subway station whose sole function will be to serve as a park-and-ride station (as if the name doesn't already imply that). I liked Vaughan Metropolitan Centre too (TTC and City of Vaughan staff at the event said they want people to colloquially refer to it by its acronym VMC) and the City of Vaughan has a secondary plan to have the area surrounding the station turn into a new downtown area gravitating around Toronto, which is pretty exciting

TTC Issues 30% Tunnel Design RFP for Relief Line South

Quote:
Yesterday the TTC formally released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for tunnel design work of the Relief Line South. More specifically, the RFP is to "complete the Concept Design Report and Preliminary Design and Engineering for the Tunnels and associated facilities for the RLS, together with a cost estimate and project delivery schedule, to 30% design completion." This RFP marks a substantial step forward in the detailed design work for the Relief Line, which is tentatively scheduled to begin construction in 2025 and be complete by 2031.

For planning and design purposes the Relief Line has been divided into two segments: The Relief Line South, which runs from Osgoode Station to Pape Station, and the Relief Line North, which will run north from Pape Station, possibly under Don Mills Rd (though the alignment is far less refined). The Relief Line South is being spearheaded by the TTC, while the Relief Line North is primarily a Metrolinx project. The Relief Line South is approximately 6km in length, while the Relief Line North's length depends on what alignment and terminus is ultimately chosen.

Mayor John Tory, councillors urge TTC to introduce time-based transfers
In an open letter to TTC CEO Andy Byford released Thursday morning, Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle asked that TTC riders could enjoy multiple transit trips on a single fare.
Toronto Star Excerpt

TTC riders could soon be able to enjoy multiple transit trips using a single fare.

In an open letter to TTC CEO Andy Byford released Thursday morning, Mayor John Tory and TTC Chair Josh Colle asked the transit agency to look into introducing time-based transfers, which would allow transit riders to hop off and on subway, bus and streetcar lines an unlimited number of times during a specified period after paying only once.

The policy would only apply to those who use the Presto fare card, who currently make up about 16 per cent of all TTC passengers.

Byford said he welcomed the request to look into time-based transfers.

“This is something we have long wanted to do, but the sticking point was always the available funding. I’ve instructed my team to expedite the work to meet the required deadline,” he said.

On funding, Tory told reporters Thursday that he will back the measures required to pay for the cost of introducing the new transfers.

“I wouldn't have written the letter if I wasn't to support, obviously, the funding in the budget to get this program underway in 2018,” he said.

Tory said starting with Presto users only will make it easier to implement time-based transfers and also encourage the use of Presto, which the TTC is in the process of migrating to.

Toronto’s newest subway line is now just one month away
On Dec. 17 at 8 a.m., the first subway train will head south from York Region, opening the six-stop extension.
Nov 17, 2017
Toronto Star Excerpt

After growing at a snail’s pace for decades, Toronto’s subway system is set to burst through the city’s northern border.

In less than one month, the Toronto York Spadina Subway Extension will open with six stops on Line 1 up into York Region.

On Friday, Toronto Mayor John Tory, Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca and others gathered at the new Downsview Park station to start the clock ticking down to what Del Duca called “probably the single greatest transit achievement of my lifetime.”

“It’s amazing to see what we can achieve when we work together,” Tory said of the three levels of government, adding that a 15-year wait since the launch of the last subway extension is “not acceptable to the people, it’s not acceptable to us.”

York University growing to the point where 50,000 people, most of them students, visit every day without rapid transit shows past political failure, he said.

The new York University Station will replace a parade of buses into the heart of the campus, while Pioneer Village Station will take students, faculty and staff to York’s northernmost buildings.

Toronto’s Transit Chief Named to Lead New York’s Troubled Subway

Quote:
With New York’s century-old subway system in crisis, plagued by delays and in need of major repairs, Andy Byford was brought in from Toronto on Tuesday to take over the agency that oversees the city’s buses and subways.

Mr. Byford will take control of an agency that has often proved intransigent and opaque and dominated by a political dynamic in which elected officials have often used the transportation authority to serve their political priorities at the expense of investing sufficiently on the nuts and bolts that could have averted the crisis that has engulfed the transit system.

“We are thrilled that Andy is going to lead NYC Transit during this time of great change,” Mr. Lhota said. “Our transit system is the backbone of the world’s greatest city and having someone of Andy’s caliber to lead it will help immensely, particularly when it comes to implementing the Subway Action Plan that we launched this summer. In order to truly stabilize, modernize and improve our transit system, we needed a leader who has done this work at world-class systems and Andy’s successes in Toronto are evidence that he is up to this critically important task.”

What is going to happen with the line 3? Will it merge with LRT or with line 2?
