King St. business owners lash out at TTC streetcar pilot project
‘We’re . . . shocked as we look down King St. and see no traffic except streetcars. There’s just an unease.’
Dec 24, 2017
Toronto Star Excerpt

Streetcar travel times on King St. have improved and drivers are facing minimal, if any delays on nearby streets, but the streetcar pilot project remains divisive going into 2018.

While the pilot project is hailed for achieving its goal of providing a faster and more reliable transit route with city councillor Joe Cressy writing there is “no going back”, not all are satisfied.

The Star spoke to four stakeholders in the restaurant industry and one residential advocate Saturday. Here’s what they said:

Todd Sherman, president of the Urban Dining Group

“We have seen a dramatic change in the character of King St.,” said Sherman, who runs four restaurants within the boundaries of the pilot project. “The pedestrian traffic has dropped considerably, the access to King St. has become very difficult — which in fact has cannibalized a good percentage of our business.”

Bruce Holmberg, sous chef at Il Fornello

“No, everything’s the same,” Holmberg said when asked if the restaurant had been impacted by the pilot. “We cater to the theatres, so everyone who goes to the theatres comes here . . . We’re pretty much booked every night.”

He said he has noticed that other restaurants have been affected: “I guess a lot of them are smaller. We’re 250 seats, so there’s never been parking on King St. for 250 cars. So I guess a lot of the smaller restaurants would have people that would drive up, park and go in, that would be my reasoning for it.”

Here we go again. While Bombardier is still messing around with delivering new streetcars.

Quote:
Nearly one-third of old streetcars were unable to leave yard due to frigid weather: TTC

...The Toronto Transit Commission, which handles local service, said nearly one-third of its old streetcars broke down and were unable to leave the yard. It was among the worst mass failures in recent years, and buses had to fill the gaps. And the operator of the regional GO Transit service said a suburban commuter line faced extensive delays after a crack was found in a rail track designed to withstand a 60-degree temperature swing...

...The old streetcars, which are gradually being replaced with more reliable models, have long struggled with winter. The cold can lead to issues with the pneumatics that control the doors and a sanding system used for friction. Of 140 remaining old streetcars, 45 could not get going on Thursday morning. Although larger numbers failed in the worst of the cold spells a few years ago, the fact that fewer of them are in service now means the failure rate this week is worse.
