Metrolinx, the regional transportation planning agency for the Greater Toronto Area, has revealed a draft Regional Transportation Plan for transportation in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond. Subways! Streetcar lines! Freight! Roads! Trains! Bikeways! Fifty billion dollars’ worth over 25 years!
Knowing Torontonians, we will talk this thing to death and then never implement half of it, as funding gets kicked around by successive governments. But I hope we get moving on this. We need to improve things. If the census statistics I saw last week were accurate, we added a million people since 2000! (No wonder the subway always seems crowded.)
