The influential and brilliant transit blogger Steve Munro has had a crack at the barely-floated, barely-there idea to use the Metrolinx ARL line as part of a subway-lite. Karen Stintz and Ana Bailão have asked the TTC to sit down with Metrolinx and study their idea.
Munro’s analysis is, as always, deep. His conclusion, in my words: maybe in the west end.
There are many sticky issues, but the most pressing, it seems, is space: there is not enough capacity on the tracks, what, with the UP Express running every 15 minutes and all that.
