Torontonians love talking transit. City Hall has debated – repeatedly and at length – a multitude of opinions on what really constitutes “the better way.”
But when it comes to actually building new transit lines, the city’s track record isn’t so good: Questions about funding and even route choice tend to limit the shovels in the ground.
Global News has examined some of the transit proposals the TTC and Metrolinx are studying and put together the interactive graphic below. Getting the numbers is harder than it sounds: There are innumerable iterations of transit lines, their costs and their routes – some vaguer than others. We’ve used the clearest, most up-to-date information we could find.
Use the graphic to plan your own rapid transit system by selecting from existing transit proposals. Check the calculator below to see how much your plan would cost and tweet your results.Click here to view data »
