In case you missed it: we were blessed by the lovely people at @blogto with a feature on our full covers for all those transit passes (link in bio). leave us a 🚊 below if you’re tired of seeing the same old #presto#opus and #compass cards👇
Tonight! nov. 14 - leslie woo, chief planning and development officer at metrolinx, will present our annual george baird lecture. tickets are still available for this free event which runs from 6:30 - 8:00 in the main hall at 1 spadina crescent. — @metrolinx coordinates transit in the greater toronto and hamilton area, one of the fastest growing regions in north america. by 2041, it is estimated that this region will be home to more than 10 million people.
how will #transit#infrastructure grow and contribute to the design of our cities in the future? zhengtao hu's 2015 master of urban design thesis — pictured above — explored updating the existing railway station of port whitby to promote parking, driving, and in-transit experiences the project also included a masterplan for a transit village in the adjacent area. inspired by grand central station in new york city, the main strategy would include an urban platform with a mega mixed-used transit structure on top. this mega transit facility would introduce more development to port whitby with enhanced livability as well as improved rail crossing connectivity that better integrates the north and south areas. in broader environmental terms, the facility can also help improve air quality by prioritizing #walking and #cycling.
Hey @ttcinsta this is the infuriating bottleneck of people trying to get home/to work/on with their lives at #spadinastation because you insist on placing fare inspectors at the streetcar exit while cutting off space to make more room for loading. i know #metrolinx inforced a s****d payment system that is easy to cheat, but maybe come up with a better solution? #toronto#ttc#brokenttc
