    The 50-Stop LRT will allow people in Scarborough and the eastend easy access to lots of small businesses. Students will be able to get to the Scarboro U of T campus. Senior can get to the hospital. The one stop subway gets people to the mall at Scarboro Town centre and that is it.

    The LRT will serve a wide population and may actually make a profit. Each ride on the One Stop subway will have to be subsidized upto $80.00.

      Thanks for the interesting fact about the One Stop $80 subsidy. If you have any more information about this please send it our way.

    a subway to STC helps no one! We would have to DRIVE to it to take it.

    I have taken transit in Scarborough for business in the daytime and been frightened- blocks are very long, transit is infrequent and stops far apart- its not safe for women. I take my car if I have business in Scarbough. Its so poorly served by transit. Its a shame!

    If it hadn’t been for Rob Ford we’d have had the LRT pretty much ready by now. John Tory’s obstinate commitment to the 1 stop subway (regardless of cost) is baffling. Scarborough residents have been sold a bill-of-goods and feel they “deserve” a subway even when ridership numbers don’t warrant it and the LRT would serve them better. For those living between Eglinton station and Scarborough Town they’ll have worse service than with the SRT.

    A one stop subway provides less flexibility to users than the current 4 stop SRT. That is not progress. There are so many areas in Scarborough which need better service and the one stop subway will not address them. Better to use the available funds to provide more stops on an LRT system.

    When are people in Toronto going to give up their subwayitis and accept that all we can get for the Inner ‘Burbs is light rail?🙄
