SmarterTracks TO - Ontario Line 2

"It is my opinion that the #OntarioLine is going to be far more successful than even the planners project; especially now with the interconnection of the line with the #EglintonCrosstownLRT at Don Mills and Eglinton #ReliefLine #OntarioLine2 #SmarterTracks"

Hi All - Here is my proposal for the next step in rapid transit for Toronto and the GTA - Rapid Transit is over 20 years behind where it needs to be - Even with all of the plans on the books and currently in the early planning stages, it's not going to be enough - The black line on this map represents the Ontario Line as currently proposed by the Ontario government for completion in 2027 - The pink line represents my proposal for a second relief line (Ontario Line 2) - This line would be a metro style subway (the same as what Doug Ford is proposing for the Ontario Line) - It would run along King Street (thus eliminating the need for the King Streetcar), and extend west to Roncesvalles, north through Dundas West Station, and then north-west along Weston and Albion Roads (eventually to Brampton); and east along Queen Street and Kingston Road to connect with the Eglinton East LRT at Kingston Road and Eglinton Avenue East (as possibly to Pickering) - Of course extensions to Brampton and Pickering would not be practicle to get to and from downtown, but would be more for local service for points in between - A huge thanks to Henry Lin who created this map for me - And credit to Henry for coming up with names for all of the stops along the route
