$17.5B transit plan proposed for Toronto
I was pretty excited about this article from the Toronto Star
about some extensive transit system upgrades. But after reviewing the plans for GO transit
, I can't help but feel disappointed about the lack of bike commuter support or enhancement on the GO.
I've been riding to work (downtown Toronto) from Markham (approx 36km one way) and since I can't take my bike on the train back, I am forced to ride both ways. I am only able to do this once a week as I usually need to recover a bit before a longer weekend recreation ride. Ideally, I'd love to be able to ride into work in the mornings, take the train back and potentially ride to work more often. I just thought allowing bikes on the GO would make bike commuting for the folks in the burbs a bit more accessible.
Why do I feel like we are years behind what Europe is doing?
The good news is that the new TTC street cars appears to have proper bike racks
