Union isn't all that bad... a little packed but unlike Yonge-Bloor subway the people come and go in waves.

Plus it's improved a bit since they added stairs to the platform from both sides of Bay and from the east side of York Street.

Nice pic.

The human bottle neck each morning, transitioning from GO trains, through Union GO concourse into the subway or PATH via TTC subway concourse at Unio. In a few short years, this nightmare will be over, once multiple temps are completed.

Agreed. How is it fair that Toronto's infrastructure gets hammered on a daily basis by people who pay taxes outside of the City?

There is undoubtedly the mass immigration factor that's been continuing since the late '80s, but it's also about another big factor. A good number of these people are from the 905 region cities, which is the problem of these non-Toronto (the Metro) places being poorly planned and a wasteland of nothing but houses and nothing much to work with. It is so foolish, not having balanced city planning, no mixed-use zoning (commerce/work mixed with residential) but instead purely endless houses and cul-de-sacs - not even the old suburban grid system was used. That is why they are all relying on Toronto (especially downtown) for work and job/educational opportunities. Disgusting. These types of areas, even the 416's own far suburbs, will not age well as they are one-dimensional and results of pure greed.

On top of what I had commented about, is the factor of our govts simply not allowing or wanting to continuously build and extend the transit systems - TTC and GO for regional. This is what happens.

I am one of the people in this photo every day. Union might be a little annoying at rush hour, but it isn't actually THAT bad. Those people are all moving, albeit slowly. It's life in the city.
