TTC - The Lifeline of Toronto

Transit nerds... be prepared to gush! This recent promo video by the TTC is full of fun stuff for you (and it's pretty cool even if you're not a self-proclaimed transit nerd).

Once you endure the first part (the streetcar repairs), the video highlights:
- the future of the street car in Toronto
- a behind-the-scenes look at the new high-tech transit control center
- explanations on how automated subway control might one day be implemented
- plans for more CCTV safety camera systems
- the York University extension, and
- the future (some say pipedream) city-wide LRT network.

The many time-lapsed video segments are really neat, too.

Watch it while you can, it might get the YouTube copyright infringement yank at any time. Runs 11mins. Enjoy!
