TTC service improvements

TTC votes for widespread service improvements

A key series of improvements to TTC service inched closer to reality this afternoon as the Commission board voted in favour of a a report titled Opportunities to Improve Transit Service in Toronto. Some of the highlights include the roll out of timed transfers (yay!), express bus service on additional routes, all buses and streetcars running 24/7 at no more than 10 minutes apart, the expansion of the Blue Night bus network, and all-door boarding on streetcars across the system.

It all sounds great (someone tell John Tory), but it will cost a few bucks -- $288 million to be exact. Where that money comes from will ultimately be decided by city council next week. In other words, it's too early to bank on these proposed changes, but it's certainly time to be cautiously optimistic. What do you think? Is this the way forward for the TTC?
