Toronto Transit Museum plans push forward


If you're anything like me, the most exacerbating thing about the TTC is not the fare hikes, B.O. infused morning congestion, or unscheduled coffee-breaks.

No--it's that each day I ride the TTC like an idiot, unable to identify a 1938 streetcar from a 1947 electric trolley.

Embarrassing, I know. Luckily, the TTC is sensitive to my plight, moving forward with plans to establish a Toronto Transit Museum and Visitor Centre. Just what commuters have been asking for!

Yesterday, TTC commissioners approved setting up a steering committee to research funding, possible board members, and to set up a non-profit corporation. Next steps will cost $138,000.

The concept for the centre involves displaying historic vehicles and exploring the science, history, and future of transportation.

If only the TTC would consider raising fares again and decreasing service during peak hours--then they'd really be tuned in to what commuters need right now.
