Rob Ford and Transit

 

Rob Ford

I find it hilarious that the first thing Rob Ford did when he got into office was to axe Transit City. As those of you that may of not know, Transit City was a plan to provide public transportation through the means of both Light Rail Transit and improving Streetcar lines. It was also supposed to provide Bus Rapid Transit system to certain routes. This plan would have been completed by 2020. It would have help lessen some of the transit woes most of us are facing at the moment in Toronto.However, this plan was cancelled shortly after Rob Ford got into office. Not sure of the reason, but some stated it was show how much Ford disliked the idea of the transit plan. Rob Ford’s brand new transit plan is not feasible since it cost more to build, develop, maintain, and not all routes would it be ideal or solve the issue by placing a subway.
