TTC’s New Initiatives

Yesterday was Labour Day, marking for some the end of summer and here in Toronto the end of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE). Each year the CNE is filled with rides, games, children, hotdogs, donuts, and the Toronto Transit Commissions (TTC) plans for the coming year.

A New Interior

This year wasn’t quite as exciting as years passed. This year the excitement and hype around new initiatives was a new interior. Manufactured by Bombardier up in Thunder Bay, ON the new subway is due to make its first appearance in 2010. The new subway will feature a modern look, which includes:

  • Digital signs indicating the next stop and which sides the doors will open on
  • Announcements for the next station
  • Fully open trains offering open access between cars
  • Closed circuit cameras

Agreed the fleet of streetcars is aging but I hope the TTC plans on bringing forth new lines, new street cars, and modes of transit that make Toronto more efficient.

It would be even better if we could more subway lines out to the burbs + another east /west line
