Suburbs Left Out of Toronto Transit Plan
The Toronto Environmental Alliance has criticized the plan for not equally sharing the benefits of the $8.7 billion plan with suburban residents.
"Only 217,000 commuters would benefit from light rail under Ford's plan, which is still being considered by Metrolinx, the provincial agency that approves transit funding.
That compares with about 460,000 commuters who could have accessed light rail under the old plan, which Ford has declared dead.
TEA's ridership numbers are based on the population living or working within 500 metres of the proposed light rail lines."
