That’s the question Calvin Henry-Cotnam attempts to answer as he sets up this page on the world wide web. As Torontonians consider the TTC’s proposed Transit City network, Calvin notes that they have very little precident to consider close to home. Transit City is not a subway network, and it’s not a streetcar. In bridging the gap between the two transit options, Torontonians only have the Scarborough RT and the Spadina, Queens Quay and St. Clair streetcars to consider, but these don’t describe what’s possible, or appropriate for the new system.
So, Calvin pulls examples from across North America. Profiles of the networks operating in Calgary, Minneapolis and St. Louis are currently available, and more will follow, to help Torontonians imagine what is possible.
