Our sixth issue features a Q&A with Mayor David Miller -- we challenged him to articulate a vision for the future of transit in this city. Toronto transit advocate Steve Munro lets loose on the failings of the TTC and its leadership, while supplying a plan that could re-shape the transit system on the cheap. Other article topics include the plethora of subway construction plans from the early 1900s to the mid-1990s; the legends of Lower Bay subway station; how to turn Queen Street into a streetcar and pedestrian-only zone; how a small group of riders short-change the TTC; a look back to 1968 and 1985 when bomb threats to the TTC caused public fear; and an essay in defense of our subway's "public washroom aesthetic."

Contributors include: Ed Keenan (Eye Weekly), James Bow (Transit Toronto), Sarah Hood (co-author of The Unknown City), Misha Glouberman (Trampoline Hall), Shawn Micallef of [murmur], Sam Javanrouh (Daily Dose of Imagery), Rannie Turingan (, Gayla Trail (You Grow Girl), Adam Krawesky (, illustrators Fiona Smyth, Julia Breckenreid and Joe Ollman, and Chris Hutsul (Toronto Star columnist and illustrator).
