- the new routes of Crosstown GO, Bolton GO, and Havelock GO
- the extensions to Lakeshore East, Richmond Hill and Stouffville
- Transit City suddenly has a pulse
- Electrification of Lakeshore opens the door to future electric VIA Rail or electric local rail in the 416
- most important - no sign of a ministerial signature yet on the Simplified Transit Environmental Assessment
- another subway to York Region - which presumably Toronto will pay any losses for, again.
- the seeming resurrection of SNC-Lavalin's divisive Blue 22, but hopefully the EA will demand it be a GO train with a Weston stop.
- Sheppard East LRT (merely preserves the Don Mills mode change and probably the Sheppard bus too) and the lack of a connection on Sheppard West to Downsview.
- no sign of any commitment to the Georgetown-Guelph-Kitchener-London line which is dire need of improvement.
- I really hope Havelock GO isn't a set-up for Pickering Airport.
There are some caveats - some projects are re-announcements (par for the course) and the GTTA has to approve it. The mention of the feds makes me nervously hope either the rumoured national transit strategy is in the offing or that it is going ahead with or without them as otherwise god knows when we'll see this stuff.
As for the provincial election, let's hope Sorbara does a better job of "booking" the money than Goodale did with the Kelowna Accord.
Steve Munro is also studying the plan - it might be worth keeping an eye on this page.
