Torontonians can expect a series of reports in the next few weeks on the viability of John Tory’s plan for the transit system, following up the initial SmartTrack Ridership Forecasts presented on Jan. 19.
It’s intended to provide answers to the question of whether Mayor John Tory’s plan for Toronto’s transit system will succeed, says the report’s head researcher.
“Our next report will be a similar high-level report on our preliminary findings on some of the downtown relief line options that people are currently interested in,” says Eric Miller, director of the University of Toronto’s Transportation Research Institute.
That report is expected in a couple of weeks and is to be followed by a similar one about the Scarborough subway extension.
The SmartTrack Ridership Forecasts summarizes the efficiency of the SmartTrack system. Estimations of the city’s employment rate, population and frequency between stops were used to determine the number of commuters per day.
