Properly done, in year 2050, perhaps TTC/HSR/GO can even operate a fleet of self-driving cars as uberPOOL-style suburban connectors to the nearest subway/LRT/GO station. Last mile connectors to public transit.

Tap a button on your phone -- -- and nearest best-route-match driverless municipal carpool/vanpool diverts to your location, delivers small groups of residents to bus/LRT/subway/GO station, quickly in 5 minutes. Better than infrequent near-empty large suburb buses whose bus stop is a 10 minute walk away.

So, there'll probably be municipally-funded uberPOOL-style services by 2050. Slowly converting suburbs to better sustainability in humankind history, using less resources to move more people faster, cheaper, more profitably, more efficiently.
