Some good points. I have also, by default, supported LRT because I love trains. Freight trains, subways, streetcars, if it runs on rails it really turns my crank. If I think about it though, even with tangible LRT benefits considered, there are certainly better ways to spend the first $800 mil we come across. First up, regional rail transit infrastructure. GO and VIA trains should be fully serving this city before local transit is upgraded. This will reduce the necessity of car trips and even car ownership. Correcting the one way system would be another great investment that would encourage people to choose walking, biking, and transit over a car trip. LRT would be great, but it may not be the next thing this city needs.
