TO's Transit Future

As Winnipeg ramps up for it's first rapid transit infrastructure project, Toronto rolled out it's latest phase today: 93 new buses.

The future of public transit in Toronto is an ambitious plan called Transit City which includes
seven new streetcar lines that will stretch into suburban areas of the city. (Also see The Star Plan rolls out new era in transit).

Also from the Star is an interesting series of commuter maps. Based on 2006 census stats they detail how Torontonians make their daily commute.

Also on the subject of other cities and their rapid transit, the Times has an interesting graphic comparing NY and other major US cities and how the fares stack up. The city is currently slashing the funding for many services, transit included.
