Making Tracks to Torontonians

Making Tracks to Torontonians, a new study examining the costs and benefits of the subway extension proposed by Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in December 2010, compared to the light rail transit plan that is already underway with funding on the table was released last week by the Pembina Institute.
Toronto Environmental Alliance has issued a press release, and created a map which shows the neighbourhoods that would benefit from the development of 8 light rail transit lines vs. the neighbourhoods that would benefit from subway expansion.
