Toronto, de par son agence Metrolinx (environ l'AMT), est en train de se doter d'un plan de transport intéressant et ils en sont au stade des consultations. Je crois que ça peut en intéresser quelques-uns.


Attention, le document est plutôt long (environ 100 pages). Des graphiques à la fin expliquent bien le tout.




Fait intéressant, on transforme le réseau de GOTransit en un RER : Plus de fréquence et ce dans les deux sens!


(Si ce n'est pas dans la bonne section, svp déplacez!)

(p 7)

The average car on the GTHA’s roads transports just under 1.2 people during the peak period — in essence, consuming a tremendous amount of energy and wasting significant amounts of road space to transport empty seats. At full capacity, a standard 40-foot bus is about 10 times as space-efficient as a typical North American car. Research also suggests that a significant percentage of trucks circulate empty or not fully loaded. Unlike what is the case with almost every other scarce resource, road users receive little information and few price signals that would help them optimize their use. As a result, demand often exceeds supply, even when supply is expanded.

The shifting age distribution of the population will have a direct impact on mobility and transportation issues. The percentage of people with a driver’s licence begins to decline after age 59. Without access to viable alternatives to driving, many seniors may become isolated, limiting their access to the services and social connections they need.





L'essentiel de leur vision (p 14)


The distance that people drive every day will drop by ONE-THIRD compared to today. We will accommodate 50% MORE PEOPLE in the region with LESS CONGESTION than we have today. On average, ONE-THIRD of trips to work will be taken by transit and ONE in FIVE will be taken by walking or cycling. 60% of children will walk or cycle to school. There will be SIX times more bike lanes and trails than today. ALL transit vehicles will be accessible. Customer satisfaction with the transportation system will exceed 90%. A single fare card will be used for ALL transit trips throughout the GTHA, and ALL fares will be integrated. By transforming the GTHA’s transportation system, we will help meet the province’s Go Green Action Plan for Climate Change. Per person, our emissions from passenger transportation will be HALF what they are today.

Directing growth and development to intensification corridors is a key objective of the province’s Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe as well as municipal Official Plans. The RTP supports this objective with new transit service along several corridors including:

• King/Main Streets and James Street in Hamilton;

• Trafalgar Road in Oakville;

• Hurontario/Main Streets in Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon;

• Highway 7 and Yonge Street in York Region;

• Finch Avenue, Sheppard Avenue, Eglinton Avenue, Jane Street, Don Mills Road and Lakeshore Road West in Toronto; and

• Brock Road connecting Downtown Pickering to the Seaton community.

These corridors have tremendous opportunity to accommodate growth and development, and achieve a transit-supportive density and urban form.
