Suburban (“905”) schemes

Plans for expansion and upgrading of BRT services in the “905” regions, and for an LRT scheme in Mississauga, seem generally to offer reasonable value for money. In comparison with the Toronto LRT schemes, they are cheap. However, the schemes do not always seem to have been designed to address regional as well as local trips, feeding passengers onto the GO Rail system. It is also unclear why the Hurontario LRT and Dundas Street BRT schemes, which have Benefit:Cost ratios far superior to any of the TTC schemes, cannot proceed more quickly.
