Streetcar Map for Toronto Suggestion

Streetcar map for Toronto by Matthew Blackett

At the risk of being ostracized by fans of the site Spacing Toronto for suggesting that the site could be better if it wasn’t just about talking about how wonderful Toronto is and questioning why the rest of the world hasn’t come to the same conclusion I’ll mention an interesting post about a redesign of the Streetcar map for Toronto. Matthew Blackett has already taken the time to talk with TTC Chair and staff and has visualized a response to the current map which does not show something that bothers him, “people have no idea which subway stations have streetcars routes passing through or which streetcar routes intersect with one another”. His map above tries to make that more understandable. I’ll be curious to see how the map may evolve through comments to his post and how he might turn the map into reality at some point.

    Don’t mind us Toronto folks, we have an inferiority complex you know.

    thanks for the link! You will not be ostrasized — we are critical of the city, we just need a better attitude collectively.

    What we need is to kick Miller out, along with the over-sized communist city council that believes that every city worker should be getting 100K per year. Seriously, the council is what, 40+ people for a city of 3 mil? wtf!?

    Yes, Toronto has an inferiority complex. And it deserves it (and many other bad, bad things).

    If you want cool in Canada, go to Montreal. If you want hip / green, go to Vancouver. If you want overachieving / rampant capitalism, go to Calgary or Edmonton. If you want the _nicest_ people in the entire country, go to the Maritimes. If you want the funniest/wittiest, go to NFLD.

    Come to Toronto if you want a LOT of government that believes in it’s mission to run your life for you, high-taxes, high (compared to the rest of Canada) crime rates, pretentious whining, parochial mindsets, horrible traffic, crazy homeless people, aggressive pan-handlers, and overpriced air-fare to anywhere (actually that last one is a Canada-wide issue).
