Had 2 "Godfather Coffees" at . No idea what's in them. But, it was a very good idea.

Don't believe me. Read Metrolinx & TTC plans. Their data says speed will be same/marginally faster (ideal conditions) as bus.

Also, TTC/Metrolinx are not planning grade separated LRT. Must stop at intersxn +stop spacing yields (their reports) bus speed.

Appreciate your interest but LRT was literally redefined by TTC to mean L(Rail)T. It is planned to op at bus speeds. Literally.

Then feed slower transit into nodes. Bus RT would be cheaper/better option than L(Rail)T to feed into nodes on Subway RT backbone.
