You know, I was just thinking about what you said, yesterday when I was on it. I thought, these train all work fine. Why do we need to get trains that 'look newer'roblombardi wrote: ↑Oct 6th, 2017 3:01 pmI used to ask the same question before, ... but after seeing NYC, Paris and London subway systems, now I ask myself why the hell are they changing all trains?
Subway systems on those 3 cities operates with different trains on different lines.... there's no need to change the whole fleet to a newer train model if the old ones can be repaired for much less, and still work okay
They are wasting tons of money that could be used on making elevators to some stations that are currently non-accessible to people in wheelchairs, instead of changing all the subway trains fleet
Even the "shitty" trains on Line 4 are fairly new, (15 years old) and it was irresponsible and a waste of resources to get rid of those and put new trains
Same thing with upgrading the finishes on certain stations... for example Dufferin... why was it necessary to strip all the walls and replace all the tiles?.... unless they had bigger issues with leaks, there was no need to spend all that money for something merely cosmetic that doesn't improve efficiency or mobility issues
Apart from looking better, there are more important things we need to focus on. Increasing service is what we need. We need more transit coverage, not better looking trains lol
