Does not matter how far in the future, you should buy now before prices will explode. It is known everyone wants to be on subway line.

This will be so useless.

The train can't handle that additional capacity and a subway from Richmond Hill would take like 1.5-2 hours to get to Union

You will have to hope and Pray going and coming that there are no delays, signal issues etc.

So people aren’t going to be working from home and downtown deserted? What’s the point of this? ;)

Expect to see a lot of development along Yonge north of Finch now.
Values will increase as well.

There are some major projects near yonge and steeles coming up.

They need to construct more lines within the city rather than simply extending lines.

Agreed. The Finch side of Line 1 is over capacity and gets extremely packed by the time it gets to Sheppard. I would rather pay more and use the RH Go Train. For a fact, I live in North York and takes the go train from Oriole (station beside IKEA). I'd rather pay $2 more for my sanity and not buy coffee/lunch instead.

Need to have express train service like New York. That’s not happening here.

Seems like a waste of time and money. Look at the Vaughan metropolitan station, sounds great on paper, completely ineffective to get to downtown. You are better off driving to the Go train and going from there.

I am all for expanding public transit and creating capacity, I don't see how this achieves either on a subway line that's already beyond peak capacity. Maybe someone can enlighten me with a thoughtful answer taking into consideration the nuance of where we are at now and where we will be in the future.

I am sure it will make for a magical sales pitch at the presentation offices that are about to start popping up tho :D

Oh what difference does it make in a few years? It will be more accessible for people who live in the region and less of commute time and a connection to hwy 7.

In 10 years they will get to Center St and by 2030 they will be at hwy 7.
We have highest taxes and slowest infrastructure construction in the world. :(

Eventually, though probably not in our lifetimes, it will be extended to the Arctic Circle.
