  • Looking at Ways to Improve Transit on Dufferin Street

    The TTC's 29 Dufferin bus route is one of Toronto's most highly used surface transit routes. Over the years, we have secured improvements on this route by introducing longer articulated buses and through service changes to improve speed and service. However, this important transit corridor is also under pressure from a growing number of current and future developments along the route. If fully built out, the Dufferin Corridor north of Bloor St W to just north of Wilson Ave could...

  • New Bloor/Lansdowne GO Station Update

    As I mentioned last month, Metrolinx announced a new GO Station on the Barrie Line at Bloor and Lansdowne. The station site itself is subject to further analysis of corridor service implications and a commitment by the City to provide an accessible, weather protected, pedestrian connection to Lansdowne Subway station. In light of this, I moved a motion at City Council that requested the City manager and CEO of the TTC to report back on the financial and logistical conditions imposed...

  • Bike Share Toronto Arrives in Ward 18

    I am happy to announce that Bike Share Toronto is opening 15 new stations in Ward 18, including one at the Bloor GO/UP Station, over the next two weeks. As Toronto Bike Share expands with over 120 news stations across the city, moving into Ward 18, with the third highest bike usage in Toronto, just makes sense.  The addition of this new infrastructure helps to transform the Bloor GO/UP Station into a true multimodal transit hub for residents who need...

  • City of Toronto residents asked to help keep streets safe by pruning shrubs and reporting vegetation growth near traffic signs

    The City of Toronto is reminding residents to prune trees and shrubs on their property to ensure that they don't impact roads and sidewalks, keeping travel routes passable for those with mobility issues. "We are asking residents to help by making sure they take action on their own properties to ensure that all road and sidewalk users can be safe when travelling in our communities," said Councillor Jaye Robinson (Ward 25, Don Valley West), Chair of the City's Public Works...

  • Toronto's New 10 Year Cycling Network Plan

    Earlier this month at City Council, I voted to adopt the City's Ten Year Cycling Network Plan. The plan will effectively double Toronto's cycling infrastructure over the next decade by filling in gaps, improving our current system, and expanding the network to new parts of the city. This network expansion is supported by an annual $16 million cycling infrastructure investment, a doubling of our current investment levels. Of note to Ward 18 residents, the plan supports our existing efforts to...

  • New GO Barrie Line Station Announced for Bloor and Lansdowne, Davenport Diamond Petition Gains 2,000 Signatures, New City Staff Report Release

    As many of you are now aware, I have been working alongside a coalition of 9 different community groups and other elected representatives in advocating for the best possible community outcome from Metrolinx's proposed Davenport Diamond project. On Tuesday it was announced by the Province that a GO Train station at Bloor and Lansdowne on the Barrie GO Line is a part of their new station plans. This is a strong victory for our community and it wouldn't have been...

  • Improving Road Safety on Dovercourt Road

    On June 1, 2016 I hosted a joint community consultation with neighbouring City Councillor Mike Layton (Ward 19, Trinity- Spadina) to discuss a proposal to turn Dovercourt Road between Dundas Street West and Queen Street West into a one way road. This proposal came forward as a result of safety concerns on this narrow but busy section of Dovercourt and a petition to turn it into a one-way road. At the meeting there were some concerns regarding turning Dovercourt into...

  • Toronto Seeks Public Input for Important Decisions on Transit Plans

    The City of Toronto is asking residents to be part of the important decisions that are being made to improve Toronto's rapid transit network, including current plans for SmartTrack, Scarborough Transit, the Relief Line and Waterfront Transit Reset. Torontonians and residents of the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area can provide input on these projects online or at public meetings the City is hosting in partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission and Waterfront Toronto, and in co-ordination with Metrolinx. Details about...

  • Bike Lanes on Bloor Pilot Project

    At this month's meeting of City Council, I voted in favour of a pilot project to install separated bike lanes on Bloor Street West between Shaw Street and Avenue Road. This year long pilot project provides an opportunity for City staff to collect the data they need to inform our discussion about cycling routes in our city.  The shape and width of Bloor Street West changes along the 2.6km pilot project stretch. City staff have proposed a mix of painted...

  • Enhancing Public Safety at College and Gladstone

    My office has received numerous communications from residents, pedestrians, cyclists and motorists about the unsafe conditions at the College Street and Gladstone Avenue intersection. In response, I directed City staff to investigate potential solutions to improving safety conditions at this busy intersection. In late April, I held a joint community meeting with staff and residents to explore the potential solutions. Staff proposed adding a traffic light to the intersection as a means of controlling flows in each direction. As part...
