Toronto Subway expansion plan, 1985

Regular price $35.00 $0.00

Toronto's subway system expansion stalled in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  Money was short, the densest parts of the Greater Toronto Area were adequately served by the Yonge and Bloor subways, and the Toronto Transit Commission was experimenting with maglev lines to satisfy the rapid transit needs of the suburbs.  (The result of the ultimately unsuccessful maglev was the Scarborough RT, now known as Line 3.)

After maglev petered out, the Progressive Conservative Party decided to support an expansion of traditional subway service and produced this plan in early 1985, called “Network 2011.”  But the Progressive Conservatives couldn't stay in office long enough to enact the plan.  They lost the 1985 election to the Liberal Party, and the Liberals scrapped the whole thing.
