  • Bike Share Toronto and downtown subway relief - Spacing Toronto
    Metrolinx and the City intend to attract by putting more bikes outside of subway stations their way forward is clear Think of bike sharing as an inexpensive modular smaller scale version of the downtown relief line and act accordingly Prioritize installing and maintaining bike supply at stations on Line 2 that encourage people travelling east and west to disembark before Bloor Yonge or St George and instead grab a bike for those aforementioned first and last kilometres of their journeys But then and this is crucial support this effort with bike lanes and foster it with marketing that shows how bike sharing can become a vital part of a subway rider s daily transit mix in general and as a savvy way to bypass the downtown stations of Line 1 in particular Because though bike sharing is by no means the sole solution to transit overcrowding Toronto s program has a wealth of untapped potential All that s needed along with this new investment is a strategic shift in how Bike Share Toronto is viewed by its administrators and its thousands of potential members Photo by Amanda N Sherrington Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts REID Laneways as shared spaces Spacing presents transit wayfinding events in Mississauga Toronto on Tuesday Wednesday EVENT Connecting The Dots of transit wayfinding in the GTHA Remember the greenhouse gases Tweet More posts by Todd Harrison 4 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy George 4 months ago I have been saying this since day 1 The Bixi rollout as small as it was limited the number of stations and bikes at important locations Needs to be at all subway stations and near to at least 1 2 of all streetcar stops Needs to be at all major tourist locations with enough spots to support the demand during events i e skydome Needs to be at the beginning and end of all major bike lanes and at certain intervals along the way Needs to be on the island Needs to be near major parking lots Outlying stations at important places that are distant from the core Ex Zoo Science Centre Beaches Humber cycling bridge with appropriate allowances for time to get to them There should be a way for BIA s residents associations employers and community groups to fund their own station if expansion to their area is not likely The number one example I have of how ridiculous the current system is there is a station at Jarvis and Bloor which was perfect when there was bike lanes on Jarvis but now that there isn t bike lanes it should be moved to Sherbourne so that it is next to the subway station and the separated bike lanes yet it s still at Jarvis how is this convenient to anyone Richard 4 months ago Todd Maybe you can help me

  • REID: Slowly moving towards speed reductions in Toronto - Spacing Toronto
    ahead to examine the implications for Toronto Finally the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee has also put in motion a Road Safety Plan for Toronto It is partially inspired by the Vision Zero initiatives originating in Sweden and now being implemented in New York and elsewhere which generally include speed limit reductions of one kind or another This rather chaotic situation with multiple sometimes contradictory initiatives happening all at once is a reflection of the fact that a lot of the momentum for these speed limit reductions is coming from individual voters and individual councillors In New York City both slow zones and the universal speed reduction were led in part from the top by mayors and city staff partially in response to lobbying by well organized groups like Transportation Alternatives In Toronto however City staff have not taken the lead on these issues nor has a mayor it has been individual councillors responding to what they hear from their own local voters to specific tragedies that get media attention or to what they see happening in other cities As I wrote in the print edition of Spacing a key advantage of universal reductions is equity When individual neighbourhoods have to take the initiative most often it is neighbourhoods of single family homes usually well off ones who are best able to organize Neighbourhoods with more renters or new Canadians are more likely to be left behind Equally many people more often low income live on arterial roads and these are the ones that are most dangerous Universal speed reductions will benefit a lot more people more equally Universal reductions can always be followed by specific infrastructure measures Already in a positive move Transportion Services has reduced lane sizes and curb radii standards which will discourage speeding as these are gradually implemented with re striping and road reconstruction Traffic light cycles can be adjusted A toolkit of additional speed reducing infrastructure changes can be created to be implemented where speed problems persist As with everything in Toronto politics the process will be messy but it seems that one way or another more and more streets will get slower speed limits The question really is how many and how quickly it happens Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts REID Busting some myths about pedestrian collisions REID Laneways as shared spaces REID To press or not to press a guide to pedestrian buttons REID That s a nice laneway but it s no woonerf Tweet More posts by Dylan Reid 5 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Yu 6 months ago I suppose the NY default speed limit would be 25 miles h rather than 25 km h It is about time reducing the speed limit of downtown area s local roads would be a great start I do not care what that limit would be for

  • Book Review From The Stacks: Reservoir - Spacing National
    and furthers his ideas of natural versus artificial In almost every photograph there is a reference to the human scale a lone worker a cactus pieces of garbage or a guardrail But often this key reference point is hidden in the geometry or the texture of the image As viewers we naturally look for something to help us better understand the context of a photo As such Princen is playing with the audience taking them on a hunt We are forced to view photos in their entirety and attempt to fully understand their meaning In the opening of the book Princen is interviewed by fellow artist Stefano Graziani Much of this conversation is focused on the layout and design of the book which I thought was a very interesting idea Princen explains the spatial qualities and importance of the book itself a book creates its own space instead of forcing you to relate to a particular space With this in mind it is easier to grasp the concept behind the layout of the book One photo per spread isolates and equalizes each image and the muted grey tones and large square format matte paper simplify the book to its bare bones Leaving the viewer with nothing but themselves and the images Princen also discusses the relationship between photo and photographer images use photographers as their instruments they keep on returning in slightly altered formed they are updated something is added This is powerful statement given the subject matter of each image the altering of the natural landscape by human intervention The relationship between us and the earth is constantly changing Through globalization development economics and increasing population we are reshaping the earth Princen photographs humans at a small nearly imperceptible scale yet his subject is the vast and daunting impact
