Transit Toronto - Content: A History of Subways on Bloor and Queen Streets (8058 words)
This situation did not remain, however, as declining ridership and the cost of serving the low-density suburbs pushed the TTC into deficit, but even as the City was providing subsidy for the construction of the University subway, there was no pressure to move the Bloor line back onto Queen.
If the TTC had gone this route, trains to Keele at St. George and Woodbine at Bay would be on the same level, and passengers wouldn’t have to wait between levels in order to be sure to catch the first train to their destination.
After six months, the TTC ran the Bloor-Danforth and Yonge-University subways separately for a trial period, and ran a survey to establish which type of operation was more convenient for passengers.
