    • The Bank Street alignment is probably one of the most "logical" north-south alignment as it doesn't overlap too much with existing alignment while serving an actual north-south axis. Generally speaking, agreed "effective" radius for mass-transit is around 600m from station. In this context, I created a map of where potential stations would be versus existing / future Trillium line stations, and there is not that much overlap. The only real overlap between the two lines is Walkley if built as separate stations. Of course it would be a REALLY expensive endeavour, but it is one of the most logical alignment for densification. I do not really believe it would kill the need for Trillium as they do not really overlap, but might remove any real necessity to double-track all of Trillium in a 30-50 years timeframe.  I also agree with @Herlsone that there is a better case for this alignment than the Barrhaven LRT or other alignments south of Carling Ave. Of course those who live in Far-Haven will suggest otherwise, but ridership ain't there, nor density. @Matth69000 which software do you use? Illustrator? Amazing work by the way.
    • Couldn't find a specific answer other than it is the responsibility of TransitNext (SNC) to provide the system. Seems like there was no announcement or decided provider as of PA's signing. Might be a question to escalate to the Stage2 team?
    • Thanks for the update. Personally I don't have much issue with the lack of padding, but can see why some might find it annoying.
    • It's been confirmed that the new batch has the same exact seats as the first batch. The padding remains almost non-existent.
