Default Wouldn't it be nice if someone *asked* you what you want in a tram?

Over here, the TTC are trying out this "engage the public" thing. It will never last but hey, it's a novelty.

This site lets you click on photos of existing streetcars in Toronto and ones operating in Europe and elsewhere so you can say "I hate that there aren't enough seats" or "I like that it has a lot of headroom" or whatever.

NIR did this with their new railcar fleet. IE didnt. Now, I cant engage in half truths or lies but I understand that those who have been on both 29K and the 3CK NIR train prefer the latter.

Forget the LUAS. What you really want to be consulted on is the trams for Metro West.

Well, I say trams. They should be trains. Well, I say Metro. But I really mean LUAS.

See? The circle line exists after all.

Well if the RPA would like to buy and adapt it for their "consultations" I'm sure TTC would sell - they are very stuck for cash. But they are also crap at contracts so RPA would probably end up getting paid by TTC instead of paying them
