Grand River Transit
I’m always amazed when people suggest “just change jobs”. Like everyone works at McDonalds lol.

Now will that be faster or slower than 76 -> 10 -> ION?  It's a race!  (And ION had better win, as I wants me to be regularly riding that train.)

New Phase 2 idea: extend to Conestoga College, instead of Cambridge. They probably want it more, and how cool to have an LRT from Conestoga Mall to Conestoga College!

Oh believe me, I've dreamt about variations of that.  Somehow use Balzer to connect to the old Budd Automotive / Lear Seating track to the Homer Watson & Manitou area, then center-run down Homer Watson out to the college and into Cambridge via Fountain St.  Screw Sportsworld, its a perpetually failing retail area...

Any sign of the Operator building being built?, or did they change plans and using the one close to the mall?  Thank you.

There's a deeper pit behind that mound of dirt that is laid out for a driver facility
