The agenda for the March 5th and 6th Toronto City Council meeting features a very interesting item for TTCriders.  Council will debate changes to the governance structure of the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).

The TTC Board is on track to be shaken up a bit. Mayor Ford’s Executive Committee is forwarding this report to Council for consideration. As reported in the Toronto Star several City Councillors have different ideas on how to best reconstitute the TTC Board.

Stay tuned for an update once Council has voted on reshaping  the TTC Board.

On March 21st the report and recommendations of the Sheppard Transit Expert Advisory Panel will be presented for Council’s consideration at a another special meeting. This meeting could be the last hurdle to Council approving a complete plan for the expansion of public transit in Toronto.

The Expert Panel was struck at Council’s last special meeting on February 8th to review transit and funding options and recommend the most effective means of delivering rapid transit to the greatest number of riders with the funds available for Sheppard Avenue.
