Greater Toronto is planning, and doing it big, and long-term.  This report from Ryerson U looks at the situation.

Part 1 draws Provincial cash ($32B) for new transit in the form of subways, LRT and so on, much of it outside of downtown Toronto, and into the burbs.

Part 2 looks at these burbs, and how to plan for compact growth, mixed-use and transit-orientation, so as to get a return on transit investment. Affordability enters the discussion too, in the form of the “missing middle” of gently dense housing forms.
