Editorial board podcast: Rob Ford and Toronto's transit debacle

Welcome to the Toronto Star editorial board’s weekly podcast. The board is responsible for the editorials that appear every day in the Star, and every day we have a lively discussion on what to write about, and what to say. The podcast gives us a chance to share some of those debates with Star readers.

Today we’ll be talking about the continuing adventures of Mayor Rob Ford here in Toronto. And we’ll take the temperature of the contest for the Republican presidential nomination in the U.S. on the morning after Super Tuesday. Editorial page editor Andrew Phillips is joined by editorial board members Gordon Barthos, Kerry Gillespie and Leslie Papp.

One of the Podcasters stated "the Sheppard subway carries as many people as some of the bus routes". The Sheppard subway starts at Yonge and goes east crossing Bayview, Leslie and ending at Don Mills. Bus routes go right across the city. Sheppard subway, 4 intersections. Bus routes, Finch, Warden, Steeles, at least 20 intersections. Yup, makes perfect sense to me comparing a 4 intersection route subway route to a 20 intersection route. I wonder if the 4 intersection subway route was increased to another 2, 4, and/or 6 intersections would the ridership surpass that of bus routes? Andrew Phillips, Gordon Barthos, Kerry Gillespie and Leslie Papp, can you answer that?
