Will the stairways have bicycle runnels? It's a straight and usually grooved guide next to a stairway so people can go up and down without having to lift and carry their bikes. You just guide your bike wheels into the groove and push it up or squeezed the brakes and walk it down.

What about wheelchair and stroller runnels or ramps? When the power goes out, and are unable to use the elevators or escalators?

Will there be more than one elevator per platform, between levels? In case one elevator is out-of-service, people could still use the other elevator, to keep it being accessible for all.

Ditto for the escalators? More than one escalator in each direction, total four (two in each direction). Would be better if all the stations be centre platforms.

When will we see preliminary station designs. Will all the stations be exactly the same colour (like the rest of the line) or are you planning to make wayfinding easier by having stations that are different colours and, therefore, more easily distinguished from each other?

How many new LRVs will need to be purchased, will the increased ridership mean increased train length? What is the maximum train length permitted on the line?

I am wondering if the cost savings are priority for putting the Ontario Line One above the ground in Lesliville, how come the cost saving is not a consideration here and there is a large portion underground proposed while there are swaths of land that can be used? How come the speed is of more concern here but not for a 2-3 KM stretch of Lesliville?

It is all well and good that the LRT will provide connections between TTC, Up Express, MiWay, Go Buses at Renforth etc but having to pay twice to move from system to system is expensive for workers on a tight budget. Will Metrolinx recommend to the Government ways to mitigate the cost of a trip between two systems, such as a trip from Martingrove to Mississauga City Centre?

Where does the earth go that you excavate from the tunnels when they are being built? Can it be deposited somewhere to create a feature such as a toboggan hill or another similar legacy leisure feature at a local park ?

Will the stations include knockout panels, so that neighouring current or future buildings could connect with the stations underground (or even elevated)? Even provide knockouts for any next century rapid transit lines, to provide easier connections?

can't you pick any other colors for the urban tapestry of this extension instead of orange, grey, and black?

Suggestions: green, blue, red, beige, white

Hold it. isn't cut-and cover tunnels considered as low-cost tunneling?
something like the Canada line in Vancouver for example?

I believe in one of your meeting a few months back we were advised that we will see some station designs in the fall, but nothing has been shown yet.
