I had the experience of being in a basement apartment a good distance from the the bloor subway and felt the vibrations and heard the sound of trains.

Similar to the question from Anonymous, how far down will the subway extension be relative to other lines? How will elevation differences, like the valley between Centre and Royal Orchard impact this?

Clark only goes west to Dufferin and east to Henderson. Royal Orchard Only goes east to Bayview. John Street is the best choice. Goes east to Scarborough and beyond. It goes west and joins to Highway 7. Only real reasonable choice is John Street.

John St. is huge, running through Markham (with different names) yet it doesn't even have a bus directly connecting it to Yonge St. Instead there is one bus route with long wait intervals, snaking out to Yonge through Doncaster. It is a logical east/west link.

Is there a long term plan for a northern link to connect the 2 north/south lines?

Will there be construction for a subway stop at Royal Orchard & Yonge? If yes, when will this happen? Will Thornhill Green, York Community Housing residents be affected?

John Street deserves a station because it connects west and east of Yonge street and not Clark Ave

Given that the intersections of Centre Street/John Street and Yonge Street is the "historic downtown" of Thornhill, I feel that perhaps a station there might be a good idea.
