In this article, the writer discusses spatial mismatch and explores to what extent Toronto's poorest residents are concentrated in one place, while the job opportunities are concentrated elsewhere. The writer compares what Toronto appears to be presently doing - or is looking at doing in the near future vis-a-vis transportation geography planning and what it should be doing. The writer concludes that Toronto should be devoting less time to a proposed Spadina Subway expansion and more time to a complex network of BRTs and LRTs that will actually cost less money in the long run.
From the Paper:"To do all of this, of course, it is vital that time be set aside to looking at distinguished studies which explore spatial mismatch in large urban centers. A recent article by Karen Chapple is precisely one such source and the following paper will offer a critical analysis of her work as well as assessing what it means for transportation geography/planning in Canada's largest city."
