Viva's new busway has opened in Markham, Ontario, stretching 400m from Warden to Birchmount. Unfortunately, it actually slows buses down, rather than speeding them up. The transit signals don't detect buses until they arrive at the intersection, and then it takes 28 seconds before they get a green light. However, there is no point of having a pedestrian countdown, since pedestrians are crossing parallel to the busway. Without the pointless coundown, it would only take 6 seconds to get a green light. Music: the Jeopardy theme song, composed by Merv Griffin and performed by me.
