UTM, always at the forefront of innovation, has announced its newest initiative to help students get from the start of their journey to the end of it in record time.
A new 21 ft extension to the IB Subway line has been proposed. This new subway line extension would accommodate and allow for up to 15 more people an hour to get their sub-par sandwiches.
The 3.4 million-dollar initiative would incorporate two new rope partitions at the end of the Subway line, and would come complete with its own state-of-the-art dirt-absorbing carpet. When The Medium consulted students on the subway line, a gluten-obsessed third-year student had this to say: “I spend so much time in this Subway line, I guess an extension is good. I’ll still probably be late to my 1:00 p.m. tutorial, but at least the carpet is nice.”
The line extension, extending from IB all the way to the Hazel McCallion library, is the biggest and boldest project introduced by the Facilities and Management Planning committee.
A spokesperson for the Facilities and Management Planning committee commented, “We are all about listening to students and introducing improvements to the problems they experience while at the University of Toronto Mississauga. By creating an extension to the Subway line, we reduce wait times by ten per cent, improve line occupancy by 30 per cent and appear like we actually do something to improve the campus experience.”
With the Subway line extension proposal likely to be approved, the university expects to break ground on this initiative sometime early 2020. Students are told to expect a new and improved waiting experience some time in 2023.
