  1. Past hour
  2. 4204 is currently tracking at Roncesvalles.
  3. It sounds as if it will be the next route to be converted after the 501, but I don't think that they will have enough Flexities delivered and in service to start running them right away. It should be noted that any A's available for service are to be put on Bathurst as of that date. Dan
  4. Today
  5. Do you know if the 511 will be a mixed fleet between low floors and CLRVs or will it be either all CLRV or all low floors. I’ve heard conflicting information from different places. Thanks !
  6. #3110, #3113 @ Birchmount Division.
  7. I really think the city should put up some signs with a diagram on how to turn onto Queens Quay. There's way too much confusion there.

    TTC Route interlines

    Interline routes will share a common destination to save wage, fuel and time. There is no benefits to interline two routes that's 10 km apart.

    I noticed a sign regarding this has gone up at the bus shelter outside Suncor Energy Centre on 6 Ave. S.W. (Oddly, I don't think Route 75 stops there. Yes, it does stop there for a.m. drop-off only. Duh!) The sign has a URL at the bottom — http://www.calgarytransit.com/summer2019 — and it leads to details about the route realignments in Ogden/Millican/Riverbend.

    I wonder what they heard during the previous public engagement sessions? Maybe they learned riders wanted better connections to the west and toward city centre than to Chinook? Making people transfer at Sarcee Road MAX station to get to Chinook might be a compromise the transit planners settled on. Looking at the map another way … The new proposed Route 66 is essentially a Lakeview branch of the MAX — they share the same trunk north of 33 Ave. S.W. If the point is to discourage people from using the CTrain Red Line, this routing might just do it. Also: Better frequency all-round on the proposed Route 66 (compared to the existing Route 47) might possibly make up for the slightly longer travel time if travelling to Chinook.

    That's unfortunate. I remember riding it several years ago. Drove very smooth for its age.

    Some Virginia Transit fleet rosters

    You'd have to contact 'Invision Community' (who coded the software). Also, it's J. Boic that owns CPTDB

    Lakeview residents definitely won't be very pleased, having to transfer all the way at MRU and then waiting and taking even longer to get to Chinook... Other than that, definitely like West Hills being alot more accessible - its almost impossible to get to, in any speedy manner... minus owning a car, but then again, defeats the whole purpose of mass transit

    Maui Bus (Maui County. Hawaii)

    I sent an email to a Maui Bus representative a couple weeks ago and they got back to me saying that it was indeed a Cummins L9 with 280hp coupled to a B400R

    So then would you have an explanation as to why they’re coming in as 145 and leaving as 996 instead of just stating different divisions

    I dont know whats scarier - the fact that over 60% of Calgary today is non-existent, non-suburbanized farmland in that map, or the fact that without the CTrain, its almost like looking at a transit map of Saskatoon... Still interesting to see though! Amazing what almost half a century of development, proper foresight (compared to where i used to live...) and rapid expansion can do for transit in a large city. I wonder, does anyone have maps of 1981, 1985 and 1987 from when the CTrain started supplanting most of the bus routes? I swore i saw 1987 in this forum somewhere... but haven't seen 1981 or 1985 yet.

    Major surgery done to the 2019 Route Review in West Calgary, according to new info posted on the engagement site. https://engage.calgary.ca/routereview Some of the links on the route review site are broken but I was able to parse one of them below. Comments collected during the engagement period have not been posted yet. Briefly, what I've noticed so far: Proposed changes to Routes 93 and 414 have been cancelled. Existing routes 18, 47, 63, 107 and 112 are deleted. Proposed routes 45, 51, 132 and 141 are deleted. Route 13 (revised) runs to West Hills via 46 Ave. S.W. instead of Lakeview. Has better service span than current Route 13. Route 22 (new route, revised) runs through Marda Loop to city centre, duplicating a good chunk of Route 7. Route 66 (new route) connects Lakeview and city centre via Grey Eagle Blvd., Sarcee Road and Crowchild Trail. Has better service span in Lakeview than combination of existing routes. Revised proposed West Calgary map can be seen here. The old proposed map can be seen here. There are charts for a few neighbourhoods explaining how the revised proposed changes are better now than before. I looked at the one for Lakeview and can't understand the information in the top left corner. EDIT: Never mind — I see now the travel times are relative to the starred locations on the inset map. There are also three more open houses scheduled for June, according to the site.
