    The Random Thoughts Thread

    I don't know what it is with my school and daily random groups. I get that they want to use that method but they may want to use it less, quite frankly. I love sitting where I want. I mostly pick the same seat because that's what I'm confortable with. I love working on my own as that's where I excel. As for groups, we do actually contribute equal amounts of work into our project, however, when it comes to presenting it to the class, I'll usually not present because I am too anxious (I have an IEP outlining this accommodation). In that case, I'll get one of my groupmates to take over my part and answer any questions that come out of it.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    We actually have seating plans in most of our classes. Some classes we can just sit where we want to. I hate working in groups. I am always stuck with people that do absolutely nothing, and I have actually failed projects because of this. I prefer working alone. I am pretty shy, and will avoid being picked to answer questions.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Does anybody else's teachers do random groups for seating every day? I don't like it. The math classes in my school have a method where they use random groups every day and make those groups work on problems on whiteboards for the whole period. I hate that because I end up being too self-concious and shy to attempt the problem in front of my group (I'm bad at math). And to make it worse, my group ditches me sometimes which means I'm alone to solve problems. So math class usually ends up being 75 minutes of dreading having a teacher unexpectedly come and help you in front of your groupmates. I also don't like when random groups are done just for the sake of being with different people every day. I find that it really doesn't do much for me. Some of my classes are like this. The only saving grace is that if I'm absent one day, I'm gauranteed to find my seat quickly in case the teacher randomly decides to change a normal monthly seating plan the day I'm absent. Also, am I the only person who prefers sitting alone or in self-chosen groups and working on booklets instead of doing these "activities" in random groups that are basically designed to make you collaberate?

    in a way it is good in the event if there is a major recall like nova hybrids.

    TTC's CAD/AVL "Vision" System

    Don't know which operators you talk to but all the ones I know say they hate the VISION system and that they prefer the TRUMP.

  12. My thoughts on VISION and TRUMP. VISION from an operator's perspective: I like it because all the info I need is right there. No more scrambling to find information. VISION from a customer's perspective: I don't like how the TTS calls street names wrong. The stop announcements are also very quiet. TRUMP from an operator's perspective: I hate it. That's all I have to say. TRUMP from a customer's perspective: I like how the announcements are nice and loud and all the announcements are pronounced right (most of them, at least).

    It's unlikely to see hush mode removed - they are built into the buses after all, aren't they? But it's possible future orders might not have a need for it.... and yet, having said that, did KCM not just order some extended range BAE hybrids? So maybe the working assumption is that they'll find a use for the feature... somehow... somewhere.

    TTC Orion VII Retirements

    What is a SOGR? Sounds like Russian Cottage Cheese.
  17. Yesterday: 22-392 was on the 105 in the morning. It wasn't tracking. I took 22-386 on the 90-W around 17:30. Today: 22-201 was tracking on the 105. Based on when the tracker said it departed, I missed it by 5 minutes.

    Today's Sightings

    Today 30-248 and 31-122 were on the 162. 24-254 and 26-072 were on the 105. 29-154 was on the 90-E at Vendome around 17:45, doing a regular LS run. I understand the random buses on SN routes, but 29-154's appearance is a quite odd.

    4022 is definitely the car at Hillcrest. There is tape holding the front light in. The car super shiny on the sides with the sun light. One of the best C's I have ever seen.

    Missing in Action buses

    1665 is currently sitting at Hillcrest beside CLRV 4022.
  22. I think at this point it would be best to let the speculation lie and just wait to see what happens. We've been over this a million times without reaching any definitive conclusions, and we know that there are internal plans to reactivate some cars, so at this point we should just sit back and wait for the fruits of their labour to materialize.
  23. The weather is much warmer so it is more likely for alrvs to return. Also don’t forget 4221 can still run even if it doesn’t track

    Outside of the tunnel, does the HUSH mode have a use, or will it be rwmoved.

    The Bus (Honolulu, HI)

    The Gillig HQ in California. Just came off the assembly line a few days ago along with the new orders from Kalamazoo, Seattle, Atlanta, Salem (Oregon) and Milwaukee. It was posted up on the Gillig bus fans page. Once they’re ready, expect them to catch a ride aboard Matson ahead of their debut this Summer, possibly to phase out several of the 300 series Phantoms.
