    TTC Application Process

    Don’t worry about the failure rate. If you don’t listen to the instructors and don’t put in the time then you won’t pass. If you don’t understand something just ask questions. It’s a commitment for 25 days.

    Received confirmation of two 2018 Nova LFS' delivered to Burlington Transit last week. This order was for just two units. Not sure of the numbers. I'll be on the lookout.

    1363 has a full body rap for Nongshim Instant Noodles. It is blue and has the Toronto sign all over it. Yes, I can confirm this, it is a Christmas themed (advent calendar?)

    TTC Delays and Disruptions

    Lawrence West station closed due to collision at street level. Buses are servicing Glencairn Station instead and trains are bypassing Lawrence West.

    6670 at Slater / Bay probably doing a run of the 44 Herongate but with "#Ottawa2021" on its headsign. Was that for the Canada Games? or is it something new?

    thank you, now it looks more like the actual RTS Spokane Transit had. I did some slight alterations/fixings to the 2018 STA New Flyer XD60 and the 2017 New Flyer XD60, I added the 3 bike rack on the 2018 ones, and the regular 2 bike rack for the 2017 models and the yellow triangle on the rear, and the yellow triangle on the rear of the bus i took off of one of my pictures i took of the STA New Flyer XD60. 1861-1867 Master Copy 1862 1762 1761-1763 Master Copy i only added the first page because the other pages didnt need to be fixed. And the fixed proper windows for my 1994 STA TMC RTS (Fleet Number: 9401-9410) windows are courtesy of MCTAbus , he sent me the proper window kit which i applied to the two TMC RTS buses I did.. so i addded credits for him onto the bus. 9401 9401-9410 Master

    OC Bus Spottings

    I didn't do the Wiki, but perhaps I could offer an explanation @Enviro_1203. When OC Transpo made the order of the last batch of Inveros, only 63 units were ordered at the time: https://web.archive.org/web/20061214130606/http://www.newflyer.com/index/multiple_order_may_2006 (4440 to 4502) However in July 2006, an additional 24 units added to the purchase: http://www.ottawa.ca/calendar/ottawa/citycouncil/trc/2006/08-16/ACS2006-PWS-TRN-0009 - FINAL - Bus Acquistion Strategy.htm (4503 to 4526) Other than that, there are no difference between those two batches in terms of specification or features (4440 to 4502; 4503 to 4526).
  17. Wow I just noticed the flagpole is one of those pointy spear ones at the top. I still see some of them around Ottawa to this day are they really that old?

    It was mussing to watch 2 miWay buses taking turns trying to get into/out of various bus bays at Islington today as I was heading home. At one point, it was follow the leader. New training drivers were learning how to enter/exit the various bays while trying not to run into other miWay buses or TTC entering/exiting the station. Came close a few times. Look like 4 new drivers on each of the 2 Orion VII Hybird buses, as the windows were very dirty except for one window that was hand wash, but on opposite side of each bus near the front side to tell for sure. Got to learn how to use Islington for the next 2 years and toady was a good day to do it.
  21. These two photos were recently posted on the Lost Ottawa Facebook page. The first shows two OTC customers waiting for their buses in front of Parliament Hill in about 1960, and the second shows a young lady waiting for her bus on Slater Street near Bronson Avenue in about 1970:

    TTC 7768 and 7800 are on 12 Kingston Road but their fuel doors are taped with green tape. Not speculating anything here.

    OC Bus Spottings

    6403* was laying over at Carling and Cambridge preparing to go on a 85 Bayshore trip (run no 97-33). I boarded the bus and got off at Carling/Holland at 15:13. A good change from the D60LFRs we've been getting. To my luck, I immediately saw 6402 on 85 Lees stop at Carling and Holland and was right opposite 6403 in the process. A few minutes later, 6396 pulled up and was on the same exact route as 6402 and then went down Carling. Other spottings of the day: 4490 14 Carlington Carling/Holland 15:21 4522 on 101 St-Laurent at 08:20 at Royal I suspect 85 Bayshore run 97-33 is a school trip due to the bus laying up right after students finish school. *6403 seemed to have a set of eight LED lights that were in the interior of the bus in the front, can anyone tell me the purpose of these? I've never seen them on an artic before. Any others equipped with this?

    TTC in the news

    Didn't have much time to look inside of the bus to look at everything and most likely why I miss the shield. Wanted to do a video, but a zoo and speeches been made. New hybrid electric buses have arrived at the TTC November 20, 2018 The TTC has taken delivery of its newest-generation hybrid electric bus. The vehicle, which is currently undergoing testing, commissioning and training of operators, is expected to go into service in the next two weeks. This bus is the first of 55 hybrid buses to be delivered by the end of 2018. Two-hundred more hybrid electric buses and 60 all-electric eBuses will be delivered by the end of 2019. The Government of Canada and the City of Toronto are investing $370 million in these buses as part of the federal Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF). This fund is helping keep Torontonians moving through investments in the repair, modernization and expansion of the city's transit and active transportation networks. In total, up to $1.8 billion is being invested in Toronto through PTIF, which was launched on August 23, 2016. Today's hybrid bus is as close as possible to being a fully electric bus as it is driven by an electric motor powered by on-board battery system. The only distinction between a hybrid and an all-electric bus is that the hybrid has an on-board generator that produces electricity when needed. Also, all on-board systems such as doors, HVAC, power steering etc. are now fully electrified. The TTC is using PTIF for its green bus procurement program as part of the City of Toronto's mandate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 per cent by 2050. Together with the Government of Canada and the City of Toronto, the TTC is working to reduce its carbon footprint and operate an entirely zero emissions fleet by 2040. "The Government of Canada is investing in efficient public transit systems to help reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality," said Adam Vaughan, Member of Parliament for Spadina-Fort York, on behalf of the Honourable Francois-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. "The TTC's new hybrid buses will benefit transit users across Toronto by providing modern new buses, while helping improve air quality and protecting the environment." "Our new hybrid buses are part of the TTC's large commitment to greening our fleet and we look forward to the introduction of our first zero emissions eBus early next year," said TTC Chair Josh Colle. "With the introduction of these new hybrid buses, the TTC will provide its customers with a cleaner and greener ride while saving money on fuel costs," said Mayor John Tory. "These new buses are another example of the importance of governments working together to make investments in our transit system." These ecofriendly vehicles incorporate hybrid technology and run off power generated onboard that is fueled by diesel engines. Though the vehicles are still using fuel to produce energy, they consume up to 30 per cent less than other non-hybrid buses. PTIF is the result of the Government of Canada and the City of Toronto collaborating for a greener future. This fund improves commutes, cuts air pollution, strengthens communities and grows the economy. For more information on the TTC's green initiatives, please visit ttc.ca/green.
