  1. Past hour
  2. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    Then I wanna say that perhaps TransLink doesn't want to give the impression that if they were to actually go and order them, that they would be able to carry 3 bikes (rather than the standard two).
  3. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    Pretty sure it is a standard double rack.
  4. Where they only used on rush hour trips? Which is why they only have that much mileage?
  5. York Region Transit \ Viva

    Heads up to anyone regularly using Viva. Besides the restructuring of Viva Orange and Viva Purple service in Vaughan, the new HOV lanes on Hwy 7 east of Warden will be put into use tomorrow and service to Downtown Markham will be reduced.

  10. GO Transit

    Did anyone else reply? Anyone? Bud
  11. St. Albert Sightings

    There is a bit of information on the St. Albert electric bus program toward the bottom of the following article: https://www.act-news.com/news/transit-leading-the-way-toward-heavy-duty-electrification/ It sounds like they've been pleased with the range, and the fuel-cost savings have been substantial. StAT’s diesel buses cost $0.45 to $0.50 per km; the new battery-electric units are averaging about $0.09 per km.
  12. First Student Canada

    And it's cheaper to use less decals.....
  13. Streetcar News

    Have you been notify that 4460 is ready for delivery to Hillcrest since its in CP Toronto yard now?? Are they being tow to the Barns since they are unfinished and not expected to be finish until late Jan or moving under their own power??? Since BBD is being allow to setup shop at the Barns to finish cars by TTC, I am assuming 4-5 cars will be arriving this coming week to meet this year schedule.
  14. TTC Kennedy Station upcoming bus bay changes?

    The City of Toronto always does a lousy job in terms of coordinate traffic lights and alleviate traffic congestion.
  15. TTC in the news

  16. General FML moments

    I had to sit on a flight to EHAM for 7 hours beside a baby. 'Nuff said.
  17. Horrible ride, horrible vibration, horrible quality, horrible everything. I can’t think of any good points on those buses.
  18. GO Transit

    Nobody asked you to answer them bud.
  19. I forgot to mention, the added N35 service on "Sundays" will address the most significant gap in Hastings corridor service, since it's really adding service that has been missing on Monday mornings between 3am and 5:30am. Most people during that time are going to work anyways, so it's really addressing a lack of super-early commuting service along Hastings.

  21. Operator has capability of turning off the "photocell" located on the top of the door.. so if there's somebody standing in the doorway the door will close without sensing anybody... relying on the pressure sensitive door edges for the doors to reopen. On another note is Indonesia getting the S200 Calgary spec car? Or is this just a photoshop rip off?

Most of the trolley ones are tricky so I'll save them for last. Now for TransLink to get their act together and post all the changes onto the official website instead of finding excuses to post them later (-Cough- Bus Route Buzz -Cough-). Wait a second...
  23. Spadina Subway Extension

    I don't think it has been discussed here yet, but when there is a service suspension along the extension, which TA will be providing shuttles? If YRT is tasked with shuttles for suspensions along the Vaughan portion, will they also provide shuttle service into Toronto if the suspension crosses into Toronto (ie; Pioneer Village being the incident station)? Or will the TTC be the sole provider of all shuttles regardless of where the suspension is?
  24. The unit entered service on December 7th.
  25. Today's Sightings

    Today was the last ever 41B Keele Bus. It was Bus 1587 Run 10. It left Keele Stn at 6pm and arrived at Petrolia at 715pm. The driver brought a cake and had his camera ready for the big occasion but it was just me and him there. Apparently the Line 1 extension was more big news than this historic event.
  26. 8930 was on 86 Scarborough yesterday.
  27. TTC Ride Guide

    The maps they put up are intended to stay up for some time and probably way beyond the York U GO station closure date. I guess someone in the map making department made an assumption. The last time revision found on bus shelters is dated March 2016 when they transition to the current map layout which was over a year an a half.
