  1. Past hour
  2. According to page 153 of the December 14, 2017 board meeting report, there is a project titled "2019 Community Shuttle Replacement" to replace 39 EOL shuttles with 39 low floor shuttles. This will be a major improvement to accessibility. Project will cost 12 million dollars Net cost to TransLink only 1.2 million
  3. ETS History

    I agree. Looks like RDT.
  4. ETS History

    Yeah, pretty sure that's not ETS. Looks like Red Deer..
  5. 2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    Nonetheless it's still an Official TransLink document. As far as I know, they are still refurbishing Orions.
  6. ETS History

    While browsing Kijiji, I came across this bus located in Edmonton that was mistakenly posted in Vancouver. Can someone here help me identify it? It doesn't look anything like the ETS fishbowls I see on Google. BTW it's free if anyone wants to pick it up https://www.kijiji.ca/v-other-heavy-equipment/vancouver-downtown-west-end/free-old-city-bus/1318668360?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  7. Buses for sale

    What about a FREE bus? Located in Edmonton (but posted in Vancouver for some reason) if anyone wants to pick it up https://www.kijiji.ca/v-other-heavy-equipment/vancouver-downtown-west-end/free-old-city-bus/1318668360?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  8. 2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    Just because that's what they're for on paper doesn't mean it's what will happen. But what kind of shape are the Orion Vs in, anyway? Theoretically, high-floors should stand up better than low-floors structurally, but it also depends on usage and initial build quality.

  10. Today's Sightings

    22-250 was on the 103 this afternoon. Legendre's 22-269 was on the 138. Frontenac's 31-178 was on the 123.
  11. Buses for sale

    2001 CBB Polar that appears to have been some sort of transit bus (has an ad on the interior and a destination sign looking thing). Unsure of operator as I've never seen this red and black stripe livery. Don't think it was BC Transit. https://abbotsford.craigslist.ca/cto/d/2001-ford-e450-bus/6413631265.html
  12. 2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    Sorry if this is small, but this is where I got my information from. Page 153. Thus, it will be a 1 for 1 replacement
  13. GO Transit

    New Track 1 being install for the Weston Underpass for the KW line. Not sure if the plan is still alive to build another GO only platform for Weston Station.
  14. MiWay's Central EZ-Riders run full service assignments seven days a week, the Malton ones run tripper service M-F. Shaun noted 0701 was driven on Dec 15th but 55 shows last assignment was Nov 24th. Where did Shaun spot 0701?
  15. Spadina Subway Extension

    Sure wouldn't be me. I will do the new section only. Here a quick tour from the new bus terminal to the out side of the subway station. Its not 100%, but good enough to go into service. The Mayor and Andy where there as will with Andy saying good bye to his employees.
  16. General FML moments

    Had one 4-5 year old (let's call him Damien) who was booting my seat Asked his parents, no change FULL RECLINE, problem solved, and parents pissed
  17. Barrie Transit

  18. Transit Windsor

    Forgot to post this one before from the CBC http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windsor/transit-windsor-ridership-up-5-proposes-all-day-10-minute-service-for-busiest-route-1.4422915

    Sorry, my bad, mistyped
  20. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    USSC is now 4ONE, most use the names interchangeably. Meanwhile, the count is off by one... that is not "proof of the engine being refit to have an ISX." The S50 repowers on vehicles meant to take a V-style engine were among the only repowers I'm aware of that required a seating configuration change (due to the giant cylinders configured straight versus more, smaller cylinders in a V configuration). This made the S50 a very tall engine... I would not use this unique engine and the handful of repowers a decade and a half ago as "evidence."
  21. General FML moments

    I sat next to one from FTL to Chicago and never hears a peep. I asked how old he was; "six months and this is his fifth flight.", think of all the frequent flyer miles he will have when he grows up!!
  22. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    Oh, my bad.
  23. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    You appear to have misunderstood my post. The list of vehicles I posted were in service during the past week. So at least once between Monday morning and Friday afternoon all the buses I listed were out in service. Just because it's in the yard now doesn't mean it wasn't operating during the past 6 days.
  24. TTC Application Process

    Be confident and have very specific examples for the questions being asked. E.g. tell me about a time you had to multi task? how did you handle a dispute with a coworker?
  25. TTC Orion VII Retirements

    I wouldn't exactly say that 7617 has a working tracker, it probably would have showed up at Eglinton Garage.
  26. Spadina Subway Extension

    So who plans to be on the first end-to-end train from Finch or VMC?
  27. Spadina Subway Extension

    TTC Ghost Train Northbound at Finch West
