    Image removal

    These photos were not taken by a member. They were taken right off of the social media belonging to the TTC & DRT. I don't believe they go with the guidelines. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Metrolinx_6201-a.jpeg https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Durham_Region_Transit_7102-a.jpeg

    Mobile Fare Payment & TVM Replacement

    4 and 38 are probably busy enough to satisfy any need to observe the new fare system’s behaviour during peak times.

    That's sad to hear. It's only a matter of time before the 1163 gets sold off. I haven't seen it since last month.
  10. Because the current bus fleet plan allows for enough vehicles to also cover the bustitution of several streetcar routes. Or did you not notice that there weren't streetcars running on Bathurst or Dundas for some time now? Dan

    Eglinton Crosstown line

    Yes, but..... In those cases, the operator is not responsible for setting out the operating plan, or frequencies of the line, or providing supervision of the service on the route. That is contingent on the agency, and the contractor just provides the staff to run the service and maintain the vehicles. In this case, the TTC will be designing the operating plan, will be figuring out the frequencies and providing supervision for the route. Yes, they won't be supplying the maintenance of the line or the vehicles, but they will be doing just about everything else. The original plan was the vehicles would be dressed up in their final livery in the weeks before the opening of the line. I don't know if this has changed, but I don't have reason to believe that it has as yet, Mr. Verster's words notwithstanding. Dan

    Eglinton Crosstown line

    Don't think it's necessary to press any notion that people should know what the score is on TTC colours/branding too hard when City Councillors aren't being kept informed

    Same with 0251.....

    General Subway/RT Discussion

    It isn't though - I saw it this morning, and there were no maps anywhere - not in my car at least!
  19. I won't deny that they would work better here due to the terrain, and that the general populace don't care. I just wanted to get that off my chest. Having C40LFRs here wouldn't be the end of the world, and I'm sure it would work out well with parts commonality between them and our D40LFRs, and hey it would mean STC (mostly) would have the same livery for all vehicles. Would if I could. But i can't so i won't.

    OC Bus Spottings

    I saw a DD on the 101 Bayshore around 7pm a couple weeks ago. If I had known it was rare I would have made note of the fleet number.
  23. Mechanical yes, space not so much anymore, at least for dead storage. The Commission recently acquired a surplus rail yard/container terminal in the far west end from Canadian pacific. Its adequate to store vehicles securely until McNicoll division opens....if they were worth hanging on to, which they’re not.

    TTC Route interlines

    Is there a current route interline with the 145 and 996, lately I’ve been seeing a deadheading bus still signed up as a 145 Humber bay express at Humber college then leaving as a 996, today it was unit 3369. Or is this just something simple like covering a run for overtime edit: seems to be a signage error as I saw another coming in to Humber full of passengers

    TTC 2252 GM Fishbowl Charter

    What is the preferred way to present your charter ticket - should we print it out, or would showing the image on one's phone be fine?

    OC Bus Spottings

    Looks like that same bus might be doing the 11:30 am trip back from Bayshore to Lincoln Fields as well. I've seen DDs on the 101 (and the 103), but usually only during peak periods, and usually they're from St-Laurent (or Orleans, in the case of the 103) in the morning and from Moodie in the afternoon, so I'd say that's a rare spotting.

    Eglinton Crosstown line

    Will there be penalties imposed by metrolinx on the TTC for excessive delays due to operation error and unjustified delays like their is for YRT contractors ( TOK, Miller, Transdev ) as said by bus medic the logo is simply just to state ttc is operating it and foamers can consider that lucky, they really only had to put it in text “operated by the TTC” as seen in this image of what YRT does As for the wording of a 10-year contract, that can mean anything with the way the provincial government is running and with future plannings, it very well could go to another operator in 10 years time, look at ION it’s being operated by a contractor completely separated from the region of Waterloo. Transit is unfortunately turning into a for profit business
