    So an inside source has told me that HSR isn't too pleased with their Novas. The jist, back to New Flyer for the time being.

    Honestly, it seems the more people speculate/talk about it, the more likely it could happen. To be honest, at this point I can't say I support amalgamation, not governmentally, and not in a transit sense. The goals/visions are all too different. And back to transit, I worry amalgamation will mean one big Milton Transit - everyone here knows what that means. I doubt forced amalgamation will lead to better service and provision, but instead cheaper, worse service in what used to be Oakville Transit and Burlington Transit, with no real improvement anywhere maybe other than an or some inter-city routes. Put simply, I think each town, particularly Oakville and Burlington, are doing just fine for now. Amalgamation would change that.

    Where did these route ideas come from? They're very similar to my own plans that I was gonna pitch in March. But I'm certain it's simply OT learning year over year. These are good changes! 15 to Rio Can was kinda unnecessary, but to Bronte GO would be an interesting test. Once one of the Novas come in, is 4101 gonna be first to go? Or 5105?

    Do you think maybe that's on purpose cause they'll drop the LF soon, or no? This is an amusing observation.

    Cause maybe someone from Oakville would know why we are borrowing a Welland bus. I just thought it was interesting...

    ALMOST RETIRED BUSES (LAST RIDES)

    A. Partly to make it obvious B. So it stands out as different because it's not about active buses or specific fleets. It's highlighted essentially, because its an odd thread.

    ALMOST RETIRED BUSES (LAST RIDES)

    No worries 😁 This page is essentially a 'heads up' page if anyone hears a retirement coming up, whether it's in a year or a week, the more time we have to get out there and fan said bus, the better! Enjoy!

    A Welland Transit bus, 1144 running in Oakville today. Anyone know why? Looking sharp, though.

    Council is, in Oakville fashion, indifferent with regards to transit. Transit isn't of interest this term. It's always just that thing they send money to year over year to get people to GO trains and do their part on the environment. It is the fact that Oakville Transit isn't really that important, that OT doesn't receive the funds and long-term support it needs to grow. For YEARS, Oakville Transit's key goal has been to, someday, have 15-min or better frequency across the network, and work towards a grid (not really possible but okay). Unfortunately, Oakville Transit is always more or less told by the Town, 'do the best you can with what you have'. Essentially, Oakville Transit does have a lot of great, grand ideas.... But the planning is based on what OT has, as oppose to what they SHOULD get. This has consistently stiffled progress. Aforementioned in addition to poor ridership stats year over year, the Town thinks of Oakville Transit as more of an appendage than a tool. For the time being, Oakville Transit is trying, but your observations are correct. The lack of 'how to' is greatly out stripping ambitions. Essentially, over promising, and under performing. This, leading to a cycle of further neglect and criticism. It's NOT Oakville Transit's fault, but unfortunately it isn't anyone's solution either.
