  1. Some photos of Yellowknife Transit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dj_surf_lfs/sets/72157676980329561 In addition, 2486 (2004 Thomas, listed as retired on wiki) was spotted in service on New Year's Eve, as there was not enough Midis for both regular routes and the NYE Free Event Shuttles.

There will be no bus service to Newmarket Bus Terminal on weekends. When trains are not running, train-bus services will be provided on routes 65C+68C (Union-Aurora-Barrie), 65G (Union-East Gwillimbury) and 63A (Union-King City). Between Dec 31 and Jan 2, special bus services will run to help transition to the new service patterns. These routes will not run starting Jan 7. 65S Aurora GO - Wellington/404 68S Aurora GO - Newmarket Bus Terminal - East Gwillimbury GO In addition, late night trains will run on all lines except Richmond Hill Line for New Year's Eve.

  9. Have a read yourself then. Page 17. http://www.regionofwaterloo.ca/en/regionalGovernment/resources/Council/CA2016-1130.pdf 18 expansion + 39 replacement + 9 ION = 66 vehicles total, 57 will be XD40s. ION vehicles is a separate tender (see above link).
  10. Zum Airport Road (505 extension) Public Information Centre: http://www.brampton.ca/EN/residents/transit/service-alerts/Documents/ZUM Airport Rd Proposed Route-Nov2016-Web.pdf Potential terminus includes Bramalea GO, Westwood Mall, Airport LINK Station and Pearson Terminal 1, with a potential diversion to Malton GO (RER).

  13. Orillia Transit 1724 has been spotted in Quebec - http://busfanplace.com/view.php?pict=orillia1724b.jpg
  14. Was my post above not clear enough?! Simcoe County Transit will start rolling out routes to Midland/Penetanguishene in 2017, Orillia in 2018 and Wasaga Beach/Collingwood/Blue Mountain in 2019. Other than that, Greyhound and Ontario Northland has services up Highway 11 and 400, and Muskoka District runs the Corridor 11 route up to Huntsville. Parkbus offers direct services from Toronto to Algonquin, Killarney, Tobermory and Honey Harbour. I'd rather see these services connect with the train in Barrie than GO starting its own routes.
  15. Simcoe County's 2017 Budget passed this morning. Transit portion includes $895,000 for the purchase of six cutaway vehicles plus $644,000 operating budget for the Barrie-Midland route.
