  1. Orillia Transit

    Orillia Transit to add a sixth route starting January 2018: http://www.orilliapacket.com/2017/10/03/new-route-to-come-online-in-january-due-to-419k-in-pre-budget-approval
  2. GO Transit

    GO Buses will continue to serve York University Bus Loop after Line 1 subway opening, for the time being: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/york-university-ttc-station-changes-1.4344711
  3. York Region Transit \ Viva

    A couple of things re: 2018 Service Plan. Viva Purple will still serve York University on weekdays but only during a transitional period. The long-term plan is still to replace it with conventional Route 100. There is no mention of how long the "transitional period" will be. Originally included in the Spadina Subway Transit Strategy, the launch of Viva Silver has now been pushed back to 2022. There is no mention of how often Viva Orange will run between RHC and VMC. If frequency will remain the same, this will mean a dismal 45-minute frequency on weekends - a significant service cut from the 15-minute frequency offered on Viva Purple. Riders may be in for an unpleasant surprise... For those curious about the proposed UTSC route, it will originate from Cornell Terminal (subject to further analysis). https://view.publitas.com/york-region-transit/2018-transit-initiatives/page/94-95

    ...or take Orange to VMC then Subway (or 501 or 20)?

  6. Collingwood Transit

    710 and 711 have both entered service. 700 was recently refurbished and was out on the Blue Mountain Link. No Xcelsiors were out - now that there's enough reliable "short buses", one wonders if the Xcelsiors will be used less often, given that no route in Collingwood really seems to need them...
