  4. York Region Transit \ Viva

    New schedules for the December service changes are now available, by selecting any date on the week of December 17 from the Schedule Finder. One major change that was not publicized is the significant weekend service reduction on Route 20 Jane: Saturdays: from every 14 to every 26 minutes Sundays: from every 16 to every 30 minutes This reduction may be due to a number of reasons, including: Reduced Wonderland/Vaughan Mills passenger traffic during winter Extended travel time to serve SmartCentres Terminal, Highway 407 and Pioneer Village Introduction of articulated buses Still, cutting service on a busy route connecting the newly-built subway and a major shopping centre/transit hub makes no sense to me... On the flip side, at least routes 20 and 77 are being extended to run until approximately 3xm, 7 days per week, to meet the last northbound Line 1 train.
  5. GO Transit

    As per YRT website's service change page, weekday midday and evening train service will be introduced on Barrie Line, starting December 17.
  6. Simcoe County Transit

    The Joint Procurement Program is more than buses - components such as ITS-AVL and security cameras may also be ordered under the program. Report notes that there is currently no contract for 9m buses, although one may be awarded in early 2018. If Simcoe County wants buses earlier they have to procure them on its own.
  7. Belleville Transit

    BYD demo is back in Belleville, and will be in service daily until end of year http://www.intelligencer.ca/2017/11/14/city-testing-electric-transit-bus-for-next-six-weeks
  8. Simcoe County Transit

    Under the 2018 budget, Simcoe County is proposing to apply for PTIF funding to buy 15 30' buses over the next three years, with 6 of them to be delivered in 2018. This is in addition to the 4 Vicinities ordered this year. https://simcoe.civicweb.net/document/32943/Schedule 2 to CCW 17-353.pdf?handle=627B19819B5D4A74AD8EC6F86A017D82 (page 219) This is a change in direction from the last Transit Implementation Plan update, which called for using cutaway vehicles for intra-city routes. I'm guessing that the PTIF funding (which covers 2/3 of bus purchasing costs) allowed County to explore using bigger vehicles. In addition, Simcoe County will join the Metrolinx Joint Procurement program: https://simcoe.civicweb.net/document/32914/CCW 17-332.pdf?handle=87E646CE87CF471D88C8BE5AB7527726

  11. York Region Transit \ Viva

    More detailed on the Spadina Subway change: https://www.yrt.ca/en/schedules-and-maps/ttc-line-1-subway-extension.aspx For Routes 20 and 165, layover at the south end will be at Pioneer Station. Before 2 pm, southbound buses will serve Pioneer Village, York U then return to Pioneer Village. After 2 pm, buses will terminate at Pioneer Village, then deadhead to York U to start the northbound service; to travel to school you have to transfer to another bus (Purple, 96, 107 etc.) from Pioneer Village. Weekend service between York U and Newmarket (96 Keele-Yonge) has been quietly taken off the plan Route 26 between VMC and Vaughan Mills is now peak only (original plan was Monday-Sunday) Viva Orange service will increase from every 45 to 20 minutes on weekends (this was confirmed by a service planner at VMC yesterday).

  15. 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
