    The CAD system has been on voice fallback for three days now, due to issues with the CAD system. It essentially reverts the system back to open radio channel (like it was pre-CAD). This is also why the real time is not working.

    I'm not sure where you got this info, but it must be someone on days off....

    Trains are dispatched from both garages on weekends - Red line is typically from AG, while Blue line is typically from OBMF.

    Today is the big move day - Stoney is being populated with all of it's buses needed for service starting Monday throughout today.

    General Route Discussion and History

    The route 13 is part of the SW service review that's starting engagement shortly - I'm sure there will be changes to the 13, but likely nothing significant until implementation of the SW BRT.

    Stoney Bus Garage

    I’d be surprised if there’s any sort of open house for this (or any) bus garage in the foreseeable future. The reality is, outside of people that frequent boards like this, there wouldn’t be much appeal for the general public to go see a bus garage and shop - the CNG part is good to talk about, but in real life, it’s just a few extra gas pumps. It’s just a bunch of buses parked in lines, a mechanic shop like most others, and an attached vanilla admin space. The open houses at OBMF get a few more people because the CTrain adds an extra wrinkle, but honestly aren’t all that well attended. It’s mainly employees that bring their families.

    In theory, it would get refilled every day in the service lane. Although I imagine with the very slippery conditions it gets used much faster than usual.

    I don’t think CT has enough 40 footers to pull every artic off the road without cutting service. Maybe pulling off certain routes only.

    You should call in a complaint to 262-1000. Then there’s at least a chance someone follows up with the operator.

    There's literally thousands on the waiting list for 69th Street. It's a no brainer they'd make their money there on reserved, rather than make nothing on empty reserved elsewhere.

    Refurbished SD160 Tracking list

    And from what I’ve seen and heard of the refurbished cars, the issues with running them with the 8s aren’t insurmountable.

    General BRT discussion

    Nenshi mentioned at the MAX Purple opening that they were looking at “MAX Magenta” for the SW line...at the same time mentioning he hated that name.

    I believe there’s two routes - one goes to Saddletowne (157), the other to Northpointe (161).

    CTrain - S200 (series 9) cars

    I wouldn't say 'most', but definitely half (69, Westbrook, Sunalta - the grade separated ones). It's more likely you've got DF underground or above ground because you're building the concrete infrastructure anyway. That's definitely a major factor.

    I'm not sure there's a lot of frost heaving or mud ties underground in Montreal or Toronto, or above ground in Vancouver.
