  1. YRT 1005 broke down yesterday morning while on route 303 at 9th Line and the 407. Interesting story about that bus, there’s been at least 5 times since August where it broke down. I was actually on it twice when it had to be taken out of service with some sort of coolant issue that caused an alarm to go off, and Im assuming that’s what the problem was yesterday too
  2. I’ll take your word for it, haha. Just was trying to explain that it seems like some of the TRs are louder recently. Maybe I’ll try and get a recording of what I’m talking about...that’d be easier than trying to use words to explain sounds
  3. Forgive me if I sound a bit crazy...bear with me here. I’ll try and explain this as best I can. I know the TRs have a sort of hum or buzz to them at all times, but has anyone else noticed that some of the TR sets are, well, louder? I’ve been commuting for work the past 3 months now, and I’ve noticed over the past few weeks that maybe, I dunno, 1/3 of the trains I ride have this sort of constant loud, high pitched sound. Kind of sounds like the higher-pitched hum the TRs have when they start to accelerate. But it’s at all times, whether stopped or moving So does anyone know what I’m talking about or am I legit going crazy here, haha 🙄
  4. Does anyone know if the two hybrids 3000 and 3001 are still active?
  5. Anyone else see the changes on the Stouffville line? They’re continuing to run the current buses every 10 minutes northbound, and then also have trains every hour. And southbound, still buses every half hour and then trains every hour. But I mean...I’m not complaining https://www.gotransit.com/static_files/gotransit/assets/pdf/TripPlanning/FullSchedules/FS31082019/Table71_ST.pdf
  6. Not sure if this has been mentioned here before, but I was on board TR set 575x this morning and it had the side destination sign active, as well as an external announcement saying “Line 1 towards Vaughan”
  7. Just to nitpick...only Greyhound operates the Toronto-London route From aldershot-London or even Kitchener to London, you’re probably talking about a 2+ hour bus ride with traffic and making several stops along the way. With no bathrooms on board, that would probably be quite uncomfortable
  8. Have you seen 1902 in service yet? If not, then today is it’s first day on route 1
  9. https://www.ttc.ca/Fares_and_passes/Fare_information/GTA_Zone_Fares.jsp Some very exciting news beginning August 26. 6 years in the making 😉 Now hopefully it will allow you to transfer freely to other YRT routes
  10. I believe 1905 entered service on route 20 today
  11. TTC 4132 at King and Church this afternoon, displaying “Chartered”. Here’s a quick pic I took as I was walking by
  12. Yesterday afternoon TTC 5195-5194-5091-5090 were at davisville yard
  13. Uhhh...how would this even make sense?
  14. I was on the bus tracker website today and saw some new(?) schedules that I had never seen before. Not sure how new they are and was looking on the Greyhound Timetable website and didn’t see them there. If I recall correctly, these lower numbered 5000 schedules were previously used out West These are the only ones I don’t ever recall seeing, but there may be more Schedule 5000: London 4:45am -Kitchener 6:15am Schedule 5001: Kitchener 9:40pm-London 11:10pm Schedule 5003: Windsor 7:30pm- London 9:35pm (however, I couldn’t find any London-Windsor runs)
