    London Transit Commission

    https://globalnews.ca/news/4380353/pilot-project-aims-to-improve-driver-safety-on-london-buses/ I believe this is starting today. According to the article, 3 buses have had driver shields installed. I’m sure this is a welcomed pilot project....it’s about time they did something to help driver’s safety

    Greyhound Spottings & Photos

    Unfortunately I couldn’t get a picture, but 1301 was in London today on schedule 5508 and it has a full ad wrap for the Shaw Festival. Was a bit of a surprise when I saw a light-blue greyhound bus driving by haha

    VIA Rail Canada

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/london/accident-via-rail-trains-cancellation-1.4689212 Another major via rail cancellation. All trains today between London and Windsor have been cancelled. I gather that they’re shuttling people between London and Toronto, but for those travelling between London and Windsor, you’re out of luck. Of course, it always seems stuff like this happens on days I am travelling with via rail 🙄

    TTC Application Process

    As Many people have recently graduated university, I was just wondering how old some of you guys are who applied and how much experience you had. Not for me, but I know a few friends who are interested but is 21/22 too young?

    Greyhound in the news

    How much sense would Robert Q make though? I don’t think they have any large buses, only their 10-seater vans and I think ~20 seater Cutaways. I guess it’d depend on the demand for this service

    I’m not sure of the bus plans that you are asking about, but Here’s something I thought about. I posted a few times about new interior seating arrangements and layouts for the D40LFs, and I found it interesting they redid the interiors of all the older buses as well. The only two D40LFs I’ve noticed with the “old” seating arrangement left are 475 and 102. So with that being said, perhaps the oldest d40lfs will last a little longer? It wouldn’t make sense to redo the interiors for ~4 months of service right? EDIT: I was looking on New Flyer’s website and for previous years they put out press releases announcing a London bus order. There was no such announcement for this year. Anyone else able to find information? As for traffic with Dundas being closed, there have been several days where it’s been an absolute disaster, especially during PM rush. Queens backed up, King jammed, same with Ridout. Richmond between Queens and King is an absolute mess with construction as well. I’ve also noticed that traffic is worst on the hot sunny days for whatever reason. But what I think is the worst is that they no longer have the real-time display boards at the downtown stops, so I have to rely on the scheduled times through google maps and hoping the bus shows up on time. Because trying to navigate on LTC’s real-time website is an absolute pain in the ass LOL
