  1. Not a particular sighting per se, but I’ve noticed the past 2 weekends I’ve been in the area around 2PM there’s been a TTC hybrid waiting on Finch at McCowan road, parked just in front of the McDonald’s displaying “Malvern Division”. It had the orange cones behind it but it didn’t look like it was broken down or anything like that I think it might be a driver shuttle as that’s the changeover spot for route 39
  2. Bit of a bump...from what I’ve seen in my times going outside most if not all the 10xx’s have been refurbished. Now onto 1101-1120, and I spotted 1114 today looking pretty fresh and shiny from a refurb
  3. Well, since I have moved from London I don’t follow it as closely as I did before. But nonetheless, here are the proposed changes for 2021. Mainly focused on frequency adjustments http://www.londontransit.ca/2020/11/10/2021-draft-service-plan/ Not listed on this page- I have seen some proposed routing for a new route 95 express, going from White Oaks Mall to Fanshawe via Bradley and Highbury.
  4. Happy for that Box Grove express bus, but disappointed those route 9 improvements, as well as the more frequent service on routes 1 and 16 only lasted 2 months
  5. I’d be doubtful about that. I do drive past every now and then, and if my memory is correct, it’s still just a big metal structure in the middle of a field and doesn’t look to me that it’s near completion
  6. My jaw dropped when I saw the service improvements on route 9, not going to lie lol As an aside, do you think those GO shuttle routes will be brought back in the future?
  7. According to the trackers, XE40 1911 is out on route 55 this morning
  8. Schedules have been posted on the website. Viva Pink and Viva Green have actually been fully suspended, along with several other reductions/adjustments as was expected. Funny enough, route 1 will operate on a Saturday schedule on weekdays, which is actually a service improvement in the midday at least https://www.yrt.ca/en/news/covid-19-service-reduction.aspx
  9. YRT will be reducing service again on April 5. Schedules to be posted soon...
  10. Just spotted TTC TR 545x deadheading eastbound through Broadview station
  11. There were several T1s out on line 1 this morning, according to Twitter there were 6 trainsets sent to help out between Finch and Union. I managed to catch a ride on one this morning Might’ve been the last time for a ride on one on this stretch if ATC is gonna be extended to Queen in the next few weeks
  12. I would assume track testing. And kind of related, I was on a 504 streetcar last week which short turned at Broadview and Dundas. Was heading north on broadview, then dropped us all off, and turned left onto Dundas and probably looped back down to King via Parliament. So I assume the tracks are available for use
  13. TTC 4406 was out testing at broadview station, saw it at about 9:40PM
  14. When I take TTC routes in Markham, I notice that the Presto reader indicates that it is in the YRT zone. It actually says it on the screen of the device, I think in the bottom left corner (I.e. it will say “YRT” on the Presto reader). Seemingly the Presto reader knows when it crosses Steeles and which fare to deduct/transfer when a card is tapped, as Smallspy mentioned above. I was thinking about it too the other day, and it’d make sense if it was connected with Vision and the route the vehicle was operating on. And, say, once the stop at Steeles is past, the Presto device changes its fare zon
