  1. On Thursday morning going southbound to Sheppard Yonge and Going North Bound in the evening. The destination sign said Via senlac to Sheppard Yonge station.
  2. Is there a Express route that uses Senlac? I saw an LFS with destination sign indicating "Express Route to Sheppard-Yonge Station VIA Senlac". But there is nothing on the TTC Website.
  3. Will run times still get pushed out? Do drivers still get paper schedules?

    Does Stagecoach have any interest in any of those routes?

    Greyhound in the news

    Why didnt he call the depot and ask for directions? Dont they provide a map to drivers?

    Why did it take 8 years to deliver 135 cars?

    Would it worth it to build an updated HEP II car? There are many new modern designs. But at the same time it won't be consistent with the current fleet, which takes away from the nostalgia that the train has.

    Even if the tender is won today, it would be a year before the new rolling stock is in service.

    I wonder if VIA would pickup the parlour cars? Are the P42's salvageable?

    Seeing as how the Super LO's have smaller and thinner tires and rims must mean that the chassis is much lighter than their Vanhool counterparts. I'm sure there would be an operational benefit to operating a super LO vs Vanhool in terms of Fuel. The seats that GO transit uses are not that comfortable, but that can easily be changed. Other than that, I don't see why you can't use it for intercity use.

    I saw them running yesterday on my way to Midland. I didn't get to see if there was anyone on the bus. The bus stops are well marked and put in places where they make sense. I wonder if you can get dropped off between stops? Do the buses accept Presto?

    It would be nice if the dedicated track is approved, but I feel like the upgrades to the existing track that have already been done would go to waste. Not to mention all of the station upgrades, and what is to say that the next government elected into power will continue to fund it until it is built? Even with shovels in the ground, projects have been cancelled due to changes in Government. I don't know how popular it would be to cancel it, but Conservatives voted into power after a Liberal Government have a history of making deep cuts to public projects (Steven Harper, Mike Harris and Doug Ford).

    I was in Dublin and noticed that there are Volvo buses with Alexander Dennis bodies. Was this a joint arrangement? I believe the chassis is a Volvo Charis but the body is made by Alexander Dennis? There where hundreds of them, and they seem to ride well. They where different bodies than the Eviros that we see in North America.

    If they where to build new cars, would they be consistent with the current Fleet? Or would they be more modern cars?

    Cancelled TTC bus orders

    Could we have gotten LFS instead of RTS'? Why was the order cut in half? But Nova didn't have an issue with tarrifs with the RTS because they where not built in Quebec?
