  1. This is what happens when you have an agreement and you dont follow it. You think you were ahead by pocketing the fares, now your friends are competition. Good job.
  2. So GO will no longer be servicing STC?
  3. Is there a reason why they cant just extend this route 500M to STC? They can take one of the Greyhound bays.
  4. https://images.app.goo.gl/QYPbcixTS6CMTY4u8 Did they rebuild these cars to have wider doors to accomodate wheel chairs?
  5. So it's only required if they are not protected. Understood.
  6. https://www.ontario.ca/document/official-ministry-transportation-mto-truck-handbook/stopping-railway-crossings#:~:text=Buses and other public vehicles,prepared to stop behind them. Nothing about exemptions.
  7. I'm wondering if for some reason Peterborough transit had an exemption from the stopping at all railway crossing rule? Because today I was pacing a Peterborough transit but that did not stop at an active crossing.
  8. I often do see buses with bald tires. That's about it.
  9. I recently visited Leslie station and I noticed how much some areas are in such disrepair. The lower entrance is missing ceiling tiles and the roof is leaking. Are there any plans to fix this, or are we just going to let the station fall into disrepair?
  10. But we are still using that 35 year old technology....
  11. You would think that with the technology available today there would be a better way to do this.
  12. But if you look at the D60lf vs LFSA the location of the articulation joint is very different. I don't know about the door placements but the doors are fitted in between wheels so there is not much you can do in terms of re-arranging the door positions.
  13. Those are in terrible shape, everything is loose and rattling the bus apart. It might be the way HSR maintains them. I haven't ridden Mississauga's version so I can't comment.
  14. Did it affect other buses? Or just GO transit? They should just go to binding arbitration and get it over with.
  15. I'm surprised that a light duty bus would be used for long haul services.. There are a few Safeway tours red Prevosts with decals removed driving around. Not sure who owns them.
  16. I think that they are a bit heavy to go camping.
  17. You need to be selective of the route you take, they aren't go anywhere height.
  18. If you have 60K you can own your own double decker bus. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1316673988841780/?ref=facebook_story_share
  19. They couldn't leave one track open for VIA?
  20. The bustitution is not because the streetcars are not reliable, it's because we dont have enough of them to go around.
  21. So it will actually pick you up from your door and take you to the GO Station? I would think it would be based on buses arriving at Oshawa for a certain departure and then the pickup time will be adjusted accordingly. If you want to catch the 12pm GO train from Oshawa, the bus will pick you up at 11:00am and then pick up people along the way. I think they should have started with services to Malls or certain land marks to start and then people can get to the mall so that they can catch the GO Bus to the station. Let the municipality provide the last mile to the door.
  22. I don't believe that they can use MP40's on the bridge. It likely has to do with the axle weight of the locomotive exceeding the weight limit of the track structure. Not the total weight of the train it's self. Notice how CN uses 2 axle locomotives on that route? It's likely because their bigger locomotives cannot go over the bridge.
  23. Doubt it since they will likely be retired soon. Did they convert the gangway doors to be push button?
  24. Can't wait to get rid of them...are they still leaking from the AC units?
  25. They should keep the OG hybrids for SRT shuttles. Those buses are still in good condition. Emissions standards might be an issue thou.
