  1. TTC Delays and Disruptions

    Was caught in that - TTC marshalled buses from Mount Denis, Queensway (even 8004), and Wilson. When I passed Dufferin & Bloor around 3:20 there were six fire trucks on scene. Subway shuttles are always an adventure, my only comment is that there should have been a police presence and Ossington & Keele Stations to help the flow of vehicles. Another delay I was caught in was westbound Queen at Broadview. A construction truck winged eastbound 4041 and closed Queen west of Broadview. Trapped quite a number of 501 & 504 cars and 501 & 502 buses.

    Rode 0710 on 90 today - MTO sticker is up Nov-30-2017.
  3. Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    Does TTC management provide a monthly report indicating the impact of delayed M1 deliveries; such as number of forced ALRV-CLRV make-ready-for service and re-directed bus unit counts to supplement streetcar service?

    Are all M1 cars still leaving Thunder Bay with trolley poles?

    I suppose 65 is mathematically possible if a higher percent of finishing is done on TTC property
  6. Yes - the garage issue - is there a bus garage build in the next five to ten years or will Toronto live with this issue until a subway or LRT opens?
  7. Well, I rode a number of TTC buses in Toronto yesterday - 8620's 8720's and a few Orions and only 7711 (on 87A) seemed not be in too good shape but on the 86 and 116 routes there were many standing loads. Perhaps it might have been wiser to do a "buy 100 retire 80" plan, but buses don't appear to be a priority. Also, to note the very crowded DUNDAS car; and this with so many buildings under construction along Dundas between Parliament and Broadview.
  8. I'm a bit confused here: Wiki shows orders of 245 buses 8720 - 8964 and 40 buses 9200 - 9239 ... I add that to 285 buses ... CEO report indicates 281 buses to be delivered by end of 2018Q1. Thanks

    Was in city yesterday, on St. Clair, and noticed most of the assigned cars were CLRVs. Spotted 4405, 4419, 4442 out on line. Checking NEXTBUS this morning I see that a lot of the assignments are CLRVs. Would there be a reason for this?

    GOT 366 was working on a Mt. Pleasant flipper yesterday - believe that completes the cabcar orders

    Is 1730 a NOVA-owned bus for training only, or is it to be the class bus? Very rare that class bus number doesn't start on a 1.

    One might do their own research using the 55 app to see what units in a series haven't been out for some time.
  13. GO Transit

    I had presumed that, as with 600, 667 would be obligated to go to AAR Pueblo Test Center 1st and we likely would have 668 as the 1st to arrive at GO.

    To clarify: Is the post (Oct 1) of 1733, 1734 delivered, a fake news story. Has NOVA started to ship any of the 1731(?) order?
