  1. Why does it bother you so much? I see three scenarios in use of route numbers/name: 1. Person A gives person B gives directions in the form take route 32 to Dufferin and transfer to 29. In this case route names are unnecessary and could in fact be based on whatever scheme you choose street/neighbourhood/destination and even route numbers are arbitrary as we have discovered with multiple routes be renumbered in the last 10 years. 2. Person A gives person B gives directions in the form take Eglinton West bus to Dufferin and transfer to Dufferin bus. Once again routes could be named whatever you want and Person A will just use the route names being applied by TTC to the routes in question. 3. Person B uses any of the various apps to get directions and they will use route numbers or numbers with names in either case the name can be whatever it is and it will be simply provided as an extra bit of information. In all of these cases directions provided could be done with any string containing a number and a word. :)

    Must be very recent - it’s not on Port Colborne transit site yet.

    I meant that they renumbered Niagara Falls local routes to be 1xx, St Catherines 3xx and 4xx, Welland 5xx and Fort Erie 7xx. This seems to suggest that NOTL should be 2xx and Port Colborne 6xx.

    Will they assign numbers to local routes in Niagara-on-the-Lake (2xx) and Port Colborne (6xx) to fit the numbering scheme for bus routes in the region?

    5734 was used in the TV show Defiance which was cancelled last fall.
  9. The reassignment at Wilson doesn't make sense, why didn't they put 120 on upper level in the bay just ahead of 118/119 so that all westbound buses are on same level.
  10. 4227 (Eq bank) and 4238 (Carnivor) on 501 today
  11. 583x (lottery) on YUS today
  12. 4080 (Star Touch) on 501 and 4251 (casper mattress) on 501.

    saw 4416 turning from Victoria onto Queen westbound. The rear sign said "501" - not sure if it was in service though.
  14. I wonder if the changes to the 199 services in March will eliminate the need to have 39F and 139 routes.
  15. 4227 Manulife on 501 yesterday, 4251 Bell on 501 today (and yesterday)
