    It'll be interesting to see how station ridership changes with this...

    Air Canada

    Air Canada has cancelled their contract with Air Georgian and is transferring Georgian's flying to Jazz. https://nationalpost.com/news/regional-airline-loses-1-5m-passenger-contract-with-air-canada-but-denies-safety-concerns-a-factor?fbclid=IwAR0sZkVWVq4-GygSjKBauFW7-76r7crmjUSmuDwfO1Vq6TS4il3_W66waVg With that, Georgian's 12 CRJ-200s will be transferred to Jazz, Jazz's YYZ CRJ pilot base will reopen, and 14 new CRJ-900s will be added to the Jazz fleet.

    The Random Thoughts Thread

    Moaning about everyone on this discussion board more than even contributing to the board yourself doesn't place you much higher on the "quality" scale.

    CTrain Station Renovations

    Will there be a temporary station structure? Any insight at all as to what exactly it will look like when complete? Last I passed through, it seems no construction has even been started yet!

    General BRT discussion

    Took a few rides on the 17 Ave transitway for the first time this afternoon. My first impressions weren’t too bad. 9th Avenue to 44th Street station took me 13 minutes. Signalling is clearly an ongoing issue, particularly the ones near the 9th Avenue station and the 26th Street station. Waited an easy 2-3 minutes at those each time which made the bus considerably late. The rest of the transitway seems to function well. Station areas are well designed and I had no confusion or difficulty using the infrastructure. Bus time displays at the stations were erroneous. A Route 1 pulled up as the display indicated 20 minutes until the next Route 1 and 18 minutes until the next MAX Purple.

    General Route Discussion and History

    As of the new route changes, the old bus loop at Whitehorn station is no longer served by any routes as the 57 now bypasses it. Are there any plans to redevelop that space or will it just sit abandoned?
