  1. Currently riding 6039 on the 117 that is normally serviced by a 40 footer. I’ve noticed many first PM trips avoiding Deerfoot Trail and following the SE BRT route instead. Not the case today . Love riding an artic at 100km/hr on Deerfoot! I took a pretty crappy photo too.
  2. How about they bring back 4 car consists first before crowding the trains even more?
  3. Is this their way of making CT less scary?
  4. My mom sent me a picture of that bus saying "what the hell is happening to this city?" and I had to explain to her this was for a movie/TV set, hahaha. Given the circumstances (higher crime rate in DT, open drug use on Transit property, etc) I don't blame her for asking!
  5. It was like that last Sunday too. I was wondering if CT gave in and made the 14s fully conventional
  6. Some very interesting articles out about Calgary Transit today: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/calgary-police-ctrain-kyle-grant-cps-1.6419873 https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/alberta-transit-comittment-1.6418695 Both great news for our city
  7. I think we are headed in the right direction. Ridership is definitely making a comeback.
  8. Looks like the CT app is still operable and their contract was extended. https://twitter.com/calgarytransit/status/1503437061973590029?s=20&t=Vc6bjlOE2sCabWx-rON6Iw
  9. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/alberta-transit-investment-1.6382503 party!
  10. Went back into the office (Bow Valley Square) and it’s like COVID never happened walked home by a 131 and 151 both with at least half the seats taken.
  11. I guarantee you that downtown traffic will pick up when the WFH order is lifted. I work in downtown and I know many people and employers eagerly waiting for the order to be lifted. Fall 2020 and Fall 2021 (when times were pretty good COVID wise) saw a lot of traffic going into the core.
  12. Well done downbeat. Thanks for the summary!
  13. I think boosting ridership is CT's least worry right now. I don't have any insight information but what I assume is safety and staffing issues are probably their biggest focus right now. Both factors that are wildly out of their control due to the pandemic. Name one industry that isn't experiencing some level of staffing issue right now.
