    Except that the streetcars and buses have many cameras pointing in different different, which would record from way before an incident to way after. They should adjust the fine to the higher range, if they complain and it is found to be on the TTC side.

    Parkside Drive was originally named Keele Street. It was the same width as Indian Road, and Indian Road was the "major" street before the widening and renaming. Both Parkside Drive and Indian Road met at a fork in the road, where the current Queensway overpass is today.

    If the CRA accepts your income tax being postmarked before May 1st, they consider it as "accepted" even though it hasn't been "delivered" to their office. Shouldn't the shipping of streetcars and light rail vehicles be the same?

    Yes, They have done it. It's easier now with low-floor vehicles.

    With several condo developments slated for along the Queensway, I would expect to see even more to replace the asphalt deserts (blooming with the rainfall of construction) currently along the Queensway, which would help to provide future increases in ridership.

    I actually lived near Roncesvalles carhouse. No complaints from me. There is also currently an old folks home, Copernicus Lodge, next door to it. And there's St. Joseph Health Care Centre (AKA a hospital) across the street to it to the west. And the houses do sell well in the area, but none on the market at the moment.

    With heavy maintenance of the Flexity streetcars going to Leslie, the TTC could reconfigure the trackwork at Hillcrest to store streetcars from 509, 510, 511, and 512, if needed.

    No help from anti-transit, anti-streetcar newspapers like the Toronto Sun, see http://www.torontosun.com/2017/02/18/toronto-needs-a-war-on-the-streetcar

    The 511 Bathurst will be buses because of the streetcar shortage.

    The new streetcars are built to the existing Toronto streetcar network specifications. The Transit City lines (IE. Eglinton Crosstown, Finch West) are being built to the light rail vehicles' specifications. There's a difference.

    Now if only the TTC had a TTC museum. There's always Hillcrest.

    Will the Halton County Radial Railway be getting of the retired streetcars as well? They already have a PCC 4000 from the year 1938.

    Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Years Day may slow down deliveries. Followed by a hangover after New Years.
