  1. I'm a little shocked that Calgary Transit's official Twitter account promoted the rack-tracking feature on Transit55!
  2. They've finished tunnelling to Dorval airport … but some people are wondering why they can't go 700 metres farther to reach the current Dorval rail stations and transit bus terminal. https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/alice-the-rem-tunnel-boring-machine-completes-journey-to-montreal-airport-1.6008806
  3. On-demand transit hailed as success, expansion on the way. https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/0725-on-demand-transit
  4. 6060, 6050, 8082, 6046, 6078, 6033 observed on shuttle service a few moments ago. Two trains also seen coming down the hill from SAIT to Sunnyside, so potentially good news? EDIT: Aha! Good news indeed. https://twitter.com/calgarytransit/status/1551734840818532353?s=20&t=gICuI3y2yBnzm_aZHIdmNA
  5. The problem on the Red Line near SAIT started last night: https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/mechanical-issue-stops-ctrain-travel-between-sunnyside-and-lions-park-station-1.6001033 On TV a few minutes ago, they showed some video of the darkened, immobilized train from late Sunday.
  6. Ah, that explains it … https://twitter.com/calgarytransit/status/1551618944691277824?s=20&t=D_KZCamv8cQbC7EyfRJOyA
  7. According to a little bit of info deep in this news article, the buses are privately chartered. https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/excitement-builds-as-calgarians-prepare-to-travel-to-edmonton-to-see-pope-francis
  8. Route 131 is only about 11 months old, but despite the line’s relative novelty, the southbound departure I just got a look at from downtown was very well used, with all seats pretty much taken after riders boarded at Suncor Energy Centre.
  9. 7701 does *NOT* have red seats. Got a better look today on MAX Yellow. I was obviously seeing things the last time it passed me.
  10. This matches up with a report in another thread!
  11. I would be very peeved if lack of ridership is cited as a reason why this route isn’t brought back next year.
  12. From the RTL website: https://rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/en-CA/customer-service/rem-works-info/ Buses are being relocated to the new terminal at Panama. Linked from there is a map showing the new boarding locations. https://www.rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/CMS/MediaFree/file/REM/4_22-035-Visuels_Terminus_Panama_Plan_48X96.pdf
  13. I didn’t see exactly which CTrain car, but there was an ad for the upcoming Brad Pitt movie “Bullet Train” plastered on the side. It seemed wholly appropriate and inappropriate at the same time.
