  1. Société de transport de Lévis

    I guess this is a common 2017 theme, STLevis union has advised the transit management that they intend to go on strike on August 28 at 5am. Also note that STLevis is not subject to the essential service law

    11248 milliseconds ... that the time it has taken my brain to realize that i don't have the answer to that question
  3. The CIT thread...

    CTRP will bonify it's service starting August 14th The interesting bonification is that there will be a mid-morning trip from Saint-Marc-des-Carrières and Saint-Raymond leaving at around 10am, this could be useful for students that have only half a day at the college. They will also operate a against the flow trip starting at 8:15am to both destination (that a meh upgrade) Also students will get a 50% discount on the CTRP monthly pass

  10. I would personally prefer a fall color charter with a STO Classic. The bus fan community will already have visited Gatineau for the CTHF New Look Charter in July

Round trip ticket on the GO Train + Two Days WEGO pass for 25$ per adult (a GO one-way is 20$ so ...) , children and family package also avaliable Check: https://www.niagaraparks.com/visit-niagara-parks/plan-your-visit/deals-toronto/
  13. Société de transport de Montréal

    STM will modify the 747 bus service for the summer period, service is gonna be more frequent, as high as every 4 to 5 minutes between each bus during the afternoon. But between 11am and 7pm, about every second bus will shorturn at Lionel-Groulx station from the airport. Same thing to the airport, about half the bus will start from Lionel-Groulx http://www.stm.info/sites/default/files/planibus_juin2017/fr/747.pdf
  14. Sightings at the Nova Bus factory

    Route 1 remains intact (as it does serve a totally different area) ... Route 21, 1A and 111 are abolished to make place to the new 11
  15. VIA Rail Canada

    Also remember that Renaissance cars needs absolutely two cars to operate in passenger service, they need either a luggage car / transition car AND a service car . If they deadhead, they still need either the luggage or transition car since knukle are not the same as the rest of the VIA fleet
