  2. RFP 2020-038 TRANSIT BUSES FOR COUNTY OF SIMCOE AND TOWN OF MIDLAND The County of Simcoe and Town of Midland are conducting a joint procurement for 30' low floor buses to be delivered in 2021-2023. 2021 delivery of 3 buses to Simcoe County and 1 bus to Midland. Delivery is required by June 15, 2021. 2022 delivery of 1 bus to Simcoe County. 2023 requirements to be determined. Bids are due on July 24. Of note, this is the first time Simcoe County has purchased transit buses on their own. The ADL Enviro 200s and the RAM Promasters were purchased through the Metrolinx joint procurement, and the Vicinity buses were purchased off Oakville's order. https://simcoecounty.bidsandtenders.ca/Module/Tenders/en/Tender/Detail/f3f1872d-ddc3-4ded-991c-d9012d2724c1

  4. The following page can be deleted as a new page has been created reflecting the proper fleet numbers. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Mountain_Metropolitan_Transit_2010_Ford_Startrans EDIT: These 2 pages can be deleted as well as new pages were created reflecting the proper fleet numbers. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Grand_Valley_Transit_11101 https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Grand_Valley_Transit_11103
  5. The following 2 pages can be deleted completely. The fleet series should have been on the same page, not two separate ones and I've created the proper page for them. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Roaring_Fork_Transportation_Authority_701-704,_721-732 https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Roaring_Fork_Transportation_Authority_733-738
  6. The 110 service to Clarkson is necessary to provide connections for UTM students to/from the GO Lakeshore Line, and is well used when UTM is in session, after all the majority of UTM students are commuters. Let's not forgot UTM has a active student union and provides millions of dollars in stable revenue to MiWay each year through the UPass program. Removing that service would take away a key connection and would likely be met with vocal opposition from UTM.
  7. The 106 buses you reference along with the listed project numbers were the Nova and New Flyer buses that were received in 2017 and 2018, which were purchased using PTIF funding. Because full reimbursement for these projects still has not been received they are still listed as open projects in the budget report. The charts included with the report make that clear, as do the actual project numbers indicating the projects started in 2016 and 2017. I do not know why there is a note for deferring the payment of training costs for the New Flyers however. 49 Nova LFS 40' (1730-1766, 1801-1812) + 30 Nova LFS 60' (1770-1799) + 27 New Flyer 40' (1701-1727) = 106 buses in 2017 and 2018. The only buses on order currently are the 11 New Flyer XDE60s being delivered this fall. Mississauga currently has plans to purchase ~250 buses for 2021-2023 delivery (109 buses projected for 2021) taking advantage of ICIP funding but until that is approved, nothing will be purchased, and there is no guarantee they will be from NFI either.
  8. In the fall 2018 MiWay ridership count (the last data set available) the 103 recorded 18,022 boarding and alightings along the full route. 3,036 (17%) of the total were between Lakeshore and the Queensway, a small stretch of the overall route. There is a good amount of usage in this small stretch of the route but if you have data to the contrary, please share that with us. Also, what about all the current and planned density in the Port Credit area? The decision to terminate the 103 at Trillium is very disappointing from a network perspective. It means there will no longer be a connection to Port Credit GO or the 23 Lakeshore, trip times will become much longer for those looking to bypass the city centre area and combined frequencies along the entire corridor will be worse. Nine years ago, one of the reasons for the integration of the 103/502 and having express service the full length of Hurontario was to set the stage for the LRT on Hurontario, and now a major part of that is being cut back. The only positive is improving capacity and operation and Port Credit GO but that alone does not outweigh the significant negatives of this plan. This is also another great example of how badly the entire MiWay Five plan has been handled. There was no mention of this proposed change in the original plan, nor in the most recent fall 2019 Public Information sessions and it only appeared on the website a few weeks ago. In typical MiWay contempt for communicating with customers there isn't even a link to the MiWay Five page from the website anymore. The only way to get to the page is to google it.
  9. From the May 25 council meeting, Cornwall Transit will be adding an additional 2 Nova buses to its existing order of 4 buses, for a total of 6 buses. With the change to the order, delivery of all 6 buses will be in April 2021, rather than November 2020 as planned for the original order of 4 buses. The additional 2 buses ordered will replace 2 of the 2008 ElDorado buses. Link to council agenda
  10. The tender for 4 30ft diesel buses was posted on Friday. Bids are due July 7 and the region is requesting delivery by April. https://regionofwaterloo.bidsandtenders.ca/Module/Tenders/en/Tender/Detail/8806fdea-87b7-40e8-b689-dff5a80bb5c5

  12. A bump, but since you asked about updated fleet information, I have updated the CPTDB Wiki page to reflect current information for Huntsville Shuttle Bus. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Huntsville_shuttle_bus The Alabama A&M Arrivo you photographed is the only one they have and it is a 2015 former ElDorado demonstrator bus.

  15. Over the past little while, I've been working on digitizing Mississauga Transit material to archive online for viewing. This effort led to http://mississaugatransithistory.ca which is now online. Included on the website are old Mississauga Transit system maps, schedules and frequency guides, service change announcements as well as various council and committee reports related to Mississauga Transit from its beginnings in the early 1970s to present. Of course this is just the beginning - there will be much more material to be published over the coming months that will provide a even more complete look into Mississauga's Transit history. The website is pretty bare bones to start as it is meant as a archive for material, but that will evolve over time. Feel free to take a look and if there's anything you feel should be added to the site or have something to contribute, reach out to me via message or using the email listed on the site.
