  1. I didn’t say they shouldn’t be on it, I did say they should pay for the privilege of taking their bike on the LRT, I don’t think that’s unreasonable. Your comparison to an “obese” person paying double fare is quite frankly ludicrous and offensive.
  2. Of course you could actually just ride your bike between stations, no need to carry bikes on such a short route, alternately there should be a charge to carry cycles, especially as they can take up the room of 2 fare paying passengers. Many LRT/Metro Systems throughout the world don't permit the carriage of bikes on trains during morning and evening rush hours, I expect that may happen in Ottawa in due course.
  3. You know the difference between rail and light rail? How could they run Express services on the LRT?
  4. You haven’t been on many light rail systems have you?
  5. Do you really not know the answer to that question???😂😂
  6. I’ll have a choice, I live in Vanier and the LRT comes nowhere near me.........like hundreds of thousands of other people in the city....I’m stuck with the bus.
  7. We are however talking about OC Transpo and their management..........
  8. Why not? New buses are more likely to be in service all day, so maximum exposure for advertisers!
  9. Were the two extras not bought to replace accident damaged Orion’s?
  10. No violation, read and learn, the key is in the word “most” Rack & Roll season is here! From spring to fall, take your bike along for the ride! Many buses, including most trips on routes 12, 61, 62, 85, 88, 91, 94, 95, 97, 98, 99, 101, and 106 will have a rack You can also bring your bike onboard the O-Train year-round To plan a trip using only routes with a bike rack or the O-Train, turn on the “Rack & Roll” option in the Travel Planner.
  11. We are on topic as we are discussing something which is relevant to the thread.
  12. Why don’t you just post the photos when you make your initial post then we don’t have this charade each week? It’s just creating a string of unnecessary posts on the thread.
  13. So that the inner lights can be seen from the outside at night and the front of the bus is visible to oncoming traffic.
  14. IIRC 1203 operated the first passenger carrying service, I have pictures of the first run taken at Blair, I'll have to dig them out to confirm.
  15. True, but I’m sure the piece were the coach is actually parked is just off Montreal. Chris did tell me, but I can’t remember the exact location.
