  1. Double decker bus order

    Of course, that’s why they were bought!
  2. The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    There is no chance it will be ready by Canada Day The track isn't even completely laid down on the line yet, signalling has to be installed and tested, stations have to be fitted out, staff (not just drivers) have to be recruited an trained, and crucially a full service has to be run on the system for a period of time for testing before it can be open to the public, I don't even think all the trains are built yet. 2018 is 3 weeks away......I'll predict that the very earliest that the line will be open to the public will be around October but I wouldn't be surprised if it was 2019, don't forget #OnTrack2018 was dropped a long time ago in favour of the more obscure #ReadyForRail. If we were going live in little over 6 months the City would be proclaiming the news from the rooftops.
  3. OC Bus Spottings

    Double deckers do appear on the 6 on weekdays reasonably often, but they aren't scheduled workings.
  4. Double decker bus order

    They are there because they are not yet required for service, no other reason.
  5. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    If only it was that simple.....🙄🙄

    You need more staff to run more buses, and it’s not just one driver for one bus, you need more garage space to run more buses, all that costs more money.
  7. Hurdman to Downtown via King Edward?

    The 98 isn’t the best option, it’s the only option.
  8. Hurdman to Downtown via King Edward?

    The only bus From Hurdman to King Edward is the 98
  9. Belleville Transit

    Is the bus out on a Sunday? I’ll be in Belleville for a couple of days at Christmas, my inlaws live there, if it’s out I’ll try and catch it on Christmas Eve. Where exactly in Belleville is the depot as I would pop up there to see if it is parked up if it’s not in service?
  10. If you have to rely on services like the 6 or 12 waits of 30 minutes are commonplace due to the amounts of, often unreported, cancellations in service.
  11. OC Bus Spottings

    Tow it back to the depot
  12. OC Bus Spottings

    They are on all large City vehicles eg. Refuse trucks, snowploughs. it has stirred some debate on twitter with the more extreme of the cycle lobby claiming that it is thé responsibility of drivers of large vehicles to look out for cyclists rather than them taking responsibility for their own personal safety.
  13. Double decker bus order

    which is why I suspected that they were leased rather than purchased outright
  14. Double decker bus order

    Did OC actually own them or were they leased from ADL?
  15. Double decker bus order

    Does anyone know what happened t9 1201-3 after they left Ottawa, and are they still in service somewhere?
