  1. Both stations been on TTC list to be the last ones for over a decade to be rebuilt. I well speak to Islington more than Warden as I used it more as well know what is going on with it to a point. TTC wanted an office tower on that site and were willing to push accessibility for it down the road until tat tower was built. After the last office attempt failure, TTC took another look at another location for the station access that was accessibility and bus bay on the lot that ended up next CP corridor. As far as I know today, that plan still exist with rest of the site being use for affordabl
  2. I am surprise that there are still 2008 60's on the road today given the fact that most 60's use to make 11 years with a number only hitting 10. Those 4 60's are entering their 13 years. Then you got 2003 entering their 18th years and 3 years past retirement. miWay staff and personnel are nearing the point of what to do and thank COVID-19 for delaying what to do if ridership keep growing to put service on the road when there are no buses to do so. Council still think with their feet as if you have access to a car you can get around your safe and we can keep your taxes low while those
  3. 4426 doing break testing at this time and should be in the Barns this afternoon. Had a look at the photo of 4426 to see if I could see if any damage and saw where the rope has removed some paint at the top and bottom that will require some touch up Not mine and on facebook that I don't use Keep failing to post this, but 4419 reenter service on April 10 and another fast turn around of 22 days 4426 Heading southbound on Bathurst St as an in service car.

  5. I see 4426 been off loaded and 4428 has taken it spot on the flat
  6. It looked like CP was slow in delivering the car as it was in Lambton yard on the Sat as there is a photo of it heading to the yard that day crossing Osler. I stand to be corrected as I have seen cars arrived and leave Hillcrest with the pole been wrap and wire tie to the hook as well 2 sets of rope. Have seen cars pole tape and wire only to rope only with various methods in between. Today, 4426 only has one twin rope on the driver side and above the hock. I did not see any damage to the pole and car at this time until I download the photos I shot today to get a better look at the cl
  7. 4416 has reenter service on 511 After being off loaded Feb 26 Looks like 4426 maybe off loaded today. A car between 4428-4433 could replace 4426 on the flat
  8. We all make errors and move on. There is 2 ways to do number of days and only a day between them. You can include end date that adds a day too the dates and that will add an extra day to my date. Has 4426 been off loaded? If these shorter dates continue, TTC will see 3 more cars this month. Thanks
  9. If car was loaded Dec 23/20 and off loaded April 1/21, I get 99 days not the 91 you have unless I missing something. Regardless, its the shortest turn around and wonder if Alstom has had a hand to reduce the turn around. The longer La Pocatiere, QC has the cars, more it costing them and the bottom line.
  10. miWay new bus..................haaaaaaa
  11. Whoa..................This is the fastest turn around now at 97 day if off loaded today or 98 for Tuesday. Looks like they starting to pump them out of QC as it costing them money as it stands. 4416 still up at Hillcrest for some unknown reason
  12. Thanks No access to tracking CP and not my thing. 4421 did make it to Leslie 4416 has been up at Hillcrest the last 2 days 4419 about ready to leave the yard for more testing.
  13. Stand to be corrected, but looks like 4423 is on that extra flat like I said last night. That 14 cars off site and just short of 7% of the fleet. That will be some train to see with 3 or 4 cars on the Montreal train depending where 4402 is. 4421 still at Hillcrest
  14. Got to ride 2056 today for the first ride on the new buses as well seeing 2 more on Dundas today with no camera on me at the time. https://pub-mississauga.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=10781https://pub-mississauga.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=10782https://pub-mississauga.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=10783https://pub-mississauga.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=10784
