  1. Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    It supposed to be 4474 Looks like 4473 saw no work on it over the weekend since it was in the same spot until today.

    TTC tests battery-powered buses as it gears up for a green future
  3. Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    Has the unknown number car been off loaded at Hillcrest yet and if so, what the number?? Going out on the limb, 4473 could enter service between Friday and Monday, since it done its burn in based on what I have seen so far. If so, it will be the shortest from delivery to in service in a long time. 11-14 days if it happens.

    4471 is in service on 514 after being here 16 days.

    According to the tracker, 4466 was last seen 18 days ago, that has its GPS currently located on the north side of Davenport, at Hillcrest. <https://www.transsee.ca/fleetfind?a=ttc&q=4466&Go=Go>

    4469 is not in service yet. It was being test as in service as a signed 501 for announcement testing. It is in the service bay at this time. No idea why this car taking so long to enter service, as well redoing stop announcements/testing after in various service bays for days/week. 4472 is at Dundas West station at this time. It was out at Humber Loop earlier. At this rate, could be the first cars in months to enter service under 15 days.

    4469 is now in the in service car line and will finally enter service Friday with luck, after 25 days been here. 4470 is in final prep work for service and could enter service between Friday and Monday

    4472 is now tracking Will 4469 enter service tomorrow after being here 22 days so far?? 4470 out for testing as an in service car on Queen, west of Dufferin.
  11. GO Transit

    The new tunnel south of the current one at Kennedy Station is in place and being backfill when I was there today. It could be completed by tonight to allow reinstalling the removed track in the next 12 hours. Sound barrier wall being installed north of Eglinton on the east side. Maybe GO should take a page of Orlando SunRail System where there is a count down on the platform Signs as well announcement that a train approaching. This included Amtrak trains. Announcement are done in Spanish as well.
  12. Streetcar News

    I was under the impression all the overhead at St Clair W loop was to have been rebuilt last year during the removal of the streetcar. Maybe it has to be rebuilt again based on the problems at Bloor-Spadina Loop last fall during the testing of the pans. Based on my site tour today, can't see why the loop will remain close to TTC riders until June 24. The worse can be the end of April or early May. The work that remains is building the sidewalk in the underpass, landscaping, concrete around the outside of the rebuilt concrete loop for 508, handrails on the new east/west bound platforms, concrete between the new east/west bound platform and the shelter, as well the new 508 platform and the bus platform. 3 TTC crews were working on the overhead east of under the overpass of Queensway to make sure if everything was in the correct location. Even though Windermere Ave will be the final drop off and pickup point, there is an indentation that Kingsway stop could see service as well. Got to walk about 1,000 feet to catch the westbound 501 bus on Windermere, south of the Queensway thank to traffic to have it moved there than just south of Queensway. Still no idea where over a dozen 300' rails are to go that are store east of underpass. Asphalt should be done this week between the rebuilt tracks on the Lake Shore and the existing road. This will allow traffic to use the tracks. The westbound platform at the underpass has been rebuilt wider. The Overhead between Park Lawn and the Loop has been rebuilt to new standards.

The final PCC was retired from service in 1995. During the parade, the 501 Queen streetcar route will turn back at Kingston Rd. starting at 1 p.m. The 64 Main and 92 Woodbine South buses offer service nearest the parade route but will also be on diversion for the duration. Visit ttc.ca for more details. Regular service resumes when the parade ends at approximately 5 p.m.
