    Like you, never saw it in the 2019 budget for all night service nor stated as increase of service hours. Something must had been said during the budget process that this was to take place. Wasn't at any of the budget meetings this round. The next 5 year plan is to start with public meetings this year and be approve in 2020.

    As it stands now, these overnight routes will service a small area and small number of riders. Once you expand the number of routes that will service most of Mississauga, then you will see an increase of ridership 7 days a week, not the few plan ones. Need to have service every 30 min as max. Trying to run a route with only 1 or 2 buses is not going to cut it. Will not see anymore new routes until 2020 when the next budget kicks in, unless council can find money to do it 6 months if the GM can make a case from now or out of reserves.

    CEO May Report Currently, the 504 King, 509 Harbourfront, 510 Spadina and 512 St Clair are fully served with lowfloor streetcars. We began deploying these streetcars on the 501 Queen in January 2019. We expect that all service on Queen, between Humber Loop and Neville Park Loop will be operated by lowfloor streetcars by early summer. Subsequent routes for streetcar deployment will be: 511 Bathurst (summer 2019), 501 Queen (Long Branch Loop to Humber Loop, fall 2019), 506 Carlton (late 2019), and 505 Dundas (spring 2020). Lowfloor streetcar service on Kingston The MDBF for the LFLRV fleet in March was 13,223 kilometres. This is a decrease of 1,554 kilometres from the same time last year and a decrease of 81 kilometres from last month. The overall LFLRV MDBF remains below the 35,000-kilometre target. The overall number of failures in March remained consisted with February. Slight increases in brake, high voltage and train control management system failures resulted in a small decrease in MDBF. No report on the ALRV fleet and since they haven't seen service since Jan, will say they are retire now. Some how, TTC still wants to have only 161 cars in service daily, yet ridership increase say there should be more.

    "On Saturday, May 25, the TTC is opening its doors to Bay Lower Station as part of Doors Open Toronto. This is the sixth time that the public will get to visit our “ghost station” below Bay Station. Bay Lower will be open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. and usually attracts upwards of 5,000 curious visitors when featured during the popular city-wide event. Bay Lower has made numerous cameo appearances in many major motion pictures and television"

    Always have the one breaking in on the point with a backup behind it increase it fails during the trip. This applies to ones that have seen service on them as well. Saw a case last week where a new one was on point with another heading westbound. An hour or so later, both were pulling a train by themselves heading to Union to go into service.

    I came upon these service changes posted in Toronto and surprised to see them since I have never seen service changes notices posted along the routes. More so the style of the notices that used to be paper only. Don't remember seeing them a month or two ago when I was in the area. This is on Dundas eastbound east of Kipling that includes a 307 route. This is westbound on Dundas at Subway Dr and same as one west of Auckland
