  1. Somewhat relevant to that, YRT 1430 was doing training with operators in the new station ( still closed to public ) around 14:00 today
  2. Hello, I am hoping to find some information regarding the costs and benefits/cons of operators seats in buses. Does anyone have info on the cost of the recaro seat, standard model with no arm rest vs the USSC seat? I've emailed both companies to no avail and would love to see if there's knowledge on this forum about it
  3. Large ad racks also will not fit on the TTC spec Nova, large rear doors take up majority of the real estate there if you compare it to the picture of a STM LFS A cheaper option and a more common option companies use these days are just to slap the ad to the bus itself and remove when the campaign is done ( see example below I just took. ) I can’t even remember the last time I’ve seen Pattinson bring ad racks into the garage
  4. Was informed today the 1900 novas also have the USB charging ports under most of the seats
  5. No, orders tend to not go into service until around September/October. This includes the 2019 nova order
  6. New flyer xcelsior charge 60ft and nova LFs electric are on sandalwood property for an upcoming announcement
  7. That’s correct, Brampton received funding both from their own budget and from the Trudeau government directly, the timeline for the arrival of the LFSe isn’t known but the new sandalwood extension will be equipped with chargers if it hasn’t already been
  8. It’s honestly a hit or miss right now, as it Stands now we will not be able to replace the 02/03/04 flyers with the amount of buses we’re getting and the expansion in service the city keeps wanting to implement, the original plan was to replace the worst of the 02s but that’s not happening yet as for repurposing the 2012s it can’t happen just yet, come September we are stretched to the limit and often times will have cancelled 501s due to lack of Zum buses, including the XDE40s the garages are empty once rush hour hits the fact that we only received 2 XDE60s this year is somewhat alarming, hopefully next year the order is reversed and it’s a large Zum order instead There are many many many service expansion plans on hold that the public doesn’t know about yet, simply because we don’t have enough buses
  9. I’ll have to take a look, right now they’re parked in maintenance getting prepped
  10. All 2019 Novas have been delivered going from 1901 - 1919 I believe ( I’ll have to double check ) as well as 2 xcelsior articulated Zum buses, unknown if XD or XDE60
  11. Seems to have been resolved, no longer redirecting me to spam sites
  12. This pop up ad keeps coming up and redirecting me when I log into cptdb for IOS on safari, cleared history and it was good for a couple minutes then it came back it’s only on cptdb.ca, I tried with about 5 other websites and this didn’t pop up might just be me I’m not sure but figure I’d share this
  13. 617 on the 511A - 06 nova lfs 1481 on the 53/57 - 14 XDE60
  14. That seems like a more than reasonable response, they don’t have the funds to upgrade that particular garage so they use what buses they can, as for “hand me downs” a bus is a bus and any time I’ve ridden a Queensway allocated bus I’ve seen no issue with them.. they get the job done and the provide service to the residences of Toronto/Etobicoke now if people are complaining that aren’t bus fans, it’s possible the older 7s may have been breaking down over a time or they aren’t happy with the service they’re getting but I can hardly see an issue with getting an old Orion 7 vs a new nova..
