  1. Regarding the Class 710 Overground units, the entry date into service is still unknown due to various issues with the software. As the Class 172 diesel units are removed from the Gospel Oak to Barking line (GOBLIN), the Class 378 are being modified from 5 car to 4 car for operation on the GOBLIN until the Class 710 enters service.

    2018 SkyTrain Procurement

    The numbers are applied only when they arrive at the OMC, as seen in my 2016 photo below.

    Will 39-001 to -015 be an expansion to the 747 roster, or will they replace some/all of the 3rd gen LFS buses?
  4. One more question to add. Though I have lived in Montreal, I never needed Opus (b/c I lived in downtown), but specifically about that, is Opus a stored-value card where you can add money to it and use it at different transit agencies around Montreal/Quebec City, similar to Presto or Compass? Or can you only load discrete tickets/passes to it? It was really hard to find an answer to it.

    Looks like I may continue taking Teo Taxi to the airport just like I always do... until the REM opens. The hybrids themselves may be better than the 3rd gens but the seating layout is just ridiculous. Not worth the $10 fare.

    For sure the 39-001 to -015 would go to the 747?
  8. Is TTC still planning on getting Proterra buses? They're still not listed on their latest service summary.

    This video at 22:16 just shows how strong the bus shelters were. Even the excavator had some troubles dealing with it. Credit: octranspo9137

    Thumbnail replacement & Uploading photos

    I don't know if this is the right place to post it, but I'm sure there is a rule about not posting photos of vehicles involved in accidents to the wiki. Photos of wrecked vehicles, especially in a fatal collision, can cause a lot of distress. Admins, would you elaborate on the posting of this photo? https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Ottawa-Carleton_Regional_Transit_Commission_8155-a.jpg

    Given the extent of the damage, it is likely that it was moving at high speed during the impact. Some express buses travel really fast through the corridor.

    Paramedics did not report fatalities but why is Ottawa Citizen reporting fatalities (the only news source doing so)?

    Only Ottawa Citizen said there were 3 fatalities. None of the other sites said that.

    Those bus shelters look much stronger than the bus itself.
