    Despite being used on the Special Olympic Shuttle last week in Whitby, the Novas weren’t ready for paying passenger service, however finally after arriving in late October, the 6100’s at Westney have entered service with 6101, on the 915 at 17:30 and 6102 on the 224B 20:05 6100 is on the 225 6104 is on the 110B

    I had experienced this once when their was a Priority One Situation bear Rouge Hill, all the busses were using a variation of a 90 Branch Letter

    I was referring to the fact that some routes from some agencies don’t exist anymore

    This is what I had heard as well, however, if you look at the article, it mentions that the land acquisition was only just completed and it is expected that the construction would start on 2020 on North Oshawa, possibly a typo on their end.

    Seems to be slightly outdated, but still really interesting, how did you make that?

    I would assume the bringing it in house, a report last year mentioned that if construction began in 2020, hopes would be that it would be done by the time the contract is up in January 2022.

    That’s the idea replace the 2006 D40LF’s with 2013 BRT vehicles repurposed into conventional, the loss of those vehicles (from BRT Service) would be replaced with Artics

    So the Service and Financing study has been released for business plans for 2019-2020 and beyond, however the service plan and budgetary askings are missing and will be added in the March 6th 2019 TEC meeting. few points of interest, Bus Procurement. It is unknown how many, but with the 2006 D40LF’s beginning retirement, they will be preserved in service one more year, being replaced by the some (or all) of the 26 2013 PULSE XD40’s. DRT estimates with the amount of Kilometres on the PULSE Fleet, which is now at half-life, that they won’t actually make it to the goal of 12 years. - Current average 100,000km/year - If repurposed 78,000/year the XD40’s will be replaced by 2019 Artics with BRT Styling, likely LFSA’s purchased through the Metrolinx TPI. New Facilities DRT has plans to build two new facilities over the next five years North Oshawa - Indoor facility - Largest Facility for central operation of routes in most areas - large scale maintenance facility - construction starting 2020 Seaton - Storage for Vehicles only, - Services for North Durham and Seaton Areas - Construction begins 2023 Bus Stop Environment Hard Surfacing - For all stops to be hard surfaced by 2025, 90 Pads per year must be built. Shelters - With the Pilot at Westney and Highway 2 as well as the Commuter Lot at Simcoe Street and R.R.12 complete DRT wants to begin retrofitting shelters with solar powered lighting. - LED next bus displays will be piloted at 5 transfer points and terminals throughout 2019.

    Transit has been known to scrape the data from internal sources, this has happened most recently with Durham Region Transit. DRT Hasn’t officially released the data, however they are working on it, Transit found wherever it was DRT housed the feed, and put it in the app that may be what happened here.

    That’s actually incorrect in terms of GO Transit, but is true of others GO does provide the info to Transit App.

    In terms of fleet. 6100-6110 are going in service next week as per an internal buliten at Westney division all 89xx ElDerodo’s are going to Wentworth from Westney following that same buliten 6111 and 6112 have moved to Raleigh to replace 8169 and 8171 and should enter service in the next two weeks. 8405 was involved in a collision about a week ago and is not going to be repaired, despite the damage being minimal. 8417 is obviously one of the units that the new Novas are replacing 7100-7103 should start service February 13th. tomorrow we should see the servicing strategy for 2019-2028.
