    Personally that’s one of the gaps I find most annoying being it’s my home line. lots of people are still getting off work at this time and DRT doesn’t even do their best to try to help these people out

    DRT has Confirmed there is no longer going to be any service to UTSC Loop and they’re looking to put permanent stops on Ellesmere with a possible stop at Centennial Loop

    Little thread bump here... Noticed today that the next phase of expansion at Raleigh is well underway with exterior funashing occurring on the old building now, the rear storage area will soon be recieving a canopy to protect the tops of vehicles. internal upgrades are also being done to the storage facility (old building) to bring it up to the New Maintnece Facility’s standards. in Deliveries news, 5 more novas will come this year (8590-8594) with 4 more technically considered 2018’s to be delivered in January (8595-8598). After that the 85xx is closed and a new number series will have to begin in 2019 with 11 replacements scheduled for that year.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Not really a question, more so an observation. The Express network signs are already up at Pioneer Village. Albeit, TTC hasnt even officially announced their September 2nd Changes

    Most do, but sometimes you release a driver at their location by parking your car at your end destination of your paddles, then drive a shuttle car to the bus you’re releaving

    Cheaper than paying to build their own facility. (Putting it into perspective, Raleigh upgrades cost almost $30,000,000.) With the amount of money received from PTIF Phase 2, the three biggest things they want to do include a new Central Facility creating 182 new jobs, purchasing Articulated vehicles, and preparing for the Simcoe Street BRT. By the time the next 4 years are up, DRT may be able to take over operations of North and Whitby service as they will have that new facility with all of those new jobs.

    Good Luck and All the best. Hope to see you on the streets as I use DRT routes operated by PW in Whitby almost every day.

    DRT owns and funds the entire system, PWT is only the operator for Whitby and North Services. They are responsible for drivers, storage of busses (owned by DRT) and doing basic maintenance such as refueling, cleaning of graffiti, and cleaning the vehicles. So when you see an PWT job posting, it is to become a DRT driver following DRT’s guidelines and training procedures, but rather than being paid by The Regional Municiaplity of Durham, your paid by PWTransit Canada Inc

    General Subway/RT Discussion

    There are LED’s under every station on the map, if a TR is on Line 2(which has happened as mentioned above) it needs to show the connection line stations at Kennedy for Line 3. someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t there already LED’s for Eglinton once that line is in place?
