  1. To be fair, the reasoning for the cancelled stations from that plan is technically a good thing, those are stations that Metrolinx have been planning as well for both the RER program and for the Ontario Line for years, the station at Gerard is currently having detailed design work completed. When MX was planning these they have indicated that they will still serve Smartrack 2026 is a big blow though
  2. There have been in previous months TEC reports and Committee of the whole presentations. But none in January.
  3. Some time after implementation and until November 6th, that’s when they made it clear that because it will take way too long to reimplement service in the phased approach as OnDemand ridership has to reach 20bph in each area a route would serve, so they scrapped that, and are implementing routes as OnDemand zones start to reach that 20bph number. Presently the only area that has experienced great amounts of demand has been Pickering and Courtice. In west Pickering there are approximately 8bph and in Courtice, there’s approximately 5-6.
  4. They’ve cancelled the phased program and are launching individual routes as they’re necessary
  5. The TEC agenda for Jan 6th is out, Notable things include: Simcoe Street Rapid Transit pilot essentially got kyboshed by IBI group, In that report (produced by DRT) it made recconebdations to move the NB stop at Adelaide to the Far side of the intersection to speed up red light waits, avoid merging out of the right turn lane, and “to provide a connection to the future service along Adelaide Avenue” this would presumably recommend that the future service along Adelaide would be the 412, hopefully returning around when this pilot was set to take place, April or May. No
  6. An Ex-GRT 2nd Gen Nova just passed me going EB on the 401 at Holt Road in Clarington
  7. That’s the reply they sent to my tweet. the mechanical issue actually turns out to be two small fires they’ve had recently, and the one on 8567 earlier this year have prompted them to sideline them until further investigation
  8. I don’t think so... it’s never been the case DRT has done something like this, especially considering how many of them are in our fleet at this point. there’s none out as of yet today, and PULSE buses are operating on the 902 again, something has happened As of right now, all I know is that at Westney division, they are (according to a driver I know who works there) have do not drive signs in the dashes UPDATE: there’s some major fleet movements as well, 8545 is a Westney unit on the 405C 8461,8468 and 8470 are in Whitby but they’re all Westney units

  10. I wonder the same, I’ve reached out to Audra McKinley at DRT, she’s the GM of maintenance and Supervisor of operations. She hasn’t responded, DRT is set to receive 16 promasters I believe between 2021 and 2023
  11. DRT received a number of new low floor Arboc vehicles, there are at least 3 I’ve seen so far, 5103 is at Raleigh and 5104-05 are at Westney. Not sure how many total were getting, but they’re already in service. here’s a photo next to the older cutaways like the PULSE Novas, they’ve lost the grey skirting
  12. GO Transit hasn’t entirely killed the service to Newcastle yet, I live in Newcastle, and OnDemand is way better anyway than the two hour frequency on the 90. Nevertheless, GO Still services Newcastle (in town) on route 88A with three trips in the peak directions. 88 still services both the Bowmanville and Newcastle Park and Rides 88A serves the Courtice Road and Oshawa park and rides as well.
  13. They don’t hear it this way unfortunately, right now it’s all sunshine and rainbows cause ridership as a whole is up, now financially counting for about 50% of firebox (or PRESTO I guess) revenue from pre covid levels. DRT will be happy to tel you have much ridership has grown due to routes like the 902 and 917 which were long overdue. I live in Rural Clarington where for me the OnDemand Service is a godsend compared to the 90 which ran through Newcastle every 2 hours most of the day. That doesn’t mean that OnDemand is the same godsend to the people that live in West Pickering, East
  14. Not sure how many there are, but there’s already 8574. im not gonna lie, I’m kinda disappointed. ”something we’ve never done before” of course you’ve never put a mask on the front of a bus... You know, I may be the only person who likes the new network better than the old one, by a long shot. I do believe some more community routes are needed, but where I’m living, I’ve never had better and more reliable service than OnDemand and the 902
  15. DRT a has some announcement coming ”something they’ve never done before” Genuinely no idea what it is, but I assume we will know following the TEC meeting tomorrow
  16. DRT Does indeed have some service changes coming. effective December 7th 2020 Route 405 Wilson will see new 405C Branch serving the Delpark Homes Community Centre every hour, seven days a week. Effective January 3rd 2021 Routes 216 and 224 will reduce service to every 30 minutes in Peak from every 15 minutes. 902 and 915 will operate every 30 minutes from every 15 on Saturday mornings and Sunday’s. this means that on Sunday’s the 902B will not operate. Major changes: 403 Park will have a new 403C branch, operating from the South Oshawa Employment area in
  17. Sorry I never provided my most recent update. Some services will be coming back! Im not sure what routes they are, where exactly they will go and when they will arrive. Stops with the “Future Transit Stop” signs will be stops on routes with returning service. Monday, January 4th is the expected date of service launch on a modified route 902B King, Operating EB to Courtice Road, When returning WB a the route will now service George Reynolds Drive to replace service previously provided on the 412. Stops on WB George Reynolds do indeed have the signs for future tr
  18. Not presently, and when they did, there was not internal route number for it, 889 and 890 are operated at DRT’s expense, the Whitby shuttle isn’t financially covered by DRT, rather PWT
  19. Looks like it was just the grand opening for the newly renovated Cooksville GO
  20. Minister of Transportation, associate minister, Kaleed Rasheed (MPP Mississauga east Cooksville), Metrolonx and IO CEOs are meeting in half an hour (10:30 on November 10th) to talk about GO Improvements, anyone have any idea what it could be?
  21. iirc the design was able to fit the ones currently used by Megabus.
  22. Neither actually, 889 is Raleigh Driver Shuttle 890 is Westney Driver Shuttle
  23. I can confirm that there has NOT been an in service 902 with an LFSA on it, there has been three occurrences in which an LFSA has been training in Bowmanville, but never in service.
