    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Every bus and streetcar has a waybill on it at all times. Everyday a new one is taken out of the division with the vehicle.

    It makes for fast and convenient boarding and alighting. If we didn’t open all doors at each stop, most people would just stand there waiting for the doors to open instead of just pushing the button. This would increase dwell times at stops.
  3. Yup, there was definitely a time during the summer of 2017 when some ALRVs were deployed onto the 505 and 506 during the Queen Street construction. I distinctly recall my first and only time ever operating 4212 was as a 505 on one particular day..
  4. 4082 is retired as well.

    If they didn’t make you aware that you require them before you start training then you don’t have anything to worry about. I believe the dresscode initially calls for dress shoes. I believe you will be provided with a voucher after you start training to put toward the purchase of safety shoes.
  6. 4246 is retired afterall
  7. 4078 has definitely seen it's last day of service. Noticed it at Russell with a whole bunch of parts missing.
  8. I’m not so sure 4246 is retired. It seems as though it is currently being used as a mule at Leslie to shunt the dead cars around the yard.
  9. It looks like it’s over for 4082. Noticed it in Russell carhouse without a headlight.

    TTC Application Process

    .32 days of training (does not include weekends or holidays) .First few days of training are at Hillcrest .You’ll be based out of Russell/Leslie division .You’ll be taught on the new cars at the beginning of training and they’ll teach you the old cars toward the end .Midterm written test, Final written test, Circle check test, Coupling test(old and new cars), B-23 test, Midterm driving test, Final driving test (old and new cars) .Older vehicles are nicer to drive in my opinion .Large stopping distance must be given, especially in slippery rail conditions .Stop,Check,Go all switches and always ensure that they are set for your intended direction of travel .When leaving a main line over a manual switch, you are required to go back and set it for the main-line direction once you have passed over it .10km/h over all facing and trailing switches until your rear trucks have passed over them .25km/h entering signallized intersections .25km/h entering crosswalks
  11. I don’t know if it is officially decommissioned, but I noticed 4027 in Russell carhouse with a missing headlight and some interior electronics torn out. I also saw the A section of 4238 being halled east along Kingston Road on a flatbed today.
  12. Nope, I also noticed 4214, 4224, 4208, 4210, 4200, 4215, 4203, 4230, 4247 and 4237. On other tracks in the yard at the time I also saw 4207, 4242, 4204, 4221 and 4243. The cars sitting at Leslie right now are 4201, 4212, 4213, 4216, 4220, 4222, 4232, 4235, 4238, 4239, 4244, 4245 and 4246
  13. I believe you mistook it for 4182, which is indeed missing part of its skirt and is still sitting beside 4202. Had a walk through the yard today and noticed that 4218 and 4251 seemed to be missing a substantial amount of parts. I think it’s safe to say that these 2 cars will not see service again.
  14. That’s true, but it hasn’t officially been listed as decommissioned on this thread.
