  1. What I meant was after that DD accident a few months ago, didn't they banned DDs from operating on the 6 on weekends? I'm wondering when will DDs go back out on that route on weekends.
  2. 1) Has OC put back double decker buses on weekends after that accident a few weeks ago? 2) Anyone thinks OC's Line 1 will open before Waterloo's Ion LRT or vice versa? These two seem to be the major hot 2019 Ontario transit topics.

    GO Transit

    https://www.blogto.com/sports_play/2019/02/go-bus-showing-toronto-auto-show-year/ That bus is nearly 4 years old though.
  4. Which set of Inveros will retire due to the Line 1 opening (reducing bus requirements) plus the LFS order? Will they be retired from oldest set or random units?

    Wow I never knew MtD can hold close to 500 buses! I thought it was the same size as the other 4 large garages.

    https://www.blogto.com/city/2019/01/go-transit-promises-more-trains-help-overcrowding/ Can someone explain to someone not familiar with GO Trains why they cancelled that 4:50pm express train to accommodate a train to Kitchener? Or am I reading something wrong?

    That's not what the wiki says. Where do you see Dec 2005 as the built date for this? The 7900s were mostly in service in Spring 2006 when they started testing the 1000s. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Toronto_Transit_Commission_1000-1149

    Are these relocations going to be on file like the CRLVs but can be switch to Leslie at any given moment or are they going to be like the buses where it's semi permanent?

    Don't forget Sheppard Yonge bus terminal used to be outside the fare paid zone and you had to pay a fare or show a pass / transfer to board buses there prior to Line 4 opening. They didn't change that part of the terminal after Line 4 open so it's made as if it's still outside the fare paid zone.
  11. No. NFI bought NABI and got rid of their own LFW and BRT models after all their orders were completed. Why make different models when they do the same thing? They would just consolidate all their newly acquired plants to make the Xcelsior.

    The new driver windows leave a huge gap between it and the first passenger window. Looks weird. https://www.blogto.com/city/2018/11/ttc-just-got-new-fleet-buses/
  14. It took them 23 years to figure that out! That window has never changed since the LFS first came out in 1995 albeit it had the rectangular edges back then.

    Did they changed the deployment schedule again by putting 501 in front of 511 and 505 as per the schedule below because of the lack of ALRVs available? When 511 revert back to streetcars, will it take precedence of the Flexities over 501? http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/New_Vehicles/New_Streetcars/index.jsp
