    TTC GM Fleet Reminiscing

    Some of the very first D800s in 7xxx series also had some rear bump on the roof similar to 8477-8486. An A/C compartment that was never used?

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    I read there are 170 LFS hybrids and 85 more to come after this batch. Is this a political forced purchase consider TTC didn't like the hybrids and are early retiring them as these new ones are coming in? Or are these 2nd gen hybrids really that much better?

    Bombardier Flexity Deliveries

    Don't forget 4400 and 4401 are not with TTC. That means there are exactly 100 units out of Leslie now. Once they get 4471 and 4478 to Quebec, that's 2 more spaces for 4502 and 4503.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    I was reading last year's articles about Line 1 ATC and wonder if they are still on schedule to turn ATC back on between Dupont and VMC in the fall of 2018? Anyone know the exact time when this will happen if it does happen this year?

    TTC Service Changes

    Is the 85 Sheppard East a mistake? He said on Saturdays the local branch will change from artics to standard buses. 85 was never using artics on weekends to begin wtih.

    Isn't the 2nd plant going to start producing and delivering by Q4 of this year? Or did I get my dates wrong...

    Oh yes my bad. Only the regular 501 has stopped going to there. The 407 express branches still goes in which basically screws all the local York Region students (unless they take GO) while giving Brampton students continued one fare access.

    https://toronto.citynews.ca/2018/09/10/yrt-busses-no-longer-allowed-york-university-campus-thousands-students-forced-pay-double-fare/ I noticed Brampton also stopped their ZUM service to York U despite announcing this change much later than YRT did in the summer. What if they were to introduce a tap off / tap on system only at York U Stn where students tap their Presto at this specific machine and it deducts the TTC fare they had to pay at Pioneer Village / 407 / VMC Stn? That eliminates the double fare they have to pay. In addition, they enter York U Stn tapping this specific machine will allows them to transfer to YRT / ZUM for free? With Presto, it shouldn't be that hard to do the calculations with this specific type of machine only installed at this station.

    This year for Nuit Blanche, they are offering free service all night for Line 3. How will they block off people taking this from the connecting bus services at STC, Lawrence East Stn and Kennedy Stn? For buses, I assume they will ask drivers to check fares upon boarding at these stations. But what about the Line 2 at Kennedy?

    Maybe Peter Witt 2766 will get it too. Along with full set of LED lights and an A/C unit.

    Brampton Transit/Züm

    Instead of arguing back and forth, go and ride one yourself and find out. They will sound different if they are indeed XD60 instead of XDE60. You can even track them on Transsee so you know exactly what route and when it will arrive.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    I've noticed there's around 3 Flexities on 511 on the weekdays during this board period but 512 has CLRVs running on it everyday. Why didn't they make 512 100% Flexity before attempting to put some on 511? Are they meant for the 2 weeks of CNE which begins this Friday? On the other hand, 504 has been pretty good ever since they did that construction split. Most Dundas West Stn to Distillery branch cars are Flexities.

    Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Does anyone know or have an educated guess how TTC plans to implement the day pass with Presto or do they plan to continue offering the day pass even after all other non cash non Presto fare medias are discontinued? I'm more interested in how they plan to do the 2 adults day pass on Presto on weekends / holidays if they do intend to discontinue the paper day pass.
