  1. Thanks. How about using the legacy day pass for the weekend 2 adults portions of it? Will they and the fare inspectors accept it because TTC got rid of it for the Presto day passes?
  2. I still have some TTC Day Passes (Q4 2019 last version) un-used. Can they still be used or are they all relics?
  3. If they keep this low frequency, they don't need to order anymore LRVs after the west extension opens. lol
  4. Nitpick... They are the "Go Anywhere" variants! I think you mean they are not the "SuperLO" variants?
  5. His discussion of moving to 18 yrs life cycle are for the electric buses since they offset the higher purchase cost VS diesel and hybrids. It does not mean current fleet will retire at 18 yrs.
  6. Don't forget the LFSAs will be close to their 12 yrs mark after the SRT is closed. Somehow I doubt the first batch of electric buses will be artics hence we'll be down a significant amount of artics by that time unless they plan on keeping all artics until at least 15 yrs?
  7. And less chance of drivers having the "Nova Neck" issue.
  8. 504 free from 5:30 to 11:30 on April 8. You can ride an entire streetcar line in Toronto for free this week (blogto.com)
  9. The proper term is Light Metro. Similar to the Skytrain, Confederation Line (except that one uses LF stock) and the REM.
  10. Speaking of Cornell Terminal... anyone has any updates on when this will open? The Vivanext site says Spring 2022 anytime from now to the end of June.
  11. What about 1921-22? Are they also short range?
  12. Metrolinx releases new station maps for Scarborough Subway Extension – Metrolinx News Station maps preliminary for the 3 SSE stations.
  13. Watch the first ever Finch West LRT vehicle test run in new video – Metrolinx News Surprised they plan to couple them together for testing. Line 6 will initially operate with 1 car train anyways. Coupling them together makes as long as the O Train Line 1.
  14. Clark Ave to Hwy 407 also doesn't have any.
  15. Metrolinx posted an update on the 2 vehicles. They still haven't numbered the 1st unit that arrived.
  16. Seems they have added back the 5th station in the Line 1 extension to RHC. Keith Irish on Twitter: "I'm plsed to share news the provincial govt has added a Royal Orchard station to its Yonge North Subway Extension project. This is good news for #Thornhill. However, this area will likely be designated a “Transit Oriented Community” and we must brace for the impact that'll have. https://t.co/PLzHk9iGGK" / Twitter
  17. Metrolinx, Infrastructure Ontario and Crosslinx Transit Solutions settle COVID and technical claims as Eglinton Crosstown Line moves forward | Metrolinx News
  18. The electric bus order will have 2 suppliers and 1 is NFI (not written in stone but we all know that from the initial electric bus test report). So it doesn't matter if Nova wins the hybrid order; TTC will get a massive order from NFI regardless. Don't forget one key factor in previous bus orders was the TTC kept on complaining about NFI not revealing their parts supplier hence they kept going with Nova.
  19. GO Expansion set to electrify the region – With rapid all-day service and new electric trains | Metrolinx News
  20. Toronto complaining of cold commutes as TTC implements new open window policy (blogto.com) Not exactly news but no where else to put this.
  21. Metrolinx puts out call for teams to work on Finch Station as part of Yonge North Subway Extension | Metrolinx News
  22. GO Transit is charging ahead with an electric-powered bus pilot | Metrolinx News
  23. https://blog.metrolinx.com/2021/12/08/metrolinx-ceo-statement-on-refined-route-for-yonge-north-subway-extension/ Line 1 extension will now have 90 deg curves similar in sharpness as the two by Union Stn. It'll slow the speed of the trains. Is that a good thing?
  24. Anyone know why the 21xx artics have the MiExpress type seats instead of the MiLocal seats found in the LFSes? Were they ordered as MiExpress but last minute painted into MiLocal scheme due to needing more orange buses?
