  1. It’s so disjointed in Ontario. I’m relying on Twitter for vaccine updates. I don’t even have a Twitter account.
  2. And of course Ontario still refuses to give more paid sick days.
  3. If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest hospital. If you need emotional support, help is available. For non-emergencies, please consult with the mental health resources available in your Province or Territory.

  4. The thing about capacity is more to do with what the facilities can handle. They can’t really just stop producing non-COVID vaccines. And if they don’t have any excess capacity, they can start producing COVID vaccines. The government has funded facilities in Montreal, Saskatoon, and Vancouver. Unfortunately, like a lot of things, the approval and construction takes a lot of time. The Montreal facility is scheduled to open in September. Honestly, I think our vaccine situation is pretty middle ground. We’re not the best and we’re not the worst. The US and UK are pretty much outliers wi
  5. Two of my neighbours and a couple of friends in their 50s and 60s got the AstraZeneca vaccine weeks ago. They appear to be doing well. If you have any concerns, a quick chat with your GP would probably be helpful.
  6. It took over a decade to go from the TTC’s first hybrid buses (which they had enough problems that they stopped buying) to the fleet of their LFS HEVs today. Development of the HybriDrive system goes all the way back to the late 90s. I guess it’s hard to predict how viable a fleet of 300 battery-electric buses will be in a couple of years.
  7. TTC’s Green Bus Program: Preliminary Results of TTC’s Head-to-Head eBus Evaluation
  8. Interestingly, the private coaches in Silicon Valley have bike racks on the rear. Dunno how that’s been working out, though.
  9. Pickering Transit brochure courtesy of Richard Oldfield. Interestingly, it lists four 1994 Orion V shells (gliders) available in 1996. So that would be two for Pickering, one for Stratford, and one for Pembroke. I believe all of these had a donor Orion Is. Two more gliders were built in 2000—one for Stratford and one for Barrie. These ones are noticeably different with air conditioning, newer windows, plug-type rear doors, and a wider track. I can’t find any link to an Orion I with these two.
  10. Probably a good idea to wait for the TTC’s own report.
  11. Are they considering stopping at the Glen Rouge Campground on Kingston Rd?
  12. Would that go via Finch and Meadowvale or Kingston, Sheppard and Meadowvale?
  13. The LFSe+ is a slow charge bus (3.5h) but can use overhead fast charging to top up. Grande West launched their Vicinity Lightning EV this year.
  14. Post hidden. I’m sure people in crisis don’t need to accidentally stumble upon a detailed account of the worst moment in their life.
  15. I really dislike having to use a cab. Maybe a bit irrational, but I feel much safer on a bus with a few people than cooped up in a cab with the driver.
