  1. Sorry for the wait - the two buses have been added to the Vicinity VIN page.

    ETS's 2018-19 XD40s

    Apparently that was tonight, as the change has been made.

    ETS's 2018-19 XD40s

    This is not the first time you've been warned for criticizing other members in a rude manor. Thanks for the patronizing statement. I think I am able to make my own assumptions on how page titles work, considering I was the one to move them in the first place... </sarcasm>

    Coach Canada

    The 2012 TD925 buses have been undergoing a refurbishment, which involves repainting the buses. The Megabus name and logos have been reapplied (as seen in the photo below, taken May 19, 2019), just not the Megabus Man. He is not present on any of the J4500s that have recently been put into Megabus service, so they are likely doing a brand refresh that does not include Megabus Man on the livery.

    C'mon, please be nice to other Editors. Don't criticize someone for making a minor mistake. Everything on the Wiki is fixable. Thanks for your hard work in creating and populating the page! Don't worry about the naming issue - most pages in the ETS section still use the old "System" name. If I have enough time before the weekend, I'll move the page to the "Service" name.

    Ex-GO Coaches

    No. Route 11 was discontinued after the 2017 season due to low ridership. It was supposed to be gone earlier, but I think GO was not able to announce it early enough.

    OC Transpo 8776

    That photo of 8776 is when it was privately owned. Although it is in OC Transpo livery, it is not an OC Transpo bus at this point. So therefore, any photos of it in its current configuration should not be uploaded and put onto the OC Transpo fleet page.

    Today's Special Sightings

    They had TRs down in Lower Bay for the Doors Open event; I would imagine that this train would have been either heading towards the centre track east of Broadview in order to turn around for the connection to Line 1, or it was heading to Greenwood Yard to be stored overnight.

    Modifying a page title

    The page is titled with the correct capitalization, as you hyperlink shows. There is occasionally an issue when viewing pages on mobile devices where the capitalization of titles goes a bit wonky, but it's not related to the page itself. My personal guess is that it's the autocapitalization feature of phones that does it. I'd prefer to hold off on moving/renaming at this point. I haven't seen any official source to confirm whether the 10-bus add-on order has been cancelled; I'm also questioning whether the original 10 buses will get cancelled outright at this point, making any page movement a moot point.
  11. 1. Only Presto allows you to use a 2-hour transfer, so there's a benefit of that. With the recent fare adjustment, Presto only gives you a $0.15 savings per ride over cash, and it costs $6 to purchase the card. If you didn't already pay for your UP fare it may have the potential to be cheaper to use Presto, but if you buy Day Passes it'll give you more flexibility and probably save you more money. 2. TTC prefers to fully convert one route to Flexity before moving onto the next route. So routes 504, 509, 510, 512 should be fully Flexity, and 506 will be fully CLRV. 501 is the current "transitioning" route so it will have a mix of CLRV and Flexity. The ALRVs were just reactivated from storage last week, so if you're very lucky you might find one out as a last-resort spare or a cover vehicle (most likely on 501). 3. No Proterra or BYD buses have been delivered, so chances of finding one around Canada Day are zero. The XE40s will be based out of Arrow Road garage in the north-west end of the city; it's unknown if they will enter service by the time of your visit, so check one of the online trackers. 4. Some of the streetcar routes are being replaced by buses due to construction (505) or lack of available streetcars (502, 503, 511). They also run some bus trippers to provide extra capacity during rush hour. Otherwise there are a number of other bus routes in the downtown core; just look for route numbers that aren't in the 500s. 5. What are you looking for in a station - frequent service, cool/interesting architecture, nice views?

    General Motorcoach Spottings & Photos

    Both Air France and KLM are part of SkyTeam Alliance. The service was previously operated by Greyhound Canada; while the main branding on the coaches was for KLM, if you look closely there are logos for both Air France and SkyTeam. Perhaps Air France is paying for their branding to be more prominent now, or KLM has another coach. The logo on the front of this coach is for Skyport, which is now owned by Keolis (with a lot of the Autocars Skyport coaches being rebranded with the Keolis logo/"livery"). So they are still operating the YUL-Ottawa shuttle.

    Yes, both Owen Sound and Meaford are in Grey County. (Blue Mountains technically is also in Grey County, but the municipality has its transit service contract with Collingwood, not Simcoe County, which is why the Blue Mountains Link will not become a LINX route). A 3-bus spare pool out of 5 is a pretty healthy 37.5% spare ratio. Also don't forget that Sinton can provide their own backup cutaways, which further increases the spare ratio. They would probably need a 9th bus if they were to add additional routes, but they wouldn't need another bus to improve the spare ratio. Going back on topic, I agree that a bus connecting Owen Sound and Meaford would probably be more useful to residents. It's about a 25-30 minute drive between the two communities, so they could easily run some sort of connecting service with one bus (3 round trips a day, with the bus circulating within Meaford to provide local trips). That would probably generate more ridership than the current model.

    TTC Orion VII Movement List

    That question wasn't directed at you. If you don't know, then don't answer. As for 1682, it is currently tracking at Mount Dennis according to Transsee. However, it was last in service on April 18th, at which time it was at Malvern. Let's see if it enters service at Mount Dennis before saying it was moved there. It could be at Mount Dennis as a parts donor, training bus that broke down, who knows.
