    Spadina Subway Extension

    York U would want absolutely no bus traffic in the campus loop with the exception for their shuttles. Sent from my ALCATEL ONE TOUCH 5020T using Tapatalk

    TTC in the news

    I hope a study was done during construction to see if it was beneficial to have atleast the 58A run straight to Lawrence STN, so that atleast theres a Pearson-Yonge subway service during the daytime plus somewhat increased frequency even if its every 3rd 58A goes to Lawrence STN during rush

    To me personally, if its not labelled on the map, I don't believe would be an express stop. The second confusing thing is the announcement for Keele Street when the bus is on St Clair going East of Keele/Weston to Old Weston. Errors happen, so its something that really needs clarification.

    Lately, a couple of buses have announcements for Keele Street when the 41E is heading east on St Clair West. The problem is that most operators stop at Old Weston, which I don't believe is an express stop. I wonder what is up with that. Old Weston was never an express stop since the 41E northbound got rerouted from Weston Road. Its not too much of a complaint as it is an annoyance, because if they're doing that, they might as well stop at Rogers Road and Old Weston Road (which a select few actually do), and while they're at it, might as well stop at 3400 Keele Street just for the sake of it.

    Streetcar News

    Wouldn't it be awesome/funny if they redid that sign as a part of the SLRT opening day? They'll probably just change the graphic though to distance it as far away from the streetcar graphic as possible I assume.

    1109 was involved in a collision with a car at Brimley and Lawrence on the 131E. I don't think it made news headlines, but the rear of the car was smashed up, and that bus was pretty packed I think, since I was on the bus right behind and we had people on the front steps of 7103 before we took off to STC.

    The eastbound platform of Pape station has some sort of blue strips with screw holes, and a couple of metal bars/plating has been installed. The westbound platform has some of the blue strips too, but I don't think it had any metal bars/plating or if so, there were probably one or two of those. I will post a picture tomorrow night to show.

    TTC Nova LFS orders

    Chances are that it will probably be push bar to open door for most buses at least. TTC had bad experiences with customers not reading the signs when they had the LFS demo bus back in the late 90s, but you could say the same about the idiots pushing the rear doors on the fishbowl's final years.

    TTC Nova LFS orders

    It would be interesting if Nova sweeps the floor in terms of the bus contracts, but a little variety couldn't hurt (LFS artic + D40LF), but I guess time will tell on who gets the next round of shots

    I think it would make more sense to extend the 352 to Islington Ave. to meet up with the 311 to *complete* the grid for the 352, unless that also has to go to Pearson.

    Delaying the awarding of a bus contract won't make the buses last any longer* *GM Fishbowl Excluded

    Develop a TTC Train Simulator

    Might as well just start off with the Sheppard line. Its 100% underground and just 5 stations long. Also, the person that was doing the BD line for BVE stopped at/around Spadina.

    Streetcar News

    They probably will be loud, seeing as the new streetcar design and specifications will have the somewhat open outdoor environment in mind and not importing them from trains on their way to the scrappy to save a few bucks.
