    TTC T1 Movement thread

    5000-5001, 5006-5007 is left alone at Wilson, do you know why?

    PRESTO - GTA Discussion

    Well your claim does not make sense.. Many other cities who have similar system to Presto (Like Oyster in London, TMoney in Seoul) clearly displays remaining balance. And those systems do not have any delays as a result of that. And if your claim is true, many other transit systems with Presto should follow the same.. I think TTC is just trying to find leeways to avoid talking about higher cost to implement balance display, which was addressing about privacy and AODA issue.

    PRESTO - GTA Discussion

    I still don't understand why they do not have a balance display.. I've used Miway, GO, YRT, and VIVA.. and all of them except for the TTC was showing my card balance. It is super inconvenient that I can't see my balance because you could end up being stranded if you don't find out you're running out of your balance. I heard it was about privacy issue, and why TTC has different translation about privacy compared to the other transit systems? I only see they are just making an excuse.. (I think it is mostly a cost issue rather than privacy)

    I live in Markland Wood and take 49 or 50 often. Therefore, I don’t really see those buses.. except I see some 32s when I have to drive to Eglinton.

    I know.... l live in central part of Etobz and I only see new livery buses on 46 and 191 only. I think it is just a coincidence that Queensway was the first division to get presto readers, while they are also the lone division without new livery fleets.

    GO Transit

    Some people say it was a revenge from Ford Government.. As they hate Patrick Brown, the current mayor of Brampton.. As a matter of fact, Brampton elected few conservative MPs, but looks like the government is still not impressed about the NDP having seats in Brampton

    Im pretty sure any of the 1000-1149, 7906-7979, and 8000-8099 will get a new painting.. and that is why I can’t see any buses with new painting in Etobicoke area.

    Well, the problems is that the government has to be clear about the detail.. It seems like Doug Ford is trying to push through it without being clear.. If they are keeping it confidential, I am 100% sure they are trying to bring negative impact on transit, such as make TTC private.. So far, Doug Ford triggered the worst case scenarios for many issues, such as invoking notwithstanding clause on the court’s decision of illegal to reduce the number of city council members in Toronto. He will be remembered as the worst Premier ever for many Ontarians except for those dotards.

    Deleted that part.. but Doug Ford still need to feel ashamed
  10. Definitely 37A... It is causing very inconsistent headway for the whole 37 Islington route.

    However, it looks like 7900-7979 will retire firstt since most of the Orion Vll hybrids got VISION while none of the 79xx got it.

    https://globalnews.ca/news/4834294/ontario-government-upload-toronto-subway/ This means there will be no more transit within the city of Toronto Doug Ford is only interested in building transit to suburbs rather than improving within the city. That’s why he is trying to strip power from the city of Toronto He is just an asshole and dumbass.. Im hoping his political career will end like his late brother.

    Ya that’s the point. In the last 10 year, I think pretty much all divisions got at least a set of new fleets except Queensway.

    Why can’t Queensway accommodate 83xx while It can for 8100-8219. Also, I feel like TTC tends to put outdated vehicles to Queensway. They had D40LF until 2016, and it lasted longer than older Nova RTS at Arrow Rd. With all of the earlier Orion Vlls are gone (7400-7882), It looks like 7900-7979 is the oldest right now.

    Just a general question. I know several OrionVIIs in the Queensway division (7900-7979, and 8000-8099) could retire in a year or two, and I am wondering what kind of fleets will they get in the future? I know Queensway has few Nova LFS (8406, 8428-8436, 8605-8617) right now, but the other LFSs are now at Birchmount. I remember they were at Arrow Road at the beginning though. I am wondering if Queensway will get new fleets (We still don't know what will it be) or get another old fleet from other division (probably LFS from Birchmount) after the retirement of OrionVll.
