  1. So it’s gonna be a while then
  2. Do you think Queensway buses will never get that new liveries like other divisions? (Other than few 86xx’s) I think it is really rare to see any buses in that new design especially in the west side of the city. I could see many buses in new liveries at many parts of the city but the West end.
  3. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    To talk more about 123 Shorncliffe.. I think the reliability of the route should be improved a little bit.. After 3pm, the route is packed on both ways (towards Kipling or Sherway/Long Branch). I have to say Sherway Gardens is the only major malls in Toronto which does not have good public transit access. I know Yorkdale, Eaton Centre, or Fairview is accessible by subway, but Sherway only relies on buses.. I think 15 Evans, 80 Queensway, and 123 Shorncliffe are the only three buses to Sherway.. and 15 and 80 are very infrequent even during the rush hours.. so most of the people uses 123 as a result. I've been working at Sherway Gardens for the last few months, and I always see 123 buses being packed after East Mall during the afternoon rush, whether it is 123C (which goes via North Queen and plazas with Bestbuy, Marks, and Walmart), or 123D (which goes directly to The East Mall) It is also same story for southbound towards Sherway or Long Branch too, as people are packed on the bus platform to get on the bus. It gets even worse during some busiest shopping seasons including Christmas... I saw the buses were packed from Sherway, so those people waiting near Walmart at North QUEEN could not get on the bus. I really think TTC need to do something to make Sherway Gardens more accessible by TTC... and I really think they need to plan the route better for the west side and Etobicoke too, as several buses are very unreliable.

    I don't know how the TTC won that Transit System of the Year award... with all of those delays...

  6. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Well, I just discovered that there are service changes coming up from December 17th for the winter schedule, but I found out that TDSB schools doesn't end till December 23rd. That means there will be no school services from December 17th to 23rd. I know some high school has special school service at the end of the school day.. but what will happen on that week? I remember there was a same issue last year..
  7. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    How bout SRT or Sheppard line? Those two lines have way fewer ridership level compared to BD line, and why BD line is the only line getting an reduction? Also, I'm suspecting you are a ttc employee.
  8. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Ryerson students use Yonge line. I see a bunch of people get off at either College or Dundas during morning rush.. or even during the day time
  9. Miscellaneous TTC Discussion & Questions

    Does anyone know why the TTC reduces service on BD line (Line 2) during the holiday or summer season? I know Line 1 has more ridership level compared to line 2, but line 2 has a ridership level which is hard to be ignored.. Looks like they are discriminating people living in the west and east side of the city Is it related to track or fleet maintenance issue? Since line 2 operates with older cars.
  10. PRESTO - GTA Discussion

    so time based transfer is coming, that is a good news. I'm still wondering why the TTC did not implement a presto machine with a display of remaining fare. I don't like the current system because one time I didn't know my presto card was out of balance when I got on the bus

    http://www.blogto.com/city/2017/02/theres-now-wi-fi-54-ttc-stations/ Do you think the TTC can install wifi at all stations until May? I saw there's no sign of installation at Islington

    https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/01/25/ttc-gets-money-for-drug-testing-but-not-subway-safety-plan.html Another evidence that TTC is treating their riders like animals.. (Dogs and pigs)

    http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/father-son-file-4m-lawsuit-against-ttc-for-altercation-with-security-1.3248500 If the TTC is not found guilty for this case.. I don't consider Canada as a democratic country.. It was definitely illegal to punch a rider for no reason
  15. TTC Delays and Disruptions

    Yeah I recognized some trains stay longer at some stations like Ossington, Christie, Jane, and Keele
