  1. If the LFSes are not replacing the Orions (which will retire probably in a year or two).. then which one will be replacing them? I know electric or hybrid buses are gradually replacing them.. but QUEENSWAY can't hold hybrids and electric vehicles unfortunately
  2. Ya this is my thought as well.. There should be at least one branch going through Jane.
  3. https://stevemunro.ca/2021/06/28/metrolinx-gives-toronto-the-finger-twice/ Well.. Doug Ford's double-standard and hypocrisy is just fxxxin ridiculous It is so funny that him and his brother (who's laid in his coffin now) was ALL-IN for underground transit... and now they are going ALL-IN for overground section at Leslieville just because the riding there is an NDP riding.. There are very strong opposition within the community about building section of Ontario Line overground, and it seems like Metrolinx and MTO is just giving them middle fingers now. I know the Metrolinx
  4. Yes, It is ridiculous that they are making all services on Jane to stop at Mount Dennis station, which is about a kilometre away from Jane & Eglinton intersection. It would have been little better if they only left 935 to bypass Mount Dennis station, but the plan seems to be very ridiculous.. and that would be a big blow for those traveling between Jane Station and anywhere north of Jane and Eglinton. Do you think it would have been better if the branches were divided like that? Branch 1: Jane Station-Steeles/Pioneer Village Station (same as original 35 Jane) Branch 2: Jane
  5. Ya, express service should have been stayed going through Eglinton... Diverting to Mount Dennis station seems to be a huge detour.. And those Ford brothers are evil because they are full of hypocrisy and double standards. I remember they went ALL-IN for building subways and build everything underground. However, Doug Ford changed the relief line planned by John Tory to teeny-tiny LRT line.. and they are planning to build it overground along the Leslieville area despite strong oppositions within the community.. It is so ridiculous because he was the one who supported underground trans
  6. I am good with all the changes except for this one.. As a matter of fact, the length between Jane/Eglinton I am pretty sure there are a lot of people taking a ride from Jane to north of Eglinton, and I don't know how many people will like adding extra 10-20 minute to their travel... I think most of the area along Jane north of Eglinton is a low income area, and people rely on the buses a lot.. it would definitely hurt those trying to get to Jane Station This wouldn't have happened if the original Eglinton LRT (which starts from Pearson instead of Mount Dennis) was still alive
  7. So does it mean that we don't have to pay another fare when transferring between Miway and the TTC at either Kipling or Islington Station?? (or vice versa) I live in the corridor where I can use both 49 Bloor West and 50 Burnhamthorpe, and I want to know what will happen once the routes are integrated? Does it mean we can transfer to the TTC subway without extra fare??
  8. So this could mean Islington Station could start the major overhaul, right? I have a feeling that they will demolish that old bus-bay and replace to the one similar style to Kipling. I am wondering how it will be.
  9. Just saw 1416 on 48 Rathburn which is very very odd
  10. Again, I am just wondering why the Queensway is always the last one to get such an update, I think they were the last one to get VISION, and the new livery. One odd thing to mention is that they were actually the first one to get that presto machine. You shouldn't be acting like a grumpy old rude man when someone is just wondering about something.
  11. Everyone has a right to wonder about it to be honest. And older vehicles actually impacts the passenger experience. I've taken the TTC bus for the first time in a while. (49 Bloor West, QUEENSWAY DIVISION) and the Air conditioning was working poorly for both ways of my trip. Anyway, I kinda feel like Queensway is always the last one to get such an update, I think they were the last one to get VISION, and the new livery. One odd thing to mention is that they were actually the first one to get that presto machine.
  12. Well.. I just calculated for fun, and you don't need to be sensitive sir.
  13. I calculated the number of fleets repainted per division (referred to CPTDB WIKI) ARROW RD: 291/291 = 100% EGLINTON: 243/243 = 100% McNICOLL: 265/265 = 100% WILSON: 246/253 = 97.23% (Every fleets except 1364, 1371, 1372, 1373, 1383, 1384, and 1395) MOUNT DENNIS: 271/283 = 95.76% (Every fleets except 1356, 1359, 1378, 1379, 1406, 1407, 1409, 1410, 1412, 1413, 1415 and 1420) MALVERN: 209/243 = 86.01% (Every fleets except 1225, 1226, 1248, 1255, 1271, 1277, 1280, 1288, 1290, 1296, 1299, 1306, 1307, 1310, 1315, 1320, 1321, 1322, 1334, 1335, 1339, 1342, 1343, 1351, 135
  14. So does it mean those non-revenue buses could come back in as an active vehicle?? They might retire in a year or two so I think the chance is mere
  15. It is even more handmedown because they are keep sending repainted nova back to Birchmount while sending one not repainted to Queensway.. I live in Etobicoke.. and 99 percent of the buses I see are not in the new livery… While I see tons of them in the other parts of the city
