  1. Where are the Orion VII's on anyone's list? (Jokes)
  2. CN589 does a various of different destinations throughout the week. The Wednesday and on request Sunday need to go over the Walkley Diamond. I would think it would detour via VIA Rail subs, but not 100%. I think Oc4526 was thinking of the NRC trip south of Greenboro Stn (?). the Sunday goes to Twin Elm (google it) and Wednesday goes to Arnprior
  3. The Diamond at Walkley Yard is ripped out just north of Greenboro Stn... Wonder what CN589 is doing now...
  4. Bus 5050 is the first bus to get the new IVN software and it is in demo now. Difference is better specs on the computer itself, with the different layout coming later this year. As well as next booking, there will be more 95 DD runs on Saturday, with a couple interlining with the 4 and 104, and the DD runs will be out later. Last one in the garage for 22:45.
  5. Starting in December 2017 there will be route changes for Kanata South. http://councillorallanhubley.ca/community/transit/oc-transpo/2017-2/ Looks like the 167 will become all day, and 252 be extended down Old Richmond, to Hope Side, into the Cope/Romina area, to Blackstone... Do not know what will happen with the Bells Corers part of the route. That Probably means the 164 is done
  6. Can someone remind me of the new STO Garage should be up and running?
  7. I am hearing this is only happening to 60's with emissions problems. But not 100%
  8. Is this Kanata South? If so I agree
  9. Stops along Woodroffe between Baseline and Hunt Club have been changed 168 does not go near Legget
  10. Here's a good story, Driver Ken McLeod (#4 senior man) and his 600th game doing the 400's series buses. Though I mostly see him on 404 nowadays https://www.facebook.com/ottawasenators/videos/10155033059654477/
  11. Route 16 in my opinion is such a confusing route with all the different school trip, and destinations points. I try to avoid to look at the schedule on the routes and maps of octranspo.com for route 16. Better example is 118. The 118 during rush hours is a mix of Invero and 60. If there were enough 60's the 118 would be all 60 foot buses during rush hour. But because of the frequency there's not enough. During the day there are enough resources to have 60 foot's on 118. Evening after 1900, it's Invero's because... That's where the office people excuse comes in. The 111 is the same story really. back in the day maybe about 10+ years ago, OC would assign routes bus types. So the 118 was FULL 100% 60 foot. the 96 was FULL Invero buses. Times have changed.
  12. I rather see it go as a pilot project instead. Reason's why are because we all know how reliably the NSAS are. And the way Stephen Blais is talking, it sounds like the software will be run through Clever Device. Second of all if a driver is doing a time point at Mackenzie King or somewhere, that announcement will be playing every 10 to 20 seconds. Playing at every stop it will get annoying, but on the other side, that's what i said when OC got interior announcements. Now, I am not blind or visually impaired, but I find drivers ask the person who is waiting at the bus stop what bus they want, or tell the person what route they are. If it is not rush hour, you often hear Code 50's being put out for the next Bus along Bank street or something to look for a person who is visually impaired waiting somewhere. And finally, after playing around with half the buses, these external speakers do not even work. I'd say about 40% of buses do not have a working external speaker.
  13. Where does it say anything about these changes? Using the drop down tab on the routes and maps, it says the 61 and 62 only go Stittsville to Tunney's.
  14. (Friday Feb. 17) 6397 on a 162 at Tanger at 23:12 6397 on a 168 at Terry Fox at 23:30. The is a Merivale run (118-24) and the time it leaves the garage it's really an anything run. Havn't seen a para on it yet though
  15. 806X on a 118 Hurdman at 11:09 Leaving Terry Fox. Run 118-7. Should be out later on 118, 85, and 94 until 18:00 ish.
