  1. Cornwall Transit posted their budget proposal on Facebook. They're looking to purchase 2 40-ft buses from the Metrolinx program (I assume they still have the contract with Nova Bus), as well as an Arboc to replace the 2011 Crestline Handi-Transit bus. The proposal also stated that they want to invest in bus stop upgrades including new shelters.
  2. Cornwall Transit has announced the re-instatement of late evening service as of tonight. Buses will run their hourly schedule as normal until 11:30 pm.
  3. Some squeaky clean 3rd gens are out on the 52 this afternoon. I saw a 2nd gen the other day. It was too far to get the number.
  4. Are they expected to replace the Van Hools artics? From what I understand they were reconditioned only a couple of years ago.
  5. Just saw 1229 on Route 52 POB Allumetiere.
  6. Just saw a 2010 3rd gen on Route 52. I take it a few of them were transferred to the des Affaires garage? It's not the first time since the change to Saturday service on weekdays.
  7. There was since an updated memo: March 25 Update: Effective today, Cornwall Transit bus service will operate until 8:45 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Passengers requiring essential travel can contact Transit to make arrangements for bus service after 8:45 p.m. Also, seniors can call Transit at 613-930-2636 to make special arrangements for travelling to grocery stores with seniors morning shopping hours. Cornwall Transit is reducing its service schedule, effective Monday, March 23. From Monday to Friday, an enhanced Saturday service will be implemented. Cornwall Transit is urging that passengers only travel when it is essential to do so. Conventional frequency will be: Every 60 minutes from 6:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Every 30 minutes from 10:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. Every 60 minutes from 6:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. Service to the Cornwall Business Park will remain in place. The Community Bus Service route will not operate on Wednesdays. Handi-Transit will operate from 6:06 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. and will accommodate all essential trips, including medical appointments, dialysis appointments, and travel to grocery stores and banks. To book a trip, call 613-930-2636. On Saturdays, conventional bus frequency will be every 60 minutes from 6:45 a.m. to 8:45 p.m., and there will be no community bus service. There will be no charter service.
  8. I just saw three ex-GO coaches on TV. They're in Fort Lauderdale, part of the group of charter buses bringing the evacuated cruise ship passengers to their aircraft.
  9. Cornwall Transit is scaling back service further than initially planned. Saturday service will run Monday to Saturday until 8:45 pm. An on-demand service for essential travel only will be available after 8:45 pm. The Business Park routes will continue to run; however 71-Express is suspended for the time being.
  10. Cornwall Transit posted on their facebook page indicating that they are reducing service as of Monday. Looks like it'll similar to Saturday service levels, plus the Industrial runs. There was no mention if 71-Express will be suspended....
  11. Just saw 2025 on Route 371 heading into Ottawa
  12. I got a quick glimpse of a 2020 LFS running Route 800 westbound on Taché this morning. It's the first I've seen the accessible symbol on the Route 800 destination sign.
  13. Saw 1730 on route 55 at 16:55 this afternoon at Aylmer Rd and Wilfred-Lavigne. I suppose it may have been extra run after doing the Bus-o-neige shuttle.
  14. I saw a 2012 artic on the 59 Ottawa last night in Aylmer. It had the accessible symbol on the destination sign. I don't recall the 59 being a designated accessible route...
