  4. From the email that i received in April.. Greetings from Doors Open Ottawa, This year marks the 20th anniversary of Ottawa’s most beloved architectural event, and I’m happy to say that we will be moving into a hybrid format. What does that mean? Nearly 100 buildings across the city will open their doors virtually, in-person, or a mixture of the two. The full building list will be released on ottawa.ca/doorsopen on May 30.
  5. Noticed that the Ticket Machine at Billing’s is now operational. I managed to talk to an on-site Octranspo employee and he mentioned that all the TVM’s on the Transitway are now active as of this morning.
  6. Went by The future Bowesville Stn this afternoon and it seems the guideway will be elevated from Bowesville to Limebank .
  7. The notice was reposted. There’s no impact to service on the SB platform for ether phase of construction. Judging by the notice, There’s planed work for the enclosed portion of the platform later this summer and a temporary access ramp is being built for this phase.
  8. On my last trip to the Falls back in 2009 . I had a Ren set on both legs ( Ottawa <-> Toronto) The same equipment would interline to/from the early morning and evening Niagara run. Baggage/Bike service wasn't offered between Toronto & Niagara though.

  13. Its unit 2369 (City logos intact ) Photos taken from the sidewalk.
  14. Judgeing by this Map. Pinecrest Stops A & B are to remain active when the Transitway closes. Also it looks like the pedestrian bridge & associated building/s at Bayshore will be closed for construction.
  15. Here’s a CityTv news release (basicly same info) I also noticed that Flex Bus will have some sort of racks on some trips (possibly internally mounted in the luggage rack or front bumper mounted). per
  16. It is indeed a Niagara Falls Vii (some one I know showed me a pic of it back in February) As for it being retired I have no idea if it actually is.
  17. Could be a few reasons. One reason I can think of on the top of my head would be CBSA/CBP clearance to operate cross border service. The other would be the ongoing land border restrictions. (Which is slowly being lifted) Though it would be good to have a one ride from NYC to Toronto

  20. Found this in my FB feed Porter Airlines Last week, Embraer brought their demonstrator E195-E2 aircraft to Canada to complete tests that play a key role in our plan to expand our network later this year. They made stops in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and Iqaluit, Nunavut, for a “cold soak test” before making their way to Ottawa and Toronto for preliminary training with small groups of Porter team members. Stay tuned for more - we’ll take you behind the scenes as we count down to our first flight with the E195-E2!
