  1. To think what happened 20 years ago today, does anybody have any route assignments by division when Lansdowne Garage closed its doors on February 18, 1996 - the day of the cuts? It would be appreciated to also post the route assignments dated to the end of 1995.
  2. Passengers may have been possibly come in contact with an person who is infected by tuberculosis during an August 2015 trip between Montreal and Toronto, Quebec health officials warned. http://www.cp24.com/mobile/news/officials-warn-megabus-passengers-may-have-come-in-contact-with-tb-infected-passenger-1.2781980
  3. Denise Matthews aka Vanity, now dead at the age of 57.
  4. The sammdot.ca tracker shows the following units at Hillcrest that will be or were already rebuilt: #1006, #1043, #1071, #1074, #1079, #1093, #1127, #1136 (Correct me if I am wrong)
  5. I have many photos and some pages I would like to contribute. Please kindly add me to the Wiki Editors so I can participate.
  6. I have something that bothers me a little bit. Here are my theoretical questions about some routes with the farthest deadheads to and from their respective divisions. - Since Wilson runs the 56 LEASIDE, isn't that far to deadhead from Wilson garage to Donlands Stn.? It takes 30 minutes to travel to Donlands to start service everyday although most Wilson routes start at Eglinton Stn. - Same situation with the 10 VAN HORNE and 169 HUNTINGWOOD, it's also nowhere near Wilson territory. Isn't Malvern or New Eglinton a bit closer to run the route? - In the most bizarre twist, 75 SHERBOURNE and 82 ROSEDALE are nowhere close to Wilson garage but more like in the Birchmount territory (65, 94, 172) - 141 DOWNTOWN/MT. PLEASANT EXPRESS is a crazy one since it's the only Mount Dennis route east of Yonge an connects to the 6, I suspect its likely either Wilson or Birchmount. FlyerD901, leylandvictory2 and Xtrasteve, please take your time to share my opinions about these issues. And kindly please explain the relief points for those routes. Thanks.
  7. Taken back in October, a woman spat onto the the operator's face. http://www.cp24.com/mobile/news/police-seek-woman-who-spat-at-threatened-ttc-bus-driver-1.2780020
  8. See below. Perhaps Nasco or any other agency?
  9. Few questions: - How much does a bus/subway/streetcar operator, supervisor, collector, or mechanic get paid in general by month or salary? - I wonder since I am out of high school for a few years, would I consider applying for a station collector since its the easiest job to do? I want to go straight to collector instead of going from operator to collector. If not, I want to do a job as a special volunteer (red bibs) during subway closures. How much do they get paid?
