  2. It sounds like you haven't signed up. That's weird. Can you message me (email or forum) your username? I'll look into it.
  3. Hi all, Some of the regular tracker users may have noticed that I recently changed the name of the site (and this thread!) to PocketTrack. It's been a long time coming; I only really called it 'SammDOT Tracker' because everyone else, CPTDB and elsewhere, has been calling it that (because, you know, sammdot.ca). I didn't really like that name all that much, mostly because I don't like naming things after myself, and just that it seems like a less creative name. Why PocketTrack? I originally thought of the name as a reference to pocket tracks on the subway system. I know, the tracker doesn't even do subway yet, but I'm (slowly) working on that. For now, pretend I named it that way because it's a tracker that fits in your pocket. I will be writing a series of articles on various parts of PocketTrack that I'm working on, or have at least thought of doing but haven't gotten around to coding yet. Since I went to the closure yesterday, today's article is on shuttle buses: https://blog.sammdot.ca/pockettrack-tracking-shuttle-buses-is-hard-9becf687e77
  4. Are you, by any chance, the one who sent me two emails asking for an account? Don't worry, I did read all the emails and will get around to it tonight. But please keep in mind that this is only a side project for me, and that I might not be able to respond to everything immediately, or even within the same day, since I may have other more important things (such as school) taking up my time.
  5. It's a streetcar route. Don't forget the short turns.
  6. I agree; BD is much heavier. The Yonge line closures in November could really use some though.
  7. As far as I know, no; I meant that the bot started looking for that instead of 4421.
  8. I'd consider the artic shuttles special, since we haven't had a significant number of them at all before this closure. The last closure we had any artics at all, we had only two. I recorded the following artic buses during this morning's closure shift (7:30am-5pm). 19 buses were spotted before 2pm, which is around the time they send out new batches of buses: 9065 9070 9074 9077 9079 9085 9089 9094 9101 9102 9104 9111 9118 9123 9126 9128 9129 9141 9144 17 new buses were spotted after 2pm, in addition to some of the buses from above (but I didn't keep track): 9056 9057 9104 9106 9108 9110 9116 9117 9131 9136 9138 9142 9143 9148 9150 9151 9152 So roughly half the buses this closure were artics, which made the flow of passengers a lot better than I expected it to be. This is a significant improvement from previous closures.
  9. 4421 spotted in service on the 510. Today is presumably the first day, but after the bot reported it on the 306 two days ago it started tracking 4422 so I had to enter it manually. I guess now I have to assume that the new streetcar will be on either 509 or 510.
  10. So there is no real way to automatically find out when the first service run is. Welp.
  11. 4421 is logged onto 306 for some reason. LOL
