    One guess would be that they're considered trucks rather than buses, which isn't too far off. Another would be just because.
  3. Care to prove the allegation that they're removing them intentionally? I'm genuinely curious.

  6. I am reasonably sure the GSP intercom/information system on board the LINTs has GPS, but that it isn't exposed publicly and may not even be compatible with the system used for buses or used at all. I can't find it now, but something made mention of a train's exact location being transmitted to relevant authorities in the event of an emergency.

    TTC in the news

    This is an incredibly stupid argument that is going to go nowhere, especially if we're going to start blaming one's political values for their posts (which is rather juvenile, I might add, and assumes you even know them in the first place, which you don't). Let's start simple. He hates streetcars. Streetcars are a form of transit. Therefore, he hates a form of transit. Okay, but does he hate all transit? No, of course not, that'd be very silly for anyone let alone someone in power. Yes, absolutely, the title of the article is sensationalized. Sensationalized titles are used by news agencies get people to read their articles. It's been going on for years, there's nothing new here. Had you bothered to read the article itself, you'd find it makes exactly one mention of "transit hating" Doug Ford near the top, and that's it.The rest of it points out his subway priorities and streetcar denouncing. All of which he is on public record as saying. Frankly, just watch him. Actions speak much louder than words do. Now for some actual (at least mostly) news: Half of new discount TTC passes for low-income residents are going unused
