  1. OC Bus Spottings

    5085, route 97 Bayshore, at Bayview station 18:05.
  2. OC Bus Spottings

    Some 81xx on route 97 Tunney's Pasture spotted at Bayview around 10:00. I want to say 8119, but did not see the fleet number clearly enough to say for certain.
  3. The Trillium Line

    I'm not entirely sure of the logistics, but to me it'd make a lot more sense to have it set up like the regular customer service centres are set up, with the employees doing the pass loading.
  4. STO and OC Transpo Routes

    15 minutes does not feel even remotely close to a decade.
  5. Random OC Transpo and STO Questions

    According to the Wiki, yes. That was the second of two, numbered internally as 1788. TTC's 6330 was here in '88, numbered 1786 internally.
  6. Random OC Transpo and STO Questions

    Both of the ones they did keep were sent to the scrap yard some time in 2007.
  7. There is exactly one of them along Moodie at the entrance to Zellers/Loblaws; the rest are still incandescents. I think the temporary setup at the Moodie/417 WB ramp also has those separate signals.
  8. Invero Light Rebuild Project

    I have noticed that some of them do have a different style keypad (two-digit green display instead of the red single digit one). Perhaps the transmissions have been upgraded to six speeds in those units. I also don't think that it's just refurbished buses that have those, and certainly not all refurbished buses.

  10. OC Bus Spottings

    5116, 104 Place d'Orleans,at Carleton 17:01.
  11. And what other choice do they have, given the replacements are coming in at a snail's pace? Replace them all with buses? I'm sure everyone would just love that. Sure, the TTC has problems, that's fine and understandable. This is just one of the poorest examples as the problem is caused by something entirely out of their control.

  13. Double decker bus order

    8113 was already modified, I believe. Crappy photo of 8147 on route 262 this afternoon at Bayview:
  14. Ex OC Transpo GM Classic spotted in Mississauga

    That was already answered just a few posts above:
  15. Double decker bus order

    I don't really see why that's a big deal, but I'd make a bet that when its getting close to happening there will be a big announcement.
