  1. https://blackburnnews.com/chatham/chatham-news/2021/01/16/permanent-improvements-may-coming-ck-transit/ 5th route will be permanent going from 60 minute to 45 minutes New buses won’t be here till July new bus shlters Adjusting the on demand service at night I say they should have gone back to six routes covering Chatham then you would have absolutely no issues with over crowding
  2. Shocked Chatham hasn’t bought this one too. The 2 they got from St.Thomas and the other one they bought used have been out on service more than anything else.
  3. Is it normal to have a WEGO bus on niagara Falls Transit routes. Ive been keep tabs over the last week(making Niagara falls in cities skylines and wanted to see which buses were on what routes) and im seeing 5301 and 5305 on rotes 106 and 107. Is this just to give these buses so road time or is there a shortage of NRT buses that they need to use WEGO buses.
  4. Anyone local in Niagara Falls can get a picture of the new transit hub on Canada Drive? I won’t be there for a few months TY

    Transit Windsor

  6. Ive been going through wiki between badder bus roster and the rosters of the last 2 companies they have purchased(Wills Bus Lines and Cherry Bus Lines) So from just googling Badder Bus ive found many buses not found on Badders wiki. Note- i am assuming the bus year based on badder bus roster numbering 1397- 1997 MCI 102-EL3 1499- 1999 MCI 102-EL3 1401- 2001 Prevost H3-45 1304-2004 MCI J4500 1305-2005 MCI J4500 1306-2006 MCI J4500 1506-2006 MCI J4500 1107- 2007 MCI J4500 1118-2018 MCI J4500 2500- 2000 MCI 102-EL3
  7. Sorry guys well aware of all this just stating what each one is doing. Considering they are kinda the same survive run by two different companies would have the same procedures since they are dealing with outside visitors. Drivers said they are running limited buses and some drivers have been assigned to other jobs or are off.
  8. Not sure where to put this but was on the wego today they are limiting to 50 passengers max per bus. Nothing sectioned off but on the green line they have someone on the bus spraying each passenger hands with disinfectant and masks a must . Went on the blue line too but didn’t encounter this
  9. Chatham got this grant too and are getting Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 if you go by the cptdb wiki along with more cutaways
  10. 150 was the first to show up when they started the 5th route(was exclusively on it due to the seating I guess) 147 I’ve seen once or twice but 110 is new to me but then again I haven’t been out much due to medical issues. but on a good. It looks like a lot of systems including Chatham leamington, la Salle and St.Thomas will be getting upgrades to their systems and/or zero emission vehicles. The news article says stt is getting 14 vehicles and Chatham is getting 10 with upgrades to its real time and fare system. Also major upgrade to Chathams terminal and new 6 solar powered bus she
  11. I think I still have them but I was taking pictures of buses when I was a kid with my new disposable camera as they were coming down the road. Went to develop them and every picture was a blurry bus or I get just the rear r no bus at all.
  12. Front door boarding to return by September 1, 2020 The Commission has extended rear door boarding on conventional transit until the appropriate number of buses in the fleet are equipped with an Operator barrier. This is expected to occur no later than September 1, 2020. Watch for updates in the coming weeks or visit us at londontransit.ca.
  13. Again according to cptdb wiki (a great spot to look up all this) it’s says yes refurbished and repainted to the two tone green livery.
  14. Yeah wiki shows both 3000-3001 are retired. 3000 retired late 2018, early 2019 3001 retired early 2019
  15. A federal and provincial grant worth $3.6 million has been awarded to Chatham-Kent to address public transit projects. Municipal officials said applications for the grant were submitted in May of 2019, through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). Some of the projects listed under the ICIP include terminal upgrades, more bus shelters, and new public transit vehicles with enhanced information and technology. “Achieving this important milestone allows the Municipality of Chatham-Kent to proceed with projects designed to better serve our transit users and to improv
  16. CK Transit has reduced its hours and suspended night time buses. As well as continuing to limit to only 6 people on the bus at one time. Routes 1-4 will run from 8-5 Monday to Saturday. 30 min service Route 5 8:30-5:30 60 min service interurban 6:45 run has been suspended para transit service will run mon-sat 8-5 ,Sunday service has been suspended. On a bus related note seen C-147 out the other day so another new bus
  17. New on-demand service starts tomorrow night. Also seen another new bus(C-147) https://blackburnnews.com/chatham/chatham-news/2020/03/14/ck-transit-request-ready-go/ Finally got out and got a pick of C-150 on route 5
  18. Havent been on much do to health issues but here is a big update for CK Transit. An on-demand pilot program for Chatham, running from January, 2020 until June 30th, 2021 with a request for the purchase of two new buses. https://ckxsfm.com/on-demand-evening-service-proposed-for-ck-transit/ Was approved by council the other night On a smaller note all inner city buses all have a C infront of the numbers now. so now150 is now C150.
  19. New city route started on tuesday. #5 covers parts of route 1,3, and 4. Its offset from the rest as its a longer run. Bus is the same type (has 4000 kms) and different seat configuration( Primiter seats on the left and regular dual seats on the right and 1 permenant spot for a wheelchair upfront on the right. #150 wish i had more info this was relayed from my gf as due to medical issues i havent been getting out much(sorry no pic of the bus yet) Route 5 Route 5 follows: Terminal> Wellington St> Fifth St> Thames St> Victoria Ave > Grand Av W> Lacroix
  20. Sounds like also adding a extra inter-urban run as well to fill the gap between 11:45-4:15. Suppose to start in September. Also city has been having public showing of possible revamped of the system. One shows city owned 30ft buses(was told likely Grande West as I guess there was a demo here last month that they really liked) with later hours, 5 routes and betier coverage. Another option is a dial-a-ride option. Having multiple vehicles and just call a stop number when you need a ride.
  21. Sounds like CK Transit is finally going to put a 5th run out to cover the newly opened casino on Richmond st and help easy the over loading on route 1 and adding mid day service for the urban routs. Also will be looking at other issues like Sunday service and running later than 7:15(talking to a member of the CK transit task force) https://www.chathamdailynews.ca/news/local-news/new-bus-route-proposed
  22. Explains why I've seen a cherrey bus or two down here around chatham. One cherrey bus was hauling the st.marys jr b hockey team last night when they came to chatham. Normally it's been all badder buses
  23. Was displayed at the International plowing match this past week in Chatham-Kent
