  1. It *feels* like the TTC is obsessed with screwing around with streetcar operations to make things slower and slower each and every single year, almost like they go sniffing around for something to mess with. That and the fact that they have some phobia of doors shutting on people; so much so they make the timing on doors closing on subways, buses, and streetcars slower with each new generation of vehicle acquired.
  2. ^And the TTC could make the case that there are numerous warnings that give said driver advanced warning not to enter the tunnel, and thus due to the driver's own negligence they ended up in the situation that they got themselves into.
  3. The solution is easy, install retractable bollards. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out a solution.
  4. Good i'm glad I sound pretty childish, and now that that's settled end of discussion. There's no need for me to waste my time with a "valid counter-argument". Dont like my comments? Dont reply to them. Time to get back on topic, there's no need for any extra comments from anyone.
  5. Hey i'm just sticking up for myself, personally I dont get butt hurt at all over any of the comments made. When you have individuals who claim they're "done talking with you", than come back and seek your comments out because they cant get enough then try to boil things up by saying " Calm your tits", than i'm sorry I ain't standing by childish nonsense like that. A comment is a comment, people have their own opinions take it or leave it. I'm not going to go around telling people to "calm their tits" and start making sarcastic remarks just because my opinion or point of view differs. I've been on this board long enough to avoid half of the childish talk that can go on here regarding foamers, etc.. When it comes to people coming at me, no way in hell i'm taking it.
  6. Coming from someone with the name @Streety McCarface that means so much, thanks! Good for you, congrats for your 13 years of experience. I'll be sure to mail you the loonie and a certificate of accomplishment. Maybe i'll toss in a participation ribbon just like high schoolers get, so you can add it to your oh so extensive trophy collection.
  7. Let's see how good your reading and comprehension skills are. Take a read, look at some photos and come back when you're done: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2018/05/02/ttc-keeps-reports-about-scarborough-rt-safety-secret-from-the-public.html https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/04/18/scarborough-rt-vehicles-need-repairs-to-avoid-catastrophic-corrosion-failures.html https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2019/05/04/scarborough-rt-fleet-reached-critical-vehicle-shortage-last-month.html?li_source=LI&li_medium=star_web_ymbii --->read the part where it explicitly states "holes in car bodies that “could compromise the integrity of the vehicle structure" and "Duct-tape has been used as a sealant, electrical wiring is exposed" So much for "having enough of me" eh? You just cant seem to help yourself in replying to my posts😉 Oh, here's a photo of the door frame of an SRT vehicle (in case your reading skills arent to snuff). If you need a photo with explicit duct tape on an SRT vehicle let me know and i'll personally mail you one:
  8. A few 37 year old, crumbling rust buckets being held together by duct tape so passengers arent at risk falling through potential holes that could form on said vehicle
  9. Perfect! Free advertisement for the TTC while in route to New York so people there can look up how much of a joke the Scarborough RT saga has been😉
  10. The TTC easily couldve gone with an 85% - 90% low floor design, but as was mentioned above they specified for the cars to be 100% low-floor. At the time I didnt get it because ramps were going to be used regardless of the height decision, but the clowns on at the commission at the time thought that it was going to make a huge difference. Had we gone with even a 90% low floor design, it would have allowed for some changes to the seating arrangements that we're stuck with today. But I digress we're beating a dead horse issue at this point.
  11. I know step back crews are happening at Spadina station, but is the same happening over at Broadview? If so it's probably time for double step-backs.
  12. Yet another example of the TTC's piss pour communication and planning skills. Management is a joke.
  13. Because Ford is a clown and doesnt have common sense? Do you think that thought even came to his mind? He couldn't care less about Hamilton's votes, clearly evidence by cancelling the LRT for not one solid reason. In fact, the reason he probably cancelled it is because Hamilton didnt vote for him, that's how petty the clown is.
  14. Very true, but money is still money at the end of the day. You can likely reduce the amount you have to allocate to emergency funds from the capital budget if you do proper preventative maintenance.
  15. Exactly what I thought, that's good on the city that's what they get for deferring maintenance time and time again. It's like they will never learn their lesson (ie: Fix the damn problem before it gets bigger and worse). Oh and now there is a burst watermain along that stretch of track so the city deserves and even bigger round of applause for dragging their feet because now the TTC will have to replace the rail now, then cut it up again in a few months and replace it yet again. But its ok why do preventative maintenance right? Let's just wait until everything is on its last legs and crumbles so we can replace it when its being held together by duct tape. And spend a 25% foot dragging premium on top of the initial costs of repair while we're at it.
