  1. Thompson transit finally has a word about the new cutaway style buses they are purchasing https://www.thompsoncitizen.net/news/thompson/city-buying-two-smaller-transit-buses-that-should-be-ready-for-service-by-spring-2021-1.24188921
  2. 422 entered service on the 48 today
  3. I seen it already, it says practice social distancing non medical masks recommended
  4. 354 is on the 101 tonight 615 is on the 102 tonight
  5. Looks like Saskatoon will be testing out electric buses https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwi8-Jjl2OPqAhWG9Z4KHSEdDsgQ0PADegQICRAH&url=https%3A%2F%2Fsaskatoon.ctvnews.ca%2Fcan-an-electric-bus-survive-a-prairie-winter-saskatoon-transit-aims-to-find-out-1.5034545&usg=AOvVaw0qH2FAwAfpah7uvUe8fL9r
  6. I thought about It but Beaumont station already has enough routes, only if there was a way to go east onto jubilee after the transitway then it can end at Fort rouge station
  7. Not that I know of, it’s actually not that weird I’ve seen things like LACMTA Xn40 and other new flyer demos out on the road
  8. Spotted ETS 7181 out for testing in winnipeg today
  9. Transit could’ve started preparing a plan for going back to regular service as soon as the province released its plan for reopening and yet they cut service back on the same day phase one of the reopening approaches came into effect, perhaps to start things such as monitoring ridership more closely and take any complaints seriously, as well as a phased approach as I’ve mentioned like problematic routes get their service back while some routes remain in the reduced service. I also question what transit is going to do with all the laid off drivers they’ve recalled back, if it’s not for providing more service and they will only sit at the lounge waiting for their work you might as well keep them laid off rather then recalling them back with no clear intention, they also need to pay whoever they’ve laid off which is also draining their budget
  10. Also what I think transit means by “increase the number of buses as needed” is to send out fills on discretion of the driver, if a driver didn’t bother to call in a full bus then there might not be a increased number of buses
  11. I’m saying for right now like does everyone think it’s a good time to bring back regular service
  12. Today I saw 380 on the blue full almost to the front door and the driver didn’t even pass up or call for a standby bus From what I’ve been reading ATU is trying to get transit to bring back regular service but a person who works for the city’s emergency department said that ridership is still at the point it was when ridership fell from normal, I do want to know how they determined that as from what I’ve been seeing is not true at all Transit could’ve done a phased approach to bring service back to normal like certain routes that tend to get packed go back to regular schedule and the routes that doesn’t need full service back stays the way it is, also transit could’ve done a better job at finding ridership like actually surveying riders and get their opinion
  13. Looks like there’s now run cards for fill buses, spotted 16-51 on the 18 today as well as 50-9/11-51 on the 11
