  1. TTC 8441 on 927. A nice throwback to when the bus was new.
  2. I did. I actually rode it in June, if that counts.
  3. Why do SRT drivers still verbally announce stops? I was at McCowan today and there was a notice on the whiteboard advising operators to do this.
  4. Is the situation of the 927 and 45/945 the shortest amount of time in TTC history between division changes? They were only at Mount Dennis and Arrow respectively for a few board periods before they were switched around.
  5. TTC 8797 on 9 Bellamy at Warden Stn around 4:15pm today.
  6. If we’re talking unplanned subway closures, then I can see why RAD buses might be used over pulling buses off of regular routes as was done previously.
  7. TTC 1070, 1097, 3154, 7970, and 8185 working the 504 replacement bus from Broadview station to Roncesvalles/Triller via Dufferin and Queen today. A mildly interesting thing I noticed was that Mount Dennis division buses were signed “504/505 Parliament&King” heading westbound, as they do during the normal long-term detour routing, but that buses from all other divisions were signed “504Q King to Roncesvalles/Triller via Dufferin&Queen”. Heading eastbound, Mount Dennis buses were signed “504/505 Broadview Stn” and Wilson buses were signed “504 King to Shaw”. This could definitely be a source of rider confusion. Does this have to do with the VISION system?
  8. How do TTC drivers sign up to serve on planned subway closures? I'm curious because there doesn't seem to be a planned schedule for them. Because of this, how are connections to the last daytime buses handled when subway service closes for the night and there is a closure?
  9. TTC 3643 was on the 85 around 4pm today. Edit: Please disregard - I didn't know this unit had been transferred to Malvern as seen below!
  10. Forgive me for asking such a rudimentary question, but I'm trying to avoid the Lawrence-St. Clair closure tomorrow and am not sure which option would be the most reliable to get from Yonge/Eglinton to Parkdale. Should I take the 32 to Caledonia and then transfer to the 47 all the way down; take the 32 over to the Spadina Line, subway down to Osgoode and take the 501 replacement bus, or should I take the shuttle bus to St. Clair, then the Yonge subway to Queen, and then the 501 replacement bus? I'm leaning towards the third option, but am wondering about the reliability of the others.
  11. It also needs to run articulated buses at all times. I tried to ride it from Bloor to Queen the other day, and all the 40-footers on it were invariably crowded to an unsafe degree.
