  1. Peeves in everyday life...

    I would use coins, but bills are all I have sometimes. I tried the trick where you rub the bill back and forth on the side of the vendin machine to get rid of the wrinkles, but it didn't do anything.

    4359 was on the 80 today.

    I meant a five dollar bill. Sorry for the confusion. I just call all of them dollar bills anyway for some reason.

    We've already tried going to @1604, but no luck on fixing the issue as of yet. If you like, you can go to 1604 and tell him/her that you'd like his photo copies reduced to one.

    When a vending machine won't accept your dollar bill.
  7. Four classics have been retired recently. These Classics include 9106, 9404, 9410, and 9413. Their driver equipment and fareboxes were gone.
  8. Anyone create their own transit system?

    Update: Spring service has just started. Route 20 will be renumbered to 120, but the route itself will stay the same. All other routes and route numbers stay the same at this time.

  10. Thumbnails duplicating/triplicating in threads

    We've brought it up to the admins a few times, and they can't do anything. They did submit a report to get it fixed. You're just going to have to deal with it in the meantime.

    Forgot to post this sighting: 5085 was doing the 86B Baseline route today at 15:20.
  12. STM 21-2XX Retirement Watch

    Does anybody know how many of these are left at the moment? I know that 21-226, 21-268, and 21-216 may still be active, but any others?

    Double decker on the 14? Is there a scheduled DD run on the 14 Carlington? Or was this an extra bus that got put out because they didn't have any left?
  14. GOA transit news, info etc

    Why would they eliminate rear door boarding? It helps with crowds. I think it'd make more sense just to keep it the way it is, as if only front boarding was allowed, it would take longer and potentially make buses late as a result of all this. Personally, I never boarded from the back anyways, so it doesn't affect me, but still.

  16. OC Bus Spottings

    I was driving at the time; couldn't report it. I was wondering what a bus could possibly be doing there. Besides, I barely have enough information to report it. All I have is the bus number, approximate location, and approximate time. I don't know if the bus was actually waiting to go in service or not, and I have no run number.

    4253 was driving down Highway 417 today. Also saw 6692 with its doors open at a stop that said no layups (with no route number that I could see).
  18. Today's Sightings

    Some 30-xxx LFS was doing the 17 today. I wrote it down, but misplaced it.

  20. What do you enjoy most about the hobby?

    I too can relate. I used to think that there was nothing worthwhile anymore, but with our upcoming OC Transpo hybrid retirements later this year, I'm going to actually miss the hybrids. Our last good bus was the Orion VI which we got rid of in 2013. We still have one in preservation. I don't know what the hell I was taking back in 2010, but I used to think that the Classics painted in the old livery were actually different buses than the ones painted in the newer maple leaf livery. 10 years ago, I barely knew anything about OC. Now, in 2018, my knowledge grew so much. Our last REALLY good buses were the NovaBus Classics which retired back in 2010. I really miss them.
  21. What do you enjoy most about the hobby?

    Riding transit buses are what I enjoy most. I also like to spot older buses. I remember that when I was 6, I was obsessed with OC Transpo to the point where I'd spend all day looking at buses. I remember liking all of their buses; but nowadays, I only like their older high floor buses. I still like their newer buses though.
  22. What are you eating right now?

    Sweet Chili Heat Doritos. 😋
