  1. ALP-45DP are heavier when compared to F59PH, maybe the tracks are not solid enough? It reminds me of the derailment at Gare Centrale a few weeks after their introduction. -- On another note, exo has released three illustrations of their new CRRC bilevel cars. No delivery date so far. https://www.lapresse.ca/actualites/grand-montreal/202006/03/01-5276283-des-trains-a-moitie-pleins-pour-la-rentree-prevoit-exo.php.
  2. Thanks for your comment, however, I don't plan to add such features in the future. However, you should be able to see the headsign for must vehicles and the direction for all, except STM (they don't provide it). The goal of Transit Tracker is to provide an overview of the public transport network and to find out which buses are on which lines. The main "selling point" of my app is the ability to see fleet numbers. You can also see buses on special lines, like school and industrial extras. The app was never intended or made to be used as a schedule app. I don't have the resources or budget to add this functionality and there is plenty of app that do it way better that I could ever do it, like Chrono and Transit.
  3. Transit Tracker version 2.1.0 is now available. For this version, I have worked on the user interface like the home page and settings page. There are no new features, but I hope it will make the experience better for new and existing users. I also made improvement regarding the reliability of the application, which was not really good in the past week, everything should be fixed now. If the app is empty after the update, please clear your browser cache: https://support.qlik.com/articles/000041435 I have also created a Twitter account where I will tweet some stats, updates and news about the application: https://twitter.com/ttrackerca For users of the first version (on Github), you will see a dialog inviting you to use version 2 in the upcoming days. The version 1 will continue to work, but I will not make any further updates.
  4. It was with some emotion and a lot of nostalgia that I took some pictures of the very last train to pass under the tunnel yesterday. It's unfortunate that I couldn't be onboard given the circumstances, but I have many good memories of this train. The Deux-Montagnes line is the reason why I am so interested in public transport today. When I was a kid, we used to take the train to the book fair every year, and I often spent the trip in the front cabin with the engineer. The train is now part of my daily life, since two years, and this electrified line always fascinates me. Goodbye Deux-Montagnes line ♥️
  5. If VIA Rail's high frequency train plan goes ahead and shares tracks with the Vaudreuil-Hudson line, maybe the ALP-45DP will be used in electric mode? Otherwise maybe exo will exchange some locomotives with GO for their partial electrification in the future. On another subject, Ben Lomon shared a photo that shows some MR-90 cars without pantographs. Is it the beginning of the end, or the beginning of the conversion to simple non-powered cars?
  6. Unfortunately, Transit Tracker v2 will not be accessible for the next days. My server had a problem yesterday and has not been able to start since. You can still access version 1, which is on a different server : https://felixinx.github.io/mtl-gtfs-rt/ Sorry about this interruption and I will let you know has soon as it's back online. EDIT: The app is now working on a new server.
  7. Due to new instructions of the government, all REM construction sites will be closed. The Mount-Royal tunnel will stay open for now. It wasn't announced before, but the 919, 964 and 968 will not run this week. I doubt they will run next week.
  8. The 700s have received "allo exo" decals while the MR-90s got nothing. For me, it's clear that the MR-90s will stay on the Deux-Montagnes until June 2021, but we could be surprised! Also, if you use the old Comets, you will need locomotives. As @Frozen Yogurt said, there is only one link left, wich will probably be removed in a couple of months. So what will be running the shuttle will either be scrapped, transported by truck or if Junction de l'est is still open in 2021, by rail. Concerning the Chinese Bilevels, can they run on the St-Laurent bridge to Candiac? Two levels cars didn't work out in the past, I don't see why it would now.
  9. 38-013 was on the 20 going East near Ste-Julie at 10:30, En Transit. Any idea where it's going?
  10. REM shuttles should have been given to a sub-contractor. However, the 919 and 968 are still scheduled on Galland coaches, and the 964 needs at is peak 16 buses. But there is also 60 new buses. Why do they have to remove so much departures? What is the current situation of bus shortage?
  11. Planibus for March are now out : http://stm.info/en/info/networks/bus/planibus-schedules Routes serving Cote-Vertu station have a notice regarding the summer closure : rerouted or transfer on shuttle buses.
  12. After months of development, I am proud to present version 2.0.0 of Transit Tracker today! Since the beginning of July, 6,386 vehicles have been added, including 150 trams and 78 trains. As of today, you can download the data presented in the application, view vehicles in the greater Toronto area and activate the dark theme if you are a fan! And for STM vehicles, you can now see related trips using @Gerbil application. Thank you to all beta testers!
  13. Yes I'm working on a dark mode, but probably not in the next release! Edit: I had extra time this week (finally!) and dark mode will be in the next update!
  14. @Blue Hybrid Bus I need more info, I will send you a PM. @Frozen Yogurt headsign should now be fixed. The download interface is almost finished. For now, you can use the following link : STM My March break is next week and I will try to finish up version 2.0!
  15. This is bad... All VIA trains are cancelled until further notice, on most routes. https://www.cn.ca/en/news/2020/02/cn-initiating-progressive-and-orderly-shutdown-of-its-eastern-ca/ How can't they run any trains?
  16. It is temporary, but it has been like this for at least a year, if not two. Trains have to slow down because of work going on at and around Berri-UQAM. If I remember correctly, there is the same kind of slow order at Vendome.
  17. Beta 5 is now online. If your browser has a cached version of the app, you might experiment some UI bugs. This will be sorted for the final version, before February. @Blue Hybrid Bus The problem should now be fixed!
  18. I've learned a lot since version 1 and I am really happy on the UI of version 2. I'm glad you like it! Regarding the difference in vehicules count, it happens sometimes but I don't know why. It's the main reason why it's still in beta...
  19. exo in Montreal doesn't share the ridership by station. His predecessor, the AMT, use to do it back in 2009. The STM, with the Metro, only gives the first and last 5 stations. Metrolinx has a annual map of ridership across GO stations, wich I love. There is also some explanation on why there are some change.
  20. Unlikely since the oldest articulated are from 2009, wich will be replaced around 2025, wich is after the first articulated electric buses. And for now I don't think there is any plan to expand the articulated bus network, especially with 300 buses on the way this year.
  21. Thank you for your feedback! Trip information (including headsign) have been added to version 2.0, wich is now in beta at transittracker.ca.
  22. You are correct, the spur isn't electrified anymore, the power mode switch is at Canora / Mont-Royal. Also down the line : We can see foundations at Bois-Franc station (west of the existing platforms) and excavation of the underground passage There is a new bridge at Bois-de-Liesse nature park The new bridges crossing Rivière-des-Prairies are in construction (my picture is the one between Montreal and Ile-Bigras) The maintenance center at Sainte-Eustache is now complete and will be used by exo soon before the REM Also attached is the new structure at A40 layover facility.
  23. There will be a new GTFS set, but if I understood correctly, it might be after January 6. From STM developers.
  24. They are hundreds of students going from Montpellier to Canora/Mont-Royal each day. These stop flags are for Pierre-Laporte students. I have made some research and here are all the details : https://pierrelaporte.csmb.qc.ca/modification-du-transport-en-commun-2020/ Adding units might help, but maintenance capacity will still be limited for some months? I guess we will have to wait and see!
