    To be honest, that’s precisely what I was starting to think.

    Question: Why are the LRVs numbered 11XX, I feel like I recall this being talked about previously but I cannot find the discussion. Even if someone were to redirect me to that, that would be great.

    That’s why you look both ways before crossing the street...

    Ah, I see. I also just noticed they changed the STO routing on the map to show certain trips going via the Macdonald-Cartier bridge.

    OC Transpo had buses at some 20 Loblaws locations around the city today for their annual stuff the bus food drive. I believe they all may have been Hybrids.

    OC Transpo has posted the new system map eff. December 23rd. http://www.octranspo.com/images/files/maps/system_map/systemmap_Dec23.pdf
  10. Sorry, I should have been more clear. I was more referring to routes that travelled down Alta Vista Drive from downtown to about the Herongate area, not that travelled to Alta Vista. I shouldn’t have used the word “Renunbered” and should have just said that the route changed, because a lot of the times if the number changed, the routing changed. At the time of this photo, wouldn’t it have said Elmvale if it didn’t go down the Alta Vista Dr. branch? I seem to recall some buses saying Elmvale back then, but I can’t recall which ones exactly.
  11. If anyone is curious, route 61 was later renunbered to 62, then 60 then 62 then the 8 then the present day 44. It roughly followed the same routing as today, but instead ended at Herongate mall. If you go really far back it was route 23 when it was first created.
  12. I thought that stop ‘A’ was going to be off only? Or is that another stop?
  13. Today at Hurdman they were installing new bus shelters much closer to the intersection of the Transitway then they are currently.

    I really don’t know anymore what buses are assigned to the 49 at any time, as I seem to be seeing a lot more 60 footers at all time periods on it, especially on weekdays. It was only a couple years ago that 60 footers were extremely rare to see on it, but for some reason they might be getting a lot more frequently. The 48 seems to still be basically only Hybrids, except during rush hour. Does anybody know what trips get assigned to do route 49, say for example on their way to Hurdman, Elmvale or other places to start their route, sort of like to do it on their way?
