    OC and STO service disruptions

    I heard in the news that the city is even advising everyone to avoid using their cars those days, at least downtown. Traffic is going to be a mess.

    Judging by photos that Via Rail/Siemens have released with the design of the new trains, no, it will probably just be a cab car. Taken from here: https://m.viarail.ca/en/about-via-rail/fleet-renewal

    I would hardly say the 106 is experiencing a cut, as it will only end at Elmvale but will go all the way to Bayshore in the west replacing the 101, which is a pretty major crosstown route.
  4. Nope, it is during doors open Ottawa. I don’t think there are tents set up and fences set up with crowds of people walking around in groups during a normal work day.
  5. The satellite images would have been taken June 2nd, 2018 as it is clearly doors open Ottawa. I can tell by looking at the full parking lots at either Walkley Yard or the Belfast Road location.

    GO is now available for all transit agencies on the Transit app.

    Must have been a different transfer in my pocket then, since my presto card was out of money I had to pay with cash. Whoops! Edit: after the looking at the transfer again, it was 4226 instead of 4426.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    A whole bunch of new school routes began in September and last December. 645 and 609 are some off the top of my head. http://www.octranspo.com/routes/high_schools_and_middle_schools

    4426 has a 2 toned stop request. Rode it yesterday on the 7 Carleton. Edit: it was 4226 not 4426.

    I think everyone knows what they meant. I do not understand why you always come here from the GTA thread just to comment something negative. Unnecessary.
  11. Does anybody know what kind of ridership the rural shopper routes get? I’m sure it varies route to route, but I’m just curious how many people rely or benefit from this service.

    Saw 4482 at Hurdman today around 13:30 signed “ X Special “. If I had to guess it was something to do with staff as it was picking employees up at the lounge and sitting there for a little while. Also today it seemed like there were a lot more 40 footers out on Transitway routes than normal. Maybe it was just my timing or coincidence, but I saw hardly any artics today and I was at Hurdman, Lees, Bayview, all over the city.

    I absolutely agree with bringing back some of the cancelled local routes of 2011. Tying them into the new LRT, especially with Stage 2, could be a great asset for OC Transpo, having very local, local routes. It could also attract more people back to OC Transpo, having a bus only a block away or increased frequency on current local routes. They could be great “last mile” connections from the LRT stations.

    Do you know what the benefit for having an off-site contractor complete these tasks is?

    This might be a stupid question, but what does PDI stand for? I have a guess but just not sure as it could mean a couple different things.
