  1. 4204 Powered up at the HCRR after being delivered.
  2. Smyth/Roger Guindon has been completely converted to new LED signals
  3. Here is a photo from last weekend of the old incandescent that still lives (for now) at Bronson/417. If I remember correctly, all of the other signals have been replaced with new LEDs. (Don’t worry, I wasn’t driving)
  4. That’s correct, route 140 shouldn’t be signed ‘Heron Park’. If anything it should say ‘Herongate’, or if you want to reference the area north of Heron that it serves, maybe they could use ‘Guildwood Estates’ or ‘Featherstone’, or more generally just ‘Alta Vista’. I also noticed the “Billing’s Bridge”, which is incorrect since there shouldn’t be an apostrophe.
  5. 8120-55 Bayshore (run 55-06) at the Pretoria Bridge, 5:55 pm 8046-44 Hurdman at Alta Vista/Smyth, 6:00 pm
  6. Have there been any updates on the units that were on order for 2019?
  7. Bus stop flags have begun being switched over in Alta Vista, along new routes 46, 140, 141, 55, and for the 44 Hurdman. I find it funny how a bus stop flag, for example, now has routes 46, 140, 141 on it, but really, despite there being three routes, the service level is the same as before, provided by just one route (112).
  8. While the fact that the writer claims the 12 days of testing has been reset several times may be true, his post just seems a bit too sketchy for me to find it trustworthy. What they say is all very vague, and when they say that the city has agreed to change the contract, frankly, I don’t believe that statement whatsoever. The city wants a working system just as much as anyone else, since it means that there will be lower maintenance costs later on, after the handover. The poor grammar of theirs certainly doesn’t help their credibility either.
  9. Pleasant Park/Alta Vista and the pedestrian crossing between Dale and Caledon on Alta Vista have both been completely retrofitted with LEDs. Here's a question for everyone: are there any incandescent beacons (the flashing single yellow or red lights sometimes seen at intersections) around anymore?
  10. There is one at Lees/417 WB off-ramp. Link Despite what Google streetview shows, it is only the one I zoomed in on that remains, the rest would’ve most likely been replaced when they removed the old Transitway off-ramp lights recently.
  11. Some more of the old black and white fence found at the end of Centennial Boulevard along the Rideau River. Link At the corner of Thornton Ave and Monk St. in the Glebe, there are stone street signs embedded into the building on the northeast corner of the intersection. I wonder if these are actually quite old. Link Along Woodbridge Crescent adjacent to the Bayshore parking garage, there are overhead english-only signs for the two-way left turn lane. Link
  12. At the end of Oxbow Ave and Elmside Ave, facing Lynda Lane Park, there are old wooden fences separating the road and the park. This photo was taken on Oxbow. Its hard to tell, but the fence was originally painted with black and white stripes. It’s in poor shape, since the snow from the road gets pushed up against it every winter. Along the LRT alignment, just east of the Riverside overpass, there is a 50 limit ahead sign that still remains. It would’ve been for the old Train station.
