    Ottawa Double Decker Sightseeing Buses

    Here is a really bad photo that I took at 8:30 this morning of the converted megabus owner by Gray Line/Lady dive tours. (Dont worry, I wasn’t driving) Also notice the plastic covering the removed windows on the top deck. -Charlie

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I have found sometimes that (maybe it’s just the time that I pass the stations/tracks) it is almost easier to see a train on the weekend, at least everywhere east of uOttawa. -Charlie

    The signalling and CBTC is the same system, that’s how the signalling works.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    The thing is, the folks over at the Transportation Board of the city have literally said themselves that the signalling system is the riskiest part at the moment that needs to go nearly 100% smoothly for the November deadline to hold. -Charlie

    Ottawa Double Decker Sightseeing Buses

    I was watching this old tourism promotional video on YouTube yesterday and saw this double decker sightseeing bus in the background and took a screenshot. I cannot tell if it is the Bristol Lodekka or not, but am I correct in assuming it is? -Charlie

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Notice that the other week they started showing the destination screens like that one with the next train and minutes instead of “Welcome to the confederation line” or whatever (at Tremblay).

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    Then the reason the do it is probably because it doesn’t add a whole lot of time stopping at 2 transitway stations where nobody will get on (Walkley, Heron) then at Gladstone which is on the way anyways since it has to do the loop around Bayview.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    The R2 could simply just skip heron and walkley stations on the transitway?

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    That route will soon be reborn as new route 141 replacing the 112 trips (turning into the 140 Herongate-Billings bridge and 46 Billings bridge-Hurdman via 86 routing in Elmvale and Coronation area. -Charlie Source: http://www.kitchissippiward.ca/sites/default/files/Central_2018_Route_Network FINAL.pdf
