  1. Here is an old General Electric traffic signal control cabinet that used to stand at the southern Smyth off ramp at Riverside Drive, but I believe it has since been replaced. Photo taken June 2016.
  2. Here is a photo of that pavilion, with 8533 as the centrepiece. http://bobbea.com/expo-86/hungary.html
  3. Some observations: The intersection of Riverdale and Belmont has 2 of the 'No Pedestrian Crossing' signs. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3941703,-75.6790398,3a,15.3y,71.65h,93.14t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1szD0mqYT9qmX8QSQJcGQVdA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DzD0mqYT9qmX8QSQJcGQVdA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D66.8934%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100 Also, that intersection as well as Riverdale and Sunnyside both have what seem to me as old stop lights in odd configurations, given the compact nature of the intersections. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3959352,-75.6792846,3a,25.8y,45.37h,91.14t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1snUE8ORLM3hSyBWtZHFyydg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Some other signs: A street sign at the intersection of Pleasant Park Rd. and Delmar Dr, that says 'PROM PLEASANT PK DR' is somewhat interesting for several reasons. The first being that it abbreviates park to 'PK', and that that is not the case on any other signs for this road, and that Pleasant Park is a Road, not a Drive. I believe that these may just be due to the age of the sign? https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3942164,-75.6437197,3a,15y,220.06h,89.3t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1srhBJeBF6HTMRpP-mpK4o-w!2e0!5s20150901T000000!7i13312!8i6656 Another sign along Pleasant Park: a sign for Pleasant Park Woods which has the old city logo, the coat of arms. (Edit: see photo 1 at bottom) And a similar type of sign that is along Kilborn Ave. that says Greenspace | Espace Vert. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3872943,-75.6530287,3a,21.6y,122.98h,82.65t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1slSo2ktAlNfDJD5DjupjswA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Now for some old bus shelters: Kilborn/Harding 7277- White bus shelter with a wooden bench on the inside. I put the streetview from 2009 because the most recent one has a woman sitting on the step, and you get a nice view of a maple leaf bus stop flag. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3891108,-75.6319831,3a,27.6y,214.16h,79.23t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1suJv_6iIJz2ex97ysgVxjMA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Belfast/Trainyards 8595- White bus shelter with a wooden bench on the inside as well. Only would have been installed either 2010 or 2011, judging by Geo-Ottawa. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.4145901,-75.6417908,3a,27.3y,248.99h,84.31t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sB81swI09qU7W9XAgIrnaAQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 At the entrance to the SE Transitway next to Riverside Stn. used by the 49, there is a sign that when illuminated displays "TRANSITWAY | CLOSED | DO NOT ENTER". I have never seen this sign lit up, but in the streetview it actually just might be. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.395778,-75.6702788,3a,28.5y,60.83h,91.23t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sFK-AanMmfShyuFYaBtmETw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 And finally, some bonus 'No Pedestrian Crossing' signs at the same intersection. No point changing these sign to the 'Cross Other Side' ones, since you are not allowed to cross Riverside here at all, not like anyone would have to. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3961388,-75.6701663,3a,27.5y,267.12h,89.4t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s-NsvwsS9NgOGkIRyz6ospQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Sorry for the long post, but thought it would make more to just bundle all of them into one. Enjoy! 1

  5. Those pedestrian crossings are also nearly identical to this one on Alta Vista Dr, with the only difference (that I can see) being that the 8-8-8's are mounted on the mast.

  8. I’m not sure if you get this, but you really are not helping yourself. Take the hints: don’t bother policing the threads. If someone were to really care and have an issue with a post, they will let a moderator know. Posting a sarcastic comment or something slightly off-topic does not affect anyone, so let it be and don't try to create totally unnecessary conflict.
  9. This brief news article has been posted to the OC Transpo website, saying that stop info will start changing over to the post-LRT opening info. http://www.octranspo.com/en/news/article/signs-of-change/
  10. Does anyone know if OC Transpo would change the summer service/booking change date (June 23rd) to coincide with the LRT service change if an opening date’s known by then?
  11. The OC Transpo website and official app will be receiving cosmetic updates (the app is way overdue, in my opinion) in the near future. The OC Transpo mobile website will also be retired, as the full website is changing so it will automatically adjust to fit your device’s screen. News Article Here
