  1. GOA transit news, info etc

    Freezing rain forecast for today may cause service delays The forecasted freezing rain for today may cause service delays. Please plan ahead & consider taking an earlier trip. Call 560-1000 or check 560560, octranspo.mobi, or the MyTransit app for service status. Technical Difficulties for 560-560 and 560-1000 and Apps We are upgrading systems that provide information for 560560, 560-1000, Transit Information screens, the OC Transpo App and independent Apps, and are experiencing technical issues affecting schedule information. We have identified the main cause of the issues and expect to have a resolution in place early the week of Feb 26. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  2. STO bus spottings

    They should, according to the wiki, even the 1701 - 1730 has the new engine.
  3. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    I did as well. Already added "last seen" as the 19th (Monday).
  4. STO bus spottings

    Once the classics are off the streets (or if it's off peak) I'll try to board a 18XX and 17XX to compare the two. Do they still have that new bus smell?
  5. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Spotted 9403, 9133, 9138, 9108, 9135, 9132, 9137, 9204, 9519, 9138 (Again), 9224, 9131, 9136, 9512. Updating Google Sheets soon.
  6. STO bus spottings

    Spotted 1802 & 1811
  7. OC Bus Spottings

    5080 -> 97 South Keys (Lincoln Fields Station @12:38 PM)
  8. STO bus spottings

    Here's the small list I created for the 2018 Hybrids that are in service. The point in me making this spread sheet is to combine all hybrids into one sheet and to keep notes/photos on each model. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OekvLxf1_rLPnQIBVeidHYIJAVI4K0l--ylzul1u2FE/edit?usp=sharing
  9. Is OC's GPS system getting updated or something? It seems a little off than usual, especially now when I search Lincoln Fields Station it referred as "Lincoln F Station". Also when I search Lincoln Fields or Bayshore Station, I get a new route that shows up on the bottom of my list showing "899 Billings Bridge" and "899 Bayshore", find it strange now the employee shuttle now shows up as route "899" running every 30 minutes.
  10. STO bus spottings

    1806 seen in service during PM rush.
  11. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    9403 was spotted today by a Facebook transit group member. Reclassifying it from UNKNOWN to ACTIVE on my Google Sheets. *https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/126-8dkbJKNshlxCBMmK9ZUBFYX77B2APDYSsjnQjjAg/edit?usp=sharing*
  12. Feature Photo Submissions

    A 1992 STO MCI Classic seen running as route 46 through downtown Ottawa. A 2004 OC Transpo NFI D40i seen running as route 97 at Lincoln Fields Station.
  13. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Because they're equipped with a NSAS which uses a GPS system to announce the next stop. And no, STO doesn't make their GPS system open source (which is why there are no apps to track it in real time).
  14. STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    Here's a spread sheet I've created to best reflect the status on the classics. Tell me what you guys think. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/126-8dkbJKNshlxCBMmK9ZUBFYX77B2APDYSsjnQjjAg/edit?usp=sharing
  15. STO 7901 Spottings (2018)

    We can only hope STO does preserve one, It wouldn't even have to be road ready, they can just disable it and pin it's wheel like OC did with 8222 and 4024 and store it in a garage.
