    OC Bus Spottings

    6401 is dead heading to Confederation square as route 9 Hurdman. Spotted at Tunney's @ 6:24 PM
  2. Lincoln Fields 2B (Off Only) has a new bus flag. Will post pictures to compare.

    8034 -> 97 Bells Corners (Richmond / Bayshore @ 6:38 AM) This trip is usually a 60 footer.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    While en route to Labrosse Station on the STO Rapi-Bus I noticed near Montcalm station that their was a local stop with route "100" on it with a light blue background (similar colour to our early morning service routes). Does anyone know what route this is? Edit Nvm... I was just curious about the background colour of the route since "pointe" is represented by a purple or red background.

    OC Transpo/STO Mistakes

    The OC Transpo Bus stop at Terrasses de Chaudiere lists the 95 as a local route instead of a rapid limited service route.
  8. I think you may be right. I may have mistaken it for Transcollines

    STO bus spottings

    1229 still had the old livery. 1102 has the all white livery similar to the classics.
  10. I don't think this has been mentioned. STO has removed ALL bike racks from their 09XX and up. It was falsely reported before that STO keeps them on year round.
  11. This was mentioned earlier in the GOA forum however here's a photo of the Lees incident back in 2003. Poor roll sign... (by the way, look at that bus stop with the 296 on it!)
  12. From my understanding those route are considered popular tourist routes that go through the downtown core. Just my guess.

    8155 was just towed away. Bus number 8154 is about to do a reenactment of how the event went down the way it did. Edit: I may have missed the reenactment. 8154 drove away via the transitway towards Tunney's Pasture. 8155 was towed towards Dominion and travelled along the John a MacDonald Parkway.

    I'm surprised no one has talked about this... At Westboro station there has been construction going on, on a overhead support beam of some sort since October. The construction detour made it so drivers heading towards Barrhaven or Kanata had to deal with a swerve in the road. This combined with black ice theory would make it a plausible cause as to this disaster... Though I'm not sure if it is still like this... 20181124_130552_2.mp4

    Yes and no. They can remove the canopy like they did with the upper level of Queensway station back in 2012, however this station is set to be demolished next year for LRT conversion so there is no point in any kind of modification until then. No know there's nothing to prevent it from jumping the curb because if we add something to prevent it from jumping then going to make the platform non accessible to those in wheelchairs

    As I've mentioned to people who aren't from Ottawa; the Canopy DOES NOT interfere with buses as it is over the platform and not the roadway. This is Lincoln Fields station; same design as Iris, Queensway, and Westboro stations.

    CPTDB Reached new "Most Online" Record

    I was going to say is probably a server related thing. Hell that number is probably already surpassed after what happened in Ottawa yesterday...

    Today at around 3:50 PM today, OC Transpo Double Decker #8155 (running as Connexion route 269) lost control and collided into the western platform shelter at Westboro station. As a result, 3 people (2 from the bus, 1 from the platform) have perished and 25 were injured (14 critical, 11 serious).

    Based on the extent of the damage and the fact people died, most likely... Wouldn't be surprised if they renumbered the route. They did that with route 76 a year after the September 18th, 2013, collision between 8017 and the VIA Rail Train, where they renumbered it to route 72 to honour the victims.
