  1. The 2nd one at Warden ended not being one and cleared shortly, apparently it was a contact on the platform and the victim got on a train on the opposite side - as described by witnesses because camera view was obstructed by a sign.
  2. Ah, that took a while. The extension to Conlins was about a year ago in May, wasnt it?
  3. Anyone know why the 905 Scarborough East Express is now showing 905A on all buses?
  4. They're always getting robbed too. I hear that several times a week on the TTC radio. The one at Kennedy Station is still up & running. In other news, the woman who was pushed to the subway tracks and survived the ordeal, has filed a lawsuit against the TTC for $1M. https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/woman-pushed-onto-tracks-at-bloor-yonge-station-sues-ttc-for-1-million-1.5900839 I usually hate frivolous lawsuits and ambulance chaser type cases, but I think she is right in this case. The city and the TTC has allowed the subway system to be an underground mental asylum, where the homeless, junkies and all kinds of psychos are free to roam and terrorize the public.. Maybe this will bring some light to the problem that needs to be addressed on a wider scale.
  5. Well, its pretty clear now, they aren't gonna raise the service level on Line 2 until at least the fall.
  6. I wonder if they are planning to install automatic gates like at Queens Quay tunnel.
  7. Is the TTC site down for anyone? I get this error when I go on my computer (tried multiple browsers), ipad, as well as my phone via wifi or cellular. Edit: looks like it has been fixed. It wasn't just me, there were complaints on TTC's twitter as well.
  8. The TTC Orions VII's were/are rattle machines, but the Nova LFS have held up remarkably well when it comes to that. But it may have to do with the suspension, its much more comfortable on the Nova LFS. I haven't ridden anything else to compare.
  9. How about this nutjob on the subway today eh? 191646_34_60101.wav
  10. I read somewhere recently that had a list of upcoming TTC construction, and I remember seeing something mentioned that they will be doing overhead upgrades on Kingston road to Bingham loop for panto operation this year, I just don't remember the timeframe. That will of course mean bus substitution again for the 503. Has anyone seen this document and perhaps can post a link or provide a timeline? Thanks.
  11. Look I'm not saying lock these folks up and throw away the key. But there needs to be a better solution out there rather than the public at large be at a constant danger of being attacked by severily mentally ill people who are also often addicted to hard drugs.
  12. They keep getting released and if they dont take their meds then you get what happens. They keep attacking and killing innocent people, get slapped with a NCR and out on the streets where they don't take their meds and there it goes again. At some point the safety and security of a functioning society should take priority, no?
  13. Yeah, crazy... But that's what happens when society lets seriously mentally ill people roam the streets without consequence.
  14. Yeah but it took YEARS for the Flexity to be decently reliable.
  15. Toronto Police have arrested a woman that pushed another woman onto the subway tracks last Sunday. Thankfully that woman managed to crawl under the platform to avoid being hit and suffered only minor injuries. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/woman-pushed-onto-tracks-hit-by-ttc-train-cops
  16. That would be smart, and for future shuttle bus use when the subway is down for whatever reason.
  17. Pedestrian struck by bus 8656 at Don Mills & Eglinton. https://www.cp24.com/video?clipId=2423683&jwsource=cl
  18. I think at some point they will be artics, because there will be a temporary terminal for other routes where the parking lot is, and the existing bus bays will be used for artics. I think there were some plans posted on Steve Munro's site detailing some of the changes after the SRT tracks are removed and there is a dedicated run from Kennedy to Ellesemere.
  19. I wonder if they still have an operator shortage, but didn't they convert a part of the YUS to one man operation? That would have given them extra bodies.
  20. Yeah but ridership is increasing and they are still running Sunday service on weekdays in peak hours.
  21. I always thought that it was a dumb move to even attempt to trial these buses that required a proprietary charging system. At least its only 10 of the initially agreed upon 20 buses.
  22. Yeah, good (kind of). I know it will be good once done, but the construction horrors is what I don't want. But its probably safe for 8-10 years before it even begins. And yeah, the Red transit priority lanes and removed stops on Eglinton/Kingston are actually pretty good in terms of speeding stuff up. It took a while for drivers to adjust but its good especially on a semi-express route like 905.
  23. Looks like the final report on the eBuses is out. Looks like New Flyers could be the winning pick, which would also maybe explain why the TTC chose New Flyer hybrids, maybe some parts sharing there. https://stevemunro.ca/2022/04/10/ttc-ebus-study-final-results/
  24. Are they gonna start on the eastern extension as well? or is the Scarborough Subway Extension priority in the east end now? I am dreading the day that they start that though, as it will eventually make its way into my neighbourhood and will be a nightmare for many years until its finished.
  25. That's true I forget how bad the rear gets in all the Nova's in the summer.
