  1. Just heard on the TTC radio that Vision is down, so surface level vehicle tracking is down as well, meaning all the apps don't work neither do the vehicle arrival screens.
  2. I guess we have the answer now, though another year is tough to swallow.
  3. Yeah I've been hearing Crosstown testing chatter on the TTC radio for many months... But I guess there's still no firm date. Is the Yonge/Eglinton station still the major issue? I found this article/video from late August, and it looks like its still a long way to go, especially Eglinton Station. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2022/08/19/eglinton-crosstown-lrt-toronto-transit-opening/
  4. Is the Crosstown still on track to open this year? Have there been any recent announcements with a firm date?
  5. Is this a change since covid? I've taken the SRT shuttle many times over the years before covid, and they alwasy went thru the Lawrence SRT station. I've taken the SRT much less frequently since covid began, so i haven't been caught in a shuttle situation.
  6. Isnt that how it always is? One thing for sure, that adds a crapload of extra time.
  7. yeah its been down all day. I havent been listening to the radio today so I dont know the specifics.
  8. Oh I'm pretty sure they have signs already stashed in maintenance rooms. Multiple-hour service interruptions are commonplace. Contingency? Nope, just wait it out with shuttle buses. Not sure if you remember it was down for an entire week after the epic snowstorm this past winter. I hope they can agree on the intermediate plan sooner than later, to demolish the kennedy to ellesmere tracks and use that for shuttle buses until the scarborough subway extension is done.
  9. Scarborough RT has been down all day due to signal issues, but they are trying to bring it back up. Plan is to run ghost trains without opening doors to see if the signals will hold. This thing can't be put out to pasture soon enough.
  10. Probably one that had speed control bypassed due to an issue.
  11. I have heard of a number of delays caused by a racoon on the warden/vic park open cut. Earlier this year they even had a dog that ran all the way from warden to main station where they finally caught him.
  12. Yeah possible, there are a few service gates along the way maybe they don't quite go down low enough for a small child to crawl under.
  13. Yeah its quite amazing that she didn't get electrocuted. I hope we hear at some point how she managed to get on the tracks, but there was probably a hole in the fencing somewhere in the open cut between Vic Park & Warden, there are a number of low rise and high rise buildings there...
  14. 4 year old girl found wandering the subway tracks at night at Warden Station taken to safety by a subway operator. https://www.cp24.com/news/four-year-old-girl-safely-returned-home-after-found-wandering-train-tracks-at-warden-station-1.6022827 014000_53_100020.wav 014255_62_100273.wav
  15. There was nothing except a voluntary act as confirmed by TTC on their cameras as I heard live on the TTC radio. The police always investigate a serious incident at track level.
  16. Wow, adding two trains for the weekdays? big whoop but I guess its better than nothing.
  17. The guy apparently ran down the subway tracks after and hopped a fence and was arrested shortly after by police. It'll be interesting to hear more details as there really have been none whatsoever.
  18. Thats pretty bold the TTC claiming she shouldn't have been travelling alone... Not a good thing to be telling the public.
  19. Yes, and in return millions of other stupid kids couldn't see the stupidity and instantly try to repeat it. The stupidity stayed mostly local. It didn't lead to the stupidity of TikTok challenges.
  20. 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.
  21. Ah, that took a while. The extension to Conlins was about a year ago in May, wasnt it?
  22. Anyone know why the 905 Scarborough East Express is now showing 905A on all buses?
  23. 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.
  24. Well, its pretty clear now, they aren't gonna raise the service level on Line 2 until at least the fall.
  25. I wonder if they are planning to install automatic gates like at Queens Quay tunnel.
