    First trip of 192 is run by a 111 East Mall run. Artics count? --- Check this out
  2. TTC Service Changes

    In the Huntingwood area, it's unlikely that most of the residents would consider public transit outside of rush. Most travelers on Huntingwood use public transit during rush hours. Some are more likely to use the bus during the mid-day and weekend daytime. Overall, it currently is a waste of 3 buses running late at night on weekends. This cut may displace a few people, but greater good; perhaps the three buses can be relocated elsewhere more useful. ???

    If they can easily consider alternatives, then this isn't much of a loss at all

    What I meant was that there aren't much wheelchair users along Huntingwood, let alone riders. People can walk, and plus, Huntingwood is a fairly safe community. Walking will not be a problem when this route gets cut.
  5. TTC Service Changes

    Locations along Huntingwood Dr and Commander Blvd are already very close to existing TTC routes with all day, everyday service. Walking would not be a major hassle to the demographics of the riders.

    I live along 10 and 169 and I have very strong knowledge about the route. I utilize 169A Huntingwood at all times of the day, even late night. 169B Huntingwood is a popular route operating 20-30 minute frequencies at full seating capacity by Victoria Park westbound in the AM, and in both directions in the PM. Off-peak, 169A Huntingwood operates to replace 10 Van Horne. During this time, most of the riders, including myself board and disembark on Van Horne Avenue. It is used to connect Van Horne passengers with Scarborough. Van Horne Avenue gets 90% of passengers along the whole round the clock, even late evenings, while Huntingwood recieves approximately 10% of the ridership. Cutting weekend late evening on Huntingwood Dr makes sense. Cutting Van Horne weekend late evening however is a bit of a concern. I hope this is the case, though I don't see that many people on Van Horne Avenue would actually directly complain to TTC.

    TTC is operating 509 Harbourfront all night, using runs from 510 Spadina because of the Spadina Avenue weekend streetcar restriction. Trackable right now under 310/510 runs. Also 1112 is on 301 Queen tracking under 95 York Mills, perhaps the first movement active at new division

    1112 is on Mount Dennis route 301 Queen incorrectly tracking as 95 York Mills from Malvern

  10. TTC Delays and Disruptions

    Timings for this would mean 1 hour and 15 minutes for the whole route one way. Frequencies would have to be less than every minute. 75 x 2 x 1.5 = 225 It's extremely hard and costly to manage roughly 225 buses and run crew, and street conditions on this long inconvenient route, especially coinciding with other financial expenses during subway closures.

    This is not a surprise. Many lights on transit vehicles can appear damaged. It's best to directly inform the driver of any issues you have with buses.

    300 has been operated by Malvern's 102 Markham Rd runs since Sunday.
  13. Today's Sightings

    On Sunday, February 18, 2018, TTC #1234 was the first Malvern bus to be assigned to a scheduled Malvern run on 102 Markham Rd at approximately 4:30am. It was the first Malvern trip to operate on 300 Bloor-Danforth. Additionally, 1234 was the first Malvern to visit Pearson Airport arriving at approximately 6:40am and completed 40km Pearson Airport to Kennedy Stn trips arriving at Kennedy at approximately 8:15am, the longest trip (in distance) in the TTC.
