  1. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s a rear sign-only PR message that was mistakenly activated by the driver.
  2. 9225 seen on the 837 - École secondaire de l’Île this afternoon!
  3. 0914 died this afternoon in the École secondaire de l'Île loading zone, as it was starting a trip on the 434 de l'Île...
  4. 6481 just spotted on Sacré-Coeur/Maisonneuve with the rear sign showing “A1 ME”, something I haven’t seen in a very long time...
  5. @SMS I think it would be relevant to rename this thread "2019 OC Transpo Nova LFS Order" as the current title can lead to confusion between STO & OC Transpo.
  6. Possibly. However, the bus schedules and garage assignments barely changed. The biggest change is the driver run picks.
  7. The STO winter booking starts today! Get ready to start seeing some new faces driving your favourite bus routes.
  8. The 59 isn’t accessible (to my knowledge) The STO reprogrammed all of it’s destination signs last August and has 2 codes for every single destination, one that doesn’t have the wheelchair one with it. The idea behind it is that the pictogram is used to indicate the bus being accessible and not the line. Problem is that the NSAS doesn’t know the difference between an accessible bus and a non-accessible bus and so it always puts the non-wheelchair destination on the bus unless it’s operating a designated accessible line. When their consoles would quit working for whatever reason, some 12XX and 13XX buses had their destination signs consoles replaced with older consoles like on 02XX to 04XX buses that don’t interface with the NSAS and thus the driver has to manually enter codes (those consoles usually say “Pocatec” or “Balios” instead of “Axion”) In your case, the bus probably had an old console and the driver actually punched the right code in...
  9. The thing is that now many routes come into Ottawa via Mackenzie, bypassing the Rideau centre completely. I think the best spot is the Supreme Court or Terrasses. BTW I just about fell out of my chair when I saw that picture of 7901, seeing as they just recently moved it around to be the holiday bus at the Hull Garage.
  10. STO to buy card readers for all door boarding! http://www.sto.ca/index.php?id=813&L=fr&source=sto_mobile&utm_source=site+STO&utm_medium=Image+rotative&B57utm_campaign=Valideurs
  11. Hey folks! I don't know if such a thread already exists but my efforts to find such a thread were unsuccessfull, so here goes: This thread is for those who are looking for pictures of a specific transit vehicle when pictures cannot be found elsewhere. So if you happen to have a picture that is being seached for, feel free to post it here by quoting the request. Please be reasonable with your requests and remember that if someone doesn't want to share their pictures, that is their choice. Here is my request: I am looking for pictures of RTL 2-009, It seems to be one of those "ghost buses" that no transit picture site has a picture of, same for the wiki.
  12. I have excellent eyesight too, but filming out of an ad-wrap bus is really hard, thus making it bad.
  13. I'm impressed! They seem to be making good progress...
