  1. Since trains on Lines 2 and 3 don't even possess most of the interior security cameras, this incident on early Saturday is a huge consequence. Would the TTC able to retrofit security cameras on all the T1s and the Mark I/S1 cars so incidents like this one won't happen again? Discuss.
  2. Five buses has entered service:  #3447 | 95B YORK MILLS #3458 | 95A YORK MILLS #3503 | 95C YORK MILLS #3507 | 95A YORK MILLS #3514 | 395 YORK MILLS NIGHT / 95 YORK MILLS
  3. According to the current service summary, the last 939B EXPRESS weekday trips heading westbound to Finch West Stn. is 10:09pm and eastbound to Scarborough Centre Stn. is at 10:24pm. In addition, the last 939B EXPRESS trips end at 6:50pm (EB) and 6:58pm (WB) on Saturdays and 6:55pm (WB) and 7:06pm (EB) on Sundays.
  4. Sorry to bump a decade old thread, especially you @TransitFan88, I found the latest sign illregularites on the 900-series express buses as well as some local routes. The 43A KENNEDY and 343 KENNEDY southbound buses have read KENNEDY with no spaces. Since 2014, all 67 PHARMACY buses has letters now spaced out reading "P H A R M A C Y". 123F SHERWAY has the exposures on the front similar to the style used in 2007. 900 AIRPORT EXPRESS buses read 900 AIRPORT EXPRESS > TO KIPLING SUBWAY on the southbound exposures. 902 MARKHAM ROAD EXPRESS signs are spaced to the right except for the number. 905 EGLINTON EAST EXPRESS buses on the side signs programmed to display: 905 EGLINTON > EAST > EXPRESS > TO U of T SCARBOROUGH Some routes like 23 DAWES and 40 JUNCTION have lacked the "TO" when they are terminating at subway stations.
  5. Seems to me the LFS Hybrid units are now in weekend service: #3407 (39B), #3426 (53A), #3440 (131), #3465 (134A), #3501 (39B)
  6. Who wants a ex-HSR 2005 D40LF for $7 million? https://www.kijiji.ca/v-heavy-trucks/oshawa-durham-region/2005-new-flyer-d40lf-transit-bus/1418475651?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  7. Disregard that. It was sent back to Malvern after a few days at Wilson. Wil>Mal: #9014
  8. Just for the record, New Flyer has unveiled the Xcelsior® Charge H2™ bus. Can a designation of "XHE40" and "XHE60" be put into use? https://www.newflyer.com/buses/xcelsior-chargeh2/
  9. One of the most ridiculous but complex routes that has never given a letter designation for a long time: the 133 NEILSON. Since this route enters the Rouge Valley Centenary Hospital at all times, southbound AM buses and northbound PM buses usually skipped that stop. Due to its confusion, why not give the 133 the proper branch letters to make it easier: 133A Scarborough Centre Stn.-Morningside Heights via Centenary 133B Scarborough Centre Stn.-Morningside Heights
  10. For the past few weeks, it appears there is a red info thing installed on Danforth Road and Savarin Street (both sides) meaning the 16 McCOWAN may have some stops designated as shared Wheel-Trans stops since I passed by it during construction on the watermain that happened since last month.
  11. Service Changes for April-May 2019: Extension of the DUFFERIN local (29) and express (929) to Princes' Gates loop due to construction at the Roncesvalles Carhouse. Jane station roadway reconstruction: New schedules are released though Jane station will remain operational until construction begins in mid-May. 26 DUPONT and 55 WARREN PARK are extended to Old Mill Stn. while the JANE local (35) and express (935) will offload at westernmost bus bay and loading will take place at a northbound bus stop on Jane Street near the entrance. Service on the 335 JANE NIGHT remains unaffected. YORK MILLS may get a massive overhaul. 95B midday service to UTSC are heavily replaced by the new 995 Express and 95C "Ellesmere Stn" services.
  12. Looks like according to the old photos I saw, I have gathered the license plates for some of the 1981 ex-UTA GMs. Any other remaining 13 units, questions or concerns are welcomed.
  13. A few things I have in mind. Thanks to @Robert Lubinski for some information: 1987-1989 Orion 03.501 "III" / Ikarus Bus 286 #6360-#6419, #6530-#6559 Which units of the IIIs when they were first delivered to? I know Arrow and Malvern as well as Wilson had these buses. 1987 New Flyer D40 #6300-#6359 When new, Birchmount (#6300-#6329), Queensway (#6330-#6344) and Wilson (#6345-#6359) were the first garages to operate them (the Queensway group later merged with the Wilson group). Are there any subsequent movements to Lansdowne, Wilson, Arrow, Danforth and Malvern between the period of 1990 to 1997 when the wrap crazed trend began in the 1990s? Any Malvern units assigned at that period? Though #6302 and #6303 were later Malvern units. 1988 New Flyer D40 #6420-#6434 All buses in this group were delivered to Davenport. After Davenport closed in 1993, did Wilson or Old Eglinton receive them? Birchmount had the only 1988 D40 (#6434) by 1999-2000. Did all of these buses move to Queensway by late 2000 or early 2001 which they spent a decade there? 1989 New Flyer D40 #6440-#6521 Buses were delivered originally distributed to Malvern (#6440-#6449), Danforth (#6450-#6459), Birchmount (#6460-#6471), Old Eglinton (#6472-#6481), Davenport (#6482-#6491, #6520, #6521), Lansdowne (#6492-#6501), Queensway (#6502-#6511) and Wilson (#6512-#6519). That's one small group of large order of buses scattered across every TTC garage. By 1990s, did Wilson or Old Eglinton receive the 1989 D40s before being consolidated at Queensway by late 2000 or early 2001 which they spent a decade there? 1990 New Flyer D40 #6560-#6638 These buses were originally delivered to Danforth (#6560-#6604) and Old Eglinton (#6605-#6638) when new. Did any of the buses from the Danforth/Eglinton get shuffled around? When Lansdowne Garage closed in 1996, the Danforth units #6560-#6588, #6590-#6604, #6608, #6618, #6620 and #6624 moved to Arrow Road which received #6613, #6616, #6628 and #6630 from Old Eglinton. Queensway then got #6605-#6607, #6609-#6612, #6614, #6615, #6617, #6619, #6621-#6623, #6625-#6627, #6629, #6631-#6633, #6635, #6637 and #6638 from Old Eglinton as well though #6589 became Danforth's last 1990 D40 bus. Did any of the Arrow or Queensway buses as well as #6589 moved to Malvern beginning from 1997 onwards? 1991 Orion 05.501 "V" #6640-#6745 Based on his information in which Birchmount (#6640-#6679), Queensway (#6680-#6714), and Davenport (#6715-#6745) received its buses from 1991-92 (Davenport's units were later moved to Malvern in 1993), by the late 1990s (sometime around 1996-1998) did any of Birchmount, Queensway or Malvern units moved to Old Eglinton when they got a repaint at that period? Did anyone know when Birchmount consolidate all 106 Orion V buses in 1999-2000 when they receive the UWE connectors? I know buses #6701-#6705 and #6707-#6745 were obviously moved to Queensway (if some older board members may remember that the D901s were being canned around 2004-05). The rest up to #6719 moved to retire the Classics and finished up at Mount Dennis a few years later.
  14. Don't forget that bus: Wil>Mal: #9017 Perhaps they could be in service by the next day or two. Mal>Wil: #3433
  15. Though possibly not a movement but more likely used as storage space: Mal>Bir: #3408, #3416, #3429, #3434, #3439, #3440, #3451 Can you confirm it @Bus_Medic if its a movement or storage?
  16. TTC - All photos must be credited under "C.G.", though choose the ones that can be uploaded or rejected. #1071, #1096, #1739. #3175, #3234, #3289, #3400, #3420, #3422, #8876
  17. I am also having issues with the mobile version of the board in which the Music app pauses the music that is playing on the iPhone 4s (iOS 9.3.5). Any fixes like that may be appreciated to keep the music playing while browsing the board.
  18. Same with #7936. That bus needs a new tracker if the CAD/AVL system kicks in. There could be enough Flexity or CLRV cars can be put to use on the 511 BATHURST if that is the case.
  19. So I guess sayanora BYD and Proterra? https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/toronto-orders-an-additional-10-new-flyer-battery-electric-transit-buses-858120135.html?fbclid=IwAR2dwLD4uKL-2aFQeXLaJlVk07ApkKMOByEfBzBdLaUj3IZuJaOKpAlHgq4https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/toronto-orders-an-additional-10-new-flyer-battery-electric-transit-buses-858120135.html?fbclid=IwAR2dwLD4uKL-2aFQeXLaJlVk07ApkKMOByEfBzBdLaUj3IZuJaOKpAlHgq4
  20. Not my photo, but seems bus #7936 remains active despite not tracking online and still plated. Photo by Rob Pineault‎.
  21. Neither of the buses on the routes are special, though they are a common sight.
