  1.

  2. Has anyone heard the fate of #1285 and #1658? They haven’t moved for the last week or two in 1810 but they could be possibly be decommissioned or not.
  3. I guess no service on Hullmar at all. But come to think of it, why not have the TTC split off the 108A via Grandravine and the 35B on Hullmar between Sheppard West and Pioneer Village stations to become the route of its own?
  4. Come to think of it, what about route shuffles when LINE 5 EGLINTON opens? My guess the affected routes involved or not involved would transfer garages but that would be a tough challenge. With the 34 EGLINTON losing bus service between Don Mills and Kennedy, there could be a possible way to pay this off but there could be divisional assignments for both the 2021 and 2022 Service Plans: - 13 AVENUE ROAD - Wilson - 18 CALEDONIA - Wilson - 19 BAY - Birchmount - 27 JANE SOUTH - Mount Dennis - 32/332 EGLINTON WEST - Mount Dennis - 34/334 EGLINTON - Wilson or Eglinton/Mount Dennis - 35/935/335 JANE - Arrow Road - 47 LANSDOWNE - Mount Dennis - 51 LESLIE - McNicoll - 52/952/352 LAWRENCE WEST - Mount Dennis - 54/954/354 LAWRENCE EAST - Eglinton - 74 MOUNT PLEASANT - Eglinton - 89/989 WESTON - Wilson - 103 MOUNT PLEASANT NORTH - Eglinton - 107 YORK UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS - Wilson - 121 FRONT-ESPALANDE - Birchmount - 150 EASTERN - Birchmount - 158 TRETHEWEY - Mount Dennis - 170 EMMETT - Mount Dennis - 172 CHERRY BEACH - Birchmount - 178 BRIMORTON - Malvern - 179 CASTLEFIELD - Mount Dennis
  5. You want new buses delivered to Queensway? It’s already 30 years ago dude @Genius101
  6. Buses #7937, #7950 and the others buses you mentioned: 6 ES buses, 2 COVID buses and 4 EMS buses are still active in the TTC roster as non-revenue buses. Only 8 are retired from the roster.
  7. June/July Service Changes from the TTC Coupler: http://ttc.ca/Coupler/Editorial/News/00_new_story_3.jsp Among them will be the following renumbering of the routes in anticipation of Line 5 and Line 6 openings in the next two years: — 5 AVENUE ROAD -> 13 AVENUE ROAD (This was originally planned in September 2016) — 6 BAY -> 19 BAY
  8. It’s only the beginning. #1005 and #1047 are WiFi equipped and soon to be used in service on 35 JANE. #1137 has since been withdrawn before being fitted with WiFi.
  9. Looks like they were wrong. According to the VINs of DRT #8330-#8332, these buses are NOT WMATA rejects, but originally built for the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority. - #8330 - 2B1569P78V6033266 | Rockland Coaches #1016/NORTA #97351 - #8331 - 2B1569P71V6033450 | Gray Line (Houston) #4020/NORTA #974XX - #8332 - 2B1569P7XV6033267 | Rockland Coaches #1002/NORTA #97352
  10. All 15 buses in the RapidTO wrap have been removed.
  11. What @bus_7246 said to me is true. Both of them are now officially toast.* #1229 is also canned as well. * - EDIT: Disregard. See my next post.
  12. Service summary for the May period is out: https://www.ttc.ca/PDF/Transit_Planning/Service Summary 2021-05.pdf As it was in the last board, there are a few errors that they need to address: - The 302 KINGSTON ROAD-McCOWAN BLUE NIGHT is now operated by Malvern Garage instead of Birchmount Garage because the majority of its runs have been originated from 102 MARKHAM ROAD with some from 21 BRIMLEY. Previously, they were originated from 24 VICTORIA PARK. - Also in the error list is the 312 ST. CLAIR-JUNCTION BLUE NIGHT. The route was switched to Wilson Garage as its runs come from routes 47 and 89 during the day. - All eight garages (except Lakeshore) now run 300 BLOOR-DANFORTH BLUE NIGHT and McNicoll now has some runs on the 320 YONGE BLUE NIGHT. - Mount Dennis Garage has some 396 WILSON BLUE NIGHT runs coming from 927 HIGHWAY 27 EXPRESS.
  13. What do you expect? You can have some of our 31-33xxs from McNicoll or Arrow Road. Queensway's last bus delivery was in 1991 when they had 35 Orion Vs. And @Genius101, we’ll take some or all of the Orion VIIs in return.
  14. I could be possibly considered either movement or preventative repairs but... MtD>Mal: #1082, #1088, #1203, #1325, #1353, #1361, #1415, #1417
  15. Shunsuke Kikuchi, the reowned composer of the popular Japanese manga and anime series, Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, dead at the age of 89.
  16. Tracker spotting: TTC: #1022, #1077 and #1272 are at Malvern to perform repairs. Not likely a movement, but these will eventually return to their home garage.
  17. State media reports that Idriss Deby Itno, President of the Republic of Chad, reported to have been killed at the age of 68, during the insurgency. Black Rob, a rapper for "Whoa" died at 52.
  18. Bump. Nobody mentioned the Wilson station modernization in this thread. They recently added elevators and this piece of art in my September 2020 visit. Images of the Warden Station bus terminal to be completed by 2024. This design will replace the existing bays at the station. Link: https://strasmanarch.com/project/ttc-warden-station/
  19. A recall has been issued for New Flyer 2013-2021 XE40, 2019-2021 XE35, 2018-2021 XE60, 2016-2019 XHE40, and 2015 XHE60 vehicles. Firmware errors in the inverters may cause the electric drive system to shutdown. A sudden loss of power to the wheels increase the risk of a crash. https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/7/VRDB-BDRV/search-recherche/detail.aspx?lang=eng&mk=5680&mkName=NEW FLYER&md=0&fy=0&ty=9999&ft=&ls=0&sy=0&syName=All Systems&all=0&rn=2021206&cf=SearchResult&pg=0 https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls?nhtsaId=21V244000&refurl=rss
  20. #1343 and #1656 were at Malvern since late March. I spotted the latter bus on 116C on March 28th and the first bus on April 3 NIS.
  21. This would be the arrangement what the 116A/E used to look like. In the morning, the 116E operated express eastbound and the 116A operated westbound. Similarly, during the afternoon, the 116A ran eastbound and the 116E ran westbound. The new 905A does that in both directions, unless they would’ve kept the 116A operating in a bidirectional way.
