  1. "I'm not comfortable not collecting fares without a shield. What if I get a passenger who insists on paying?" (Credit where credit is due, I heard a 99 driver make a joke to that effect. That wouldn't even be the strangest thing to happen on a bus.)
  2. The actual site is immediately north of the old Wentworth garage. It is a new lot with Hillyard, Brant and Birch on three sides. The HSR will get a brand new garage/office facility, and the existing building will likely remain a City Works facility.
  3. But the 51 is only running half service in peak hours, so there should be a few 60-footers to spare.
  4. True. Transit 55 shows 913 in service in Jan/Feb, and pics are floating around on Facebook. I have witnessed 932 in service, and it was active as recently as yesterday.
  5. Not only was it retired due to a fire, it caught fire again on Red Hill while being towed away after it was sold off.
  6. Well, something is up, because a Delaware is on Albright right now. Update: Don't see anything on the Fire Dept. Twitter. Police activity, maybe? It would not be out of place down there.
  7. For real? If so, nice research, Urbanicity.
  8. According to Transit 55, both were in service as recently as Wednesday.
  9. Maybe they can do a neater job of it. 1426, for example, has an ad that partially covers the HSR logo. It just looks sloppy. Either leave the logo exposed or cover the whole thing.
  10. Normally, I'd say the HSR might want to look at this, but this one is on GO Transit. 1:20 has been the known final departure for decades. If it meant tweaking one HSR bus schedule, fine, but you don't extend several schedules for one connection, you change the single bus schedule, ie. GO 16. There are fourteen(?) departures from downtown at 1:20. Now, should the HSR run later into the evening? Probably, but that's a different issue. (BTW, last Cannon bus is at midnight)
  11. So does that mean that 616 is already considered replaced by a Nova?
  12. I think those stickers are good until the end of the sixth month from the indicated date.
  13. I thought something was off with that list. To begin with, Waterdown is alternating 15 out of Aldershot, not 20. And synching routes with different frequencies and different days of service would be a task. Technically, the Ancaster/ Dundas stuff would be true in year 3 as part of the Delaware improvements, which I believe was okayed by Council. Maybe you can clarify what those Delaware changes would be. I'm guessing that rush-hour improvements would mean every 5C continues to the Meadowlands. As for Sunday enhancements, it's already 12-minute common service. The only step up I could see would be 10-minute common service with 30-minute service to each end. Again, I'm just asking, not spreading rumours. As for any major changes to the Waterdown service, I would think it would be wise to run a bus from downtown Hamilton eventually, but it just seems to make sense to wait until the Clappison's Interchange is completed.
  14. No, that was a friend of mine, just a regular passenger who would normally sit at the back of the bus. He never cared about what type of bus he got on before the Novas hit Hamilton. Now he knows those buses because: - it's way too hot at the back (so true) - they rattle too much (true again) - the seat layout is stupid (actually, I disagree with him on that one) The foamers/ fanners seem to overlook the shortcomings.
