    Apparently there'll be an AMA with Joanne Chianello on sunday?
  2. I believe all of the new novas have them.

    How old on the ones over there? I know STO's started doing that with i believe the 11XX buses and onwards. Before it was just all 3 seats as one.

    Yeah we'd need to buy more trains, and that was always the plan. No point in buying more trains than we need and have many just laying around doing nothing most days. We currently have 34, and we're getting 4 more between stage 1 and 2 to address potentially capacity issue the could crop up between when they get ramping up stage 2 vehicle production. Buying i think 38 LRVs with stage 2 (for a total of 76 if i'm remembering right) and that's for the increased track length to maintain the 5 minutes or less frequency during rush over, and some to add more total capacity (aka just having more trains on the line). the trains themselves can have a total of 5 module per vehicle (we're starting with 4). I believe we're starting with somewhere between 11-12 thousand PPDPH (transitway does a bit of 10 right now), and the max of the line, including the 5th modules and 90 minute frequency is about 24.

    Does anyone have, or know where i can see, any picture of the OCS at a switch? Specifically the wire that goes between the 2 tracks.

    Might be referring to these buses being 4th gen LFS and not 1st gens like the last ones?

    STO bus spottings

    can't say yet, didn't really take notice of it, and i'm not sure if that picture is just my phone or what.

    STO bus spottings

    On 1904 route 33 to cité at wellington and bank as I post this (18:55ish). It's got that new bus smell.

    Any idea on if they'll continue doing the 2 line system they have on the current buses, or if it'll be like STO's and just have a single line (also the Trillium line does that as well)?
  11. Really? I've used an STO monthly pass on them before, and i went by fine. If they were only charging direct fare, then i wouldn't get a green, since the eWallets aren't compatible. Can anyone else give some infomation to than? (i know the readers are currently down at the station, so i went by it today).
  12. Isn't the normal day pass a family pass on the weekend? I think that's what this person is asking about.

    STO 89xx-95xx Classic Spottings/Retirement Watch

    40s (and 50s) serve Aylmer, it's 20s and 30s for hull, (and freeman POB), though i do believe there is one 6X bus that does go to freeman.
  14. Ottawa (and gatineau) use A LOT of hydro-electric power. I'm not sure of the exact ratio, but it is by far the highest source of electricity. Plus even if we did fully use coal (or something else) it'd still be better to use electric buses on the pollution side, because a full scale power plant burns its fuel much more efficiently than a bus does.
  15. severity of the accident. Both the 269, and 76 made national headlines. While it is unfortunate the death happened, if we renumber a bus for each death the happens we'd run out of numbers quickly (especially if OC transpo wants to keep the regional numbering system). It make sense to only retire route numbers for the most severe cases.
