  1. I believe you can drive RV's with a regular driver's license as long as they're not over 11,000kg or have air brakes. So that bus if converted to an RV, you would need to upgrade your license and get an air brake endorsement.
  2. Other transit agencies are having issues with Proterra as well. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/ca-agency-may-scrap-electric-bus-fleet-electric-buses-melt-california-sun-catch-fire-cost-much-fix/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=the-gateway-pundit&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=daily

  4. I do understand the joke behind it, but I wouldn't put the blame for having ancient way of doing sign up solely on TTC.
  5. 8300's are too good for Queensway. They should take 8100'd and 8200's. Probably just you. Most others don't really care what kind of bus they ride on.
  6. I hope when TTC orders a new batch of buses, that Wilson will get a lot of them and 8100 and 8200 series go to Queensway, so that we can keep watching your one trick pony act. Is it a hand me down boat?
  7. Does anyone even know the reason why not all vehicles have been delivered or is this just speculation? For all we know Bombardier was told to slow down the deliveries since completion of the line has been pushed back.
  8. We're allowed to be in any lane. Some drivers seem to only want to be in the right lane. From my experience far side stop is faster overall.
  9. Whatever they do have in these buses seems to only work for left turn signals at some intersections. I remember those lights at the Malvern wash rack. I think the bigger issue is that the city can't seem to program most lights properly. Why am I getting the same red lights night after night with no pedestrian traffic or cars coming out of side streets?
  10. TTC buses don't get signal priority to keep the light green. It's so much fun hitting a red after red after red. At some intersections we'll get an advanced left though. They even screw a lot of our tranist lights. For example, transit light coming out of Don Mills station is supposed to be 7 seconds long but in reality that light is 3 to 4 seconds long.
  11. Uniform comes after you complete training. No point giving them before as someone can fail right up to the last day. It usually takes a while to actually receive your uniform. Uniform supplier is very slow.
  12. It's really not that big of an issue. I agree with what ZummyZum said above.
  13. I know but I'm not going to reveal that info.
  14. Why would someone want to try a different mode? Because they can and want to do try something else. This is a really pointless question. And did you have to abbreviate subway to s.way?
