  1. When 137/162/170 are replaced with the BLUE line in Spring 2020, Turnbull Drive service will be eliminated. The BLUE line will terminate at a new RT Station at Pembina/Rue Des Trappistes. Route 691 will service St Norbert.
  2. Lots of progress being made on and around the transitway. AT path is complete from Chevrier to Farwell Bay N, and from Somerville Dr to Daniel Street. Gaps remain at the McGillivary overpass and Pembina underpass. The seel station park and ride also appears to be complete, except for signage.
  3. They should also consider having fare gates at major stations (u of m, downtown, Osborne), to speed up the boarding process
  4. Any idea of a timeline of when it will enter into service/testing?
  5. How would grant east of Waverley/Cambridge be serviced if this were implemented?
  6. Good idea, except for the part where the bus has to fall off of the St Vital Bridge onto Churchill Drive (bike path?). Should be EB Jubilee, SB/EB Churchill to NB Morley.
  7. Tunnels are magnitudes safer than at-grade crossings, however I believe the city would be more inclined to build an at-grade crossing, as it is cheaper. Our city hall’s philosophy seems to be money first, safety second. Also, for crossings like this are they regulated/need to be approved by Transport Canada? Or is it just the city and CN that would need to come to an agreement?
  8. At least an at-grade pedestrian/cyclist crossing of the railroad directly North of Beaumont station should have been included in the initial scope of the project. This would connect Grant Park to the transitway. If would also be easier than the pedestrian crossing to Pembina as there are only 2 tracks to cross North of Beaumont, versus a railyard at Ft Rouge Station. They should consider using the $10M contingency from the massively under budget Waverley underpass project for this.
  9. I agree, but at least a mention on the RT project updates page or the walk bike projects page would be nice. Currently 1.25 km of trail is complete along the Transitway, and over 1 km of trail is complete along Georgina St/Hurst Way. The Hurst Way trail offers a connection between Pembina Hwy/Waverley St, and closes a significant gap in the network. That should merit some sort of communication to the public - not necessary to make a formal announcement, but a more informal update would be nice.
  10. Because realistically they probably won’t be completely finished until October, and by then the snowless season will be over. If part of it is done, then people should be made aware that they can utilize it. The end of construction season does not coincide with the cycling season.
  11. Has transit released a timeline for the AT infrastructure along the rapid transit corridor to be complete? They currently have a section complete and paved between Beaumont and Seel stations - but transit/the city never announced this.
  12. Does anyone know if the 137/161 super express routes will co-exist with BLUE, or simply be replaced? Is it possible that there will be a “BLUE Express” route that travels on the transitway, but does not stop at all stations?
  13. The website lists that there is the upcoming spring service change, but there is no summary of the changes. I’m assuming it’s only a reduction in the university routes?
  14. Looks like it'll be for 664 (replaces 64/86) and 684 (replaces 84)
  15. Does this mean that the route 51 will be eliminated?
