  1. I saw an 85X Special at Bayshore Station recently as well, but it still seemed to have Gatineau as the destination, at least on the GPS feed. Not sure why they exist, though. Might be used as an extra or when the final destination isn't known to the operator for that trip? I mean an 85 Gatineau ends at Terrasses, but an 85X might signify it might end before or at Terrasses? Back in the day, they used the X routes to tell passengers the trip was a special branch of a route (i.e.: 97X South Keys vs 97 Airport, 97X Nepean N vs 97 Bayshore vs 97X Tunney's Pasture, etc.). Though, after the service changes in 2011 I recall the X signage to become rarer (i.e.: 97X South Keys was just the 97 South Keys). I have seen on a couple occasions, though, buses signed up as simply X Special... that is a very mysterious route... That was being built while I was a student at Algonquin, which was between 2010 and 2015. I still remember the 118 (now route 88) having to basically loop around the old station to continue west on Baseline, sometimes at speeds... good times. At the time, the roadway between Baseline Stn and Constellation Cres wasn't built, and Constellation Cres was a literal crescent, joining to Centrepointe Dr at both ends (the southern end of the old crescent is now Gemini Way, as Constellation now ends at Baseline Rd and connects Baseline Rd to the Transitway). I also remember the 118 not getting many articulated buses, but mostly Orion VI and New Flyer D40i buses instead, as the city used what D60LFs they had on the 95 and 97. That changed when they received the D60LFRs and started retiring the Orion VI.
  2. Route 11 Parliament is at stop 4A, not stop 4B.
  3. If you're referring to the illuminated street signs, they're all over Katimavik-Hazeldean in Kanata, or at least they were at one point. https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3043242,-75.8931541,3a,31.1y,204.23h,81.1t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sQIB55wzUaUVGwd45Pbhl5w!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3024859,-75.8941554,3a,16.4y,93.43h,84.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1so8wGFfnQ8eihQdxvgGVeTA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 Here's an old City of Kanata street sign (which looks fairly new, even though Kanata hasn't been a city since 2001): https://www.google.com/maps/@45.3154971,-75.892076,3a,34.1y,213.48h,79.4t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sHcvEqc2iHkS7ECWNxy_A-w!2e0!5s20140601T000000!7i13312!8i6656
  4. Looks like some trips operate between Laurier E and Tunney's Pasture Stn as well, at least during weekday midday, but I do not see any reference to the old trips via Charlotte in the timetables either.

  6. 6367 —> 57 Bells Corners at 25 Fitzgerald at 8:26 am; the rear NSAS was missing but the enclosure to house one was there...

  8. 5169 —> 88 Terry Fox at Baseline / QCH at 8:15 am
  9. 4291 on the 58 Tunne’s Pasture, according to the NSAS inside the bus... looks like somebody forgot to ask y EDIT: 8:11 am at Bayshore Stn
  10. 6682 —> 88 Hurdman at QCH at 4:30 pm Overrode the doors again as I got off
  11. I've noticed that too and wondered if these particular "flat" pedestrian signals are older, or simply a slightly different design than the others. Are they manufactured by the same company that built the "dome" ped signals?
  12. Currently riding 5167 on the 57 to work and I didn’t see it on your list @Enviro_1203 so does that mean this bus stays in service (for now)?
  13. 5167 on the 57 Bells Corners this morning. Rode it from Bayshore at 8:05 am to Fitz to work.
  14. Highway 416 isn't the Queensway... it's the Veteran's Memorial Highway... Fallowfield doesn't link to the Queensway (Highway 417) directly. I do confirm the 12-12-12 signals, though. Drove down Fallowfield a few days ago and saw them. The one on Richmond eastbound at Golden also is weird for me because it has a border/backing to it, unlike other 12-12-8-12 combo lights in the city. The signal at Carling westbound at Holland, for example, has no border/backing on it. What's the difference between this intersection (Rideau at King Edward) and Richmond at Churchill, for example, or the delayed signals on Laurier W at Bank?
