  1. Question: is the operator of a bus supposed to be manually overriding back doors at every stop? The reason I ask is because I just got off the 88 Hurdman (the 4:02 pm trip from Terry Fox Station) and I noticed on several stops (including two consecutive) that the operator would let off passengers and then manually close the rear doors and drive off.

  3. Can you send the template over? Wouldn’t mind trying it out. Do you have any others? I remember one at Eagleson / Hazeldean Mall in Kanata until maybe 2015/2016 (not sure exactly when they changed it), until they changed the speeds to match the other lights in Ottawa.
  4. 8101 just got towed from Bayshore Station
  5. 4613 —> 57 Tunney's Pasture from Fitzgerald (the 16:22 trip), rode it home. First time being on one where I got a seat, lol.

  7. 6453 —> 62 Stittsville... rode it from Bayshore Stn at 5:50-ish pm to Campeau/Tanger and it seemed to struggle in low gears and only pick up speed in third. And right after I posted, transmission got stuck in 4th gear at the CTC... glad I’m only a few stops away.

  10. Just saw a D60LFR getting hooked up to a tow truck at Robertson/Mill Hill. Looks like 6484 but it’s hard to see.
  11. Same bus home too. Huh. 152 Moodie —> Holly Acres/Richmond at 4:34 pm
  12. 5176 --> 152 Lincoln Fields --> 8:20 am at Bayshore/Carling

  14. 6666 —> 97 Bells Corners at Queensway Carleton Hospital Emergency stop at 4:28 pm 5104 —> 152 Moodie at the same stop (opposite side of the road, though) at 4:29 pm
  15. This is at the stop on Baseline westbound at the Queensway Carleton Hospital... it should be 57 Bells Corners.
  16. I use Bus Buddy on iOS (and I have the official OC Transpo app too), and there isn't a way to see the full text of the type of bus being used... it doesn't even say DD, it shows a double decker icon.
  17. I thought the original order for the Nova LFS buses this year was to be 80 buses, but then was bumped up to 82 buses... could it be possible the two extra LFS buses are simply for growth?
  18. I thought the hybrid Orion VII buses were going before the rest of the Inveros? I mean, didn't OC Transpo just rebuild a bunch of Inveros? I hate the back door on the Inveros too, but they have more seats than both the Orion VII and LFS buses do... not saying I like the Inveros (that's about the only good thing about them, really...)
  19. That is Bayshore 3A. Speaking of Bayshore Station, the bus time display at stop 4B has been flickering for literally months... sometimes to the point of it being really hard to read the next trips...
  20. 5116 --> 152 Lincoln Fields @ 8:07 am this morning at Bayshore / Carling (my usual trip to work)… API reported it as a DD with no bike rack
  21. Yeah, that would do it. Almost an hour and a half for an express trip is a bit much... Just out of curiosity, does anybody know how often the OC Transpo real-time GPS API gets updated? The reason I'm asking is because of a significant number of issues currently (which I've mentioned but nobody at OC seemed to care or know how to fix). Routinely I see a hybrid appear in the API as a DD, or a DD with no bike rack, or a Nova appear as a DD... I really wish and hope they fix the issues, if they're even aware of them...
  22. 266 is for Kanata North (Innovation Station, Briarbrook, Morgan's Grant) as previously stated. It brings back true express service for the area, that was removed when express route 60 was combined with the 93, and then renumbered to the 63 we have now. 251 is for Bells Corners (replaces route 256 on Old Richmond, Robertson, Richmond, and Holly Acres)… not really sure why, though. Is there maybe an overcrowding on the 256 that warrants this change? Bells Corners has service on three connexion routes after this change... 251, 252, 256.
  23. 8073 —> 97 Bells Corners @ Fitzgerald/Robertson at 9:07 am
  24. The only other beacon(s) I knew about was(were) at Huntley and Fallowfield, and they're all red LEDs for the four-way stop signs. Does that mean both entrances to Carling Place along Moodie Dr are LED signals? I know the north entrance on Moodie was converted some time ago (with no countdowns, either), so you must be referring to the south entrance to Carling Place on Moodie?
  25. The flags on Fitzgerald Rd in Bells Corners have also been updated with routes 57 and 58, but only in the northbound direction. What's interesting is both the 58 Bells Corners and the 58 Lincoln Fields stop at the same stops on Fitzgerald, as buses will loop around Moodie, Robertson, and Fitzgerald as the 58 Bells Corners, and end at Fitzgerald / Moodie, before looping a second time as the 58 Lincoln Fields and proceeding north on Moodie. Would that mean that technically route 58 Lincoln Fields would be stopping at Fitzgerald / Moodie twice? Or would a stop on northbound Moodie at Menten (currently on the south side of Menten) possibly be moved to the north side of Menten to prevent this?
