  1. It’s called GO Logic, they have the knowledge to run a good transit system, they just don’t know how to use it
  2. I remember with the CLRV’s for the longest time one was tracking in the middle of Lake Ontario
  3. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/woman-lit-on-fire-kipling-station-dead-1.6511371 CBC now reporting that she has died
  4. https://www.cp24.com/news/an-incredibly-ill-advised-stunt-ttc-probing-video-showing-two-males-train-surfing-in-scarborough-1.5973275 looks like some idiots wanted to play Subway Surfers in real life on Canada day on Line 3
  5. It seems like they still might be, 4/6 cars on 59 last Saturday were refurbished. Although 1 of the cars had the old red seats. I couldn’t tell if the other one had old seats as well
  6. I heard 1/5 of LRC’s are out of service and unlikely to return because of their condition and Via has had to canabalize a few to keep the rest of the fleet running. There have been equipment swaps recently, on Saturday I was on Via 59 and the scheduled LRC’s were swapped for HEP’s. I wonder if this will see the return of Renaissance equipment west of Ottawa.
  7. 6113 is in a wrap for Pride
  8. Does anyone know of a recent speed increase on the Kingston Sub between Guildwood and the Durham/Toronto border? I was on it today and it seems faster along there than it did in the past.
  9. This looks like it is on the Galt Sub crossing of the Humber River
  10. Indigo has it as well, I got mine from there today, it’s really good
  11. Scratch it again 7122 was on 915 earlier
  12. By luck I saw one on the Belleville sub at a park in Whitby once
  13. I've seen up to 6119 in service, saw it today on the 915.
  14. Can someone correct me if I’m wrong but once the LSE extension to Bomanville opens that would be the first passenger service east of Agincourt Yard on the Belleville sub since the mid-1960’s I think
  15. There’s some on Adelaide around University as well
  16. They won’t be retired until the bridge near St. Mary’s on the Guelph Sub is upgraded. The MP40’s/54’s are allegedly too heavy. So GO is restricted to F59’s and 6 car trains
  17. Does anyone know when Renaissance service west of Ottawa was cut? I swear I remember seeing them in Oshawa in like 2009/2010
  18. https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.6412201
  19. It’s probably because that election season is right around the corner
  20. https://news.ontario.ca/en/advisory/1001863/premier-ford-to-break-ground-for-the-ontario-line Ontario Line groundbreaking to happen today (3/27/2022)
  21. https://www.blogto.com/city/2022/03/ttc-driver-hero-bus-saves-man-life/ Despite all the bad stories about TTC operators being assaulted, here’s a story about an operator preventing a possible suicide attempt
  22. Any redeliveries might take longer now. CPR has issued a lockout notice to its employees to take effect at midnight Sunday
  23. https://www.blogto.com/city/2022/03/toronto-ttc-transfer-56-years-ago/ Even though I don’t really trust BlogTO for accurate reporting, this is… interesting
  24. https://www.blogto.com/city/2022/02/contactless-debit-credit-card-payment-toronto-transit-ttc/ it seems like they’re having a go at this again
  25. Any news on new/updated routes ie: 915 being converted to Pulse?
