  1. TTC 8458 on 905A Eglinton East Express (yes, they've finally updated the destination signs to show 905A vs. the previous 905).
  2. That map is wrong. The 174 goes down the streetcar ROW into the loop and shares the 511 stop in the loop.
  3. Visual Sighting TTC 1379 on 174 Ontario Place-Exhibition I was driving in the area, so I wasn't able to get a picture.
  4. Hmm...I recall seeing these on other Orion OGs a few years ago (including some of the EGRs) before I learned of this discussion board, but I could be wrong?
  5. I've spotted a number of close calls (ie. drivers who make it onto the track and are able to back-up, and drivers who realize at the last second and swerve dangerously to avoid), namely at both north & south DVP off-ramp intersections, and the intersection at Leslie St. The DVP occurrences are of drivers trying to make the light and making too tight of a left turn.
  6. TTC 3422 with a half wrap for Magnolia Network.
  7. I saw 8639 and noticed it has the old Ontario logo on it instead of the new one 8622 has.
  8. A bit of a mess on Line 1 this morning. No service between St. Clair & Lawrence due to mechanical issues. Shuttle buses running. At the same time, Yonge St. is closed in both directions between Eglinton and Broadway due to a 2-alarm fire at Yonge & Roehampton.
  9. Visual Sightings TTC 3173, 3278, and 3168 on 34 Eglinton East this evening.
  10. I had a chance to ride that bus in the summer, and yup, not comfortable at all. It also posed a little bit of a safety hazard on my ride. I had a driver who liked to make turns at high speeds, and while it's normal for someone to lose balance and fall over their seat, it's a lot easier for someone to slip off their seat with these plastic surfaces - as is what happened to me. Not only that, but that same driver I had also liked to brake hard, and it was easy for me to slide forward off my seat. I could've grounded myself a little better had these been fabric seats as there's more friction between me/my clothes and the fabric surface of the seat vs. the plastic surface on these seats. Any who, I noticed there were survey QR codes posted on the interior ad rack in this bus, so I filled one out and submitted my negative review about these seats.
  11. TTC 9239 spotted today with mirror turn signal indicators. I wonder why these weren’t included on the recent Nova LFS buses that were rebuilt?
  12. First of all: *They're Second of all: Maybe click on the link and read what it says there, and then edit your comment afterwards.
  13. If I'm not mistaken, isn't this because the New Flyer hybrids can be converted into fully electric buses later on, similar to that of the buses MiWay received recently? https://www.mississauga.ca/miway-transit/announcements/new-hybrid-electric-buses/
  14. I spotted it today on the 54 Lawrence East, but I was unable to take a photo as I was driving. There is one noticeable difference on the rear: They’ve replaced the old supposedly “three guys in a hot-tub” -looking Ontario logo with the new logo that’s been around for a while now (see screenshot for logo comparison).
  15. Visual Sighting Recently rebuilt TTC 8622 on 54 Lawrence East
  16. Spotted what would’ve been the West Rouge Automated Shuttle stop at Rouge Hill Go Station Also spotted this at another would-have-been stop:
  17. So, I was on 3735 today on the 941 Keele Express, and noticed it was making an unusually loud sound. Edit (April 1) Upon reviewing the two videos I hyperlinked yesterday, it doesn't seem as loud in the video as it was in-person. The sound I was referring to was the buzz sound that sounds like a a bad sports car exhaust. When I first heard the sound, I thought a sports car was driving by, but in reality it was actually the bus (sorry, I'm having a hard time explaining the sound). Anyways, I'm bringing this up because this sound seemed abnormal compared to other Proterra buses I've been on in the past (last most recent time was 5 months ago in November). Compared to the other e-buses (New Flyer & BYD) which I've been on more frequently and recently, the Proterra buses in general are louder. I'm curious to know what the unusual sound is, so if you know, I'd love to read your response! Thanks in advance!
  18. Not sure if anyone cares for partial/half wraps anymore, but… TTC 3643 partial wrap for Roku, and directly behind it was TTC 1235 with a partial wrap for CBC, both spotted on 85A Shepard East.
  19. Unfortunately, another TTC operator was assaulted last night by a group of people under the age of 18. A reason for the assault is not mentioned in the article. I hope the operator is able to make a speedy recovery. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2022/03/20/toronto-ttc-assault-sheppard-station/
  20. Oh whoops! I should’ve read the post more carefully. Thanks for clearing that up
  21. Actually the provincial mask mandate is still in place for public transit, long-term care homes, hospitals, and a small handful of other high-risk settings.
  22. Regarding passengers not blocking rear door operations inside: In searching for that video of the MTA buses with sliding rear doors, I noticed some of the other buses with inward opening doors had yellow markings on the floor to show where the doors open to (triangle markings that basically follow the path of the opening doors). Think this may help if the TTC had the same? I haven't taken the bus since February 2020 (not cause of the pandemic, but rather because I got a car around that time) so I don't know if blocking rear doors is still an issue. I personally don't think it should be an issue anymore considering these buses have been around for a while now, but what do I know!
  23. Think you meant to say XDE40, as I couldn't find one for the XE40. Found one for the XDE40:
