  1. I'm currently working on a computer program that simulates operation of a Luminator controller. I have all the current codes, but does anyone have codes for the routes that were discontinued (51, 64, 72, 76, 84, 86, 94, 99 and the 100s) or significantly altered (29, 68) when Phase 2 opened?
  2. It looks like the city wants to repurpose some federal funding that had been earmarked for Transit so that it can be used to finance other projects. http://clkapps.winnipeg.ca/dmis/ViewPdf.asp?SectionId=574700&isMobile=yes This is the sort of financial mismanagement that will inevitably lead to WT finding itself short on funds for another year and cutting service even deeper than they did at the start of the month.
  3. It was a similar story with the Spirits prior to their discontinuation. “Balmoral Station” was blank because the 1 and 2 stopped at 10846 and 10845, respectively, rather than 10831, and on the 2, “Garry & Broadway” was blank due to 10828 being discontinued and the 2 moving to 10589. I carry a flip phone (if I carry one at all), so using apps is not an option for me. I found the printed schedules helpful for the few occasions where I didn’t have a plan, but now, my only options are TeleBUS if I have a phone with me, and waiting and seeing what comes and when if I don’t.
  4. I went to Millennium Library this afternoon in search of paper timetables and the rack was empty. Looking at news articles from November, it seems as though they’re gone for good. A non-COVID-related cost-cutting measure.
  5. I checked SaskTenders not even five minutes before making that last post and the status of the competition was still “closed,” rather than “awarded.” My guess is whoever posted that made the assumption based on the fact that Regina hasn’t bought from NFI in years.
  6. The tender still hasn’t been awarded.
  7. Could someone move routes 1, 2 and 3 to “former routes” and remove the “Downtown Spirit” category on this template?
  8. That article mentions that the more significant cuts would be made in 2021, but here we are in September 2020, and the Spirits have been cut. Which I’d say is pretty significant. I wonder how much longer the DARTs have - they survived this round of cuts but consistently find themselves on the chopping block.
  9. Seems there’s a new one everyday these days. 423 on 45.
  10. Rode 939 on 83-3 this morning. First D30LF I’ve ridden on that route in years and it was an orange one.
  11. Rode 410 on the 98 this afternoon. Still had the new bus smell. While on board, I noticed that the next-stop display was in a weird font and it didn’t show the time at all - it went from one stop to the next. As well, the exterior speakers didn’t announce the route number or destination, only “Please practice social distancing when riding Winnipeg Transit buses.”
  12. 421 entered service on August 27, 2020 on Route 67.
