  1. Just a heads up, I have recieved an email from my recruiter informing me that due to the tighter lockdown imposed by the Ontario government the operator recruitment is on hold at the moment.
  2. I believe that the lock down won't affect anything , as the MTO still operating for commercial license, it will likely either by mid January or early February ( wishful thinking)
  3. Got you , sorry to hear that, but thankfully you are back
  4. Angi didn't you finish your training in March?
  5. Tbh we don't know anything, but I know that they have a lot of retirement this year, and the ridership might increase by March to at least 50-60% and may be more, you can't predict anything in the mean time
  6. Why would a s.way or st.car operator change to bus??
  7. From what I know, they have stationed security at 85 industry, some of the construction sites as well, they have two security vehicles running all eglinton line, one for the west side, and one for the east side, I don't know details. And I don't know whose the client is it mereolinx or the contractor!!
  8. They already have a security company taking care of their facilities
  9. Just opinion, even with those 25% decide not to take the ttc, when people come back to work, if the city wants to keep social distancing it will need more busses, more street cars, more subway cars, MORE OPERATORS, to keep the health and safety guidelines in effect. In UK the minister of transportation said that if we bring back the transit service level back ,and wexwant to keep heath and safety guidelines in effect only 15% of the riders will be allowed to use the transit service, which I agree One more thing, any plan to keep everyone on the transit to be safe won't be perfect, which will be very stressful and concerning for some operators, To be honest with you guys it's a big challenge for everyone
  10. That's true, but from what I know that they didn't laid off anyone yet Am not sure I would like to be optimistic, by increasing the ridership flow they will need more busses and operators to keep social distancing in effect And they know that to put a new trainee on the road it needs a month or may be more , on the other hand as the city starts to reopen, I think by the end of may to mid june 80-90 % of the businesses will be opened They will find themselves in a race with ti.e ro accommodate the demand Just brain storming with wishful thinking
  11. I like your point, it sounds logic, but the concern here is when.
