    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    Great shots! Just waiting for every girl that passes through that tunnel to take Boomerangs of the public art at uOttawa Station now, ugh.

    LRT Spotting

    Some couples training going on today, at least around the noon hour. Making sure both work together smoothly to ensure everyone's happy, even if one has to pull more of the weight at times. I'm talking about 1128 and 1129, by the way.

    That was said about the communications-based train control. That obviously needs to be 100 per cent, since it's one of the system's hallmarks.

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    Really not a fan of the changes to the 11 and 106. A lot of the ridership on the 11 is from a challenging demographic. From my experience, there was lots of ridership on the 11 that went east and west of the Lincoln Fields mall and station, and this cut to their service will make life difficult for them. Then there's the loss of the connection to the Rideau Centre. I fail to see why passengers should be forced to ride the light rail one stop to a major trip generator. If the Rideau Centre was an insignificant trip generator for the 11, I'd understand, but it's not the case. What about the 106? Why not just wait until the train does open to create the larger route 55? Although I imagine it's one way to encourage ridership to shift east to use Elmvale and St-Laurent as hubs. Biggest loss would be for any ridership that currently transfers between the 106 and the 9 and 42. OC Transpo seems to think everything will be centred around the train, but there's so much more away from it.

    Damn. Not a good month for 4288. It was involved in a collision on the Mackenzie King Bridge on Canada Day, too.

    Add 6401 to the list of buses with its destination signs still in capital letters for routes 85 and up. Well, I mean, there's no list, but you get the idea.

    Intention is the correct word.

    Probably soon. R1 and R2 are to be the replacement routes for the O-Train. Signs and route patterns for R2 have been uploaded to the TCH with the most recent update.

    Misc. OC Transpo & STO Questions & Discussion

    I didn't say they are Multi Cards. Those cards are simply read and activated as "valid" with an expiry date, and can be tapped multiple times. I believe the anti-pass back feature is programmed through the reader and not the card itself.

    2019 Nova LFS Order

    More likely in a way that will fit OC Transpo's desire to have as many seated passengers as possible.

    It's a replacement for the stop that was at Greenbank and Iris, by the on-ramp. That's not what an oxymoron is. It's a replacement for the stop previously located on the on-ramp. Granted, I'm hoping it will soon be removed, too.

    Not feeling too hot about the 256 having to service the on-ramp bus stop at Greenbank and the 417.

    Effective Monday 23 July 2018, morning service on the 256 will be modified to service Holly Acres and the Transitway. The route will now service Holly Acres/Richmond, Bayshore Station, and Pinecrest Station (AM off only), and service will be removed from the service stop at Richmond/Nanaimo, and from the 417 between Richmond and Greenbank roads.
