    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    If it's just your money, I'm okay with it. Exactly what I said.

    It's an error that popped up when the 17 was changed to say "Parliament/Parlement" for next booking, and it has been reported. Bus stop flags indicate current service or an upcoming service change and don't reflect future service initiatives. You'll notice the stop flag at Montreal/Brittany is correct, though.

    The Confederation Line [Under Construction]

    I feel like area residents would find a bridge of that length unsightly. I'm going for a trench with a short tunnel from Knoxdale to West Hunt Club. The only development that would present a problem would be between Knoxdale and West Hunt Club. Otherwise, a large strip of unused land exists west of Woodroffe Avenue from where the Transitway curves to Knoxdale/Medhurst. Underpasses would exist at Tallwood and the existing underpass at the railway tracks will require widening. The rail would then enter a tunnel at Knoxdale (tunnel portal just north of Knoxdale?), then exit the tunnel south of the roadway south of West Hunt Club to rejoin the Transitway alignment. Stations added at Tallwood, Knoxdale, and (maybe) West Hunt Club would be in a trench similar to Tunney's Pasture Station to avoid the costs of fully underground stations.

    An oversight? Unbelievable! Transit Commissioner Blais will make sure it gets fixed, and whoever is accountable will be reprimanded, unless it's himself or city council, of course. 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄

    STO and OC Transpo Routes

    Three-car trains were also taken into account when the stations were being designed. The underground stations and Hurdman are already built for them, whereas the above-ground stations are, according to the project office, "easily expandable."

    As a more central end point, perhaps.

    OC Bus Spottings

    This is my new favourite sign. It changes between English and French without the "via South Keys" portion moving. Also, YELLOW CAR. *punches everyone*

    It's also on artics that have received the latest update (such as 6383). Some two-lined signs for the lower route numbers have also been updated to lower case.

    Is there more to your post that's missing?

    York Region Transit \ Viva

    The walk to the Wonderland gates will be at least 300 metres whichever service you use. From the terminal, it's along a sidewalk, but from Jane Street, it's through a very active parking lot. It also appears the weekend frequencies of the 20 and 760 are comparable, though the 760 does not run during the week.

    Runs change booking to booking, trips move around.

    Destination signs for routes 86 and up are being updated to the lower case font now. Spotted a few the last two days. Expect more in the coming weeks!

    The Trillium Line

    Why would a route that's many times longer overlay a shorter route following the exact same track? What about the section to Baseline?

    It's his thing.

    OC and STO service disruptions

    159, eh? Detours for this year remain mostly the same as previous years. The only change is the 11, which has been detoured via the Transitway, Scott, Bayview, and Bayswater in previous years. This year, the 11 will travel via Byron, Tyndall, the Queensway, Gladstone, and Bayswater.
