    NFTA-Metro

    Any news on if a Niagara Region Transit or Niagara Falls Transit bus came over to Buffalo? Could swear I had seen an Orion 7 with their markings laying over at Amtrak-Exchange Street Station a couple minutes ago when my bus entered the 190-South.

    Slightly off topic, but mentioning it, since it's just across the border from us. Sticking out: " Changes are coming to Welland transit — due in large to part to a 400 per cent increase in ridership of those using the system earlier in the day." Oh. My. God. I can only wish this for Buffalo. Welland recently reconfigured its nighttime services to reflect the same routing of the day service, from a two-route loop system after 6:00pm, and added entirely new Sunday services that were not offered recently. Good to see a major expansion with numbers that look so promising. https://www.stcatharinesstandard.ca/news-story/9072984-welland-transit-starting-engines-earlier-in-new-year/

    Just came across this on E-Bay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Route-3-Grant-Street-Bus-Railway-Sign-Buffalo-Metro-New-York-Sign/283199307142?hash=item41effe7d86:g:JtIAAOSwaY9bunTi:rk:3:pf:1&frcectupt=true A *little* outside my price range, but pretty cool to look at, regardless. Was this an actual sign from the International Railway, or possible pre-dating them? First I came across a stop sign of that style.

    Which numbers?

    Niagara Region Transit

    Just checked it out on the Welland Transit map/schedule. Does list them there in the 700-series. Slipped right on by me. Note: 200-series routes are assigned to evening and weekend services on Niagara Falls Transit. So...(thus far) 0##: Niagara Region Transit (all times) and regional routes by other agencies 1##: Niagara Falls Transit (Weekday/Saturday Daytime) 2##: Niagara Falls Transit (Weekday and Saturday Evening/Sunday) 3##: St. Catharines Transit (Weekday/Saturday Daytime) 4##: St. Catharines Transit (Weekday and Saturday Evening/Sunday) 5##: Welland Transit (all times, Weekday, Saturday and Sunday) 7##: Port Colborne Transit and Fort Erie Transit. In the grand scheme of things, I believe there is going to be a "dynamic" named shuttle between Port Colborne and Fort Erie, connecting the southern-most section of Niagara RM points. I have to look at a handout I have, it may be implemented around 2023-ish. There could also be another westerly reaching route, but don't have the info in front of me to properly quote it. Still not integrated:: Pelham Transit, Niagara-on-the-Lake Transit, Town of Lincoln Transit (uLinc) WEGO Visitor Transportation (although they may have 300-302 listed as their routes, internally (300-Red Line, 301-Blue Line and 302-Green Line). Also, though treated separately, GO Transit route 11 and 12 (AFAIK) don't have matching route numbers in the region. All in all, interesting changes.

    Niagara Region Transit

    The Fort Erie is #22, while Port Colborne is #25. NOTL has the Heritage Route as #1, and Glendale as #2. In all fairness, no route numbers are shared across Niagara unless you count ULinc routes 1 and 2, plus their number 3.

    Advertising boxes on site.

    Is there a problem with the advertising boxes that show up on the website? I used to see them near the bottom, and sometimes (rarely) the top of the articles. They're mixed within the article, and it doesn't look right. Counted no less than five this morning on the Nova Bus LFS article. Seems to be a little excessive (not throwing shade at the site, but if something is broken, allow you guys to notify the provider to get it fixed). Have screen caps if necessary to show.

    Can you explain exactly what the number scheme is, unpredictability? lol

    Primary corridor out of the city of Buffalo. Should be one of the first to be worked on, regardless of the funding.

    Hope that's not the reason the DOT's left Delaware in that shape for so long.

    The shame is that they're running the new Novas on Delaware and Colvin lines right now, where the road is in absolutely deplorable condition (on Delaware between North Street and the end of the S curves. Those lines deserve a bus with padded seats, due to the way that they hit those potholes. However, they hit Delaware with the Nova's and the 2400's frequently.

    With the reputation that the 9600-series had, I'm not surprised at all. With the one bus gone (due to a collission or accident) they seem to hold up really well. Even the shocks on them seem to rattle a lot less than the earlier (and later) Gilligs. If you notice too, they're on heavy use lines like the 12, 13, 23, 48 and 44. Many of those lines are at capacity or approaching through the majority of their trips.

    Noticed the clarity of the signage to be more pixels, creating a smoother read.

    Kind of like, now that I see everything together. The old DDOT logo though is iconic. Sad to see that go.
