    That hill just past Main, on Bailey is the worst in a snowstorm.

    Drivers *should* be able (like the NFTA) to enact a reasonable change if necessary. I can't recall how many times I've heard NFTA drivers getting stuck on the Thruway when they *could* have easily taken William Street straight into Downtown. Had a driver get the chance to call it in and get the okay one time, and we lost a matter of TWO minutes. Whoop, right?

    I don't view it much as trouble, but more as a delay. It may have been announced due to a recent incident. Hope your professors cut some slack for late students today.

    Traffic is bad everywhere in the area this morning. The bus in from Alden was over ten minutes off schedule, due to icy conditions. My ten minute drive to the stop this morning was over twenty minutes. Best reminders for those in the area, is to bundle up and hope for the best! Am sure they're trying their best, considering the conditions.

    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.
