  1. I saw it deadheading on the transitway but just my luck, it was in the opposite direction I was heading. I was unable to skip class to go to city hall to see it either.
  2. Sounds great! I was talking to a driver and he said he saw 5001 on a lift in the garage. They must be making some modifications or something or it has mysteriously broken down without going on the road yet
  3. I may enjoy being a standee, BUT I actually know how to stand
  4. Standees that suck at being standees that REFUSE to sit, even when there are seats available. They seem to rather fall than sit. >_<
  5. Im pretty sure you are right on this. This is why you'll see random 60 footers on locals or routes that don't need a 60 footer off of peak, yet a Sunday.
  6. This happened to me as well in June of this year.
  7. If you want to see lots of High Floor action. Best place to be is at Slater and Bronson at around 3pm. All the classics are deadheading to go start their routes or are starting their routes. Also, you could go by Pinecrest garage, although it is rather far. You will see lots of Classics and D40s on express routes. This require extra fare to ride though. Routes 98 and 43 for example both classics and D40s. Is anybody planning on taking a trip to Ottawa?
  8. I'm not discriminating about age. There is no age limit or minimum when you are an idiot. [Not you OC 8238:P]
  9. YOur camera quality makes me want to die, but never the less,nice pictures. That was fun today xD
  10. Not really once in a lifetime, I'll still be around for the 50th Not to be an ass, but its easier to understand if you say School and 3:30 lol.
  11. From this morning: Really crappy camera, but I tried.
  12. Same. I think they will have some mini model bus thing I saw outside the garage. Its about the size of a Go-Kart.

The Transitway has become a part of everyday life for thousands of Ottawa residents and offers commuters a faster, more reliable and convenient transportation option. The Transitway was North America’s first bus-based rapid transit system and in 2001 was awarded a Canadian Public Works Project of the Century. The advantages of a rapid transit system have had a direct impact on ridership, which is expected to surpass 100 million trips in 2009. Over the past 25 years, the Transitway has proven to be an innovative and affordable rapid transit solution, and has benefitted the community by attracting economic development along its corridor and connecting people across the city. Transitway Milestones between 1983 and 2008. I'll be going, free food!
