  1. Why would you even be surprised? TTC changes it's plans every 3 months. That's what the plan was last year. Every year, they put a different plan out. Voila, TTC's recommending hybrids again.
  2. MiWay

    Wow there is green grass. It's been a wasteland for too long.
  3. TTC NovaBus LFS Movement List

    This is not a movement. A movement is a bus being relocated to another garage and crewed from there. You usually can't tell without asking the operator or figure out where it went afterwards.
  4. Streetcar News

    It's only EB at Bathrust and WB at Jarvis that allows turns in both direction. All other intersections in between are right only. Not so much to change.
  5. I was told by a TTC operator that the Arrow novas were hybrids. Believe what you want guys.
  6. There is no place to put them
  7. You can see two rows, the 281 are paid for as bus replacement while 4 more is paid through the customer service initiative. Whoever wrote "To meet growing demand" is pretty dead wrong as only 4 of them are purchased for "To meet growing demand". In fact TTC haven't purchased much buses for service expansion lately, just 4 this year and 50 (8455-8504) in 2015. No big deal. Just to illustrate to some that think they're coming in too quickly. Apparently they aren't.
  8. Streetcar News

    Christmas parade! When all 10 are burnt in at the same time.
  9. Today's Special Sightings

    I believe they been saying MtD is going to get it first. If that's the case, no.
  10. The CEO report does mention Nova is 33 buses behind on the delivers as of end of September 2017 http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2017/November_13/Reports/1_Chief_Executive_Officer's_Report_November_2017_Update.pdf#page=74
  11. Today's Special Sightings

    Eglinton has a downtown gap bus that sits at Spadina Station I believe. It's sent onto streetcar routes as shuttles when needed.
  12. TTC NovaBus LFS Movement List

    That's cause buses aren't retiring at Queensway and the division is too small.
  13. Future TTC Bus Orders

    Probably no until an alternative is proven. I would really like to see the hybrid contact split 50/50 to rule out any manufacturer problems instead of technology problems.
  14. Future TTC Bus Orders

    More expensive buses are coming. The report supports buying up to 230 hybrids from either Nova or NFI and up to 30 electric from NFI, Proterra or BYD by spring 2019. http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Commission_reports_and_information/Commission_meetings/2017/November_13/Reports/4_Green_Bus_Technology__Plan.pdf Looks like the hybrid drought is ending.
  15. TTC Route interlines

    You need to separate your section into period interline (which means all runs of a run is interlined with another route during a certain period of time) and school runs (which have 1 or more runs interlined just for carrying students around). Here are a few, I''l try to complete the list later. School runs: 16 on 9 17 on 12 24 on 12 87 on 12 91 on 12 113 on 12 45 on 15 (2 runs) 111 on 15 112 on 15 9 on 20 45 on 46 191 on 46 Timer period interline 32 on 141 (PM rush) - both 141 pm rush runs are 32 Eglinton West run. If they are late to Eglinton Station, a standby bus takes over the trip Misc interline (just a run from a routing doing a trip(s) on other) 29 (77 run) on 7 - this run from the 29 Dufferin heads over to Bathurst in there afternoon and continues as the 7 for the rest if the day
