  1. Shouldn't you question the subway yards first? Think of those electric hungry TRs.
  2. It was taken down by 5:30am. There database is really slow. Perhaps it was just a test or an issue.
  3. If that bus only carries 5 riders per trip on O'Connor but a bus on Eglinton or Lawrence carries 30-50 riders during late evening. A 20 minute gap on those major route would inconvenient more rider than a missing bus on the 8.
  4. The 8 seems low priority if you ask me. Only a handful of stops won't be served if the bus is missing. Most would probably walk to to closes N/S bus stop or the 87 for more frequent service. This route would be on the chopping board if they are doing deep cuts, especially late hours.
  5. I haven't heard if they even started it yet but it is rush hour only. You won't catch one at 2pm according to the schedule https://www.toronto.ca/services-payments/streets-parking-transportation/transportation-projects/automated-vehicles/automated-vehicles-pilot-projects/automated-shuttle-trial/
  6. I’m pretty sure the 32+34 carries more than 15k today with bus ridership over 50%. The 15k would be riders per hour at max cap. They have more standing space with doors on both sides. TTC set their max to 130 so it’s not too far off. I really don’t like how everyone would cramp at the doors since there is barely any standing space between doors at the quad seats.
  7. Saw a TTC OG Hybrid on the 927 on Hwy 427. Tracker says its 1086.
  8. It’s always nice to know that she’s still supporting it.
  9. Nope. There's no artic bus bay by the elevators at Kipling nor does all trips need artics. Some of those offpeak runs are pretty empty themselves even with regular buses. They really don't need to widen the headways further. Look what happened to the 190->985A. 14 min to 21 min headway cause they claim artics are better!
  10. I would say most likely Mt Dennis. They'll loose most of the 32 Eg West runs. The more interesting 334 route could be split between 2 or even 3 divisions as it will operate from one end of the city to the other. Maybe Mt Dennis can take the 52 back but that's not so likely if they become a bigger artic division.
  11. So they break down and get sent to warranty since the mechanics don’t touch them till warranty ends. He’ll be left with his mind satisfied but no buses arriving at his stop.
  12. They have to balance the runs between division too. The 905 needs like 10+ buses while the 12D is like 3 would end up in the wrong place.
  13. The 46/927 used to be grouped together in the early days as it was seem as an express version of the 46. The 46 ran twice as frequent in the 1990s than today as riders have shifted to the 927, which didn't run frequent at all back then. As development occurred around the Woodbine Centre area and ridership rose in the industrial area around Belfield, each route developed it's own riders. It doesn't make sense to group them together anymore as 927 riders don't take the 46 just like they wouldn't take the 45. (BTW, the 46 does have it's own express, 46E school tripper from Martingrove CI to Kipling Station). The same thing can be said about the 509/510. They were grouped together since back in the day most riders from Union can take either one. Now people living at QQ/Bathurst accounts for significant ridership doesn't take the 510 nor does the 510 run regularly on QQ during summers with special events. The 116 and 905 now serve two different set of customers. 116 for local Eg East and Morningside while the 905 serves express riders on Eg East, Kingston Rd and UTSC students. The only overlap is the riders that can take either express or local on Eg East. The last ridership stats published in 2018 has a separate value for all routes. Even express and local on the same corridor. So this grouped thing is a thing in the past.
