    TTC Application Process

    If nothing is found, then usually by regular mail. If they do find something, then they usually "hand" deliver it 🤣

    Gas Prices

    1.34/L here where I live. Thankfully, I can just hop across the border and fuel up for 0.87/L as the gas station is only 15 min away.

    DRT Employment

    Ok, seriously then, WTF in regards to the last bit with the collective agreement? 🤣 I would be so lost if I had to get a new job these days. Hiring used to be such a simple process. Company needed new drivers, you applied, they hired you, done and done LOL!

    Let's get something clear here. You are not a moderator. If you'd like to tell people how they should post, then I strongly suggest you apply for the position. Also, the context of the post you seem to have such an issue with because it is "one word", is a complete answer to the question therefore more than adequate. May I offer you the suggestion of contacting the mods to have a post removed if it bothers you so much?

  13. Just thought I'd start a thread for those who have some pics of trains they'd like to share. Nothing fancy, nothing technical (unless you want to of course ), just some nice pics of choo-choo's Kettle Valley Railway ... Deutsche Bahn ICE3 @ Cologne Hauptbahnhof ... More pics of Cologne Hauptbahnhof ... Nederlandse Spoorwegen VIRM Regiorunner @ Amsterdam CS ...

    Life After Greyhound

    They held up pretty good, probably better than the Prevosts and Setras. I preferred the older D series tho, as harsh as the ride was on those, they seemed a bit more robust and better suited for the mud and gravel.

    Christmas Loot 2018 What did you get?

    The shoes are called 'Air Jordans' and apparently their cool. Suggest the thread title gets changed to "Christmas Loot 1984" 😂
  20. The thing with a trolley system is that it relies on two components, the vehicle and the overhead. A problem with either component can cripple an entire system, stranding passengers. Just like yesterday in Vancouver: https://www.straight.com/news/1179366/bus-delays-vancouver-due-downed-trolley-lines-granville-street Diesels, hybrids, EVs only have to rely on the vehicle itself, can be rerouted on a dime if required, trolleys simply cannot. Diesels, hybrids, EVs are self sufficient, the only costs involved are for the vehicle themselves, trolleys require extra costs involved in maintaining the overhead system. Trolley buses running on EPUs have very limited range (and air pressure), the only answer is to install bigger and better batteries and then it gets to the point where batteries are good enough to get around town and don't require any overhead components so the argument for a trolley is nil and void. EV buses with express chargers located around in town is the future of green public transportation. Express chargers aren't prone to frost, poles getting tangled in them, branches falling on them nor can they cause a whole system to be crippled.
  21. Would it please be possible to disable the merging of posts feature when you post to a topic? For example, I wanted to quote another users post and reply to it and then post a different topic related to the thread on its on - but every time I keep posting the second topic - it merges that with my previous post which is completely unrelated. Its very frustrating and makes posts disorganized and cluttered.
  22. I've heard that they'll do the panel and road test on the same day and then the uniform fitting and documentation signing on the same day, but the initial video test and medical are each done on separate days.
  23. Knowing people that have gone thru it over the last couple of years, they've had mixed experiences. Some people did their panel and road test the same day and got an offer the next, others have had to wait days, weeks or even months. One person had the whole process done within a couple of weeks, others took 8 months and everything in between. Seeing you've gone through your panel interview, you should be hearing from them either way. Being the end of the year and the last classes of the year are scheduled, it could just be a scheduling thing.
