  1. I would imagine that more visible law enforcement presence would help. People act out more when they think they will face no consequences. Of course it won't eliminate all the riff-raff, but it may cause people to think twice before doing their unsavoury activity.
  2. Overhead problem at St. Clair West Station since at least the early afternoon; initially they were turning streetcars back west at Oakwood loop and cars east of it were stranded, pantos down. Buses were running the entire length of the route it appeared (Signs said Keele and St Clair Stn). Later in the day the TTC stated that streetcars have been removed altogether from the route and were running shuttles while repairs were being done over the rest of the day. 33/90/126 looping via local streets, shuttles serving street level stops at SCW. Photo is of stranded 4578 around 2 PM.
  3. There is also the fact that many riders especially those who have alternative options, may opt to not ride like sardines again, at least for a while.
  4. I was picturing that north of Pioneer Village, only one train will be moving at a time, and only on the SB track.. So one train dwells on the VMC platform, and once the next train pulls into the other platform the dwelling train will depart southbound. I don't travel that stretch so I don't know about the regular travel times.
  5. Interesting, single track operation during maintenance, instead of an early closure. http://ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Subway_closures/Apr_27-30_VMC-Pioneer_Village.jsp
  6. That has been happening since the first day of ATC being extended to Queen. I've also noticed something similar at NB St Clair West in the recent couple of weeks, if the preceding train had gone into the centre track (even if a few mins ago). Otherwise it's a normal smooth stop.
  7. Technically not allowed, since the transfer is supposed to be obtained when and where you had paid your fare. But of course, the machine is just sitting there available for use. Not valid for re-entry into subway system refers to not going through the station's fare line using the transfer ie) Showing the collector
  8. For something that is given with each Presto fare payment, reliable information about the two-hour transfer within the company is severely lacking... still. The ambiguously worded answers don't help either. https://twitter.com/MetroManTO/status/1233911063667605504?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1233914619250511874&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redditmedia.com%2Fmediaembed%2Ffbokrk%3Fresponsive%3Dtrue%26is_nightmode%3Dfalse
  9. Apparently the turn from King to Sumach is still causing noise issues... and noise mitigation mods are only in place on 10 cars https://www.cp24.com/news/noise-from-504a-cherry-streetcar-has-become-unbearable-for-some-corktown-residents-wong-tam-1.4826624
  10. I did state the TTC does indeed say when GO protocol is in effect. However in my experience it is rarely broadcast over the PA- especially in enough detail, which is what I assume you are referring to. In other news, apparently there have been two instances where dewirements have led to a trolley shoe being flung into a seniors home dining room adjacent to Roncy. A TTC streetcar catapulted a metal part through a seniors-home window in January. It wasn’t the first time
  11. So with GO protocol during service suspensions, it's pretty much decided on the fly which stations are included in the protocol, and can change (not too customer friendly). So you need to have a smartphone to catch the updates, or be at a subway station to read the station's screens for the service alerts which hopefully would say. Don't be caught riding past the designated stations or you will be considered to not have valid proof of payment. As the others have said, the proper procedure is to have tapped on the TTC wherever, and board the GO Train without tapping. If you haven't tapped yet as you were going to enter the subway station from the street, just tap the reader at the fare line, turn around and head to the adjoining GO station and don't tap there. The fare inspector checking you will see a TTC tap and as long as you're riding within the designated stations (again, arbitrarily decided on the fly), you're good. This procedure is also not posted anywhere or communicated to the public, and the only way I learned of this recently was scouring Twitter...
  12. BUT - Employees, post sec students (who I believe also activate the concession beep and yellow light), and seniors which look good for their age can look like "adults"
  13. From a photo on this CP24 article, looks to involve one of the converted T1 work cars. I think the photo shows it on the crossover east of the platform (NB platform to SB mainline), but I'm not 100% sure. https://www.cp24.com/news/subway-service-fully-resumes-on-line-1-after-complex-train-derailment-1.4809825 EDIT: Looks to be, from the photo on this CBC article; the elevator is at the east end of the station. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/no-subway-service-between-st-clair-west-and-st-andrew-stations-ttc-says-1.5462195?fbclid=IwAR3tiG4n5y69DhlINhunIp2pB1BqJbjzui_Lwb4jtvLntAQyBOxOq2EIoLs
  14. Somewhat, there's a good turnover at the station, but there is a good amount who still stay on. It's quite a bit busier south of the station though.
  15. From what I remember, policy with C's before was that a coupled disabled car must be pulled behind the operational car descending the Bathurst Hill, with the position swap being done using the former spare track at St. Clair West loop; is this no longer the case with Flexities?
