  1. A couple of things for you guys to look at. https://www.barrie.ca/Living/Getting Around/BarrieTransit/Documents/Barrie Transit System Map - Effective August 25 2019.pdf New route map, effective August 25th, 2019. https://www.barrie.ca/Living/Getting Around/BarrieTransit/Documents/Stop Optimization Project (Phase I) Notices.pdf Bus stop optimisation project. East of Downtown.
  2. They brought a Colltrans bus to a school somewhere around there to demonstrate transit buses to kids (per Sinton-Landmark's Facebook page years ago). Colltrans has a couple XD40s not getting used. Think it'd work out better for Meaford if they made a deal with Collingwood or LINX to run a bus from Collingwood to there and have a transfer point downtown or at the greyhound agent, whichever works best, where transfers can be made. Run it every hour or two with one of the XD40s or something else, like another Enviro 200 35-footer.
  3. https://www.collingwoodtoday.ca/local-news/soon-you-can-ride-the-bus-from-collingwood-to-barrie-with-one-transfer-1378888?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook&fbclid=IwAR2P1SG4ycm6rtPH_pbUnyLqzSJFws33hQiXMJyUhdJJv-3z2_1dgbPVPX8 Latest news on LINX. I have to say, while the service is needed, the terminal planning could've been better. Orillia's route is only gonna run from Lakehead to RVH, which doesn't help people who actually live in Orillia who would need to take two Orillia Transit buses to get to it from most parts of the city, and then to get elsewhere into Barrie requires a two or three-bus journey on our clusterfuck of a system. Collingwood would've just been better off if it didn't require a transfer in the middle of nowhere on the outskirts of Wasaga to get to, it'd be best if it just went to Collingwood on one bus. However, the Barrie end of the route is decent as it ends at Allandale Station, which is central enough and will be getting improved soon. Having the Orillia and Midland LINX routes terminating at say the Downtown Barrie Terminal instead of RVH, would mean a 5 minute transfer along Bradford Street at the most between the two routes on the most frequent section of the current Barrie Transit network, while if we had the Barrie to Orillia route running to Downtown Orillia, it'd make the lives of Orillia travellers easier as they wouldn't have to take two buses across the city to get to it, they could just go Downtown on any bus.
  4. Is it still on the 4 right now? I might track it on the computer and get my pics of it at my crossing.
  5. There's at least one other 2018 Arboc on the road now, 1831. I saw it but couldn't get pics as I was in a car.
  6. https://barrie.ctvnews.ca/making-voting-more-convenient-in-simcoe-county-1.4118545 Nova 1712 is gonna be a mobile polling station for the City elections.
  7. Over the last month I've been riding LINX with friends. A driver told us a week ago that the buses for Collingwood and Orillia have already been ordered and the routes are planned to go online next year. LINX is also listed as a partner along with Barrie for the 9M bus category on the Metrolinx website, so chances are we may be getting Enviro 200s as well.
  8. Can-Ar runs two cross-country routes out of there, IIRC one heads north to Lindsay and Haliburton County and the other heads northwest towards Kincardine.
  9. I had a meeting with the County about this back in July, and from what they told me they do plan to eventually have a central hub in Barrie and will move Route 1 there when that happens, probably when Routes 2 and 3 come online.
  10. Here's my video of the first day. Myself and another member rode the entire route, then bus-hopped between Midland and Wyebridge thanks to convenient timing where the southbound stops in Wyebridge 5 minutes before the northbound. More videos are in the pipeline.
  11. Hopefully it's not too off-topic, but has anybody seen that Arboc for sale at Loan Arranger on Innisfil Street? I wonder where it originally came from and who operated it previously?
  12. Barrie Transit 66804, 2004 New Flyer D40LF. Rebuilt Summer 2017.
  13. 1709's back on the road. Saw it tonight doing the 4 at Barrie South. No pics yet, but I intend to get some soon.
  14. https://www.kijiji.ca/v-heavy-trucks/owen-sound/transit-bus/1332920513?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true Looks like Bruce Peninusula's selling some buses. There's an MCI G-coach listed on there out of Owen Sound as well that I think I recognise.
  15. http://www.clearview.ca/transit Looks like their G5 has arrived and is in service, a monster on a Ford chassis, most likely powered by that monstrum V10. Also, while we're at it, here's my picture of Clearview's bus on Weir Street in Stayner back in August, 2017 when I made a road trip around the county with a fellow member and another friend. I believe this is probably the only pic from the fan community of the Clearview bus actually within her home municipality instead of Wasaga Beach.
