  1. Well, I guess now its confirmed. Last noights Planning and Works Commitee was updated by Grandlinq. Ion has once again been delayed till April or May citing difficulties with Bombardier. I feel for the folks who are employees of Keolis and thos who are waiting for this thing to get going for their jobs to start.
  2. They are not discontinuing service to the area at all. They are adding 15 minute service and alternating a bit of an express service between Pioneer and Doon
  3. https://www.facebook.com/pg/Keolis.Canada/jobs/2058183834420200/?source=post_homepage_stream Keolis is now hiring for Operators if anyone is interested.
  4. The ION branded bus should not be used on the iXPRESS routes. They should only be used on the Cambridge only routes to get the residence used to seeing the buses.
  5. As some one on the inside, we are in dire need of P/T Operators. We usually run out of availability near the end of the week. I don't think that I have heard of some one not getting full or part of thier hours in every week. Also GRT pays their P/T Operators fopr 32 hour what it would take other jobs 40+ hrs a week to earn. Just an added thought.
  6. Please, don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel.
  7. All employers check the Facebook and other social media of potential hires these days. It gives more of a real picture of who the person is. Most periodically re-check as well.
  8. Not 20... but I think ythe number was 6 for each model of bus to figure out the best placement. All should be installed by September. With an October roll out for the new fare media.
  9. This is a true statement. As of last week Voyageur has been awarded the bus plus contract, including the new 77.
  10. Actually for now the 20 will still be servicing that stop. There is some discussion about it's effectivness due to it's location.
  11. GRT is not planning any real expansion this year because Conestoga College turned down the u-pass program. The cut-away being used on the 77 belongs to Voyaguer and is contracted, for now, to operate the 77. You may not see any new buses this year. Even though there are rumours of a 2016 in the air they are not true, there are not 2016 buses on property.
  12. Info about the new proposed Waterloo GRT facilities The PCC will be held February 24, 2016 - 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in Room 202, at the RIM Park Manulife Sportsplex, 2001 University Avenue East, Waterloo. I have a picture of the preliminary preferred design, but I can't seem to upload it at this point.
  13. Cambridge gets all Novas to make it easier for Fleet to repair them. There is more room for parts from different kinds of buses in the new Chandler garage than there is in the Conestoga garage. So Cambridge gets the same make of bus to make it easier for them to store more high use parts than if there were many different kinds of buses. It really is that simple.
  14. The last I saw we had 5 of the expansion New Flyers in the North Barn
  15. We have about 5 of them so far.
