    yes I've heard good things about Martin Ward and that a few drivers have fallen foul of him for things like having personal radios playing though not all drivers seem to be getting the message. Don't know what the outcome was about the transit discussion by council last night. Nothing on jumps out on the examainers's site apart from transit relating to the new housing development over in east city (and with 700 homes going in there it would make sense to transit service).

    Though surely this work should have started earlier following the 2012 transit review. Is taking 5 years to get it rolling due to the city and the money or is yet another case of the wheels of transit management spinning backwards.

    What are they doing on stops that serve both regular transit routes and Trent or Flemming services or is just where a stop might be mistake for a regular transit when it's only served by a Trent or Flemming bus?

    they'd better get in quick while the provnice is handing out the money. If ford cuts the gas tax that's a lot of money for transit that's not going to flow to municipalities.

    in a case of praise be to $deity, there's movement on the transit app front but there won't be anything on our devices until March next year. https://www.thepeterboroughexaminer.com/news-story/8629752-city-set-to-offer-new-transit-app-for-peterborough-bus-riders/ Seems city staff spent 2 years researching on the different types of apps that could be used here but I doubt there was any sort of hurry-up from the transit management.

    Are there still major mechincal issues with some of the buses given the frequency of delays due to bus problems?

    As to wheelchairs on the community bus, have heard that one person went to it but couldn't because his electric wheelchair wouldn't fit.

    talking with one of the van drivers and while the vehicle might have two wheelchair spaces by design, in the use it be effectively one space otherwise nobody will be able to get through. Oh and when they showed the bus on the news tonight - didn't appear to have any wheelchairs on board to show how they go,

    But not when you're the cutting out the hospital. Sure cutting one service would be reasonable but not both. I'm not disabled but I have used transit to get the hospital main entrance on occasions but glad I'm within walking distance. yeah if the community bus is on time and you're there when the services leave at 20 past the hour. I've had a look at the transit website and if they mention the route changes it's buried pretty deep - not under transit news or the section about the community bus. They should also remove to section about the federal tax credit since that ended last july (thanks justin & bill)

    And that's going to piss a lot of people off. Same as the Jackson Creek won't be going to in Hedonics while the community bus. I know of two person who are both visually impaired that will be directly impacted by this. The community bus is useless for them because it doesn't go to the bus station and getting the jackson creek becomes harder. Way to go Peterborough Transit. You're supposed to move forward with accessibility not go backwards.

    Then perhaps they should have scrapped the whole idea rather than spending the money on an unsuitable vehicle.

    Look at some pictures it pretty much confirms the rumours. It will only take two wheelchairs and if you've got two (there were supposed to be four) onboard it will be hard to for people to get by. Heads need to roll at transit for this stuff up.

    well there other terms but I think they would violate forum rules

    heard it was sitting outside last week and still hasn't had the Peterborough Transit decals etc added and yes was described as an overblown handivan.

    beat me to the punch or should that be post? Extra handivan will be good, fixing the inefficiencies and incompetence in the van office and management would improve things even more. I like the 20min peak services (it's good when I go out for the shopping) but will be interesting to see which routes get them this time around. Though jones would be in on the announcement today but seems to have been strangely absent (it was Vassiliadis who was interviewed by Chex).
