  1. Key by red signal, sometimes 2 red signals, happened everyday before the 1995 accident. A hot spot was Coxwell station when a train driver finished a shift, the new driver didn't show up on time so the train could stay in the platform for over 10 minutes. The driver in behind became impatient so he could begin to key by the first red signal in the first 2 minutes of waiting, then the second red signal and got closer to the tail end of Coxwell station until he found enough room for the first door of his car to open so the driver, the guard (came from the 5th car) and passengers on lead car could "escape".
  2. Before the 1995 subway accident, subway driving rules were there but in reality they were rather lenient in the daily operations, different drivers could have different driving habits. When there was a delay or something a driver could do high-rate operation but that mode was not turned off afterwards immediately so the train could remain in high-rate operation the following 1-2 days. I could still remember on the B-D line lead car 5746 was in a high-rate mode on a Sunday afternoon, 2 days later on Tuesday lead car 5746 was still running like that by a different driver during afternoon rush hours.
  3. Does anyone remember which 1975 GM buses (8010-8117) did receive black and yellow roll signs? Either from memory or online photos, I can think of these units: 8017, 8022, 8030, 8035, 8037, 8040, 8042, 8051, 8056, 8058, 8064, 8068, 8073, 8074, 8075, 8086, 8089, 8100, 8106, 8111, 8112. Any more?
  4. Ex GO 2281 with new plate 7384BJ was parked at a lot of a church near Warden and Steeles.

  8. It is also easier for people to walk in subway station without tapping card by activating sensors from inside or outside and the gate open, then infinite number of people (the most I have seen so far was 8 students) can walk through the gate. This simply is the management in the approval of the this kind of design of fare gate. And now the honest riders are paying the price of the mismanagement.
  9. Last Friday 3 ladies walked into Finch station bus platform, a special constable who was sitting in his car watching his phone at the moment saw them but did nothing.
  10. This afternoon WB 1652 (199B) had a full load of passengers and was running normally until another empty bus 1756 (199A) was fast approaching from behind, so 1652 (Express bus) made a stop north of Huntingwood to let 1756 to pass by first, apparently this upset the driver of 1756 as he had to pickup the load of passengers at McCowan & Finch, so he didn't move at that stop and when 1652 stopped in behind, the driver of 1756 gave a lecture to the driver of 1652 and that resulted a 5-minute delay.
  11. In addition to the above, 3009, 3012 and 3014 don't have functioning A/C, As the weather is getting cooler, I think the problem can be deferred to the next summer season.
  12. The same 1523 broke down at Finch station this evening.
