  1. The init system in general os really out of date to begin with. Crystals pronunciations are just terrible at times and very robotic. Yrt needs to invest in new software that better mimics the natural human voice
  2. anyone have anymore updates on the 17xx series of buses? which of these have arrived so far?
  3. It's kind of a shame that via brushes off these delays especially the ones that are less than an hour as if it's business as usual. I just wrapped up my trip in Japan and man all the trains are on the minute and the rare delays with the local lines are explained immediately. The shinkansen is always on time despite travelling at over 300km/h with multiple different trains weaving around it. At one point 4 trains stopping at different stations and frequencies were separated by only 12 minutes. That's the Japanese. I only hope our service standards will begin to approach theirs soon
  4. i also noticed that they plan to have cornell open sometime early next year....have they started building yet? They need to dig NOW if they are to meet their target date
  5. IMO i dont really mind stop announcements for every stop....but for the love of god please replace crystal on YRT/VIVA!!! its robotic butchery of street names is just agonizing....please yrt update the software...
  6. Yea.....we would be delighted if you can provide us with your rendering and how much more superior it is to the ops job. Really, show some class and actually be a bit grateful that someone actually took their time to visualize something out. To most people it's decent enough until someone actually sits down for a few hours to round off the edges. Please don't make this forum toxic. It's already bad enough at Urban Toronto with armchair politicians and urban planners claiming to know everything
  7. IMO its more because of annoying crystal than the message itself. YRT should seriously consider updating the voice itself being over 10 years old. Not to mention some of the messages really need to be truncated to be more clear and concise They are using a gen 1 voice tech that was quickly surpassed by what TTC uses, which sounds worlds more natural. I think that would be a more prudent investment than needlessly adding more viva routes that are half full at best
  8. That's what Ttc love to do Test test and more tests until they are beyond sure lol
  9. well congrats to YRT and the contractors for finishing 2 days (albeit 1 years behind the original estimate) early now if TTC can keep their schedules........
  10. wow so NFI is trying to monopolize the industry here.... Just like Luminator has bought up twin vision axion and others
  11. that window does strike as a little odd because its frameless unlike the other ones. (im sure they couldve gotten it to match the others) could it be that they changed to framed windows mid production or they took another order that had it?
  12. Rimless windows I presume are an expensive option It's probably why it was exercised for the xcelsior order as well Then again yrt to them can't be as premium looking as viva
  13. Nope The military pension is a federal government program. It's transferable if you're switching to the rcmp or other federal branches
  14. was hoping that they would've taken the opportunity to repaint it to look more like the new cars...then again if the hope is to have them only as a stop gap measure until production ramps up probably wont be really worth it
  15. wow already....what happened??!
