  1. The only GO Buses that I'm aware of that actual had washrooms on board where the MCI's they bought used from Woodlands California. I don't know if they where in use or not though?
  2. One simple answer $$$$$!! Everything comes down to $$$? Plain and simple.
  3. Interesting. Service seems to be in the GTA colleges/Universities? What about Ottawa & Kingston?
  4. Although not a death, would it be possible to post a pic of the celebrity who unfortunately passing away. Not all these individuals might not be known by their name but a photo might revise individuals on who they where.
  5. Well I received my copy of A Century Of Moving Toronto: 1921-2021. Although I've only briefly gone thru the book, all i can say is: WOW & BEAUTIFUL!!! One of the best books On The TTC!!! The book is large and has both color & Black White photo's. It's broken down by 10 year segements. From what I briefly saw it tells the story of Street Cars, Trolley buses/buses, subway and few other things. Now grant you I can't say where the pitures where taken as I breifly skimmed the book but says where they where taken at bottom of picture. Not being from the GTA so don't know where the places are. For a book that's $50 + shipping it's well worth the cost.The book itself appears to be well published & Layed out. I highly recommend this book to all transit fans especially to those in the GTA. A beautiful land scape of the TTC?
  6. So the PM states that to travel on A cruise ship leaving Canada, Traveling on VIA Rail or on any Air line within Canada to board you will need to be full vaccinated with some medical emptions by thend of OCT. So what about coach travel? PM didn't state anything about inter-city coach travel? Now grant you I'm not sure what inter-city coach companies policies are on the Covide-19 are, but I find it it interesting that the PM would not mention inter-city coach companies travel in his media statement. This is not the first the PM failed to mentioned coach travel as it didn't matter.
  7. If building a bus(regardless of manufactures)if they are having the same issues as car manufactures and other companies, then they'll be a delay in keeping a scheduled.
  8. I'm surprised they don't offer monthly passes? You would think a service like what they offer would offer different passes/month for different $$ based on where you want to travel? If I where GO/Prestro/Metrolinx I would offer a special Prestro Pass $500/month that would be Valid on all transit systems in the GTA,Hamilton,London. So basicaly from Ajax to London and far west as Barrie. Not from the GTA so don't know if that's all the transit systems in Southern Ontario or not?
  9. Is there not a monthly pass between Toronto & London?
  10. Here's some interesting facts on Greyhound & the Motor Coach Industry? Some intertesting facts I never new about Greyhound & the Industry? In the video it states about how Greyhound & the Industry could improve pasenger comfort. I'm not sure about all providers & routes, but I recall back in the 1990's at least on the Ottawa-Toronto Express runs they used to show movies and give out juicwa & either cookies or some type of snack before boarding. Not sure if Greyhound still does this in the US or any other provider in Canada or the US still does this or not. If the coach industry wants to truely compete with the private car, trains & Airlines they needto step up their on board experiences for customers. Some ideas, although this might cost them financially it step that it's possible to attract more business. Things like(all free to the passenger): 2+1 seating(wider seats IE either Train or airline seating style) more leg room return of movies on long trips 3+hours on board hostess with drinks(non-acholic to avoid drunk issues)like bottle water, coffee or soft drinks and other snacks. provide snacks, refreshments(non-alcohol to avoid drunk issues) juices, soft drinks before boarding free-WI FI(although this may be available presently all trips be provided by handi-cap coaches[made by law in both Canada & US](wheel-chair lifts)on all trips by all providers in the inter-city business, this way all those passengers with wheel chairs or other mobiliy needs know their scheduled coach and conacting trip will be accessible. In major cities(those that no longer have bus terminals)that providers & city officials provide one central pick up & drop off point where costs are shared between providers & city so customers not need to travekl accross town rto make a conection with another carrier. I know some may not be possible, but if they want to improve Inter-city coach service, providers & city/towns need to come together and help the industry against growing competion which is more popular. As for some of the items I've mentioned all you need to do see Inter-city services(Coach types used & amities on board) in South America, Australia, South Africa, Westerns Asia(Japan) & some European Countries are just unbelieve, making North America inter-city coach travel look something like you see on some comedy movies where your on school bus with chickens, and other farm animals luggage on the roof.
  11. Mark Can you send me the link for the book? I did receive that e-mail from CTHF for some reason?
  12. I'm no lawyer or claim to know the law? But!! If these social media sights have evidence of some one breaking the law are these social media agencies/internet sights not required to hand over evidence to police or inform them that crime was committed?
  13. I'm not a person to tell some one that he or she should get the shot? That's up to each individual to decide. Lets face realty here, the only way Covide will go away or least 99% of it, if everyone gets the shot and that includes babies. Yes I know that won't happen, but if people want to avoid further out breaks & lock downs that's the only way you will see Covide go away. I know a lot don't want that but that's the only way like it or not.
  14. Does the TTC still have that GM New Look Info-Bus ? do they still have it?
