  1. https://stevemunro.ca/2019/07/22/comfirm-or-deny-big-changes-coming-to-go-bus-service/ Mass GO Bus network dismantling and layoffs potentially coming. This is crazy if true.
  2. It does say Viva service will operate at 15 minute frequencies in the asterisk though. Does any Viva route currently operate higher than 15 min frequencies rite now?
  3. Surprising this hasn't been mentioned anywhere, but I assume its because its nowhere in the news. A passenger was stabbed on one of the last runs of 98/99 last night, with police saying it was random.
  4. Last time on the Blue Line. But has the MR 63 ever seen service on the blue line?
  5. Skip to 00:22 in the first video. 3016 and 3017 have been sounding different lately. Are these the two units that have received special treatment from Bombardier? It's really loud in the second video.
  6. The best option for a UTSC route would be Markville Mall -> STC GO Terminal -> UTSC. Perhaps this would present an opportunity for YRT to take over the popular 129A and build new ridership heading to UTSC? Perhaps: 29 McCowan between Major Mackenzie -> STC GO 29A McCowan between Bullock Drive -> UTSC via STC GO Having the bus loop around Bullock Drive would be beneficial as it would create a $0.75 connection from Lincolnville/Uxbridge/Stouffville GO Bus riders looking for a direct connection to UTSC. Having a one seat, one fare connection to two major trip generations (STC and UTSC) would make this a fairly successful and high ridership route. Also whoopee for free connections to DRT! Thoughts?
  7. If your trip begins and ends in Markham (for example 14th/Markham Rd -> Markville Mall), this is considered a trip that is fully within York Region and only requires one fare. FYI, if you are taking a Northbound "TTC in York Region" bus, you simply board the bus and you do not pay until you exit the bus (weird I know!). You will receive a special TTC transfer with a bunch of holes in it. The holes show that it is a "YRT transfer" and will be valid on YRT & Viva for 2 hours. Take TTC 102D North to Highway 7. Then take Viva Purple or YRT 1 West to Markville Mall. Route 54 is not a YRT/Viva bus. It is a GO bus and your transfer will not be valid for that bus.
  8. Not with the incoming changes to Viva Orange. I would expect that route to have service cut back dramatically once the VNEP goes into effect.
  9. Ah, yes I assume the AG300s will be retired starting this or next year. According to the reports on York.ca, Viva buses will start getting "replacement" units as opposed to expansion units starting in 2018.
  10. It's actually not a film applied on the window. Its literally a separate piece of plastic that is screwed in about 1cm away from the window itself. Considering how bright the Viva interiors are on the LFXs, the plastic made it EXTREMELY difficult to gaze outside at night. Made everything look double like what someone witth astigmatism would see. Yea, the AG300s were scheduled to be replaced at the 12 year mark. I guess they rescheduled their replacement? Do you have the link to the report? Cant find it on their website
  11. The 2010 LFXs have been through a refurbishment program. They only have a 12 year lifespan. And I believe they receive treatment at 6 years. You can tell which ones have been refurbished from the yellow accents added to the interior.
  12. I noticed the layer of plastic protecting the windows have been removed from the 10xx Nova's. Still on the 13xx Nova's. Is there any purpose to those things aside from protecting windows from scratchitti? Were they removed during rebuild?
  13. That's awesome... Considering years ago, they considered adding zone fares if you travelled past Hwy 404 and Hwy 400 in an east-west direction!
  14. Stumbled upon this bizarre pic. Anyone with any info?
