  1. Plan is for all routes. The (now out of date) schedule is on the TTC website: http://www.ttc.ca/About_the_TTC/Projects/New_Vehicles/New_Streetcars/index.jsp I hear rumours there's an updated schedule coming.
  2. Station is an underground station. Like Pape. Stop is a concrete platform in the middle of the road. Like St. Clair.
  3. I'm a firm believer in not leaving the house, until I know how far away the bus is, using nextbus data.
  4. The detailed schedule for each stop is on the TTC website, effective Feb 12, 2017. Eastbound at Royal York for eg. http://www.ttc.ca/Schedule/schedule.jsp?Route=501E&Stop=e.b._on_Lake_Shore_Blvd_West_at_Royal_York_Rd Looks like every 5.5 minutes from 5:43 AM to 9:19 AM, and then every 6 minutes for mid-day. Though a 9-minute gap wouldn't surprise me, but presumably there'd be a 2-minute gap somewhere to make up for it.
  5. No app uses it? https://www.transsee.ca/predict?s=ttc.506.3548 looks okay. https://whereismystreetcar.appspot.com/html/stop/506/1861.html looks okay http://www.nextbus.com/#!/ttc/504/504_0_504/4748 looks okay http://totransit.ca/ looks okay I'm not finding an app that isn't working ... those are the only 4 I use. edit - though something is up:
  6. Sometime when there's a big 504 gap, they'll send a 514 up to Broadview; perhaps they've done the same on Roncesvalles. They use a 504 sign on it, but in the Nextbus data it remains a 514.
  7. I wonder what that's about. I might dislike the man, but he's always seemed to be an effective in his role.
  8. I was just noticing that. 14 cars on 510, and 7 each on 509 and 514.
  9. I don't think so. I was on the 504 that was following 4409 down King and Queen. When we turned north, I could see the entourage with 4409 (the pushing ALRV, and TTC trucks both in front of and behind) was only about a block east of Broadview. The 501 right behind us followed us up Broadview. At Gerrard, I pulled out my phone, and the announcement about the Degrassi wire problem was about 2 minutes old. Just a coincidence.
  10. overhead is fixed, but not it's down at Degrassi/Queen Odd you mention 4409, just saw it about 30 minutes ago being pushed down King by an ALRV, with all it's power off. Perhaps they raised the panto because of a problem with the pole. Odder still, I was following it on a 504, and 4409 headed east on Queen towards Degrassi - and the 501 behind us followed us up Broadview to detour because of the down wire at Degrassi.
  11. Hmm, counting 24 in service now. 14 on 510. 6 on 509, and 4 on 514. A record?
  12. This morning, it would seem. But they seem to change up what they are doing every week.
  13. 514 is back on Nextbus. Only 4 cars on 509 - but also 4 Flexities on 514 as well. So they've maintained 22 in service (with the 14 on 514). edit - with rush hour over, dropped to 3 cars on 509 and two on 514.
  14. 4429 was offloaded today. 4430 is loaded on a flat car in Thunder Bay, ready to ship.
  15. It's in service on 510 this morning.
