    Oh, random note in case people didn't notice already but you can get the shiny new EasyGO Farecards now, even though they gave a release date of March 1. I was surprised I was able to get one last Thursday at Charles terminal

    TTC is the Flexity Outlook All of the ION trains are here now, but our delays are a complex situation between the Region, Metrolinx, Toronto, and Bombardier, and this basically sums it up: http://www.waterlooregionconnected.com/showthread.php?tid=14&pid=59892#pid59892

    GOA transit news, info etc

    there's talk on reddit that the driver may have swerved to avoid a pedestrian that was on the transitway...

    On another note related to fleet numbers, I'm surprised you guys don't have any table with details on every LRV here like you have for just about every other fleet https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Ottawa-Carleton_Regional_Transit_Commission_O-Train_'Confederation_Line'

    501 and 514 were both offloaded this morning so that means all 14 of our LRVs are delivered! wiki is updated

    Our LRV operators love it when you take pictures of them

    Looks like that is correct for the offloading date - but 501 had a bit of a unique experience in that it was brought down from the siding to the OMSF on the morning of the 24th (Friday) then sat there on the flatcar until the morning of the 27th (Monday) when it was finally offloaded. Probably some more details to work out back then as it was the first offload. My thought on the wiki page was to use the date that the LRV was brought into the OMSF from the siding as the "delivery date" which for the other LRVs was the same as the offload date but for 501's first trip was not.

    Cool, that would have been our last two cars and they're now in Lancaster yard! They're somewhat marked 501 has yellow tape on it and 514 has the number "16" taped on the windshield for Bombardier car 16

    Hi, we're actually still waiting on 514 to arrive and 501 to come back. According to a CTV report from this past weekend they're both expected to arrive this week. Heard from sources they've both been shipped but I'm not 100% on that. I started a page for you guys btw https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Ion_501-514

    Oh, so on this past Sunday the 30th, around 11:45pm or so at night I believe I passed the TTC command bus on the 401 somewhere between Milton and Guelph, heading away from Toronto. Any idea what it was up to?
