  2. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2020/06/27/racist-graffiti-line-2-subway/ Something sneaked into Greenwood and did this?
  3. Does this mean they'll stop temporary moving buses to Obico and North Queen?
  4. Covid19 might have helped this situation by starting to make more people work from home, work away from the financial district or with staggered start times. It might not be as bad as we thought it will be in 2030.
  5. Then it seems splitting the line at Union to be a transfer station seems to be better than running it as a loop; from an operating perspective.
  6. If the loop was created, can the clockwise trains operate totally independently from the counter clockwise trains?
  7. Union theoretically should be an interchange station that splits the two sides of Line 1. But unfortunately due to the surroundings, they cannot build another platform that supports 2 rails horizontally to the existing platform nor can they build a platform under the existing one.

  9. Not really "news" news and not a TTC question so don't know where else to put this. Danforth garage could potentially be destroyed with its space to be use as an affordable home project. Scroll down the page to near the middle. https://www.blogto.com/city/2020/05/housing-now-toronto-phase-2-new-locations/
  10. Maybe it's a perception thing but these K9Ms look smaller than the XE40s and BE40s. Similar length wise to the LFSes. The section between rear door to front wheel is so short and the back doesn't look like it can hold too many seats either. The LFS wasted alot of its length with the curve front end but K9M has a pretty flat front end so I wonder where did all the space go...
  11. Oh right. Forgot about that. That also means they should still keep the 07/08 AG300s for backup use.
  12. I'm surprised they lasted 15 years without any rebuild. MiWay retires them at 12 years and Ottawa has to rebuild or retire them at 12 years.
  13. Metro Vancouver is much smaller than GTA.

  15. Just notice the BYDs have Gemini seats as oppose to the Insight that the other 2 electric models use. There was an interior pic posted in this thread a few pages back. The rear step is really weird. If you think the Xcelsior rear step is weird, this is another level...
  16. If they are more useful on Finch East, why put them on Sheppard East in the first place.
  17. Well that original reply was from official TTC so how the hell would I know if they unofficially changed it and told their ticket enforcement people to do that. That was my being proactive instead of being reactive to the now deemed incorrect reply by the TTC themselves. The original paper transfer didn't have the same rule as the Presto card. It didn't even allow the 2h transfer of unlimited travel. And clearly TTC knew their reply had inaccurate information hence they posted another reply so fast and it went over the news this morning so everyone sees it.
  18. As of last night of my post, that was my impression and hence my original reply to be on the safe side after reading the original quote. (From this reply of TTC) https://twitter.com/MetroManTO/status/1233911063667605504/photo/2 This just posted by TTC 5h ago which clears this up. Here's the new reply today. https://toronto.citynews.ca/2020/03/01/ttc-fares-go-up-sunday/
  19. So basically when "you think" you are near the 2h mark, get off any streetcars. All other TTC vehicles (except bustitution streetcar routes) are safe as transit enforcers don't check them. Drivers check all boarding passengers or you board from a fare paid station and all rapid transit lines are fare paid zones. That's the new unofficial rule.

  21. What's going on with 4401? It's a month after the last unit was delivery. Does it take them this long to finish this unit?
  22. What are the limitations they can't phase this line to start the western segment for service instead of having the entire 19km in service in one shot?
