  1. Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    If Global is to be believed, sounds like the guy jumped onto the outside of the moving train and grabbed onto a mirror to ride it.

    Any insights into the 9 during afternoon rush? Tried it last week but was 15 minutes late and two were following each other. Chalked it up to being new. Tried again today and same thing. Still kinks because it's new? Traffic? Construction?. So far in the morning it's been good.

    Took the new number 9 this morning which replaced my beloved 419. Was surprised to see it was a normal size bus, and more surprised that there was literally one other person on board. The usual 419 folks either moved on to other new routes or took the earlier bus. Everything lined up with the train so if that was a daily thing it indeed saves me time in the morning but not sure I would be so lucky on the way home. Train was also much more crowded than in the summer but that stands to reason with more students/people back to work for the fall.

    Just based on the chatter in the morning and the letter asking us to fill out the online survey, people aren't thrilled about the 419 changes.

    Bleh. As a regular 419 user this sucks (assuming I am reading the proposed new routes correctly and that the new 9/419 won't go into downtown). Having that quiet ride into/out of the core every day was nice. Still options for rush hour (1/305) but in my experience they aren't as good.

    What does that tweet have to do with anything though in this discussion? Seems like every time I disagree with something on here or post a criticism, you just go back to that. It was stupid for sure but definitely a heat of the moment thing. CT Twitter is very hit or miss but there are actual constructive gripes from time to time. I sympathize with operators more than I used to for sure since you more often than not cannot win. In the case of the hail event, yeah the operator might never have been put on emergency shuttle duty and was caught up in a crappy situation but to shrug your shoulders and just drive off with three people on board is not the best look. And as people have mentioned even CT themselves said the situation could have been handled better.

    No offense but why bring it up then?
  12. Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    An assault? What happened?
  13. Calgary Transit

    My bad. Just needed to vent. Just so frustrated about it.

    Pretty much. Like I said though it's mostly anger at being caught the one time out of hundreds (if not thousands) I did pay. And apparenlty community service is an option for these things but not sure I want to waste my time doing that. Best part was me complaining I was actually going to miss my bus now because of it and them calling in to assure me I wouldn't lol. Or even showing them the three dollars I had but didn't have time to put in.

    Of course. They were very nice about it but it was just so crappy and yet expected. Paying all of those fares and never being asked to see them. Serves me right I guess.
