  1. Looks like the 514 is no longer serving Distillery Loop after 10pm. Is this due to the noise complaints? Interestingly enough, they are running a 514 shuttle bus using a Wheel-Trans vehicle to fill the gap. http://www.ttc.ca/Service_Advisories/Route_diversions/514_railgrinding.jsp
  2. Not sure if there is a new arrangement with Pacific Western, but spotted 3 Prevost H3-45's today running Casino Rama runs. One was 3010 which had an Angel Tours logo on the front, and two others (didn't catch the numbers) lost their PW markings and are running plain green.
  3. I believe this is the company you are referring to... http://www.gamesonwheels.ca/
  4. They also have a MCI 102D3 that is all white with an OLG Slots logo towards the front. I believe they use that one on a Georgian Downs run of some sort.
  5. 7250 was on 96 with a Horizon front sign, but the side sign and rear sign were not functioning. Couldn't get a good look, but they still looked to be old green LED Luminators.
  6. Spotted another new York U Shuttle. It was a low-floor Glaval II LF cutaway. It is equipped with an electronic destination sign (Luminator?). It was running on the Glendon shuttle today with the destination sign displaying VanGO.
  7. The set I was on this evening had revised announcements and next stop displays for Spadina and St. George announcing connections to the Bloor Danforth subway. Long overdue IMO.
  8. From the not sure which topic this goes in file... City Sightseeing Toronto put a brand new open-top Enviro 400 into service. Spotted it on Queens Quay this afternoon. Looks sharp!
  9. To add, here is some info on the GM RTS' that Disney was running. This information came from an operator that I met years ago while visiting Florida and is quite interesting. I have additional fleet info somewhere that I will keep looking for. 2701-2707 40x96 1980 GMC RTS II 04 2708-2712 35x96 1980 GMC RTS II 04 2713-2717 35x96 1981 GMC RTS II 04 2718-2720 35x96 1982 GMC RTS II 04 2721-2726 40x96 1982 GMC RTS II 04 2727-2738 40x96 1983 GMC RTS II 04 2739-2743 40x96 1987 GMC RTS II 06 2744 40x102 1980 GMC RTS II 04 - Originally a GM Engineering bus Note: 2745-2780 were bought used in 1998, and rebuilt by Midwest Bus 2745-2758 40x102 1979/80 GMC RTS II 03 - Originally Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority, and Detroit Dept of Transportation/SEMTA 2759-2767, 2773-2778, 2780 40x102 1980 GMC RTS II 04 - Originally Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 2768-2772, 2779 40x102 1981 GMC RTS II 04 - Originally Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) Disney Fleet # / Serial / Origin / Year / Original Fleet # 2745 775 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1979 7918 2746 760 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1979 7923 2747 1512 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1980 8041 2748 2749 811 Detroit Dept of Transportation/SEMTA (Detroit MI) 1979 1518L 2750 1477 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1980 8007 2751 807 Detroit Dept of Transportation/SEMTA (Detroit MI) 1979 1514L 2752 772 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1979 7915 2753 2754 2755 790 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1979 7933 2756 1509 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1980 8039 2757 1480 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1980 8010 2758 1481 Southeastern Michigan Transportation Authority (Detroit, MI) 1980 8011 2759 810143 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1009 2760 810146 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1012 2761 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 2762 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 2763 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 2764 810202 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1068 2765 810365 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1231 2766 810296 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1162 2767 810277 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1143 2768 812491 Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) 1981 368 2769 812489 Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) 1981 366 2770 812488 Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) 1981 365 2771 2772 812483 Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) 1981 360 2773 810188 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1054 2774 810373 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1239 2775 810193 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1059 2776 810164 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1030 2777 810254 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1120 2778 810150 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1016 2779 812497 Miami Valley Regional Transit Authority (Dayton, OH) 1981 373 2780 810259 Metro Dade County Transit Authority (Miami, FL) 1980 1125
  10. Spotted 9891 active this evening NB Bayview at Lawrence. Is this the last ELF remaining?
  11. 546* set has received some modifications. On 5461 and 5462, external speakers have been placed above each doorway for the door opening/closing chime. The blue LED wheelchair lights have been placed back on those cars. 5463-6 have the previous modifications with the speaker in place of the blue LED light, although there are indications marked above each door where the newer style speakers might go. Inside, the internal door chime is no longer played, rather the "Stand Clear" announcement is played at the same time the external chime goes off. Hopefully this modification rolls around to the other TR's soon. Seemed to work great!
  12. Is Route 90 contracted to First like the rest of the system, or is it under a different contract? The fleet numbers are in line with Sinton's numbering.
  13. It appears the TR announcements have been updated recently. They have removed the "Interchange Station" portion of the annoucement, along with that text on the displays at those stops. The maps continue to blink to show the connection however.
  14. Perhaps NovaBus could import a Volvo product (with North American modifications of course) for this tender?
  15. I didn't realize you knew everyone that wore a suit! Have you met them all to form that opinion?
