  1. All the crews are signed before spareboard. Maybe the operator who signed the crew is on long term absent.
  2. depends on the mode. 25 days for bus. subway is the longest 31 days iirc.
  3. I never seen the proterra, byd is equally if not worse. Drivers are reminded to check the metal hooks beneath the bench seats (lack of space inside the buses) during the circle check. they must be folded back in or they will create tripping hazzard. I did see at least a proterra at Jet shop the other day when I was doing Warden.
  4. 8045 is guarantee done after it suffered electrical fire this morning.
  5. 1262 is wrapped for Healthy Planet full wrap.
  6. didn't zoom sold their buses already?
  7. From a facebook group. The following vehicles have Black lives Matter wrap 1254 4573 8057 607x 8153 1661 I have been away from Eglinton garage for the past 2 weeks so I don't know if any Eglinton buses are wrapped for Black Lives matter wrap.
  8. a streetcar got a black history month partial wrap. i am not sure which one
  9. the damage wasn't as bad as the nova had its roof taken off at warden. The damage did leave a gash or a hole near the front of the bus.
  10. i wasn't there to witness it. I was told the accident happened at the off loading bay behind the 25B. Based on the damage on 3754, my education guess is that the bus driver did a called "overhang" maneuver and caused the accident. Overhang maneuver is a technique where the front portion of the bus (the part before the front axle) is actually above the sidewalk or curb. This maneuver is done to help the bus to navigate a turns that are very tight. We were taught this technique during training. In this case the bus driver want to the bus parked as close to the bus stop as possible to avoid tripping hazard. I do the overhang maneuver with Orion and Nova bus numerous times and never have a problem. BYD is slightly taller than nova, hence it may not able to clear the vents.
  11. 3754 will be sidelined for the next little while. It clipped the roof vent at Don Mills station. I don't think the byd will be deployed on Don mills route anytime soon.
  12. this photo was snapped in York region.
  13. it doesn't really. you will be put into the mode where you are needed. Most likely buses.
  14. it is restricted to buses only but drivers don't read. the road signs. North service is open but the road ends at the commuter parking lot hence all buses are leaving via south service road. South service road is extremly tight. you can't have 2 buses turning at the blind corner at once.
  15. Arrow is sorta short on staff. Don't be surprise to see rad buses appear on Arrow routes especially on Jane
  16. how is it special? I mean Malvern have buses running out of Kennedy. Rte 21.
  17. none. This is the second prototype. Some drivers were complaining about the glare generated by the plastic shield. I am actually concern about the tinted shield. What you are driving in an area with poor lighting, you can't really see the right mirrors.
  18. there is a magnetic on the top and a pin at the bottom. . it is quite small, I have to question how effective the small piece of magnet will hold up.
  19. The newest generation of wheel trans vehicle has arrived and in service. Spotted W700 yesterday at Don Mills Station. It is a Dodge Promaster cutaway van. I believe it is identical to the demo presented to TTC earlier this year. Sadly, I didn't have time to stop and check it out. I wouldn't be surprise if it is a hybrid. I haven't seen an old livery Ford Friendly wheel trans bus lately, I guess TTC has the refurnblished ones left and their dates are numbered.
  20. there was a class that didn't finish training after the layoff. It may be the same group.
  21. i haven't kept track of the BYD but for sure 3757 hasn't plated yet. i believe it is the only BYD unit hasn't plated yet.
  22. lowest bid wins the bid. Nova won the tender. the 20 XE40 are here on trial purposes
  23. maybe not. The new board period starts 2 sundays from now.
  24. that is strange but follow their instructions
