    Apparently it's september 5th they go back to full service according to the TW website. Also the 605 amherstburg route schedule is up in the schedules and maps section of the TW site. No 605 on the "wheres my bus" section yet. I'm sure it will be ready for september

    Ok so the new route to amherstburg will be named the 605, as it falls under the new route naming guidelines that will be used as the transit master plan is implimented. The new route guidelines will be as follows. all primary routes will be in the 100’s, secondary routes 200’s, local routes 300’s, skip stop (semi-express) routes 400’s, expressway routes 500’s, regional routes 600’s, and school extras 700’s. Some of these changes have already been implemented, such as Route 518X and the school extras. Routes with a primarily north-south alignment will be assigned odd numbers, (hence the designation of Route 605 for Amherstburg), and routes with a primarily eastwest alignment will have even numbers. The numbers will be separated by 5, so for example, 605 then 610, then 615, and so on. This allows Transit Windsor to follow industry standards for route names. (taken from city of Windsor agenda) To make it easier to read, ill list them like this 100s - Primary 200s - Secondary 300s - Local 400s - Semi-Express 500s - Expressway 600s - Regional 700s - School Extras Also the buses that will retire once the new novas are here (24), are as follows. 425-436, 438, 440-444, 555, 557, 558, 559, 562, 564.

    With transit windsor service to amhersrburg starting in September, and service to lakeshore possible in the next few years, now talks of a possible route between windsor and colchester with stops in Paquette corners, McGregor and harrow. It would take walker rd and county road 13. Exciting to see all the talks now of expansion, I hope they like this idea and it goes thru!

    Would never work for many reasons, one being ridership. There's not enough demand for something of that scale.

    I wonder if this is a new paint job coming up for LT? I found this on facebook
  8. I havent read much into the posts regarding this, but could it have been a medical trauma that caused the accident if the operator was in control?
  9. Boy did they ever make that yellow stripe small this time around. You can barely see it at all.
  10. I was thinking it might be as well. It should no issue to send them to transit windsor for training? Edit. Leamingtons drivers etc might still have their licenses as they used to have the orion 1

    I noticed 8023(lasalle bus) and 8043(not a lasalle bus) on the 25 today. 8024 must have needed some work done, that or someone screwed up as only 8023 and 8024 are branded to be used on the 25 nothing else!
  12. Have these enviros entered service yet?

    So for the first day of service for the 518X, 627 and 442 are being used with headways of around 30 mins all day basically

    The company contracted to plan a new route network had used the number 18 for this new route, for no particular reason, only as a means to identify the route. Transit Windsor must have used it as a reference and added a 5 to it possibly to identify it as an express route, making the 518.
