    New route 18 coming in september, east-west express route between Tecumseh mall - devonshire mall - st clair college. (from the new master plan) From Windsor star article on facebook New east-west student express approved as pilot partnership between city, college The City of Windsor and St. Clair College are hopping aboard a new east-west express bus route as a pilot project, to dramatically trim the two hours it currently takes to ride from east Windsor to the college’s main campus. Route 18 would start in September to coincide with the start of classes at the
  7. Not everyone has all the time in the world to go searching for information like in council minutes which can be hundreds of pages to go through. Also google does not always show this information as well in their seach functions and city websites search functions tend to be very unreliable as well. Google is not always the answer in every case. So i appreciate you posting the information.

    From the environment, transportation and public safety standing committee meeting on january 20th "The town of amherstburg is having conversation around public transit. A proposal from the city of windsor was provided to the town of amherstburg and was fully supported by their council. A public consultation was held and the city of windsor provided a proposal relating to routing, options and alternative route modifications." "A proposal has been provided to the town of tecumseh. Their current contract expires and we look forward to furthur communication with them to keep the r
  9. Any news regarding artics? I know they wanted 3 per year for 3 years starting this year. Would the order be placed this year for a 2022 delivery?
  10. I asked a few members who were not sure of the answer so Ill try here. Is the new northfield facility a replacement for strasburg? Or will this bring GRT up to 3 bus garages? Thank you!

    It is a fail cuz its supposed to be stop and go for hybrids, not 52km one way with 4 stops. Hybrid should have been used on a city route and a diesel used on the highway route.

    Transit Windsor

    well, 11 2020 novas in service today in the city. 615(a hybrid) on the 42 heading down the highway to leamington....fail. And also I seen 425 today with a fresh coat of paint in the smaller 3 inch stripes, looks good! Proof that its gonna stick around for a while longer!

    I forgot to mention that they will be doing open houses for the proposed route from Windsor to Amherstburg(including transfer stops to the 25 on Front rd in Lasalle). https://windsorite.ca/2020/09/open-house-planned-for-proposed-amherstburg-bus-service/
  14. I was under the impression that 2 NOVA LFS Artics were on order and previously awarded? I believe someone mentioned that a few pages back.
  15. Any word yet on the articulated buses? is there a timeline for delivery or anything, maybe a specific month?

    So talks are still going forward with Transit Windsor service to Amherstburg. https://www.talktheburg.ca/transit at the bottom right there are 3 files, one of them being the proposed route. Now I noticed in the file name it says route 20...could that be a hint of it being named the 20 Amherstburg if it all goes through?

    Tecumseh Transit

    Ok so i just seen it and it is indeed bus number 4. Idk if something happened to the other bus 4 or what but they did have 2 fords bus 3 and 4 because the bus numbers were in 2 different places.
  21. MaT

    Tecumseh Transit

    No bus 4 is identical to bus 3 with the ford front end and the bus numbers(3 and 4) are in different places. This is a totally different bus. Im almost willing to say this is bus 5. Im gonna check after work to see the bus number and get more pics.

    So they have a 3rd bus now?? Was it in service or at the garage?
  23. You should check the wiki before making posts like this. All the information is there if you were not aware, many systems are updated fairly frequently. Here is RTCs wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Réseau_de_transport_de_la_Capitale#Current
  24. Might be road worthy after an immense amount of money to make it happen. That doesnt mean that its legal for carrying passengers either, thats a whole new ballgame. Dont forget that is how novabus originally came up with the LFS artic demos.
