  1. I think if you market the site enough you can make good business. CPTDB is a great start and you can even sell them on ebay like other stores do.. The thing is at one point you're gonna have so many orders at one time that you'll need an extra hand lol. I was thinking of doing that too(selling anyways) some of my own pictures to postcard companies and such. Even at local stores.

    Ya I ws thinking of that last night too. That;s certainly something I'm looking forward to doing. Most likely during the auto show next year though.
  5. So does anyone know how many buses each system is getting for sure? I can't even say what Windsor is getting but I'm gonna guess at least 10.
  6. Not my pic, but posted with permission.

    Then if the ridership is able to be handled by the EZ Riders other than during rushour, then why are they both still used DURING rushour along with another 40ft bus... Should it not be 3 40ft so it does not put as much strain on the EZ Riders? And don't you think that they would be crush loaded during rushour since the lineup at the tunnel is phenominal?
  10. You guys want a funny video, send me a PM with ur email, ill send ya a video me and my mom made.. I bet you'd be laughing for hours.

    Hey on April 1st(a sunday) im going downtown to cover TW's shuttle role for Wrestlemania in Detroit. I'll be taking pics and taking notes on which buses are doing what. Does anybody want to come along?
  12. Ya lol.. Looking forward to that update!
  13. I think it could be done too. The GTA is growing like crazy and the only way that GO is gonna keep up with that(and congested rail lines later on) is to make more rail lines in the future. More bus lines can always be an asset as well.
  14. Oh ok. I thought that Regina had like 100,000 people. Ok, still good non the less! I was having trouble finding rosters for both of the transit systems online, is there any links you can give me for them. Or just list how many buses each has of each type(ie.40 D40LFs, 50 Classics...) Thanks again.
  15. Is it true that they both have about/over 100 buses? And 16-18 routes? That's incredible for the populations.

    Avatars

    I was wondering...How do you scale down the size of your pics to fit the avatar? all of mine are over 600kb straight from the cam and I don't know how to lower it. Thanks.
  17. Where will they be built at? There can be a chance that I will see one before you guys will if they ship it through Windsor again like they did 0626 lol. Then I can get pics and post em here.

    Woodstock Transit

    Ok I'm back in Windsor now. All 3 Novas are all white and they all have(to my knowledge) rear destination signs. I have no idea when they got the other 2 novas but they had #3 for a while now. Havne't seen a WT classic nor did I know they had one lol. I payed a visit to the garage(since its right near my aunt's house) and I saw 3 WT Orion 3's, 2 WT New Looks, and one Oakville Transit New look. I don't have any of the numbers and I don't know which ones are active. The only buses I saw active were some New Looks and the 3 Novas.

    Ya the buses I was on today fishtailed around every corner. And we had to bypass EC Row because of an accident on the Walker overpass. We took essex-way, North service, then took the EC Row off-ramp from central and got on EC Rown after Walker. The traffic was backed up to Lauzon Parkway almost from that accident. But I don't know what happened. There was a cop car blocking the on-ramp after Central so no cars could join the mess. The 1C Express came like 10 minutes late and the 3 came about 30 minutes late. By far the best buses in the snow today were the 05 novas. No sliding or anything, even start up had a tight grip, same with braking.

    Hey I found this in the Windsor Star from today. Transit Windsor eyes A'burg service Windsor Star Published: Tuesday, February 13, 2007 Getting from Amherstburg to Windsor may be a bus stop away in the future. The town is in talks with Transit Windsor about starting a bus route that would link Amherstburg to the city, said Transit Windsor general manager Penny Williams. "We hope it's something that we can see in the future," Williams said. "We believe that it will be good for the economies of all of the affected parties and the environment." Amherstburg has stashed away $30,000 of its 2007 budget for a future bus system, but treasurer Paul Beneteau said he did not know what the final cost of establishing a public transportation system may be. Tecumseh, LaSalle, Lakeshore and Amherstburg officials recently met with Transit Windsor staffers to hash out plans for an extended system. But Williams said discussions over a countywide transit system are still in the early stages and that no municipality had committed to paying into such a system. "The City of Windsor taxpayers fund 40 per cent of Transit Windsor's budget, so in order for us to go into adjacent municipalities there has to be an agreement that 100 per cent of the costs of providing that service would be paid for by a partnership between the users of that system and that municipality," Williams said. "It can't cost Windsor taxpayers any money." BUS SYSTEM URGED Tecumseh has been asked to get a public transit system started in its most populated areas by the fall. Melanie Tanovich, who grew up using transit in the Toronto area, said she was surprised by the lack of a bus system when she moved to Tecumseh with her young family almost four years ago. She gave council a petition with about 1,000 names of those who were interested in bus service. © The Windsor Star 2007
  25. If nobody cared, then why are there 30-40 people on one cutaway every day in Chatham? IIRC on all of them...
