    That's pretty bad. I go there everyday(Dougall off-ramp from EC Row) and I can't even remember if there's a median. There's got to be another way around that. Ok, how about this? The route from College Terminal to Devonshire mall as it is but on the way back it's different. When it leaves the mall it heads south on Howard, then west on Liberty and north on Dougall. Then it turns west on Grand Marais and north on Dominion and west on Northwood. Then the same back up to the College Terminal. That should work! and it still services the U and 5 high schools along with the mall and previously uncovered area transit-wise.

    Hey Wonka, come to Windsor and I bet you'll change your mind about the VI and the LFS! I think you'll like the VII too.

    Ok I have a route for you guys, I wanna see what you think. Since there's a 15 on the transfers(and I don't think there has been a 15...ever), I called it the 15 University. It goes Between the College Ave. Terminal and the Devonshire Mall Terminal servicing the U. 15 UNIVERSITY (Southbound) College Ave Terminal north on Felix west on Mill east on Sandwich/Riverside South on California east on Northwood north on Dougall east on Eugenie South on Howard east on Sydney(where the 1A and 7 goes) Proceed to Devonshire Mall Terminal (Northbound is reversed)
  5. Oh ya, I forgot to add the RTS, NFI D40LF, and 3 different model Gilligs for my area, lol. Even though it's really rare that I see them, maybe twice a year.

    Oh ya, I forgot to put this here. This morning the 1C Express came 30 minutes late because the driver had to drive really slow. There was something wrong with the bus(535) but I don't know what. So we waited for 519 for a change off and 535 was driven back to the garage. So for that I was around 40 minutes late(compared to my regular schedule) after it was all over. At least I wasn't late for school.
  7. Yep. It's painted in Transit Windsor's predicessor(sp? ) paint job, Sandwich, Windsor and Amherstburg(SW&A). Check the pictures on BARP, there's some pretty good ones on there.
  8. Honestly that's a hard thing to do. I rarely ever see them anymore. And 912 is still in service. Everytime I see them they're either too far away for a pic or I see them at the last second. I'll get them one day hopefully.

    Ok, hopefully I have it right now. I changed the angled bus bays to a large square like terminal with all the routes supposed to be an equal length apart from each other. It doesn't really look like they are but It's supposed to be. Also I included the 1C route because I don't know if they would keep it or get rid of it once the 101, 102, and 103X routes come(If that happens). I changed the driver resting area to where the green is where it is now.

  13. Farewell from Windsor 862...Since ours were retired not too long ago. I know how you all feel, I liked ours a lot until they started smelling like they were ANTIQUE! I hope your Is were good, cuz ours were the rejects of the fleet.
  14. Anyone ever see this one before?

    Ok here we go. I redid the bus island to include the 10A and I rounded the inlets for the buses when they're turning out of the bays. I moved the Drop Off Lane(DOL) to the left side of the terminal, which only cars dropping off passengers to the terminal/mall can go. The aqua coloured lanes are the outside lanes for the buses that I told you about in the last post. Ummm, the terminal is buses only. The yellow scratches are where the people can get the the mall entrances from the parking area(i still don't like that part for some reason) and the terminal. The sidewalk at the right side/bottom has been extended for people coming from the terminal and parking. The arrows on the roads around the parking area are all 2 way roads(as you can see from the messy arrows lol) and the arrows pointing out of the parking area(inside the yellow) are the only spots you can enter/leave the parking area. I think that's it.

    Ya I did the angled bus bays like that since it works at CAT(College ave Terminal) with like 5 different bus routes. I forgot to add the 10A on the island on the left(eastbound) side too. The bus area will be buses only with the road that goes by the left side of the terminal there for cars. The lane on the right that has DOL is a drop off lane for cars that want to drop off passengers. That would be the only area where cars are allowed in. I'll make some adjustments and throw it back on here. Also about the bus bays being angled(before I forget, lol) There are 2 lanes for buses there. The closest one to the island is for buses pulling in/out of the bays. The the outer one is for buses leaving the terminal. And on the left side there's a separate lane for cars. I'll show ya in the next pic.

    I just did a drawing on MS Paint of what I think the Tecumseh Mall Bus Terminal should look like in accordance with the new plan that they made with all the routes. Here's the Legend. Blue-Mall Entrance Red-Bus Shelter Green-Bus Driver Resting Room Yellow-Public Parking spaces Grey-Sidewalk/pavement Burgandy-Tecumseh Mall Orange-Sobey's Loading Area White-road The buses on the Left side are heading Eastbound, whle on the left they are heading Westbound. The roads around the buses are all one-way(as you can see from the arrows. So tell me what you think.

    I ride Orion VIs every day. The past 2-3 weeks with the detroit river over our heads(A LOT OF RAIN), I didnt see one leak. I rode 2 today alone and didn't see anything anywhere! Maybe it's just 421.

    Just to let you know the downtown bus terminal is coming along pretty good. The terminal building itself is gonna be huge. The distance between Chatham and Pitt is pretty big, and that's the whole length of the building. I don't have any specifics yet on how many bus routes will go there, but I can tell you that it will be 7.5 million dollars and the target opening date is May 2007. Here is a picture from last wednesday's(Not the one that just passed) Windsor Star.

    VIA 6400

    So how many engines and LRCs are they repainting? Is it just the 6400s that they're repainting?

    Does anyone have the links to the other pictures that were mentioned from a different source?

    That's what I want to start doing. Ride the routes that I never rode before for a larger portion of the route to see where it goes and what's along the route. The ones I want to ride the most are the 5, 6 , 7, and the 10. Transit Windsor should implement the old 5,6 and 8 As and Bs in a style like what London Transit has. After rideing on London Transit and seeing/experiencing what they have to offer, I realized how poor quality TW is. I don't mean we don't have a lot of routes or a smaller fleet than what we should have, but the routes themselves and the infastructure. Ex: every bus stop has the route #s that go there, grid-pattern routes, routes that serve certain districts from a transit hub, routes that branch off into more than one route(5-5A & 5B).

    I only saw that the one time and that was it. It was the grey new flyer demo that I posted a pic of in an earlier post somewhere in this thread. I remember that it was coming west down Tecumseh Road in front of the Canadian Tire(near Forest Glade) and it had a yellow classic behind it. As has been mentioned before, new flyer could have been Windsor's order for 2004 but it went to Orion. So we still might be able to get some NFIs later on this year. Whatever we get, I bet it will be around Christmas. And I saw 912 on the 10 and 907 on the 4 at TMT a couple days ago, so they're still with us for a bit.
