    GOA transit news, info etc

    STO is leaving people behind... https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/sto-overcrowded-bus-transit-western-quebec-outaouais-ottawa-1.4929556 The number of overcrowded buses has risen 70% compared to last year. The 200 was the most overcrowded (Shocker) 24, 59, 100, and 400 also "busy." The stop bypassed the most was in Ottawa "close to Parliament Hill near Wellington and Bank Streets." I'm assuming Wellington/bank stop. STO explains that its ridership is up 15% since January. STO will try to maximize its resources during rush hour and optimize its articulated buses. From 2020-2024, STO plans to purchase 153 new buses, some will replace older buses. Well, at least their ridership isn't decreasing.

    6666 ---> 91 Baseline, 17:45 Aug 29th, at Lincoln Fields Station 😈 How many sacrifices are required for her to become operational? I'm thinking a dozen cancelled 95 trips, 6 "missing" 88's and 6 BBQ'd Inveroes.

  9. So now that the premium fare Express routes have transitioned into the regular fare routes, have any of you noticed changes in passenger demand? Do the routes carry more or less passengers now? Do people board or make their connections at different stops/Stations, etc?

    Bad luck bus indeed. More importantly, I'm glad that everyone on board got out safely. It's so sad to see a bus burned up like that, especially a double decker.

    STO bus spottings

    On January 10 Near on Buckingham Avenue, around 4:10 PM, 1220 on route 97 towards Labrosse Station. The roads were terrible but it seems like LFS artics perform well in poor weather.

    I don't think so. Although, lately I have not been following the movements of the classics.

    Great to see more Hybrid articulated busses on the roads. STO definitely needs the capacity, since their busses can get pretty crowded during rush hour. Rode 1310, LFS Articulated Diesel, Today on Route 44 Rideau/Elgin 16:30.
