  1. OC Transpo closed down O-Train Line 1 (Confederation Line) for planned maintenance on May 2 and 3, 2020; May 9 to 13, 2020. Replacement buses were implemented during the planned closure, Route R1. Buses 8133 and 8026 at Hurdman Station on May 12, 2020.
  2. I can't speak for the moderators. But I suspect they may have changed the settings to make the National Capital Region forum visible only when members are logged in. If so, I have no issues with that. I have noticed that there is one particular Ottawa board member (who regularly gets suspended) re-posting information that originated from this discussion board onto another discussion board without crediting the original poster or even asking the original poster for permission to re-post the information. I won't identify that board member by name, but some may know who I'm referring to. I don't know if that is the reason why the Forum is hidden, but I do think it would be a good reason to make it hidden to prevent information from being plagiarized elsewhere.
  3. Today (Apr 27), 5011 on Route 131 Fallingbrook, 15:40 trip, spotted at Charlemagne and Tenth Line at 15:50 As of Saturday, Apr 25, the only units at Thermo King are: 5004 5087 (decommissioned) 5171
  4. 5142 on Route 131 Fallingbrook today, run 131-1, doing the :40 trips every hour for the day until 18:40, spotted this morning at 8:50 on Charlemagne and Tenth Line

  6. I now know the story behind why that double decker (you saw) was on Route 164 Hope Side. There was a scheduling error on Route 64 when the runs were being created. Route 64 going westbound when leaving Tunney's Pasture is usually suppose to have an immediate return trip back to Tunney's Pasture from Innovation Park and Ride. What happened was that some runs on Route 64 westbound to Kanata after completing the "Morgan's Grant community loop" (i.e. from Innovation Park and Ride to Innovation Park and Ride) did NOT get scheduled to do a return trip on Route 64 Tunney's Pasture. However, there would have been a different run (i.e. another bus) doing the Route 64 Tunney's Pasture from Innovation. The consequence is that customers boarding a Route 64 in the "Morgan's Grant community loop" would have been forced to exit the bus at Innovation, then board another Route 64 to continue further towards Tunney's Pasture. The implication was that the Route 64 Tunney's Pasture at Innovation Park and Ride could possibly depart before the previous Route 64 from the "Morgan's Grant community loop" arriving. An adjustment had to be made on a number of affected runs to correct that error. This double decker run was affected because originally that run after completing.Route 64 going to Kanata was scheduled to do a return trip to Tunney's Pasture on a different route (Route 66), and then another one-way trip on Route 64 to Kanata without doing a return trip to Tunney's Pasture. With the correction/adjustment made, this run would do a trip westbound on Route 64 to Kanata (as originally scheduled), a return trip on Route 64 Tunney's Pasture (revised/corrected), and then a trip on Route 164 Hope Side (revised to make up whatever run that was originally scheduled to do that specific trip on Route 164). Therefore, expect to see a double decker on that Route 164 until the special COVID-19 service levels (special booking) are no longer needed. I'm not sure whether or not there was an error with Route 63.
  7. The following spotted at Thermo King this morning (April 4, 2020): 5029 5040 5045 5046 5059 5087 (decommissioned but still with licence plate) 5114 5143 5176 Furthermore, I did see a Hybrid bus at St. Laurent Station close to 9am laying up between Stops C and D, while I was driving westbound on Hwy 417 -- I took a quick glance and want to say it was bus 5142, however as per Enviro_1203's post from Feb 4 (https://cptdb.ca/topic/19258-oc-transpo-orion-vii-hybrid-retirement-watch/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-886072), bus 5142 is not one of the remaining active unit left in service.
