  1. The commission has to appease Edmonton or the whole thing falls apart.
  2. Leduc's Arbocs are 2014s, same as the New Flyer Xcelsiors.
  3. Looking at start up by March 2023. In the meantime have contracted WSP to do a network and bottom up costing analysis building on the work that EY did in 2019/2020. The WSP report will then feed an ETS analysis of what it means to them in terms on routes, assets and most importantly costs. Edmonton Council is having trepidations on the true costs of the EMTSC service, and rightly so. The EY report had Edmonton subsidizing many of the commuter services as the regional municipalities were informed that they would receive the same or more service for no additional costs. Nothing is free so not sure how a municipality, like Beaumont, could get more service without additional costs, unless Edmonton is footing the bill.
  4. Not sure about that… those express trips were 5 hrs vs the 6 to 7hrs long local trips. First bus out is not always best. Locals were always integrated into the Toronto-Peterborough service. The local portion of the trips between Peterborough and Ottawa kept running for two reasons: protecting the operating authority and freight. Running hwys 7-37-401 when you pay mileage makes sense.
  5. Can you share some insight here? Based on historical scheduling from Greyhound and Voyageur Colonial, the express services have always been the bread and butter.
  6. Yes. From their website: https://riderexpress.ca/locations/ Select Kingston.
  7. https://mybreakride.ca/ - associated with the Ebus/RedArrow Betterez tickering portal.
  8. That’s some great writing. How do you explain the departure from their recently approved service strategy?
  9. PWT is operating Spruce Grove's on-demand service.
  10. The Beaumont buses were stored at the PWTransit site around Roper Road since January. PWT will store and maintain the buses. ETS took their fareboxes out.
  11. Heard there were four sections that failed and it will be 18 months before fixed.
  12. https://www.edmonton.ca/documents/PDF/Accelerating_Transit_in_Edmonton_Metropolitan_Region.pdf Thoughts on this?
  13. Looks like those could be converted deadhead movements. Unsure about the Win-Lon trip though. https://atu1415.ca/system/files/london-windsor_feb_3_2019.pdf Uwe
