  1. I've been starting to notice more and more different transit in the media, either in the background of tv shows or movies, or in the forefront and featured, such as the GM Fishbowl in Speed or an HSR Classic in a commercial for ING Direct. Where have you seen transit in the media lately? In last week's issue of View Magazine, a comic called Weltschmerz takes place on a TTC streetcar.
  2. Here's a Columbia Transportation thread! A few notes: 2114-2118 have not been seen/tracked in a while. They may be headed to scrap 2143 is now the Manhattanville shuttle Bus, and tracks as 2115. It is NOT an NYU bus anymore @Orion6025 @GojiMet86 @Articulated @Cathay 888 @TTC T6H-5307N 2252 @Young or one of the other editors, could you change the status of 2143 from an NYU bus to a Columbia bus (Both operated by Academy, link here: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Academy_Bus_Lines#Fleet_Roster) Thanks!

  4. Hey folks, Thought I'd start a new discussion regarding the King Street transit pilot project being tested in downtown Toronto, since it would stray considerably from general streetcar news and discussion, as well as any other TTC discussion. Starting November 12th, 2017, the City of Toronto will initiate the project between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street. The project's main aims are to increase efficiency of transit along that particular stretch of King St., primarily improving the service of the 504 King Streetcar in the downtown core. The 504 King is the busiest streetcar route that the TTC offers, with over sixty five thousand in daily ridership. People and Transit are being given priority over vehicle traffic. Until this weekend, this stretch of King street was notorious for its awful efficiency both from transit and traffic perspectives. With over twenty thousand vehicles using the street for relatively local trips (which can be done via parallel streets), transit was getting clogged up. This resulted in uneven spacing between streetcars and the notorious "walking is faster than the TTC" statement. As of the 12th of November, cars are no longer permitted to drive straight through any intersections between Bathurst Street and Jarvis Street. They will only be allowed to turn right, and in few cases left as well, thus removing the use of King as a main thoroughfare. Exceptions to this include TTC vehicles, construction/service vehicles, emergency services, as well as taxis which are only permitted to drive through at certain times of the day. TTC streetcar stops have been moved to the opposite side of the intersections with protected waiting areas. Cyclists are permitted to continue through intersections as usual, abiding by the existing regulations. This project is a cost-effective way of easing traffic congestion along one of the main transit corridors in downtown Toronto, and there are further plans to implement this on other streets, such as Queen and Dundas Sts. Further plans are in place to construct public spaces along King in place of the on-street parking. These spaces would include, but are not limited to: bicycle parking, sidewalk cafes, open seating etc. Here are some links for you all to take a look at: Main Page: https://web.toronto.ca/city-government/planning-development/planning-studies-initiatives/king-street-pilot/ Overview: https://web.toronto.ca/city-government/planning-development/planning-studies-initiatives/king-street-pilot/king-street-transit-pilot-overview/ Informative Posters: https://web.toronto.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/968e-Police-Postcard_AODA.pdf Informational Brochures: https://web.toronto.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/9096-King-Street-Brochure_Oct25_Web.pdf So let's see what you all think of it? Questions? Suggestions/Criticisms? Or even your own adjustments? Let the discussion begin!

  6. Hey everyone, I want to ask owners of used buses, or just anyone how do you know if a transit company are going to sale their buses. I know there are dealerships but this one transit I know is most likely to retire their 98 D40LF' and 2003 C40LF's probably within the next few years. But, how can someone in the market for a used bus get notified of buses being sold. And in addition, how could anyone buy a brand new bus directly from the manufacturer like New Flyer, or Gillig for example. Thanks for reading.
  7. Can anyone tell me what pilot buses mean? It say for example on the TTC 8400-8504 or 9000-9026 page that 8400 and 9000 are pilot buses, what does that mean?
  8. With 2017 just around the corner tell me what vehicles your transit system you got in 2016 and which ones retired. OC Transpo: New buses: Alexander Dennis double decker buses and new GMC Para Transpo buses. Retired buses: none STO: New buses: Hybrid Novabuses both 40 and 60ft. Retired buses: Some old Classics.

  12. I couldn't find anything on this "photography forum" on school buses. I spotted this very old Crown school bus in good shape (from first looks) near Pier 70 in SF. I actually took this picture through the gate (which was quite difficult) and cropped it. Does anyone know what model this is at first looks?

  16. Hey all, I came up with a great idea for a Transit Based Trivia Game. Players answer an array of different transit related questions, For every right answer, you receive points, for wrong answers, players do not gain points. "Fun for fanners from 1 to 100!" Game types and Scoring Chart: Full Service: Each player receives 10 points for each right answer they answer correctly. First player to 100 points wins! Peak Service: Each player receives 10 points for each right answer they answer correctly. First player to 50 points wins! Extended Service: Each player receives 5 points for each right answer the answer correctly. First Player to 100 points wins! Leave you questions and comments about the game below.
  17. Mexican Motorcoach Buses Photos of motorcoaches used by charter & intercity bus companies in Mexico. Today, most motorcoaches in Mexico are from DINA, Marcopolo, Volvo, & Irizar. MCI & VanHool are very rare but do make appearances. ******************************************* This DINA Viaggio is from a Mexican charter bus company called Big State City. I took this photo back in summer 2010. Autopista Mexico Federal 49 (Cuota) Ciudad Jimenez, Chihuahua ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ A charter bus company called "Turismo Paba" owns this Irizar I5. I found this bus in Leon back in summer 2010. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************ This migth be the only MCI bus deep inside Mexico (not including the border areas) that I have seen so far (who knows, I must of missed some when I wasnt looking). I found this MCI E4500 from Turimex Internacional traveling on Mexico Federal Highway 49 in the state of Durango. I think this was near the town of Cuencame.
  18. Hello to all trolley bus enthusiasts, I have some Q's that needs A's, and I'll apologize in advance if this thread already exists. 1. What is the average age of these buses in a TA? 2. What is the FTA recommend age of the buses? 3. How much is the cost in setting up the infrastructure of the trolley bus? 4. Apart from SEPTA, MBTA, SF MUNI, Europe & Translink, who else has them? 5. Apart from the ETS, who used to have this kind of service? Any Responses to these questions would be very helpful.
