  1. Similar to the GM fleet reminiscing, I created this thread to share the memories and photos of your experience with the TTC's non-GM Fishbowl fleet prior to 2002 such as Classics, Flyers, New Flyers, Orions (I, II, III, V, VI and pre-refurbished VII), and NovaBUS RTS. If anyone has photos prior to December 31, 2016, feel free to post your old photos from old shoe boxes, slides, even library microfiche or whatever is there. Just don't claim that they are your own if they are not. The following photos are sampled below from my collection: Thanks to @Grapejuice for this inspiration for this thread.
  2. Hello all, Was scrolling around and didn't find a forum for this. (correct and/or redirect me if i'm wrong, and don't get TOOOOO mad) Does anyone know when these buses will be deployed? Thanks TTC9432
  3. Looks like TTC is looking for manufacturers for a future bus order. Future TTC Bus order Document request list Here R32PA16809 - FUTURE BUS PROCUREMENT OF TTC BUSES The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is seeking an expression of interest in order to identify and obtain information from firms interested in participating with future bus purchases. The TTC currently operates and maintains a fleet of approximately 2,000 buses to support the movement of its customers across the Greater Toronto Area. A move to steady state procurement has been implemented and the TTC plans on purchasing approximately 120 buses annually.
  4. North of Eglinton Station, a center track is provided where trains can move towards it rather than north towards Lawrence station. Interlock signals which lead to the center track can set the path to the center track by signaling a double yellow signal. However, unlike most center tracks, the Eglinton Center track is effectively a dead-end tail track and can never be used for normal service. Trains at Eglinton Station can pull into the tailtrack from both the northbound and the southbound platform. Unlike most cases where a train is headed to a dead-end track, the train is given a double-yellow signal, which is one of the possible "proceed" signals from the northbound platform [signal N338, X54] and the only "proceed" signal from the southbound platform [signal NA338, X58] other than the call-on. There are around two red signals further down the center track. Most interlock signals which lead to a dead-end track require a train to be called on to pull into, such as one of the three Finch tailtracks. Furthermore, there is a lunar signal on both signals, which is only used if the train is headed into the dead-end center track, implying that the center track constitutes a grade-timed block and the first red signal after will flash and evolve into a yellow signal. I first had the impression of that center track during my childhood when my father came to view the subway tunnel with me - that was before the TR era. All three tracks use tube tunnels [similar to the Finch West center track]. Since I use the TTC everyday to commute to university and work [usually 3 days a week] for over a year, where I use most of the Yonge portion of Line 1, I only saw the Eglinton center track used three times. Hence, it is used quite rarely, considerably less than the tailtracks beyond each terminal station. In fact, in the first instance I saw [early August 2018] I was actually riding on a train which has been declared out of service just before it reaches Eglinton station, where everyone is forced out of the train, and the train heads into the center track to reverse through a double-yellow. In the second instance [November 30 2018 @ 12:30pm] a track-level injury had occurred and service between Eglinton and Bloor had been shut off. The northbound train that arrived at Eglinton just before the announcement was forced into the center track through the double-yellow. In the third occurrence, the train went out of service around Davisville station. I believe that the same train went into the center track. I only saw the double-yellow signal used on the northbound signal just twice, and never saw the NA338 signal being used. Attached is a diagram which labels the layout of the Eglinton center track in my impression and observation, and another instance of a 'normal' center track. I have a major question regarding the use of this center track: Under which circumstance is this center track used, and how often is this dead-end center track used compared to an ordinary center track such as the one north of York Mills? I am wondering if the center track is more often used in the past, and how the center track is used nowadays. Do TTC operators record and log instances where the center track is used? How long is that tail track? Is there any emergency exit in that tail track?

  6. Can anyone assist (or know someone who can) with any of the following three historical questions about the APTA Bus Roadeos and TTC: 1) When was the 1st Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Bus Operator Roadeo held and who won? 2) Would anyone have the overall results when Toronto hosted the APTA Bus Roadeo in 1978 and 1991? 3) Would you know anyone who might have the overall results of TTC members who have participated in the APTA International Bus Roadeo since 1976? See attached file of what information is missing. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) Bus Roadeo.xlsx
  7. With construction of the new McNicoll bus garage, feel free to share photos and discuss the status about the TTC's newest garage/division slated to open next year. A few photos, coutersy of Buttcon In the January 2019 report, a master signup is slated to occur this year with a number of routes being shuffled around. Along with that, Julie Schram supplied a few photos of the garage under construction.
  8. Mine is obviously 14 Glencairn. I just saw 1001 go by on it. It's because I live on Glencairn Ave. and see the 14 go by everyday, and it's been my dream to drive a 14 since i was little. Mount Dennis, here I come!

  10. This thread is about buses close to retirement, and more so, about when and where to see and ride them in their final days. Mostly this thread should focus on the GTA, however some buses are harder to find than others, and might be further away, so this thread is open to all sightings. First question on this thread: Where can one still ride Orion V's????
  11. Hello all, Does anyone know where to get model TTC Transit buses like this? Doesn't matter what model. I am currently trying to make a model TTC garage. Just wondering if anyone else has these and are willing to sell them or say where they got them. I already know about the model fishbowls and have a couple.

  13. Hello everyone, the 5th Year Anniversary runs for the Virtual TTC Academy will be happening on December 28, 2017. If we do not get enough people for these runs, the TTC Academy might be shut down due to a large number of inactive operators. The runs are already posted on the run sheet, but here is a preview of the runs. SHY-DM-SHY X2 (Line 4) - 15:00 Eastern Time Zone KN-KIP (Line 2) - 17:00 Eastern Time Zone FN-SHW (Line 1) - 19:00 Eastern Time Zone Sign Up For The Academy Here: http://bit.ly/TTCAcademy -- About The Academy The Virtual TTC Academy is a place where transit enthusiasts can simulate 3 out of the 4 of the TTC subway lines together.

  14. The Virtual TTC Acadamy is a place where transit enthusiasts can simulate 3 out of the 4 of the TTC subway lines together. A video about the academy: The Virtual TTC Academy hosted by T2P Films allows transit enthusiasts to get together and simulate virtual Toronto subway operations in the open source train simulator OpenBVE using only TeamSpeak and a web browser. We do runs on the Yonge-University-Spadina, Bloor-Danforth and Sheppard subway lines. Starting today the Virtual TTC Acadamy will be offering the Montreal STM Orange for operators to try all of this week. If you have any questions about the Virtual TTC Acadamy please post them below. Hope to see some new people on the line!
  15. 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?
  16. I noticed ATC is up in running between Yorkdale and Dupont. Here is a video I put together:

  18. I just received the call for my start date. I start training Aug. 22, mode is Bus and my division is #8 Malvern. If anyone has experience at this division I would appreciate you sharing any advice you may have. I haven't posted on here before, but have found this forum a very helpful resource and wanted to thank everyone for posting here. As I didn't know anyone working for the TTC this has been a great place to read and find answers to many questions. Thank you! The process was longer than I would have expected. As such I thought it would be helpful to post a timeline for the stages that was my experience in hopes of it helping others. Jan 8, 2016 - Online Application March 5, 2016 - Information Session ( I answered 40 questions or so and found it pretty simple . ADVICE - Follow the instructions, listen and read) April 6, 2016 - Email from TTC for interview April 15, 2016 - Completed Job Shadowing I completed the entire thing in one night. I had never been on a TTC bus and found it good time to talk to drivers and get to know if the job was for me. It may not be necessary to complete it as others have said here you could write it out without going on the routes, but I found it helpful. April 25, 2016 - TTC interview . On arriving forst thing they want to see is the requested documents (education diplomas, abstract, completed job shadow ect). Then completed police background check form. Interview - 12 questions based on you giving specific examples from your past work history. I also handed them my list of work references. May 9, 2016 - All my references were contacted. They were all asked the same questions about my sick time, work ethic etc. May 18, 2016 -Received and signed Conditional Job offer via email - Added to hiring "Pool B" May 19, 2016 - Medical Appointment - Crazy amount of paperwork. Filled out 10 forms before going and then another 20 once there. Nothing crazy here. Physical testing involved pushing and pulling a weighted cart etc. Hearing, vision tests, drug urine test and then a physical with the doctor. June 25, 2016 - Received letter from Toronto police requesting I make an appointment for fingerprinting. I later learned from them that this is unusual and was because my date of birth was the same as somebody else who had a record. July 8. 2016 - Attended fingerprint session with Toronto Police July 18, 2016 - Received CLEAR vulnerable sector check form in mail July 15, 2016 - Received phone call and email confirming Documentation session time and date July 27, 2016 - Attended documentation session Sized for uniforms and completed forms and submitted another copy of abstract. Aug 4, 2016 - TTC Human Resources called with Start date, Divison and mode. Start work August 22 2016! Hope this is of help to anyone involved in the process and please feel free to ask any questions. Best of luck to all!
  19. Hello everyone, I need some information regarding where certain new looks might have been allocated from 1988 - 2012 when they were retired. Rapido is creating new look models for sale by the TTC and my father is reaching his 30th anniversary with the TTC in January 2018. I was planning on getting him one to mark his 30 years as an operator and wanted to potentially get the number of a bus he likely would have drove on it. Any idea if the following were at Birchmount division from 1988 up until their retirement? -2078 -2085 -2091 -2150 -2153 Thanks in advance!

  21. Hello Everyone! I was wondering if the TTC will be having their Harvey & Duncan Open house again this year. If so, when do they usually set dates? Hoping to get a glimpse of the Gm T6H-5307N New look. Hopefully they finish but I doubt they will. :/ Thanks!
  22. My co-producer Alex from SkyRail Productions and myself have been working hard on a TTC documentary this summer. The documentary will feature 7-11 TTC subway operators, 4 tower/transit controllers from transit control, a subway line mechanic and supervisor. We have completed our filming and currently in the editing stage. Here is our introduction video to the production to be released this fall: If anyone is wondering we got permission from TTC corporate and they know what we are doing.
  23. In Timmins there is news that at the main terminal druggies and drug dealers have become such a problem that they have chosen to close the washrooms fully to the public, except when the ONTC bus comes in and just open it for them. I chose to ask the question to TTC users and find out how TTC prevents and fights a issue such as this with their multitude of public washrooms in a multitude of stations in Toronto.
