  1. 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.

  3. 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!
  4. 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!

  7. 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!
  8. 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????

  10. Word of mouth spreads fast. As was hinted in the TTS 2015 Fan Trips thread, yes a TTC RTS charter has been planned for the end of February. I would like to stress that this charter is taking place at night whereas the TTS charter is taking place during the day, and the two charters will not necessarily be covering/touring the same areas of the city. So now there are two RTS charters, not intended to compete with one another but to provide double the opportunity. A select few like to throw words around like it's nobody's business. Keep those kinds of opinions to yourself, most of which are based on false assumptions and stereotypes. Don't want a flame war? Don't start one. With that out of the way, here's what was posted regarding the charter on Facebook, in more detail: With all the uncertainty surrounding the retirement of the TTC’s Nova Bus RTS buses, charter ideas have sprung up again. For those longing for a rush of nostalgia, there is a plan to take an RTS out to Scarborough, East York, and the eastern part of Downtown, mainly covering the routes that Danforth Garage operated with the RTS before it closed down in March 2002. Every effort will be made to charter a bus with a perfectly working Luminator MegaMax 2000 sign and no bike rack to replicate an RTS out of Danforth Garage in the late 1990s/early 2000s. Here are the details of the planned charter in point form: - Date: Saturday February 28th, 2015 - Duration: 4 to 6 hours (hoping for 6) - Start Time: 6 PM (but please try to arrive before 5:45 PM to sort out registration) - End Time: depends on duration – 10 PM, 11 PM, or 12 AM - Break: yes, if charter is 5 or 6 hours in duration; a coffee shop is located nearby for food and/or washrooms - Areas/routes being covered: Scarborough, East York, Downtown (east of Yonge) - Main focus of charter: routes operated by Danforth Garage prior to its closure - Pick-up and Drop-off Location: Ellesmere RT Station - Cost: $50 to $60, depends on attendance - Payment Method: cash, in person at pick-up location Ellesmere RT Station is easily accessible by subway or RT, has ample parking available at no cost (free on weekends) immediately next to the station on the east side (accessible from the east service road off Ellesmere Road), and reasonably accessible by bus (about 5 minutes walking distance from the nearest 95 York Mills bus stops on Ellesmere Road at the west service road). Kennedy Road is the nearest exit off of Highway 401. The pick-up location will be on the west side of the station under the Ellesmere Road bridge (the 95C bus stop is nearby, but the branch does not operate on weekends). For those driving, access to the pick-up location on the west side of the station from the parking lot on the east side of the station is via the station entrance (stairs down, tunnel, stairs up; a fare is not required to cross over to the other side). The original plan for this charter was for it to take place sometime in the summer, but because about half of the RTS buses have been pulled off the road and an increasing number are receiving Luminator Horizon designation signs, it was decided to have the charter before the beginning of next month (as it is feared even more will be withdrawn). If you are interested in/able to attend the charter, please indicate so in a reply below. Also feel free to ask any questions.
  11. 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: http://youtu.be/a9XdjF6lqIo If anyone is wondering we got permission from TTC corporate and they know what we are doing.
  12. 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.

  15. Friday, April 25th, 2014 will mark exactly 36 years of service for TTC subway operator Doug Fearon. It has also been confirmed by him that he has decided to do his final trip on the Yonge-University-Spadina line on this date. I will be there and others are invited to join. Alternatively you can join us on Monday, April 21st, 2014 Easter Monday on which he will also be operating. Details to follow. Doug was the first person to be featured in our documentary we released close to 3 months ago: http://youtu.be/Ckn9col0_rE A few weeks ago he also made a brief appearance on a segment on CTV news featuring our Virtual TTC Academy: toronto.ctvnews.ca/student-creates-ttc-train-simulator-that-puts-users-behind-the-wheel-1.1716477
  16. There's been a lot of talk this year about building new transit infrastructure in Toronto. However, the obstacle always comes down to: how are people going to pay for it? At the moment, there doesn't seem to be any real fiscal measures to raise funds for capital investments in the TTC. Even its operational costs are subsidized at such a small scale, it's laughable (no provincial funding.) That being said, what kind of strategy should be taken to really get the money flowing to build new subways, LRTs, streetcars, bus routes, etc? A few ideas I've heard in the past: -Increased property taxes -Regional gas tax -Regional sales tax

  19. Anyone know if it would be possible at all to try/tour the new Toronto Rocket simulator at the TTC. I think it would be really great to try the controls of the TR and get to see the 3D computer graphics that render the environment. The closest I have ever gotten is openBVE's free PC simulator. But the signals are not fully functional and the graphics aren't the best. Is there someone I can contact in regards to this? http://www.corys.com...ator--1748.html The simulator was also featured in Undercover Boss Canada episode 3, TTC.
  20. Hello, last week me and my friend released a new iPhone app - CG Transit. It offers offline trip planning in public transport systems of more than 20 Canadian and U.S. cities and European trains. Key features: - fast offline searching - advanced search parameters - changing the date and time, adding "via" stations, choosing transport modes, etc. - favorite locations and routes - displaying route on the map - finding connections in multiple schedules at once (e.g.,Toronto TTC and GO Transit) - push notifications of schedule updates and their immediate download You can download the app using the AppStore http://itunes.apple....48814?ls=1&mt=8 Thank you for your comments or suggestions!
