  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. 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.
  5. Looks like the DRL is alive and well. http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=1230770 I support the Yonge Extension, but I honestly do not think enough is being done to mitigate the extra riders. I think City Council sees this. The DRL would do a lot to relieve ridership on the Yonge Line.
  6. Calling all TTC transfer collectors! Please feel free to include scans/pictures of TTC bus/streetcar transfers in this thread. I’m trying to collect all the routes, and I’m missing a few, especially blue night. If you have any blue night transfers please add to this thread. Discontinued routes are also welcomed but I am interested in any TTC transfer.
  7. Inspired by the TTC Transfers thread and noticing there's been relatively little discussion on these in recent years, I've been thinking of starting a thread for these for some time. As we all know, TTC rollsigns can go for quite a bit of money and are not easy to come by, but fortunately thousands were made over the decades and a decent number were saved from ending up in the trash. Luckily I've come across a good number of them over the years but have been curious to see what other examples are out there. It's interesting to see all of the division changes, rare exposures, and route additions, renamings, and renumberings that have taken place over time. Of course, many examples of these are featured on Rollsign Gallery and Transit Toronto. Do you have any rollsigns in your TTC memorabilia collection? Feel free to share any images and/or information about them down below. I'll start with a common one that most will recognize, a side sign I used to have from one of the trolley buses. only this one features a few monochrome exposures that replaced tri-colour ones when the Nortown route was split into separate west and east routes, 61 and 103 respectively in 1985:
  8. 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.
  9. To prevent spam on other threads and considering the hybrid/electric buses don’t have a moment thread, I’m taking initiative to create one. I will add the fleet numbers, garages, etc later. Let’s please move the chatter here.
  10. Hi y'all, so i got some destination signs off of some busses for sale. I got 4 signs in total for sale: Luminator Matrix Max 7x90 Flip-Dot Side sign Luminator Horizon Titan 24x200 LED Front Sign (Ex-OCTRANSPO Orion VII NG) Luminator Horizon 8x96 LED Side Sign (Ex-TTC Orion VII NG HEV) Luminator Horizon 16x48 LED Rear Sign (Ex OCTRANSPO Orion VII NG) Any inquiries send me an email at bryc3.bw@gmail.com or @t.o_transit_photos on instagram. Happy new years and stay safe! Also forgot to say that yes I am willing to ship out signs cross-country
  11. Hi since these are planned to be delivered this year I’ve created this topic for when the New Flyers are being delivered and put into service at the TTC
  12. I've been waiting for a response from the TTC after doing the medical, passing the criminal record check, sending all of my information and the assignment. Does the TTC contact you if you don't get the job
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. Here is our first episode of the series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfDjNU6S2lE Any other race ideas using transit only we could consider?
  16. The TTC 509 route for Metro Simulator has been released. What do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29BU-owMZJE
  17. 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
  18. 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

  20. 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????

  24. 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!
