Just waiting till TTC staff reports hybrids are still lemons! I don't think TTC would have gotten them if the board and council wasn't pushing so hard.

I wonder how the Electrics will do...

But if they do report that these Hybrids are still not reliable earlier, I wonder if it's not to late to change the specs on this batch...

Last Monday, I was on TTC route 68A run 4 (didn't catch the vehicle number) and the operator was smart enough to downshift to 3rd gear max in slippery conditions (and even turn on performance mode). Whether he remembered something from training or figured out how to use the shift selector I don't know, but definitely something most operators don't do regularly.

And today, there were three LFS hybrids on route 939 in the evening (earlier this week there was no more than one), including this one, 3417 on route 939B, run 11 from Finch West station:

They re deploy them on “flat” routes regardless of passenger demand, rather than risk stranding in inclement weather such as this.

Oh ok, I thought that might have been why since I have lived in the area I've noticed the plows don't get to the streets for a day or so, though old finch is slightly better due to the amount of morning and later afternoon traffic
