I forgot to put this here Wednesday (Grade 9 is busy, you can’t blame me), but at around 2:10PM on Wednesday, I saw an RT loaded on a truck heading eastbound on the 401 just after Leslie Street. Because of traffic due to a 2 car and truck collision, I didn’t get to see where exactly it went.

3731 did a run on the 28 Bayview South on January 30th. This  link posting is proof for wiki update.

Honestly, without additional clarifications, the statement "The TTC will initially deploy its battery-electric buses on routes that are 75km in length or shorter" is completely meaningless, so I'm not sure why the wiki only specifies routes that the buses have already appeared on.

There is no route at the TTC which comes even close to being 75 km in length for a single trip. Not even a roundtrip on the 300A is that long! What does it mean that the vehicle won't run on a route over 75 km in length? What routes are being excluded here?

They mean overall runs that are 75km in length. Like the amount of distance the bus covers in a shift. Typical PR communications watering the message down until it means something different.

Originally it meant rush hour runs on the 35 Jane would are 2.5 round trips plus deadheading distance which adds up to almost 75km.

That restriction is long gone. They deployed on runs like the 46/396 morning run starting late summer which totals ~120 km and over 5 hours.

Out of Service (in Malvern Division)

If y’all don’t physically like that (I want to see at least one heart), I’d be very disappointed especially because it’s time taken of my ETA to school, library, or my own house. What I mean is I’m literally taking time out of walk to anywhere out of the examples to take pictures for here and my Instagram @gtatransit_photography, so the likes will at least thank me. Yes I know it’s all Nova because that’s what Malvern is becoming.

Looks like the streetcar shortage continues. Buses running 508 Lake Shore. I saw one at Long Branch around 7:15 that I thought was an 81xx, but Transsee shows a couple of 82xx buses on the route.

I have a terrible memory for random four digit numbers. :unsure:
