Driver Training going on today with 60 footers on various parts of the transitway downtown. I think they skipped the part on how to properly jackknife a bus in today's weather. :ph34r:

Apparently there are a lot of Orion 6 and invero has the home show advertisement. Also there is another roofline wrap advertising a floor and carpet companing in Westboro. I forgot the fleet number.

Finally a GMC paratranspo bus broke down. This time I couldn't see the number as the bus was on highway 417 while I was near the 417 bridge waiting for my bus.

You did your best, JCL. I try not to take moving shots with my P&S camera due to light exposure during cloudy period, which tends to blur.

What kind of camera do you have?

My P&S is generally pretty good with moving shots. I guess it depends on your camera, too. (Mine is an HP Photosmart M637)

you should be glad that you don't have to deal with the snow. Anyways, it seems there is a severe delay on all the surface routes.

I guess that all artics were parked all weekend, although they will have fun tomorrow because lot's of areas will likely be filled of snow not to mention the snowbanks. Expect a few stuck buses tommorrow.

I am sure the city workers will try their best in removing the snow. It may be a wise idea to use double decker buses.

I passed by St. Laurent Garage today. 9213 (iirc) and one d60LF have not been moved for quite some time (judging by the amount of snow covered half of the engine cover.
