When ION launches rt. 2 will end at 7pm due to low ridership and rt. 27 trips past 9:30pm will be discontinued due to low ridership. 

Did see that coming lol. The 2 shouldn't exist, it doesn't have ridership neither does the 27. Both routes should be combined with anther route that actually has ridership.

When ION launches, does the LRT + Ion Bus replace the current iXpress route 200 in its entirety?

Oh, random note in case people didn't notice already but you can get the shiny new EasyGO Farecards now, even though they gave a release date of March 1. I was surprised I was able to get one last Thursday at Charles terminal

This guy apparently spotted one of our Hybrids in Grimsby - 60322332_10212739570838053_5990159551649 

 

Any idea what it's doing there? Getting decommissioned? 🤔

Question is why is it tipped over like that?

With GRT paperless how do visitors ride the system? Is this the dilemma TTC will have for day passes in the post-paper pass era?

day passes and tickets are now loaded on to the fare cards when you tap the transfer is loaded onto the fare card when you tp the card on the far box it will tell you how much time you have 

 

and it will also show you how much money you have on your fare card.

so not visitor friendly 

It is visitor friendly, as long as you do a little bit of research before you go. I don't know about you but if I go anywhere that I plan on taking transit I look up the different and valid fares, some routes I may need and other stuff that I may need on my trip.

All it takes is a little forethought.
