Post TTC Application (You've made it! Now let's talk!)

Recommended Posts

They are clearing it out and moving to Don Rdwy. I was told, (rumors) that it may give TTC room for buses or other storage space. I'm talking about the former bus bays, and not the office space where the Subway and Collectors currently are.


I think the magic number for a master on the transportation side is 100 ops. So if they cut 100 or add 100, it requires a master.

TTC decides which division you go to if you fail, they'll make you pay. You're better off passing and bidding to transfer after. Anyone that's stuck in collectors, this master will be parole for them. lol


I really hope it wont go through. Im too comfortable in the tunnels to go surface lol

Just put down Danforth and Wilson Sub.

That depends though, I have no interest in ever driving streetcars....if I was forced there I'd flunk on purpose cause nowhere they'd send me could be worse.... Just my opinion... I have enough under that that can't happen but that's what I'd do....

Lol you're a better person than I am...I'd be blowing switches the first day...

If your forced out you will have priority to transfer back over regular transfers into your previous division. Remember if you fail you have no say in where you go.

I believe MD and Eglinton are the most junior but as far as I'm concerned Arrow has the worst routes.

Concord is no longer on the table if you read the TTC report. So its not a rumor.

I don't know if Concord is dead but its supposed to be only temp as they were to lease it so we shall see....

I've talked to a few Operators who said thy thought Arrow was bad until they went to Wilson and got assaulted for the first time.

I find Bmount has the friendliest Operators.

Not like she had to do anything. Just take us all to union and watch us embarrass ourselves....

Luckily when I did it she wasn't there so we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you're referring to the master signup that's coming. You'll be able to go wherever there's space... If there was only space left in streetcar for instance you'd be going to streetcar. .

i can confirm that the bi weekly pocket planner is at roncy in the vending machines for $2. It only has the calender itself and the mini binder of union information is missing and would be available in the upcoming weeks

How soon, some people are saying it won't be until a certain amount of streetcars shows up. And TTC indicated 2017 for a bus garage, and that's an "if". I heard tapscott being another location.

April or May soon. Also from what I've been told it has nothing to do with streetcars, we weren't doing one when it was just Leslie. It's for the Scarborough garage. And everyone who bids to that garage will be going to mcnichol when it opens.
