TTC New Vehicle Installations/Unusual equipments


Recommended Posts

I've seen an interesting thing on the internal LED display on a 905 Eglinton East today. it had, slightly smaller font, [ROT], displayed in the right corner as the display scrolls thru the various pieces of info, and then in front when it scrolls the upcoming stop, like [ROT] Eglinton Ave & Markham Ave, etc...

Unfortunately I noticed it too late to safely take a picture as I was getting off, but I saw this sequence a couple of times. What could it mean? What comes to mind is short for Route On Time, indicating the bus is on time.

TTC 9239 spotted today with mirror turn signal indicators.  I wonder why these weren’t included on the recent Nova LFS buses that were rebuilt?

There are a couple of McNicoll's 9200s that have been refitted with them that I have spotted over the past two weeks.

Plastic seats on 8734. And believe me, those seats are not comfortable at all!

I had a chance to ride that bus in the summer, and yup, not comfortable at all.  It also posed a little bit of a safety hazard on my ride.  I had a driver who liked to make turns at high speeds, and while it's normal for someone to lose balance and fall over their seat, it's a lot easier for someone to slip off their seat with these plastic surfaces - as is what happened to me.  Not only that, but that same driver I had also liked to brake hard, and it was easy for me to slide forward off my seat.  I could've grounded myself a little better had these been fabric seats as there's more friction between me/my clothes and the fabric surface of the seat vs. the plastic surface on these seats.

Any who, I noticed there were survey QR codes posted on the interior ad rack in this bus, so I filled one out and submitted my negative review about these seats.

Next time you should grab a pic of the QR code and post it here, so we can all tell management how stupid the idea is.

They're busy looking at all the wrong places to be trying to save $$$.

A friend of mine saw 3648 today on 95 York Mills and it has a Apex 2 (“new bike rack”) once again.

Here is a pic of it when it had the old rack

New emergency exit signs on TTC 1082. Only the back corner window on the door side was like this, the other windows still had the red ones.

Hmm...I recall seeing these on other Orion OGs a few years ago (including some of the EGRs) before I learned of this discussion board, but I could be wrong?

You can always go to the ttc website and give your feedback on these seats. The more people who actually tell the TTC their opinion the better it would be.  Posting only online will do nothing.  I also rode this bus and the seats ae horrible and when the bus turns or brakes fast, you slide on the seat
