Not likely. My guess is Maintenance related.

Not sure why 57 Bells Corners/Bayshore will be serving Stop 4B ?

All of these delays with the LRT are part of the teething process for any new system.

But during the testing period did they not simulate these types of situations? 

And keeping customers in the loop about delays should be a no brainier, but even the TTC has issues with that. 

I can never understand why letting people know about delays is so difficult.

Date effective: January 27, 2020

OC Transpo will run weekday S1 supplemental bus service on Monday, January 27 during peak periods due to fewer trains being available on O-Train Line 1.  To supplement these buses, targeted and temporary reductions on higher-frequency routes across the system are being made to minimize the impact on customers.   The list of cancelled trips is provided below.

Be careful out there guys. Lots of delays because of the snow. My driver on Route 85 decided to drive into the snowbank, causing the trailer to become stuck so I had to take the 57 instead.

Are you saying the driver made a deliberate decision to drive into a snowbank?

Thats quite an accusation considering there are many drivers on the board.

I agree. Perhaps it appeared to you(where you where sitting/standing)that it appeared he drove into the snow bank where as the driver's bus might slide into the snow bank that the driver could not control?

I'm not saying he did it deliberately per say, but he definitely failed to exercise the basic common sense that I've seen every other OC driver do after snow storms, which is don't pull over all the way to the side where there are snowbank and no, he didn't lose control otherwise I would have felt it as I was sitting at the very back.

You are still making unfounded accusations against the driver in saying he lacked basic common sense.

All this is only your opinion and you are passing it off as fact.
