In any case I don't think it can be considered to be "rapid" transit when a bicycle is faster. 

You got to put it this way, a bicycle has the ability to go around traffic, on the sidewalk, on local streets. Buses however, unless the roads closed or a detour is necessitated has to sit in mixed traffic.

BRT has dedicated lanes. I think the issue is the lack of transit signal prioritization along the BRT route. Dedicated bus lanes are useless if they have to stop at red lights.

I don't understand the point of another new terminal. Also Pre pandemic service should have been brought back right now since go bus workers may go on strike then local services may be very crowded.

They should consider adding artics to the 4 Major Mackenzie. One trip on Saturday (Bus #518) was so delayed on the 4A (Pine Valley - Woodbine) that it was running basically an hour behind.

Sunday 90 service doesn't really need artics (maybe one just in case) but the trip was basically empty.

Yet it sucks there's no mention of reinstating any of the cancelled routes even in light of a upcoming GO Transit strike.

Like many other agencies in the GTA, does YRT have the manpower to reinstate any additional service in the event of a GO Transit strike?  I think that if the strike does happen many agencies will be canibalizing drivers from other routes to run supplementary service or switch to artics if they're available.  I don't know how feasible it is for most agencies to add supplemental service on the fly like that for an extended period of time.

Major Mackenzie is on the list for potential routes for articulated buses along with rapid transit. At the same time, they seem really stretched thin on resources focusing on the status quo unless told by the region to reduce costs. Considering plans for certain corridors are already completed. Just a lack of funding for conversion and day to day operations is the barrier.

I don't think YRT has any additional resources in the event of a Go Transit strike. Considering that Blue and Purple/Purple A do operate with articulated buses every day including holidays. Orange can operate with articulated buses if required and the last time it was done is during the first few months of COVID-19 to ensure physical distancing due to seating restrictions. 

It all depends on their spare board.

they actually slapped artics on both Pink and Green as well.

I mean all they do is "cut cut cut". Other agencies even DRT managed to increase service even with a fraction of the fleet size.

It is 8203 which was involved in an accident on Purple back in late 2020 and retired early.

To replace the glass alone is probably a few thousand dollars plus labour. The body work isn't that bad but the door needs to be replaced. The articulated joint will likely need to be overhauled.  It's cheaper than buying a new one....

In the event the current CUPE strike happens on Monday, all 4xx's routes are not running. The paddles that started or interlined with those routes would just run their regular routes. For example the bus that does the 450/99/98E would just effectively run the 99 and 98E (omitting the 450).

Do believe it was hit by a truck.

I was checking out the schedules for SE division’s trips on Transsee for this board period. I find it a bit odd, but a lot of the runs for routes that end at Cornell and also routes that end at Finch switch routes partway through the block. For example, 1113 began today on the first EB trip for route 2, switched to route 16, then back to route 2 later in the evening. A lot of the schedule blocks are similar and on weekends routes 1/2/16 trade buses partway through, and the same for weekdays between routes 1/14/16/25. 

Also maybe it’s coincidental, but I also noticed a lot of the longer runs end up having the long break that was seen in board periods prior to September, usually between the route switch. Maybe it’s a more effective way to give the drivers a break rather than sending out a new bus/driver to do one trip?

At least some if not most school specials did run today, albeit empty and some possibly signed Not in Service.
