TTC

3525 is on the 10 Van Horne

Looking at Transsee data, it appears 1243 broke down not long into PM rush, leaving the 10 with 2 buses. 3525 was probably a RAD bus from Malvern and was in the area, so it filled in for the latter part of the rush hour.

I noticed when passing by on Don Mills at 5:10 or so the Next Bus signs were displaying the next 10s arriving in 12 and 22 minutes, which definitely indicates a missing bus on the route.

Seems TTC is running 186 and 996 today. Some buses are signed 186 Wilson Rocket others 996 Wilson Express. Some stops are signed 186, others 996.

Some buses were reprogrammed for 996 and others weren't. Simple. Next board starts this Sunday, so they are obviously getting a head start

Some of the stops were changed to 996 for several months while the rest should be changed very soon.

I think the destination signs get updated seperately. When BM got the 902 and 924 half of us were doing 24E and some had 924 signs. Some were doing 102 short turns signs to sheppard with express and others were doing just the express sign. Got fixed a week or two after.

 

edit: also stops take the longest to update. a few 924 stops are still listed as 24E last time I was on vp.

Yeah, I think I saw 3525 on the 133 too (but the person who did the TTC 133 Neilson wiki doesn’t really know that this types of buses are on the 133 yet, or he/she does but never found the time to edit it in)

I might have missed a few routes when I was editing those pages but I finished editing the rest of the Malvern route pages that don't have "Nova Bus LFS HEV" on it.

Ever thought that when it was edited, the buses that were on it then either don't exist now or didn't exist then? Plus, garage movements

7954 and 7938 are on 24 Victoria Park. Are these buses moving to Birchmount?

They’re already allocated to Birchmount. One was on Jones. Another on Pape, and a third was on Parliament. All before the pm rush

Everything from 7937 to 7956 (with the exception of 7939 since its retired) are at Birchmount.

Yep, they’re at Birchmount (see my post on Today’s Sightings, mostly look at Other/Wheel-Trans as proof)

4572 was on 510 Spadina yesterday. The special part was that along with the destination sign stating TO UNION STN, it was followed by GO RAPTORS GO!! I only noticed this on the rear sign as I drove behind the car

Well I guess it’s about all the Raptors commotion that’s going on around Toronto. I following this trend too (what I mean by that is I’m watching every game). I guess it’s say the TTC is a big fan of the Raptors too.
