You also missed the 170 Emmett that will replace the 32D.

As I said in my post:

It lists the preliminary plan for bus routes connecting to the Eglinton LRT. Some of these are already known form previous documents but there are a few interesting in it as well, which I'll list below:

170 Emmett has already been known from previous documents, such as the Metrolinx document that show all the routes terminating at Mount Dennis Station. This is why I didn't mention it along with all the other routes terminating at Mount Dennis except for those that have had some changes to them (renumbering 19 to 27, 195 operating both north and south of Eglinton).

So is the 51/56 merge. There was a plan to merge the 5/61 too but it looks like it didn't happen. It's all under TTC connections in the original EA

THe 51/56 merge appeared on both pdfs while the 5/61 only appeared in the appendix. Everything else in this new report appeared as described in the EA with new route numbers. Nothing surprising.

Second page: http://thecrosstown.ca/sites/default/files/pdf/reports/Crosstown-LRT-Environmental-Project-Report/chapter-3-project-description-sections-3-1-to-3-4.pdf

Page 19 of this appendix states the 5/61 would be combined: http://thecrosstown.ca/sites/default/files/pdf/reports/Crosstown-LRT-Environmental-Project-Report/appendixn-travel-demand-forecasting-report.pdf

Bonus read:

Page 6 of this appendix shows TTC's proposed changed for the Spadina subway extension back in 2006: http://www.vivanext.com/files/EnvironmentalAssessments/SpadinaExtension/M_TravelDemandForecastReport.PDF

And if people are wondering why Pioneer Village needs 12 bus bays (page 257): http://www.vivanext.com/files/EnvironmentalAssessments/SpadinaExtension/EnvironmentalAssessment.pdf

In both cases (Mt Dennis and Pioneer Village), TTC extended all the routes nearby the for a major hub.

When today? I haven't seen any reports, and I thought Eglinton was still closed.

http://m.thestar.com/#/article/news/gta/2016/04/19/demolition-at-eglinton-crosstown-sites-resumes-after-collapse.html

The article has been updated since my last post - initially it stated demolition resumed but did not list the exceptions, now corrected to all sites except Bayview (expected to resume by tomorrow). No update on Bathurst/Forest Hill.

So any word on when the demolition of the old Eglinton bus bays will happen if it hasn't already happened?

IIRC, its still currently stands as it is. I went by last year and it remains intact.

So I see that things above ground are moving along. There has been a lot of drilling in the Eglinton and Victoria Park area lately in preparation for the start of construction.

They're just sampling the soil (geotechnical engineering work). Real construction work won't happen till 2018.

That photo was taken from the mezzanine on the TTC line and depicts the car in the final station prior to check & test. The two lines run parallel to each other separated by the green aisle. If you look closely at the front you can see the shunting cart hooked to the massive couplers these cars have.

Would you happen to know what the final livery will look like?
