To sum up the vehicle deliveries to the east end for testing:

6252 delivered on May 25

6254 delivered on May 26

6256 delivered on May 27

6255 delivered on May 31

6244 delivered on June 1

6246 delivered on June 2

Cars 6252, 6256 & 6244 were delivered with the A end facing west and the B end facing east.

Cars 6254, 6255 & 6246 were delivered with the opposite orientation - meaning that these three latter cars were driven "backwards" from the offloading area at Rosemount to the storage area at Laird.

All six cars are currently stored in the underground area west of Leslie Street.

Why do all the at grade level stops have MBTA-like logos on them instead of TTC logos?  The MBTA logo (pictured here) is a black T in a white circle outlined in black, whereas what’s on the stops here in Toronto is the reverse - a white T in a black circle.

I’m assuming that is the case because TTC is not the service provider. TTC will provide operators to the line, but ultimately Metrolinx is providing the service

It’s metrolinx’ Universal symbol of Transit for any metrolinx built project going forward.

it’s meant to be the roundle of the GTHA.

Metrolinx is also working with municipal transit agencies to implement their wayfinding practices, pilots that incorporated local agencies include Finch GO terminal, Pickering Parkway Terminal, and Hamilton GO Centre

I find it hilarious that they basically copied the MTBA logo and switched the black and white around.  Lazy and irresponsible on their part if you ask me.

And confusing from the perspective of a passenger who doesn’t know that this is a Metrolinx owned & operated line.

Is it laziness and plagiarism? Sure.

But how is it confusing?

-Stand at stop.

-train comes. 
 

-get on train.

-tap card, card goes beep.

Nobody cares what logo is over the doorway.

Consideing the Metrolinx Logo is on each of the station posts, and, it gets a bigger logo than the ttc does on the trains, I assume most people will eventually get it.

the Goal is that the T logo will eventually be on every piece of Transit infrastructure in the GTHA.

I like the former Chevrons of the pilot, the T is just meh, but I wouldn’t say they copied any one agency, there’s a number of agencies that use a T to symbolize Transit, MTBA and Vancouver at just two examples. It’s a T, it’s not like were putting up “metropolitan” signs outside our stations and Roundells on our buses.

This is not quite completely correct.

 

Metrolinx will own the line, and be in charge of all facilities maintenance for the first 30 years of operation - which they have handed over to the Crosslinx consortium.

 

But EVERYTHING to do with operation - day-to-day upkeep, service levels, supervision, not to mention operators - will be handled by the TTC. For all intents and purposes, this is a TTC line - just not owned by them.

Which means that individual line signage will be even more important, to separate a grade-separated rapid transit line from a bus shelter or a jitney.

Given all that, it’s a shame they settled for something so mediocre.

I guess Hollywood isn’t the only place an original idea would die of loneliness.
