(kind of like the argument TTC is using to retire the T1s)

...unlike all other cars in TTC history...

The trains came starting in 2019 and have been sitting for 3-5 years not in revenue service.

At this point with all the delays and push backs, The Eglinton LRVs are gonna retire before they can even enter service.

Metrolinx put out a notice advising of software and control system testing that would occur today, resulting in an increase of active LRVs. I was around Eglinton Ave East this afternoon and based on how often I was seeing the LRVs passing by, it seems like they might have been simulating service level frequencies.

That's reassuring news on this long suffering project. Hopefully this means we'll be closer to a date then we were before.

Don't know if this was mentioned but a recent video showcasing a private tour of Mount Dennis station shows the big route sign at the bus terminal and 935 is absent from the board which must mean the TTC saw sense and will no longer be routing the 935 through Mount Dennis station. Makes total sense since under current proposals, at the Jane and Eglinton intersection, you'd be able to make transfers to any of the 27, 32, 35 and 73 running through the area to continue on to MtD Station. You'd never be waiting for a connection for very long if ever. Just didn't make much sense to make the 935's schedule and routing worse just for a one seat connection. Most people using the express want fast service on Jane Street so it makes sense to keep its routing unchanged

We actually been through this a few times. Since 2022, the 935 won't go to Mount Dennis Station. The only post ASP 2022 change is the 73B extends to replaces the Emmett bus and there will be a 901 Airport bus to connect to Line 5.

Metrolinx is not renaming Ontario Science Centre at this time:

https://globalnews.ca/news/10576942/science-centre-rename-eglinton-lrt/

For those wondering what the alternative names considered were, here is the short list:

  • Concorde
  • Industrial District
  • Olympia Square
  • Don Valley
  • Ferrand
  • Don River

Final comments:

Don Valley would probably be a better replacement name which references the area. Ferrand is a side street which might be confusing if someone is looking for Don Mills Road.

Surprised the most obvious choice "Eglinton – Don Mills" isn't on the list, can't go wrong with that one.
