Up until recently, TTC ran an all high floor fleet so the incremental burden in maintaining heritage high floor cars wasn't crucial. Will that calculus change when regular service high floors are completely retired?

I think that the fact that they are high floor is immaterial in this. If the TTC wants to save them and operate them, they can and will find a way. If they don't, well......

I don't think we should be surprised that they're back down to 4 new cars on the 509. Training is resuming. 

Of course nextbus screwed up again with all the new routes introduced since last June is missing. We'll need the tracker to check what's running on the 514.

514 is back on Nextbus.

Only 4 cars on 509 - but also 4 Flexities on 514 as well.  So they've maintained 22 in service (with the 14 on 514).

edit - with rush hour over, dropped to 3 cars  on 509 and two on 514.

So the rush hour cars are the training cars.

This morning, it would seem.  But they seem to change up what they are doing every week.
