Has someone sat down to explain the difference between what a pantograph is and what overhead wire is to the person who designed the notice?  Honestly, for a place that plastered the 2017 APTA winner stuff all over the place and has a professional corporate communications department, schoolboy mistakes like this shouldn't be making it past proofreading into print.

Apart from railfans, does this particular error matter to anyone?

It does matter because mistakes do no favors for the company's image, and will only breed more mistakes.

This one my not matter but it's indicative of sloppiness. If you let a lackidasical attitude towards public information develop, more, and more serious, mistakes will happen.  That's why I'm being as stickler for details. Mistakes need to be caught and fixed before publication, and the TTC needs a process in place to do that.

This is exactly what ETS is like. I've always maintained that 'It is not an ETS publication if it doesn't have a mistake in it'. 

Myself and others (here in Edmonton) even joke tongue-in-cheek about it, referring to the ETS communications dept as the ECD (Effective Communications Department).

When I’m putting the brakes back on the bus you’ll be riding tomorrow, “close enough” doesn’t cut it. 

They’re professionals too. Why should they get a pass?

Because your job will effect people's safety. That notice not at all.

When you get tired of wrenching that might be a good retirement gig. 

And maybe this will be good for you...

 That chair is not quite comfy enough plus I'm not a train foamer. 

Are you sure you're not a foamer? Well after this solution, you will be a train foamer and a memory foamer.

Ha I have one of those. Used it for a day then threw it in my garage. Luckily I got it on sale. Lol

Yeah I have a good one that I use when I drive TTC but other than that it collects dust in the back of my truck.

Why did it stank from the seat because of the driver who had the bus before you had a major case anal sweat leakage

Lee Kebum is a good guy but no one has the heart to tell him he has a problem, I heard he has questioned why drivers who relieve him are carrying fabreeze
