    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    So I took the 47 to Hamilton and back to Square One, with the new Erin Mills Transitway Station in use. Apparently, accessing the transitway station is a total disaster. Going westbound: My bus caught the red light, so Erin Mills Parkway traffic kicks in. The changing of lights takes around 2...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    Well, it's that time of the year again: http://www.brampton.ca/EN/residents/transit/Documents/BramptonTransit_PICBoards_March2015_web_full_P2.pdf Major highlights revolve around 5 corridors: Steeles, Queen, Chinguacousy, James Potter / Mavis, and Dixie - Some confusing service on Steeles...

    I took 109 northbound one morning, and I was so impressed by the results. Took us just 25 minutes from Dixie Station to Meadowvale TC! Basically 5 minutes Dixie - City Centre, 5 minutes inside the 403, then the remaining 15 minutes on the local streets. Commuting to Milton seems viable with the...

    York Region Transit: Viva service thread

    That is because 56 is part of a major corridor (Queen), and same thing applies to 35 (Bovaird/Castlemore). And introducing service while the area is still being built will make them rely on transit and use them more often. 41/41A Thomas in Mississauga has been a really good result due to this...

    I hope they also change the "551" routing last-minute, like they did with the 505. What I mean is that the "551" should go straight to Meadowvale TC instead of Lisgar, and instead can simply add a stop at W. Churchill at Argentia as a measure to serve the Lisgar SmartCentre. After all...

    I consider the lack of Sunday service as a minor issue. It will definitely kick in when the whole transitway is finished. After all, the 4-minute time advantage will definitely be reduced to nil with the light Sunday traffic. The service span is pretty timed for those who end at 10:00 PM on a...

    MiWay: Service thread

    The final nail in the coffin for the 45's weekend service. A few years ago, I remember that 45's weekend service was slated for cancellation. If this weekend service gets cancelled, this move is to blame. But the BRT is coming though, that's an additional trip generator, as well as a connecting...

    York Region Transit: Viva service thread

    My thoughts: 1. I don't foresee demand for 10-minute service on 22A (assuming 22A and 29+ will alternate). If it serves Seneca, instead of bypassing it, then yes... I definitely see 10-minute service on a restructured 22A from York U to Seneca King. The subway will make Seneca @ King very...

    The BRT will still be faster (though by a fraction of a minute) during off-peak, since you still have to access the Erin Mills carpool lot, - which, without BRT, involves waiting for right turn with seemingly endless parade of vehicles in Winston Churchill, then entering 403, then exiting 403...

    What the ???? are they thinking?!?!?!!? Hopefully they won't delay opening the 505, as well as Steeles West and Queen West! $3.75 is very shocking!!! I also heard that YRT's will increase to an even more shocking $4.00! Is this rumour true? I gotta admit that 30-minute service on some...

    MiWay: Service thread

    Happy to see 109 getting midday service before the BRT opens. 108 having better frequency at AM rush and more trips overall is a vast improvement over the 82. 20's Sunday service actually increases from 40 to 34 minutes. Thought that it would be 33 to coordinate with 26's dismal Sunday...

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    4/4A routing south of Queen = SMH. 4 should stay at Chinguacousy. I understand the need for service to new subdivisions, so I get the 4A reroute. Hopefully next year, 53 or 54 gets extended along the James potter diversion. Sad to see Mississauga-style efficiency (aka delaying promising...

    Toronto Premium Outlets (Halton Hills)

    I feel bad to those who don't have cars. They are missing some action and promising deals. Hmm... and they have provided space for tour buses too. I'll be going at Aug 4th though.

    On the other side of the City Centre, the patios at Boston Pizza and Panera Bread are also very well-used!

    York Region Transit: Viva service thread

    Normally, I don't care that much about what they're planning outside of Peel Region, but I was curious, and I wasn't prepared to handle what I saw... I was extremely surprised about what's going on to my neighbours to the east!!! First of all, about Viva Orange... What a joke. Viva Orange...

    I heard that the partial construction of Orbitor station was in conjunction with redevelopment of the adjacent hotel. I think the reason that it was done earlier is so that the BRT construction will not re-disturb the newly reconstructed area.

    Very surprising. Especially that midday loads range from average to below average. But this is just a new addition, so it will take a couple of years (or as soon as September) to see the real impact. I'm surprised. I was very sure 110 still blows 61 out of the water, at least for weekdays...

    MiWay: Service thread

    For me, the 24-hour viable routes are the following: Phase 1: - 1 Dundas: 24/7 - 19 Hurontario: 24/7 - 26 Burnhamthorpe: 24/7 Phase 2: - 3 Bloor: 24/6 Tuesday to Sunday mornings. Add a bus on weekday late evenings as well to increase frequency. Extend Monday morning service when warranted. -...

    Agreed with most replies here. There are so many more plots of land available for redevelopment or infill within Mississauga's Urban Growth Centre. There will definitely be towers taller and more beautiful than Absolute pulled off. So if you're not satisfied with Absolute, there are so many...
