    First day of service for their battery-electric bus.

    Post your pictures of Toronto here!

    My bus got caught up in the protest, so I got off and took a picture.

    Train Spotting

    Thanks! Looking forward to eventually riding one to Montreal.

    Train Spotting

    It’s still kind of a treat for me to catch the new Siemens trains. Not that many Toronto trips yet.

    Mississauga Toronto | Hurontario-Main Line 10 LRT | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Are they going to have to renumber MiWay route 10? And if this line numbering scheme is supposed to compliment the TTC line numbers, what about TTC route 10?

    Toronto Toronto | Union Pearson Express | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx | MMM Group Limited

    I used to do this to get High Park from Union until they separated the UP fare from the GO fare. Back then, with the transfer credit at Union from the Lakeshore Line, the Union to Bloor leg was free.

    Metrolinx: Other Items (catch all)

    Oakville Transit bought these electric minibuses from Turkish manufacture Karsan last year. They’re used on on-demand and paratransit. They’ve had a few teething issues, but they seem to be running better now. Range still seems to be an issue in the cold, though.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I don’t have an in depth understanding of GO’s operations, but my question is: why are they still running six-car trains?

    GO Transit Fleet Equipment and other

    They actually will be doing the rest of the Series II coaches.

    Safety never stops. Destination sécurité. Sans arrêt.

    GTHA Transit Fare Integration

    Also with each other. I think the current scheme was more about agencies connecting to the TTC. Though I wonder if for a journey where someone starts on the TTC and, say, transfers to Mississauga, then to Oakville in under two hours that results in only one (TTC) fare paid. I haven’t looked at...

    Suspicious package found at Bronte. Bomb unit on scene.

    Durham Region Transit / Pulse

    That would be related to the CAD/AVL, which I’m not sure the leased buses will be getting. Can’t confirm either way. Have been told, they will apparently have Presto installed, though.

    Intercity Bus Services

    According to a friend who spoke with a TOK driver today, another company has picked up these routes and plans to run them with smaller buses.

    Pret A Manger coming to Canada!

    Tried it today. Was actually a bit surprised they opened on a Sunday. Weekends they’re open until 16:00. Looks like a lot of their stuff had been sold when I got there just before closing which is a good sign. Got an egg salad sandwich (a bit pricy, but was expecting that). It was good and on...
