Weeks? 506 was changing about twice a week last summer. Perhaps 4 times a week, given the difference between what they said, and what they actually did.Remember when the streetcars all ran on a fixed route and weren't changing every few weeks?
Main Street Station
The bus/streetcar loop at Main Street Station remains closed for
critical structural rehabilitation workdoing not much at all until September 2023. The following service changes are in effect:
Just tweet at Rick Leary and I'm certain the issue will be addressed with due haste!This is my local station and what a completely bungled load of ....
Aside from the fact that work is progressing at a rate of about 1 day per week......
Two Danforth routes (Danforth 113 and Cliffside 20) are gone from Danforth btw Main and VP.
Mortimer 62 is now on Danforth from Main to VP.
Mortimer and Dawes are now boarding on Danforth..........and no shelter has been provided......nothing, nada, squat, for a 4-month window, in rainy season........at a location where.......wait for it.......there's shelter pad in place, because its a former stop.
Except that they don't lessen vibration, at least not by any direct methods that would affect the B-D track - all it does is make the wheel slightly more slick vis-a-vis its contact with the rail. It reduces noise by allowing the wheels to slide on the railhead more easily.Perhaps if the TTC isn't already doing so, they too could employ these devices to lessen track vibration, particularly on line 2.
I've also been intrigued by the route since the TTC makes no reference to the route in that it is never listed on the website or even mentioned. I believe the Island Shuttle was also were you could find the last Orion V after all the others were scrapped. It's gone now and judging by this picture the shuttle is operated by an Orion VII OG.Random question but I’ve seen on cptdb a “Toronto island bus” route mentioned but I’ve never actually seen reference to this anywhere else?
