    Post your criticism/suggestions here

    I got that too. Seems like a hijack of the page. Today it redirects to a sex chat...

    Toronto | Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Has there been any update as to when the glass atrium will be illuminated? Is that still happening? Also, any update as to when they install the public art in the moat?

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I’m pretty sure I’ve noticed them on the CEM cars.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    A bit late, but this light isn’t for passengers. It’s for crew. For example, if a door looks closed, but isn’t properly closed.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    4178 made its service debut today since being made over. It looks great! Would be nice if this car could be saved too, though I don't think that's in the plans. A Streetcar Named Toronto

    Countdown to 2047: The Death of Hong Kong?

    This is where it’s starting to border on the ridiculous (in my view anyway). The MTR is absolutely destroyed by rioters. The system is shut down. Now you’ve got some activists calling the shutdown an act of aggression, martial law, anti-democratic, etc. It’s like some sort of feedback loop. I...

    Durham Region Transit / Pulse

    I felt the same way. The existing GO buses like the 92 and 96 make use of the 401 and make limited stops. Travel times to STC are pretty good. Staying on Highway 2 and Ellesmere and going through UTSC, it's much slower by comparison on the GO route 51 and DRT Pulse based on my experience.

    King Street (Streetcar Transit Priority)

    I tend to do this too. Though sometimes I remember Ontario drivers DGAF, and move back to the sidewalk.

    TTC: Flexity Streetcars Testing & Delivery (Bombardier)

    That was way more people than I expected. The car leaving Russell was crush loaded by the time it crossed the Don. Farewell run was a nice gesture by the TTC. Here is a photo from today:

    TTC: Electric and alternative fuel buses

    The TTC's Proterra buses are currently being delivered to Mount Dennis division. One notable feature is all-perimeter seating (except for across the rear door) in the low floor section. They also have door buttons on the outside and inside.

    The door from the Food Court towards the VIA concourse was cracked open today.

    TTC: Scarborough Subway Extension (formerly LRT replacement) (City of Toronto, Design Phase)

    Bombardier could probably produce a custom vehicle for the TTC. One that uses LIMs, automatic train control, and packaged for the SRT. It'll probably cost more, but...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    I mean they also have to navigate a 12 or 18 metre box around the city and help with directions. Also, what would a fare wage be for someone where they are expected to get spit on or the shit beaten out of them over $3? Would you want to do the job? Would others?

    Metrolinx: Finch West LRT

    I believe, in Toronto's case, the 100% low floor for streetcars was a recommendation from ACAT.
