    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I think something needs to change about buildings being open on weekends. I myself have found myself waiting in the dead of night at Bramalea, which gets very frequent bus service even on weekends, but the building is still closed. For a line that will actually get weekend train service, to not...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    When they first introduced the midday trains to Mount Pleasant, they were 10 car units, but they were supeer empty when I used them during university. Like maybe a dozen people in the top level, it was great.

    TTC: Easier Access Phase III

    I'm interested to see their plans for Islington and Warden, which basically need a complete rebuild to accommodate elevators and access to the bus bays, which is why they're very last on the list. Of which Islington bus bays are literally falling apart.

    Brampton Transit/Zum

    28 Wanless looks to mostly a repeat of other routes, the only unique part of is the section on Remembrance Dr replacing the realignment of 27. But, with 28 and 81, they do seem to adding more routes to the Sandalwood Loop. New service deeper into Caldeon with 81, and rather oddly it turns...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I'll need further clarification on the entirely of these cuts (the wording is vague enough that it could mean a elimination of weekend bus service on the Kitchener corridor? - which is insanity). But this is an attack on public transit of the highest order.

    Transit Fantasy Maps

    There are sections of some routes that run along Steeles, and they accept passengers normally on Steeles, but not TTC fares. I've occasionally used them to get from Brampton to some locations in North York without having to pay a second fare.

    I don't see any double track. This may be a (huge) oversight though. The 1:20am train you refer to is entirely new to the schedule, which only goes into effect this Saturday. The last train in the current schedule arrives at 12:50am Canada Day is on a Saturday schedule.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Who just parks on tracks, in the middle of the day, in the middle of a crosswalk? Like, that's not something you just accidentally do.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    I check the time left on my transfer more than my actual balance, which the TTC readers don't show yet either.

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

    I wouldn't call it a sense of entitlement to be annoyed for fares to be lowered from the original price only to then be raised back up again from the next change of government.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    I've seen streetcars chartered in Toronto before for private parties - but no alcohol.

    Because they're not the same distance. Georgetown - Acton is just under 10km. Acton - Guelph is near 20km.

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions) Actual new fares for each line have been posted. $3.70 is the price for ALL stations within 10km, throughout the whole system. The only thing not clear with these charts is for trips that may be traveling through Union.

    Metrolinx: Presto Fare Card

    It's not the presto system that's the problem (in this case), it's the payment machine which is mostly unrelated to Presto. I wonder if the debit/credit problem was just that it wasn't reliably connected to the network to run cards because the location isn't fixed.

    Hurontario LRT | Metrolinx

    The document literally says why - to prevent repetition of the TTC stations mostly. Hurontario has very few conflicts in that regard. While the neighourhood isn't the best solution, it does prevent every stop from being "Finch and X" which they probably wanted to avoid for being too wordy. And...
