    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    You’re just gonna keep making up excuses, so I dunno why I’m gonna bother replying. And I’m 90% sure your original post was just an opportunity to shit on a front line employee So convenient now that you say you were in the first car with the operator and now it’s so convenient that you say the...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Your whole scenario doesn’t make any sense. You don’t have to run five cars down the platform. There are employees on the train that can better respond than one on the platform. If you’re in the first car, there is an employee in the same car as you. I still don’t get how you can think someone...

    Yes I know. But you can press it without anyone seeing you or you can press it in the next car. If there’s a huge commotion due to a fight, the extra noise of the alarm won’t be as obvious anyway.

    I said nothing about calling any information number. Your previous post said you were afraid of pressing the yellow strip because you didn’t want to stop in the tunnel with an attack taking place. Now you think they’re gonna hold the train in the tunnel with an attack taking place until police...

    So then what would you have done to make sure the police have them in custody? Telling an employee who is not even on the train is pretty useless. How are they really expected to communicate properly with control? There’s also still a chance the aggressor would leave when the train got to...

    So what is it exactly you want? The person on your train could file a police report with a description of the aggressor. If they weren’t hurt, I don’t exactly blame them for not bothering though.

    The aggressor may even be scared off and leave on their own. Some dude was threatening to beat me up many years ago. I pressed the yellow strip, we stopped at the station, and he ran away as soon as the doors opened.

    St Andrew was one of the first, if not the first, station to get LED lighting. Being an early adopter, the quality of light has never really been as good. It's always been somewhat dimmer and colder than, say, Osgoode.

    From what I heard from friends who work at the TTC, this is apparently the case. Seems to have happened after that one video from a few years ago where the mayor and councillors also piled on to and the guys eventually got fired. TTC didn't like the bad PR, but I have to say the current...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Just look at the latest CP24 article about the employee assault. The headline is the operator shoved one of the teens. Doesn’t matter to them that the teens were shoving and disturbing other passengers before this all started and the employee told them to stop. Doesn’t matter to them that the...

    Post your pictures of Toronto here!

    Is this LED? When did they switch? I remember it still being neon not too long ago.

    They don’t need to be on every vehicle, but they need to be visible across the system. I don’t see why they cannot be assigned a specific zone where they ride and walk the system making sure no one is being violent. Honestly, Metrolinx has figured this out. I’ve seen Transit Safety at random...

    Now are these officers going to be all over the system and visible or just chat in the break room at select stations? Because that’s what they said about safety officers and many were doing the latter according to those who work the frontline at the TTC.

    Yeah one post calling for the extermination of the mentally ill and one saying it’s a bad thing are totally on the same level. What utter horseshit.

    People like to trot out “Godwin’s Law” so much that it obscures really concerning ideologies. The poster above was literally advocating for the extermination of a segment of the population and it was simply dismissed as no big deal. We actually do have a problem when people start to think this way.

    Trying to pass the buck to the federal government when the city can do so much on their own to make things better. It’s obvious he doesn’t want to take responsibility for anything. Why even be mayor at this point.

    Honestly? Yes. John Tory and Rick Leary are so detached from the everyday TTC rider and employee experience that they don’t see any urgency.

    There is literally amounts of salt year round at some stations. It’s so stupid and bad for the environment. I’m pretty sure it killed all the trees at Pickering GO Station too.

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

    I wonder how much of those passengers the Ontario Line, East Harbour Station, and Liberty Village Station could absorb from Union Station. It’s not uncommon for some people to back track currently from Union since their destination is somewhere else. This is really common for LSE passengers who...
