Would be nice if you did some research and learned the rationale for the different types of signs.The lack of a route number is a problem. We shouldn't be going backwards.
Also a lack of indication of service hours.
Black's going to be difficult to see, strapped to a hydro pole, in the dark. Design failure. Also ... seems optimistic that TTC will adopt it.
Firstly, this specific type of sign is used to signify a bus stop. For this sign the information is put on a information or guide panel closer to the ground with more information.
from page 255In Level 3 and Level 4 bus stops (where a Bus Schedule Panel or Bus Stop Guide is not installed), journey planning information is to be included on the bus stop flag below the operator logo. A suggested design is included here, but this may need to be modified to align with the operator’s customer information service.
Next theres this crazy invention by Thomas Edison called the light bulb. believe or not it illuminates things.
Last, the document also states that Toronto has TO360 and that is the standard in the city therefor it will be used within Toronto by the TTC. I'm sure the hope is eventually the TTC will see the upside of having a seamless way finding system region wide and adopt Metrolinx's standard.
Did you read anything from the report? There is rationale for every specific detail about every type of sign. This is a bunch of idiots being paid to put a few pictures on a sign.Can't believe they needed to hire a consultation firm to tell them how to do that. You can always tell when decision makers don't actually use the product they are selling because they spend money on consultants to tell them things that are obvious to anyone who actually uses the product. Seriously anyone on this site could have come up with the same idea for free, and hell just go over to the Fantasy Map thread to see it in action and done better. Metrolinx really just exudes "Big Brain" energy. I am adamant if you got a bunch of us on this site together we could come up with a better more cohesive way finding system.
I really don't understand why some of you one second complain about the regions fairs not being integrated but when they try to integrate another part you hate it.
Do you just hate METROLINX that much?
I am a little confused why they have put up what they have because there is nothing similar to it in their way finding standard.
However, I dont think we can rule out that we wont be seeing theres pop up. This is one of the first signs we have seen so maybe just wait.
