Is there a way to calculate how much available parking capacity they have at night with all the detours/closures?

It is already known that there isn't enough room to park the fleet overnight that all routes are to see streetcar night service compart to the past that there was either no service or buses were used. Even after the Hillcrest yard gets built, overnight service using streetcar will continue on all lines.

One needs to visit Russell and Roncesvalles yards to see how many cars can fit a track. Russell only currently has 1/3 of the yard available unless they have strung the area that has been rebuilt and using it. It wasn't strung when I saw it a month or so ago and the tracker is only showing the westside is being used.

The exhibition loop has 6 spots at this time to store cars, but will loose it when the next section or the last section of the Gardiner rebuilt takes place. The last section will be for the north side and not allowing cars to be park there over night.

Could we just not and let them deliver at whatever speed until we can just impose some contract penalties? It's not as if the TTC is making maximum use of the fleet they have. $47M is a lot of money and while I'd prefer we get them all, after the way they screwed us on initial delivery can't see why the City/TTC should agree to this.
That what you get going sole supplier and job protection. Then writing tenders and contracts with no real penalties clause in then as well enforcing them.
