It has a lot to do with the Flexity's.This doesn't have to do with the Flexity's and the s**tshow that is Bombardier. Munro says so right in his quoted Twitter posts.
The 30 (or is it now 20) remaining ALRvs may now be around longer, with TTC's stupid decision to second guess and rethink the the option on exercising the option and getting 60 more Bombardier Flexity vehicles.
What is off-topic, is complaining that on-topic discussion is off-topic. Just because a relative novice transit user such as yourself (who admitted ages ago, that they only ever use the 510) doesn't understand the relationship, doesn't mean it's not there.
Yes, February. I've seen nothing but streetcars on 506 all weekend. And now it's going to be warm for the next week, streetcars will be back. However TTC moved a lot of the already scheduled 504 peak runs using buses to 505, and those 505 cars to 504, to increase capacity in the King pilot area.And buses on 505 and buses on 506...but wasn't that supposed to be in February? Hard to believe so many of the CLRVs are dead in the water because of the cold. But it is damn cold.
February is a mix of streetcar shortage, and the desire to get more equipment for 504.
I don't think that's true. In Toronto alone, the GO equipment seems fine. And the TR implementation went better than many similar projects.Bombardier has not built a good product since the T1s.
Even TTC has been very positive about the Flexity quality - it's the quantity that was the issue. Though they are now rolling off the assembly line much faster than originally planned.
They shipped 16 in the last 3 calendar months. And the other 2 they'd hoped to ship are apparently all but done waiting for some parts to arrive. That's 64 a year, and almost 72 a year. 76 isn't that impossible.And no I really don't think they can build 6 cars a month right now. I think they could possibly build and ship one per week. Not 76 as scheduled, but certainly an improvement.
The target is about 3 a fortnight, not 3 a week!I believe their target is 3 per week.
That might be for all Flexity's produced in Canada, including the Toronto, Waterloo, and Edmonton cars.3 per week? Thats 156 per year give or take. Pretty ambitious if they could pull that one off.
The TTC target is 76 per year. About 1.5 a week. They ramped up to over 1.2 a week last quarter.
And about 4 weeks production.If we do a comparison of the total cars shipped, they are currently short 11 out of the 70 that should have been on hand on Dec 31/2017. That’s a 15.7% shortfall.
No it didn't. TTC didn't publish it in the CEO report until weeks after they received it. Probably about 6 weeks.The tally was altered several times, but in the waning days of November/December the “schedule” was altered for months that had already passed by.
Better for for shipped. As 2 of the 16 they shipped in the last quarter, didn't get delivered until 2018. Or else you'll be double counting, as they are already at 2.Let’s see what happens in 2018. If Bombardier can really get 17 units delivered in the first quarter, I will be convinced they have turned themselves around.
Though with Christmas, I would be happy if the 2nd quarter hits target.
Not that having all the cars by end of 2020 is the worst case scenario. It's a far site better than some of the scenarios floating around a couple of years ago!
