Weekends is different than a weekday. Less ridership than on a weekday, however it is still much, much, much more busier than most other North American transit agencies. Some U.S. cities have zero Sunday service, or end it much earlier.

Was the same last Sunday when I checked.

All the streetcars out there currently are new (55 of them), except for the 10 CLRVs on 511, and 32 CLRVs and a pathetic 8 ALRVs on 501. And of course 62 replacement buses.

whats the status of the ALRV refurbishment program?
Results January 2018's MDBF decreased to 890 kilometres, which continues to be below the target of 6,000 kilometres. Reliability of the ALRV fleet continues to be poor due to the age (+ 35 years) and the condition of the fleet. Inclement weather in January further impacted the reliability of this fleet. Analysis The MDBF from January 2018 decreased marginally from the previous period's (December 2017) reliability figure of 1,177 kilometres. This can be attributed to the continuing poor weather conditions. In these poor conditions, the ALRV experienced significant electrical, pneumatic and sander problems In comparison to January 2017's MDBF of 1,528 kilometres, January 2018's result was also slightly lower. Age, condition of vehicles and more severe weather conditions in 2018 contributed to the decline. Action Plan Minor rebuilds have allowed the ALRVs to continue past their original life cycle. Due to inherent design problems and reliability issues of this vehicle type, the current plan is to accelerate decommissioning of this fleet. The use of these vehicles in limited service will also reduce unreliable service. With the decommissioning of the more problematic vehicles, reduction in service and improving weather condition, staff expect the reliability trend to stabilize.

Noted elsewhere: 4235 was in the middle of a project to rewheel the car, but then someone high up decided otherwise and called for the car to be decommissioned.

Depending on BBD, this will most likely be their last year.

Results The MDBF for the LFLRV fleet decreased in January 2018 to 14,748 kilometres. The 12-month moving average (12 MMAVG) rate for the MDBF increased from the rate of January 2017 to 11,449 kilometers, below the 35,000 kilometer target. Analysis The new LFLRV fleet continues to experience ‘growing pains’ in terms of design and manufacturing quality that are impacting reliability. Challenges with the passenger information system in January 2018 resulted in a decrease in MKBD when compared to December 2017. Action Plan TTC staff is continuing to work with Bombardier and suppliers to resolve design and quality issues. As vehicle delivery continues and technical production issues are resolved, it is expected that this fleet will continue to improve in reliability. Although new vehicles may be below MDBF targeted, they are 6 to 7 times more reliable than our aging fleet. The TTC and our customers welcome the new vehicles as they arrive.

What's happening with 4470? Should have been shipped by now, but haven't seen a confirmation. Anyone have any idea on how many cars are nearing completion and could potentially arrive by end of Q1?

4470 was delivered on the weekend. No news on 4471 yet. But we are beginning to see a regular output without gaps.
