I've not seen very many at all - the odd mid-day car perhaps. There's none out this morning.

Where did you see this?

It's probably 504, 509, 510, 512, and 514 cars, that all have to run down Queen East, and even Queen West to Bathurst to get to their routes, from the barn on Leslie south of Queen. Many are signed as 501s - and there's a never-ending stream of them at 6 AM or so, as service begins.
A lot was exaggerating. They did have 501 on the display though.

That's the Q1+Q2 target for vehicles in service (presumably on June 30).

Bombardier can achieve the Q2 target, without achieving the Q1 or Q1+Q2 target.

As they've never achieved a quarterly target before, we should be accelerating - not raising the bar (yet).

The CEO report says "in service", not "on property".

I've seen photos of 4485. I don't know 4483 is in transit, though others might.

Heck, I'm not 100% convinced 4466 is even in Toronto. :)


It wouldn't be in service however in time to meet the 16 in-service during Q2 target that's mentioned in the TTC CEO's report.

By this time last year, BBD had delivered 9 in 2017. No matter how the next week or so spins out it's quite an improvement this year.

Will we see 4466 in service tomorrow since it has been sitting on track 2 for the last 6 hours, so say the tracker??

4480 is sitting on Track 5 and not sure if it ready for service or waiting for a service bay.

4481 in service bay

4482 out for testing

Any word on 4483=4486??

Not in town, but understand 4483 is here and 4486 is ready for pickup.

This means BBD will met Q2 schedule

4480 has enter service on 514,

4466 in the service bay

4482 looks like it returning to the Barns after being out all night for testing

Just from Totransit 4481 has enter service on route 511
That surprising, considering 2 hours ago the GPS had it out in Lake Ontario. Even enter service on 511 is odd,

4466 up on 512 in Testing

4482 in the service bay
