Mississauga, where cars rule city growth
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

The 511 is almost all Flexities today. 505 Dundas is next.
On Sundays, maybe, and only once the Broadview works are done.
Rick Leary said in January that while 505/506 were to be bustituted for all of 2018, it *might* be reversed in the fall. It will be interesting to see how the 504A-D routes operate during the summer and how that impacts Flexity deployment.

Broadview work only starting.

Tomorrow the 504 variants are on.

While Leary may have said that early this year, service planning is operating on the expectation that streetcars will be back on 505 Dundas by September or October. 506 will take a bit longer as the vehicle requirements are so high.

There are ZERO Flexities on 511 right now. 7C254E33-020E-47AD-AC2E-7A02675F59B9.png

Saw an actual (not testing) flexity on Queen today headed westbound from Dufferin as an actual 501. I was not expecting to see that until 2019.

That's odd. There were none listed out in either AM or PM rush. What time? Which car number?
