Click on the link. That schedule if from a June 2018 TTC Document, not December 2017.You have posted here and elsewhere a schedule from Dec 2017 or about that calls for deliveries of 27 by Q2 compared to monthly delivery in the past. This is a revised schedule.
I've no idea if Andy knew the answer, or if you correctly transcribed it.Talking to Andy in Dec and before then, he stated the schedule was based on delivery on TTC property, even if it takes BBD an extra month here to complete the car.
What we do know, is that the end of December 31, there were 57 cars in service (56th entering service on December 28, and 57th on December 30).
We also know that 59 cars had been delivered (not including 4401) (58th arriving December 22 and 59th arriving December 27).
And we know that Bombardier had shipped 61 cars (60th and 61st both arrived Hillcrest by January 5).
If that table showed 59 or 61 by end of 2017, you might have a valid point. But it clearly says 57 for end of 2017. So it's clearly deliveries.
Recently? Most recently TTC said Bombardier could meet 2019 target.As Rick has stated in his monthly report, he doesn't see BBD meeting current schedule for this year.
We all know the history here. Why go on about it endlessly? Bombardier's deliveries since Q3 2017 have been stellar. They've already delivered 28 this year after only delivering 29 last year. They delivered 13 in Q4 2017, 10 in Q1 2018, and 18 in Q2 2018.Regardless, TTC still short around 100 cars and thats piss poor on BBD end.
To meet the 2018 target of 64 in service, they have to have 121 total delivered compared to the 87 currently delivered. That only required 34 more deliveries this year. It will be close, that's for sure - but they are currently on track. Not sure why you aren't celebrating the positive here, instead of dwelling in the past.
Which route do you ride every day? Are you suffering with bustitutions like I am on 506 every day?
