4497 is on its way, 4496 is on the property somewhere.

The ALRV fleet seems to be down to one vehicle - 4249. 4221 was out last Thursday evening, but hasn't been out since. It is really the end of the season for these cars.

From the August CEO Report, downloadable from this link:

The target for Q3, 2018 is 15 new streetcars in service. As of August 22, 2018, 7 streetcars have been shipped to TTC and 9 have entered service. Of the 204 streetcars ordered, 96 have been shipped and 91 have entered service.

It's been just those two for the past week or so. Word is they are trying to get a few more back on the road. 4221 was hit by a car and slightly damaged, but it has been repaired.

4489 has enter service on 509 after 7 days after its last test doing a short 2 hr trip of all things. Took only 50 days to get in service.

4494 in the service bay

4495 has been out testing the last 16 hours and currently out in Long Branch.

Thats fast. 4496 is tracking and looks like TTC is planning to fast track the new cars due to current conditions.

4495 is still out testing and close to 24 hrs since it went out.

4489 GPS is acting up and has it at non TTC areas from time to time since entering service today,

4494 still in the service bay

Considering how flaky NextBus and its feeds have been over the past two days, do we know for certain that 4489 is on the roads or in service? Has anyone actually seen it out there today?

Thats a good question related to 4489.

I noticed last night it was at the east end of track 2 ready to go into service which was odd, considering it spent next to no time in testing like the rest of the fleet.

The few times I have look at it today, the GPS said the car is on 509, but not even close to that route.

Currently, it just left the Ex.

4495 is now in the service bay after about 24 hours of testing.

Many cars have been sign in as 501 during testing as well as 505 and 506, This is one of them.

It about to come out of the yard for more testing after spending time in the service bay and no route number. This could be its last day of testing if it to enter service Sept 4.

4496 still in the service bay and yet to see testing.

4494 been in the service bay since its last test run on Aug 24 and should be entering service any day now.

4497 could be off loaded Sept 4 or 5th.

They are really pumping out these cars... At this rate we will see 4600 by the end of the summer.
