4509 is on 501.
Now is it in service as a 501 since its an arrow or doing an in service test. It went into service mode Carlaw Ave on Queen St East at 5:17 pm Currently westbound at Jarvis St

4509 was doing its first day of testing as an in service car for about 6 hours. It currently out in Long Branch for the last few hours as a dot

Something must be up if 4509 is out testing before 4508 and a few hours after its GPS was turn on after 10 days being here.

4510 testing on Queen this evening.

You sure, as its GPS is not tracking nor 4508? Odd it out testing with no GPS unlike all the others up to 4507. 4509 is out testing on various routes.

4511 will be off loaded Wed.

Yep, 4470 is only Flexity in service on 501 currently, so I don't know what he is talking about.

I was east of Bathurst, possibly one was a deadhead showing 501. Didn't record numbers. Off hand I would have guessed 444x.

BTW - first time I have been on 501 at rush hour in a couple of months - absolutely horrid. Stood at Spadina, let several full cars go by, two didn't even open doors, just rolled through, packed to the rafters.

Also, currently there are no Flexities on 501 ( Wed, Nov 21st @ 8 AM ). This doesn't make sense given what Brad Ross said last week about deploying Flexities on 501 on weekdays.

There's only been one or two at times. It's only about a week since we last saw a CLRV on 504. Presumably there weren't any additional available.

Perhaps the third Wednesday of the month, is they day they sweep that big pile of sand that accumulates inside. :)

Yep, I see what you mean about there not being any Flexities available. I will take a look Thursday morning, however

Nothing at this time or anytime I look today at 501 to see if an Flexity is on it. Given the number of cars on the books, should have 3 cars for 501 now. 40 cars on 504 and no CLRV

4511 off loaded today.

No GPS for 4508 or 4510

4509 is heading west from Leslie for the 2nd time today and spent most the day up on St Clair. Could be in service come Monday.
