York Region does not need 60ft buses for conventional routes. It needs more service first.. increase frequencies by 50%, don't buy 50% larger buses. 60ft buses make sense on routes with high frequencies... they are silly on routes with 30 minute frequencies.also they are looking into going hybrid with new flyer as well as buying more 60ftrs for conventional routes this year.
Probably the latter. Sometimes a random empty blue just slots itself in at rhc if the route is packed or delayedJust got onto a completely empty Viva going north at Bernard. Was it just the weather today? Or do they just start slotting in drivers for the afternoon rush?
Yikes, that looks horribly overdone. I think the TTC ones are about the most a design needs to "scream".
The first of the YRT electric buses is finally here!! Wrap looks interesting too!
Imo in a region where car is king , they need to promote their new products more, hence the outlandish livery. Also it's their first non diesel bus ever so they are excitedYikes, that looks horribly overdone. I think the TTC ones are about the most a design needs to "scream".
Effective Sunday, November 1, 2020, various YRT routes will have service changes. In addition, three new services are being introduced:
- Route 305 - Box Grove Express
- Mobility On-Request Bur Oak
- Mobility On-Request King City GO
- Mobility On-Request Stouffville
Hopefully the reductions on Route 99 are temporary until the rapidway opens (ridership is down - even without COVID - on both 99 and Viva Blue due to construction-related delays and the street looking like a mess). Yonge really should be moving towards 24-hour service, especially since they want the subway so badly.
