  1. That's exactly why that happened, You kept just copying and pasting between forums...
  2. Like the original 95 routing? This would make more sense to give that routing to the 87, since it replaced the former 174 and that it's terminus would not be much more far. Despite proposal to shorten the 74 to Nepean Woods, it's still a pretty long route and would certainly significantly add more time for those trying to head to Tunney's Pasture. I would actually like to see this routing return.

  4. They should have one at Terry Fox so that People from Kanata or Stittsville who need to redeem bus pass vouchers don't have to travel to Rideau to get their stuff done, as it seems the service center at Lincoln will most likely be permanently closed until 2025 or whenever the train starts running. Alternatively, MetroLinx could maybe get off their butt and make physical cards almost a thing of the past by allowing us to use our phones to use our monthly pass, but they're so slow and provide little innovation, that OC is making backdoor deals with the card reader manufacture (S&B) to advanc
  5. Although they had a retail spot constructed, they never did they actually had any retailer be established given the close proximity to Kanata Centrum. Though around that time OC posted tenders for retail spots on the LRT, they also posted spots on the BRT including, Terry Fox. I'll see if I can find that later...Before the Tunney's Pasture arson of 2003, Tunney's Pasture had a Quickie/Gateway, but as mentioned, it was burnt down and never reopened.
  6. Probably on the lower level similar to Hurdman or Blair. I hope they open something like a Quickie/Circle K as opposed to a H.G.C. I could use a cheap hot chocolate instead of paying $3.00 for a small H.C and maybe access to better selection of goods. Gateway/Quickie missed out on an opportunity, but given how they were treated with the 09' Baseline demolition, 2015 Hurdman Closure, and the closing of the Bayshore location in 2017 (I miss that store so much) and then the PDO and Lincoln Closure in 2019, it's no surprise they never bid for a spot on the LRT. Hell, I'm not surprised even Tim Hor
  7. All ex-Calgary were GPS tracked, they had NSAS on them
  8. I had forgotten about this, thank you! If only this was around when the classics were still in service. Would have been awesome to use this to track the ex-Calgary :)
  9. They're being treated like the old classics and are only be dispatched when needed. They've basically only been sending out anything 14XX up only the last year or so.
  10. I've forgotten to keep you updated.. all 02XX were retired, so whatever plurality of older LFS with their original livery remain, will probably retain it until retirement
  11. I mean, we're also in APTA but we're not American? lol. I wouldn't call the O-Train a metro by along shot...
  12. Very nice! IMO you should have gotten a D40 on it since it's as old as you! lol
  13. Great step in the right direction, but that's a hard pass for me to try out until they can provide some form of P.O.P that I can use for buses that aren't at fare paid zones. Not to mention, full price fare vs what I pay for EquiPass
  14. IMO to improve service, They should create special 85 trips that run between Gatineau and Pimisi, similar to how the 17 runs midday between Lyon and Gatineau. Better yet, instead of making Routes 15, 17 the old "180" for people transferring from Blair or Rideau, they should see if they can just extend some eastbound routes to Gatineau like the 39 or even some Connexion Routes. Atlas, I think OC would never do this today like they did in the past, but certainly what I can say is the current way of they're doing it is not ideal given the problems with the 85 vs the old 44 (and older 8/88) and th
  15. I honestly don't understand, why do we need an BRT on March Rd? Never once have I taken a 93 (63, 64, 266) during peak periods and thought we need a BRT. We already have lots of road space and speed limits are 80km/h, and unless they're going to create expanded service on the 66, 165, or 166, that will fundamentally change how the 63/64 operte today, given they travel via Herzberg, Leggett, Solandt, etc. during off peak hours.
  16. All buses have been delivered about a week ago
  17. That's all, There use to be the Greenboro bus way on Lorry Greenberg you'd be able to see the remains of back in 2009, but around 2010+, it was patched up made to look like no buses used to go through there. The Busway was closed with the opening of the Southern Transitway on September 3rd, 1995.
  18. Hate to correct you, but that's not correct. It wasn't abandoned until 2014. In 2002, they thought they'd make Kanata Centrum a new Transitway Station, but due to spacing limitations and the fact OC Transpo doesn't own the property its on, they opted to build a new station at Terry Fox. Even after a phased opening of Terry Fox station starting in September 2004, Kanata Centrum was still served by Route 96 until 2014 when the ridership no longer justified deviating the 96 and 203 to serve K.T.C
  19. They've ran through Woodroffe pre Carlingwood so they determined that they'd make the 174 (Route 87 today) which already runs on Woodroffe servce Woodroffe/Fairlawn to Carlingwood back in the 90's. They've already got the 11 and 153 today running on Richmond so I honestly don't think they'd extend the 58 to where you're describing, especially with service being cut to Lincoln Fields from Carlingwood in Setpember 2004. Here are scans for reference. 1990 1992 1994 1996 2001 June 2004 Sept. 2004

  21. May I introduce you to the STO ? Current cash fares are $4. Before they consolidated their fare classes back in 2013, Interzone (94 & 98, rural express) was $6.60, or $4.90 for Express routes, ouch... Agreed
  22. Just pretend you're going up a very long set of stairs on a classic assigned to an assessible route, it's not that bad In all seriousness, didn't they say they're looking to add an additional elevator at Blair as a backup incase the small broke down as often as it did? I'm still waiting to see on how they're going to have an additional elevator adjacent to the current one that connects you with G.C and Blair Station Bridge
