    TTC: Electric and alternative fuel buses

    Quebec government at it again, offering up free "loans" to protect one of their beloved companies from closing up shop: https://montrealgazette.com/business/local-business/quebec-gives-nova-bus-19m-loan-despite-its-job-cuts To me it looks like just a matter of time before NovaBus is gone to...

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    I'm pretty sure I saw the layout at Weston GO about 2 weeks ago for the Union Pearson screens so it's possible they were testing things out; I wasnt really impressed with how it looked but overall it looked clean and easy to pull information from which I suppose is the ultimate goal of these...

    Hamilton Marquee Residence | 106.07m | 32s | Vrancor Development | Kirkor

    Dont want to drag this off topic too much, but did you snap this pic yourself? If so, it would've been a good call to report this to the CFIA because this is disgusting.

    Toronto 88 Isabella | 203.65m | 62s | Capital Developments | Diamond Schmitt

    The proponent must've had some strong drinks while they were putting that into their reports.

    Toronto Union Station Revitalization | ?m | ?s | City of Toronto | NORR

    Great to see movement on this, the lighting in the Bay Concourse has degraded to an appallingly bad state and it's been that way for years now.

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Surprise, surprise ladies and gentlemen. Would it surprise you if I said that this was a Sanscon project? We dont know the official cause of the watermain break yet of course, but we do know who the contractor is and their lengthy list of issues.

    Toronto Park Lawn GO Station | 12.83m | 2s | First Capital | Hatch

    Ask Mike Harris and his common sense revolution folk, they're the only people who apparently knew better through whatever information cool-aid they were drinking.

    Toronto Park Lawn GO Station | 12.83m | 2s | First Capital | Hatch

    Kipling has a different kind of modal share split. There's a lot of people from within Etobicoke (north and south) who will drive up/down to Kipling and catch a train, but what you dont see much of is people going out of their way to get off at the 427 at Dundas to take the GO or subway. Usually...

    Toronto 619 Yonge | 237.99m | 70s | YI Developments | Core Architects

    Please no. I think we're all waiting for the day they get the hell out of this city. That's one way they could do a tremendous service for all of us.

    Toronto The One | 328.4m | 91s | Mizrahi Developments | Foster + Partners

    Unfortunately the mess of a proposal immediate to the west of this build might just have that covered.

    Toronto Park Lawn GO Station | 12.83m | 2s | First Capital | Hatch

    Ah this sounds similar to the delusion that the province had when they built the Sheppard subway to Don Mills. They had the "common sense" idea that commuters would get off at the 404, park at Fairview, and then use the subway the rest of the way to get downtown. Look at how well that worked out...

    Toronto Eglinton Line 5 Crosstown LRT

    Let's hope that the road resurfacing contractors dont puncture a hole through the Crosstown tunnel which would necessitate some more non-service ;) On that note, maybe the city will get Sanscon to do the work! This is so exciting, I cant take all the suspense.

    I dont mean to dig old stuff up (or maybe I do since i'm bringing it up), but today is the first day I've used the Yonge Line northbound since the TTC instituted their series of slow orders. Throughout my 20+ years of using the TTC, i've never seen things this bad with slow orders as they are...

    Both were planned before the whole FIFA thing unfolded so the city has had this in the books for a while. The King St project (between Dufferin and Shaw) will be done before the World Cup, while the Gardiner rehabilitation work will be paused however that will still be ongoing once the World Cup...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    As usual bad coordination work by the city, having the King St watermain replacement/streetcar track replacement and Gardiner Expressway construction starting up at essentially the same time. I have no idea how they expect anyone living in the Liberty Village area to get anywhere, maybe they...

    Mississauga Pearson Bombardier Hangar | ?m | 1s | Bombardier | NEUF

    They're not really competing with each other, they're in entirely different segments. DeHaviland is focusing on regional passenger turboprops and specialized aircraft, Bombardier just private jets. We're lucky that DeHaviland was able to pick up product that Bombardier essentially let wither...

    TTC: Other Items (catch all)

    Nice find as always @Northern Light Honestly the free field trip rides and free rides to high school students off-peak are both non-starters to me, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. They both dont have any material benefit asides from taking up additional capacity on the system, at...
