    Oh I see it now. Sorry it looked at first that the girders were all level with each other, which wouldn't have matched with the profile of the road, but yes it does look like another 1-2 lanes could be added. I think they had previously said it would have 1 additional lane than the current setup. Again, that only makes sense if they repurpose the bus lanes to a regular traffic lane, still not clear whether that will happen or if they will retain them for emergency use or circulation.

    Looking at the cars for scale, it looks like there's enough space for two more traffic lanes, the two tracks and centre platform. I suspect they may build the additional traffic lanes first (possibly just for construction access initially, not for general use), quickly followed by the rail/platform deck by September.

    It certainly doesn't look like there is any more room , although a recent reply from the Stage 2 team to me suggested there would be an additional lane once things were completed. Trying to find that response for more clarity.

    Some more from Tierney. This nearly answers the question of whether or not there will be a gap between the highway and O-Train RoW; doesn't look like it.
  7. Of any Orion I units I was able to get the year of retirement for, all eight lasted until 1990: 8801-8802 and 8806 (1978) 8809, 8820, 8822 and 8824 (1979) 8830 (1980) With it now being known at least some of those buses lasted anywhere from 10 to 12 years, I am wondering if all that were built from 1978 to 1980 were retired in a single year or if any were retired before the delivery of New Flyer D40 units 9001-9055.

  9. For some time, I have been putting together as much as I could about when high-floor buses were retired. Other things I have been able to come up with were the introduction of monthly passes in 1976, the transition to a fully accessible bus fleet from 1999 to 2011 and route number changes in 1974, 1984 and 2016-2019. If anyone else is interested in putting together material for a book on how transit has changed, I would be looking for any changes that occured between 1984 and 2016. For the transition to a fully accessible bus fleet, I have been able to come up with this much: 1992 Al
  10. I just saw 0511 in a Facebook Group. It's still in White! So 0313-0325, 0511 are the only units left in the white livery and 1101 still has its Wrap ad for WOW 97.1.
  11. Are there any Inveros still active? I spotted none today and none appear to be left at the Pinecrest Garage.

  18. New STO bus route patterns through Downtown Ottawa, two years in the making. These changes are to better connect with the O-Train and remove buses from Wellington: STO nearly exclusively ran convoys of buses right in front of Parliament on Wellington and down Rideau before turning back on King Edward towards Gatineau. Albert and Slater use to be the central Transitway. Plans still call for removing the old bus lanes, narrowing the streets from 3-4 lanes to 2-3. STO volumes are nowhere near as high as the old OC volumes, so the streets should be able to handle it.
