  2. A photo of Bayview Station taken from the local bus platform along Scott Street. Taken: November 6th, 2019.
  3. You're right, my apologies! It's Lyon Station. (Here's a terrible photo I took when it opened showing the green for Parliament).
  4. I think it may be Lyon as the walls are Yellow and Parliament's are Green. Nice pic!

  8. 2020 Year-end Review January 2021 The Stage 2 LRT team has made progress in 2020 building the O-Train East, West and South extensions that will add 44 km of new rail and 24 new stations to the Ottawa’s light-rail network. O-Train South Extension Significant progress was made in 2020 for the O-Train South Extension, one of three major extensions to Ottawa’s Stage 2 LRT system. Since the provincial government man

  10. The end of this video indicates that the traffic lights on the south Queensway off-ramp to Riverside will finally be getting proper poles and the signals will remain 12-12-12s.
  11. Hi @Antoine. Very interesting ideas in your latest map. As there has been some issue surrounding related topics recently, I would ask if you can re-post the map without the City of Ottawa logo appearing. Thank you for your understanding.
  12. Any thoughts/comments on my most recent fantasy (still realist) transit map?
  13. Both parking of bikes and cars have free and paid tiers. Maybe gold permit pass holders should have a cozy sheltered parking space? After all, the paid tier of a gold permit vs paid bike parking many times more expensive for the reasons you mentioned below (road repair). Charging for any parking, car or bike, is not a good way to incentivize anyone to mix up their commute. Imagine paying X amount/month for a car or bike, then have to pay for parking, and then have to pay bus fare for a system not even good thanks things like "optimization" and RTG's terrible start to Line 1 and what not.
  14. Although this is a great initiative, it pales in comparison to Vancouver's bike parkades with capacity for 45 bikes and services such as repair stands and air pumps. TransLink has 11 of these and seem to be expanding the program. They also have bike lockers (individual lockers) at around 30 stations. https://www.translink.ca/rider-guide/bike-parking I'm hoping the program expands in Ottawa to include more urban stations where biking is more common. The stretch from Tunney's to Lincoln Fields would get very high usage I'm sure. And if we're charging for the secu
  15. Keep your bike safe with the Bikesecure parking program On January 1, register to keep your bike safe with OC Transpo's new Bikesecure parking program! This program provides customers with a reserved parking spot in a shelter that protects their bikes against theft, vandalism and bad weather. These shelters are secured with glass walls, a door, and 24-hour video surveillance. Customers can unlock the shelter to access their bikes 24/7 using the key fob they receive after registering. Don't worry! Free bike parking is still available at most O-Train Line 1 stations, and at over 3
  16. I just want to say that this set of snapshots is among the best night photos I have ever seen. They are so clear we don't have to guess what we are looking at. Thanks to Derek for these outstanding pictures!
  17. Since 1999, I have known that buses were used for the first time in 1924, with them presumably being retired the following year. With records of buses being used in later years, I have found out that two bus routes began operating in 1929 Crosstown - Began operating on January 7, 1929. Numbered route 6 on June 29, 1959. Renumbered 56 on April 23, 2017. Templeton - Began operating on May 18, 1959. Replaced by route 4 on September 28, 1959.
  18. Video has been posted. Here's what I was able to get as apart of the demolition.
  19. Correct. Confirmed retired units are all 02XX and 0304. Last saw an 02 (0201) on March 3rd, 2020
  20. @Loud-Invero mentioned on the CPTDB at he has a retirement list for the 02-03 LFSes.
  21. We visited the site of the future Queensview station today. Other than construction fencing, absence of trees and dirt, not much to report. We didn't think it was worth taking pics. At Pinecrest I think there was a pile driver between the westbound on ramp and the Queensway, but that was it.
  22. To view Snapshot Updates for the O-Train, taken during Stage 1 and Stage 2 from 2018-2021, please visit the O-Train Fans site here : https://www.railfans.ca/otrain/snapshot

  24. Trillium Line Trench Widening Notice of Construction December 2020 As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Trillium Line South Extension Project, work has begun to prepare the trench between Highway 417 and Beech Street for rock excavation. Due to Ministry of Transportation requirements to protect the 417 structures in the area, crews are not able to use controlled detonations to break up the rock. Instead, they will weaken the rock by drilling int
