Is the Peg planning anything? Is George Bush preparing to end the war?

They're buying more buses and putting in heated shelters. That's their $140M transit plan.

New trains are starting to phase out the old now.


Our new streetcars to be phased in soon.


And our new subways being phased in this year I think.

Yep, they've got 20 DE60LFR's on order, with a few having arrived for testing. Supposedly they are to be used on the route 60 there.

Each DE60LFR is around $900,000 so $18 million in total the rest of $122 million for heated shelters?

The DE60LFR works great here in Hamilton, they make nice turns around sharp corners. Though we don't get harsh winter compared to Winnipeg. The City just ordered another 18 DE60LFRs.

Sometime in 2009.

I really with they'd curve the sides on those things though, especially if it were downward like the E231 series on the Yamanote Line. Those are nice.

They've also got 33 40 footers (not sure if D40LFR or DE40LFR though) on order, which is another $15M or so.

In the Old Port they're very common, but much less in ordinary bike paths.



By the way, Toronto is really getting new subways soon? ours will come in like 4 years...

Halifax has the standard bus system plus two BRT routes (MetroLink) and two ferry routes (DT Dartmouth and Woodside). Funding has been secured for a third ferry route to Bedford.

Here are what the old ferries look like, from Wikipedia:


MetroLink bus from the Transport Canada website - a full gallery of the shelters, lanes, intersection setups, etc. is shown at http://www.tc.gc.ca/Programs/Environ...esHalifax.htm:

If you could, you know, follow their terms of service and post a link to the photographer of that image, that would be just super.

Those subways look very sleek. Those new streetcars look nice too although somehow I like the old cars better.
