I have an idea for a double-decker line down RT.128 in MA.  There are large business parks out there and it would make a good connection to the city for workers.
You should maybe find a hobby or a sport, spend sometime outside perhaps.

Oh well, 18-1....

Did you see the premier honk the bus horn on CBC? Our tax dollars at work!  :evil:

I missed McSquinty honking horns, but I'm sure he has blown a few

I guess I'll be able to get a picture at the Square One terminal.
When will they start the double deckers in service?

Glad to see someone has inspected the routes these buses will serve as they're 14' high & it wouldn't do for them to run into any low overpasses.  :-) Can you say Murphys Law?  :? :roll:

Yes, its funny that the government can break their own laws & run over height  vehicles but a private firm would be told "no way". And as you say, sooner or later Murphy is going to bite them in the @ss.  :-o

 8-) 8-)  Yep Yep I say again We in the Industry are Paid to Drive Not to Think !! I'm so Thankful I can leave that all behind. But to think of all the Proffessional Seat Cushion Testers that Know it All and Mismanage the Industry. Every major Transit Property in Ontario will have to take the Double Decker Buses whether they like them or not. Ottawa alone has one they've been testing, right from the get go the Air Quality riding inside of them is in Question. They want them on a High Volume route which would be down the Transitway. OOOPPPPS How many Bridges do the Buses pass Under along the Transitway?? Right now they can only clear by staying in the centre lane , oh my Health & Safety won't like this . The Bus can't come to the Curb to make a proper Service Stop. Pitty the Poor %$#^ who woke up at the last minute realizing that was his stop coming up and he's on the Top Deck during Rush Hour.

I finally caught one at the Streetsville GO station in July.
I posted the picture in my bus collection on the main website.

Nice bus. Glad to see it's been avoiding those low overpasses so far.  :-P
