A dot marks the spot the place the publish for a TTC bus prevent went lacking in Flemingdon Park.
There’s one foolproof option to determine a TTC bus or streetcar prevent: A pole with the TTC’s acquainted red-and-white markings on the most sensible of it could all the time be discovered on the nook.
Each and every TTC floor prevent within the town is known through the marker, which makes it simple for individuals who aren’t common public transit customers to understand the place the bus or streetcar will grind to a halt.
But if it’s lacking, it insects individuals who consider there’s a spot for the whole thing, and the entirety will have to be instead.
Amongst the ones sticklers is Felipe Scarpelli, who despatched us an e mail pronouncing a TTC submit on the intersection of Grenoble Dr. and Spanbridge Rd. went lacking final summer time and has but to get replaced.
“3 months in the past, contractors repaved the sidewalk, which resulted within the removing of a TTC bus pole that existed at the sidewalk,” stated Scarpelli.
“Every week after the removing, staff marked a inexperienced spot at the floor the place the pole was (proper in entrance of a prevent signal, by way of the best way), and citizens assumed the town/TTC would substitute the pole at that location.
“Rapid ahead 3 months, and the marking continues to be at the sidewalk.
“That is regarding because the prevent sits in entrance of a group centre in a space with a number of faculties, with loads of scholars commuting there each day.
“I consider the town and the TTC should not take a number of months to paintings on one thing significantly easy.”
We went there and noticed no indicators of a TTC publish, however we did discover a inexperienced dot spray-painted at the sidewalk close to a prevent signal, which seems to be love it’s intended to mark one thing or different.
There’s a transit safe haven at the similar nook, about 15 metres clear of the dot, which is as just right an indication as any that the bus stops there. It’s now not like folks must seek for the prevent.
However rule are regulations, and the TTC’s rule (or no less than coverage) is that a submit marks each and every prevent.
STATUS: We’ve requested the TTC, which more than likely doesn’t know the publish has long past lacking, if it could actually organize to have it changed ASAP.
