1/ The 504 Chinguacousy Zum is going to be a bellweather for #Brampton, if it doesn't get built by 2023, this is likely going to herald the start of a series of significant problems for Brampton. It won't be the cause of it, it'll be the symptom of growing problems.
2/ The 504 Chinguacousy was supposed to be completed in 2022, to relieve significant ridership pressure on the 4/4A/104 Chinguacousy routes, the ridership pressure, but it is now being delayed until 2024+. Why? Because of other delays, and the 504 delay, will delay other things.
3/ the 504 is being delayed, because #Brampton is (running) out of bus storage space. See, the City delayed building the third transit facility so long, it was guaranteed to blow up in our face. When they started the planning it was 2018, and they expected it in 2024.

1/ A thread on redevelopment and older post-war suburbs in #Brampton.

When an older suburb is experiencing neighbourhood changeover due to long time residents dying or downsizing, many of these buildings will need serious work, enough that tearing it down might be preferable.
2/ this isn't necessarily the fault of the long time owners, it gets hard to maintain stuff when you get older, and major renovations are disruptive.
3/ depending on the lot size, subdivision of the lot probably makes the most sense, you reduce the land cost per unit, but in most of these areas, this is banned, but that won't necessarily stop a teardown.

1/25 #Brampton, I said I'd do a thread on the new bus facility, so here it is. Sorry about the delay, I've been sick and that has slowed my pace for research.

To start, I need to explain a little bit about it, the project is a storage and maintenance facility.
2/25 it will be where buses get stored overnight, and also get serviced, repairs, etc. Brampton is rapidly running out of space to store buses, in an email I got in early January 2019 from the City, I was told we would be at ideal capacity by 2020
3/25 the facilities have a design capacity for space for buses, sometimes they can be squeezed in in other locations, or parked outside overnight (highly undesirable for a bunch of reasons), but this causes many problems, I'll come back to this later in the thread.

A few weeks ago I lost my card holder that had my @PRESTOcard, @BikeShareTO, and @YMCA_Canada passes...

Storytime!
(thread)
So, yeah, one night while I was taking #BikeBrampton home, I thought I heard and ran over something. It wasn't obvious at the time what that was, so I ignored it. I realized the next morning that it must have been my cardholder because it was missing.
I checked in with lost and found with the #Brampton @GOtransit to see if anyone had turned it in. Nobody had. I decided that I wasn't going to take the chance of someone using the cards. I cancelled all of the cards that were in the holder and ordered new ones.

Good morning #Brampton, today is Wednesday, July 4, and there is no council meeting today.

I think this morning is a reasonable time to start discussing the city issues and the #onpoli election is over, and the #brampoli election is fast approaching.
The city of Brampton is currently undergoing a major housing and transportation crisis. The city has sprawled out incredibly rapidly in a disorganized fashion, consisting almost entirely of single family homes. We now have a catastrophic housing crisis in rentals, CMHC data shows
There being a 0.0% vacancy in (legal) bachelor apartments, and 1, 2, 3 bedrooms are sitting in the low 1.x range. The price? TREB estimated the median cost of a legal one bedroom at $1595. If you make $15/hour working full time, that is 4/5th of your take home pay.
