There are 28 people waiting to get on a 45 Hurdman UOttawa. I am not impressed. This is the 1st stop. I just got on. No seats left and still a few drops on this route. I'm so freakin mad. This is a hospital route. How loud do I have to say it!??????!!!!!!! #ottawrt #octranspo
2nd stop of the 45 route. Bus is packed to capacity. @OC_Transpo this is unacceptable. This is a hospital route. That means patients and staff at TOH and CHEO will have to keep waiting longer for a bus to Hurdman. A gap already of 49 minutes. @maddyeisenberg

This will be unpopular. Please read full thread before telling me off. #transit #octranspo #meeting #ottpoli 1/n
The Nov 6th #Transit Commission will be extraordinary meeting and should be treated as such. #ottpoli
This #transit meeting should NOT include public delegations. It should be committee of whole with all active councillors and the citizen commissioners. #ottpoli

LRT update begins now. How close are we from riding the rails? We might find out. #ottpoli
First up, the derailment last week. GM John Manconi says "human error" on switch movement. Train was moving at the right speed, one set of wheels off track at a switch. The switches are manually controlled in the yard (on the main line they're auto).
"Minor repairs" required to the switch, Manconi says. The train is fine.

LRT update starts with virtual tour of a train. Then a pretty pic of Parliament Station. #ottpoli
Manconi: RTG has "done some amazing work" in recent weeks. Significant progress, he says. But adds "winter ops" as a ninth area to watch.
He gets into the Alstom Citadis Spirit trains. He says they've been used around the world and adapted to the local environment. (Though this Spirit version was designed for Ottawa).
