Jan 16, 2007
After a mild and snow less winter,
January 15, 2007 became a day of testing for the transit systems of the GTA. With freezing rain and snow fall, Durham Region Transit held it’s own. A number of yellow school bus companies had to cancell their runs. In west, DRT managed to keep all of the bus routes running. DRT was able to bring in some extra drivers to be on standby. This was a great difference from past experiences where there were no extra buses that could fill in when the regular runs were running late. The big disappointment of the day was Go Transit. With frozen switches, the Go Trains were running late or not at all. In the last year, Go has been having their problems.
