On Friday afternoon, I was at the DRT Pickering base. This is a bus storage facility that The City of Pickering Works Department shares with DRT. This garage has a no nonsense lead hand (Louie) in charge. He showed me a pleasant surprise. All of the buses with luminators have been updated to reflect the new 915 and 916 routes. In addition, the Ajax routes have a route number and name. Another bonus is that the Audley North and South route are back into the luminator program. I am sure that David Harrison will be happy to hear this news.
Did anyone notice the change to the bus stops at the Ajax Go Station? As of Friday last, the route names were removed from the stops at the bus platforms. They have been replaced with stops that have the route number only. The same thing has happened at the Ajax Plaza Terminal and the Pickering Go Station.
Take note that the new R-916 Rossland route when traveling on Harwood will not enter the Ajax Plaza Terminal. North and south bus stops will be located on the street.
