My TTC e-Alerts - They work

The TTC was kept busy on Sunday sending My TTC e-Alerts.

A section of the Scarborough RT service is currently shut down from Kennedy Station to McCowan Station. Shuttle buses are in service.

The first alert arrived at 1/18/09 9:05 AM. The last one arrived at 1/18/09 2:25 PM. There never was an e-Alert notifying that full TTC service resumed by 2:30 PM.

I did get a chuckle from the content of the message. "A section of the Scarborough RT service is currently shut down from Kennedy Station to McCowan Station." To me that is not a section of the line, but rather the entire route.

The problem of having to close the SRT because of snow (not the first or last time) should be another another nail in the coffin of this rail line. The politicians should wake up to the fact that the Bloor Danforth subway needs to extended to at least the Scarborough Town Centre.
