Mike Powell.CA: Maybe its time to steal transit ideas from Burlington?

Whoa, it’s been a while.

I’ve decided to try this blogging thing again. Basically, I spend enough time thinking about things, I might as well write them down in some place. Besides, with a municipal election coming up in 2014, I’ll probably have things to say from the peanut gallery sidelines.

Anyway, let’s ease into . . . → Read More: Mike Powell.CA: Maybe its time to steal transit ideas from Burlington?

Trashy's World: Presto- here’s the thing…

… as one of my somewhat disloyal readers has pointed out, proximity payment has been around for a while. Quite a while. So what happened with Presto? Please. Explain this to me. Help me understand. (2) Trashy, Ottawa, Ontario

Trashy's World: I’ve never understood why some…

… peeps think it is somehow cool to vandalize someone else’s property. I did a lot of crazy stuff in my youth but never once did I intentionally wreck or deface something that didn’t belong to me. I just didn’t. And it is quite costly, as reported in this article. …the city said they responded . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: I’ve never understood why some…

Trashy's World: The elimination of the ECOPASS program…

… might turn me back to my car as my way to get to work… Flawed logic alert here folks: Termination of the ECOPASS program The introduction of PRESTO will allow former ECOPASS holders to customize their travel experience while providing the convenience and flexibility to purchase as many months of transit service as they . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: The elimination of the ECOPASS program…

Trashy's World: Public transportation…

… Bus version… Barbados buses versus OCTranspo. Based on recent experience. There are 3 types of buses to take in Barbados: the full-sized buses that we have here in Ottawa (no A/C though), smaller versions of said buses… and minivans whose sole goals seem to be to cram as many peeps as possible into the . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Public transportation…

Trashy's World: Friday miscellany – robots, OC Transpo and the Leafs!

It’s about time the Board moved to do something about the negative image and messages that Christmas imparts! Way to go Androgynous, Holiday-Neutral Robot! Long may you, uh, live… Thanks to the O-dot for breaking this story… ______________________________________________________________________________________________ So a UBC study has found that we atheists are as distrusted as, um, rapists (?)

Trashy's World: Really? Seriously? OC Transpo is whining again?

This guy has gall. And is about as arrogant as one can get. Way to build positive relations, you idiot! For the record, I have ridden these buses for more than 14 years. And only once have I seen an incident where a driver was verbally abused by a customer. Only once. However, I have . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Really? Seriously? OC Transpo is whining again?

Trashy's World: Friday miscellany…

The Ontario election is underway. The latest Harris-Decima poll is somewhat encouraging, but it is early. Yet, 11 points is significant. Maybe that old Ontario tradition of going one way federally and the other provincially will hold true again. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{ The great debate: Is it “dinner” or “supper”?

Trashy's World: Public transportation – I must like it…

If you have read this blog for a while, you’ll know that I’m a big supporter of public transportation – or transport en commun as they say in French. I have used OC Transpo as my wheels to work ever since moving to Ottawa in 1997. Figure 220 work days x two trips per day […] . . . → Read More: Trashy’s World: Public transportation – I must like it…
