TTC redesigns its 10-year-old Web site—finally
This afternoon, the TTC posted a preview of its new Web site on the Internet for public viewing and comments. To see it, go to their execrable current site and click on the link at the top of the page. It’s an improvement to be sure, but the truly sexy stuff—the instant updates, the trip planner, the automatic notification of service disruptions, the real-time updates on when the next vehicle will arrive at your stop—isn’t available yet. Those features will be added over the coming months. Once that’s all done, all that will remain on the TTC’s to-do list is to hire more staff, weed out the drunks and stoners among existing personnel, get more buses, trains and streetcars in service, automate the subway’s signal system, conduct a vast expansion of its service and get its union to agree to a new collective agreement. Maybe then we’ll have a transit system that lives up to its Web site.
