In recent weeks, the TCCS Annual Report for 2016-17 was released & can be viewed at

A couple of interesting points include:

1. Bike racks on buses are used 1,800 times a month on average.
2. Only the Black & Green Rapids are starting 2017-18. With the Weston Line to have increased services in 2018.
3. Implementation of the new ticketing system will start in 2017-18.
4. From 1 July 2017, TCCS takes control of Transport Policy team from EPSDD.
5. Bus operating costs were $5.53 per a kilometre. Target for 2020-21 is $5.24 per a kilometre.
6. Just under 18.3 million passengers boarded buses. That's an increase of 460,000.
7. Buses travelled 26,700,829 kilometres. An increase of 3.7% over previous year.
8. Costs per a passenger was $7.71, target was $7.92. (Something to think about the $4.60 cash fare actually paid).

Of which I contributed 2% of the average with my 30-50 B&R monthly average trips, still 1800 is quite a number, I'm surprised.
