Very interesting. The Transit Recovery plan calls for the "Standby R1 Buses" to be reinstated, to help with surge demand or Line 1 service interruptions, to mitigate crowds or people gathering too closely.
Great pictures. Thank you very much for sharing.
I still find it impressive at how quickly track has been removed. It sure does look odd seeing just the rail ties on the ground without the rail. While the already existing stations on the line will all see upgrades and expansion to accommodate the longer FLIRT trains, the real action will be seen at Gladstone and Walkley, where stations did not previously exist. Great to see they are taking no time to get started now that the line is closed (already a little over a month now).
