The volume of inbound and outbound passengers is gradually increasing as the Municipal Government’s Integrated Bus Station (IBT) has resumed 24/7 operations with the de-escalation of Zamboanga City’s quarantine status to alert level 1 from March 1 to 15, 2022.

The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases placed the city under Alert Level 1 from March 1-15, as cases of the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) continue to decline .

Rafael Derick Evangelista, head of oversight at IBT, said on Tuesday March 8 that the volume of incoming passengers has increased to 1,000, while departure has increased to 1,100 per day from just over 500 travelers previously at the arrival and departure.

“Passenger numbers have increased since we resumed 24/7 operations starting Saturday,” Evangelista said.

Evangelista said they normally serve some 2,500 to 3,000 outbound passengers a day on a normal day, and up to 10,000 a day during the Christmas season and the election period before the Covid-19 pandemic.

But Evangelista said the IBT only served less than 100 outbound passengers with a similar number of inbound passengers during the health pandemic.

Evangelista said they handle a total of 56 inbound and outbound trips per day across eight routes.

They are: Zamboanga-Dipolog, 20 years old; Zamboanga-Pagadien, 25; Zamboanga-Cagayan de Oro, six; Zamboanga-Sirawai, one; Zamboanga-Olutanga, one; Zamboanga-Cebu, one; and Zamboanga-Bacolod via Dumaguete, two.

Evangelista reminded travelers, especially overseas, to always bring their vaccination records.

The local IATF requires inbound travelers from areas with a higher alert level to show a negative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test result upon entering Zamboanga town. (SunStar Zamboanga)

The City of Toronto just unveiled big plans to completely revamp eight pieces of downtown land – including some iconic historic buildings – that he owns and will “unlock” for all-new uses in years to come.

Among the sites are the recently defunct 91-year-old coach terminal in Bay and Dundas, the William McBrien Building in Yonge and Davisville (which houses the headquarters of the TTC), and a low-rise building in the same post-war modernist style in concrete from the town hall, tucked away just behind.

Also on the list are 33 Queen St. E, 931 Yonge St., 277 Victoria St., 95 The Esplanade and 18 Dyas Road, which are currently occupied by Green P, Toronto Community Housing and various City of Toronto departments.

The ambitious reimagining of the land plots – which have a total real estate value of $450 million – is part of ModernTO, a program that aims to modernize and better optimize city-owned office space, which totals over three million square feet across 55 sites, whether leased or owned.

The project, led by CreateTO approved by the board back in January 2020notes that these spaces are outdated and inefficiently used, and suggests that the City reduce them to just 15, selling the rest.

The aforementioned eight buildings are the first to be transformed to better serve the city’s needs, such as creating more affordable housing, improving the public realm and other opportunities, with the ModernTO team releasing their latest update. Monday.

Going forward, there will be a host of public consultations to decide what the final details of the plans will be for each, with some of the land slated for major redevelopment, and some for less drastic alterations.

At present, it is recommended that the iconic bus terminal be razed for a high-rise tower that will provide market condos, rental and affordable housing, as well as a paramedic “multi-hub”, offices and more.

Given the heritage nature of 610 Bay, its Art Deco exterior, at least, will likely be incorporated into the design.

For 277 Victoria, the plan is another mixed-use development that will be primarily institutional in nature, with some commercial and community space on the lower two levels.

The building in Yonge and Rosedale Valley will also become a “high-rise mixed-income, mixed-use development to include affordable housing”, although it will be on a smaller scale than others, given the neighborhood’s existing density. and adjacent buildings. green spaces.

As for the additional lots, there are solid recommendations, apart from some minor reallocations of spaces for different uses of the city: 18 Dyas will be adapted to accommodate a paramedic multifunction station hub, while 95 L’Esplanade will be given a facelift to include an entrepreneur and an incubator. spaces, with the potential to sell the building in the future.

While a lot of work has gone into the project so far, it’s obvious that there’s still a lot to do before we see what the final iterations of each property will be and what benefits they will bring to the public and to city operations. .

All buses operated by the Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority will be free for at least two years starting Tuesday, a move hailed by officials as a “game changer”.

lower prices, announced in december, will be effective on all local MVRTA bus routes. Transport authorities hope this will re-attract passengers lost during the COVID pandemic and open buses to people struggling to afford rides.

Also on Tuesday, three of Boston’s most popular bus routes kick off two years of free service. The city plans to reimburse the MBTA for rides on the 23, 28 and 29 buses, which pass through Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan.

For the MVRTA, charging a fee to ride the buses has proven to be an expensive and inefficient system. The agency ultimately received less than 25% of the money paid in fares, said Noah Berger, the MVRTA administrator. The rest was reallocated to fare collection.

Officials also hope the change will win back passengers who have stopped riding the bus during the pandemic, create faster journeys when drivers spend less time collecting fares, reduce conflicts between drivers and passengers and to open the buses to people who could not otherwise afford them.

Following a unanimous vote to eliminate tariffs by the MVRTA board in December, Rep. Lori Trahan, who represents the Merrimack Valley in Congress, called the decision a “game changer for people.” in the region who depend on public transport for their journeys.

MVRTA and MBTA will pay for the initiative with federal funds. Trahan said she was proud to have voted for the CARES Act, one of the COVID-19 relief programs that allocated money bus agencies will use to cover free service.

“I’m really excited about this pilot,” MVRTA spokeswoman Niorka Mendez said. “Free travel will attract new passengers, increase footfall to our local businesses, provide economic relief to families who rely on our service, and connect people to jobs and other economic opportunities.”

The removal of fare collection boxes on Monday came with a touch of symbolic fanfare. MVRTA workers rolled the boxes – adorned with a large circular red “X” – off buses at the Buckley Transportation Center in Lawrence, video captured by State Representative Andy Vargas show. Inside the windows of the bus station, images shot by the Boston Globe showed a collection of multicolored zero-shaped balloons.

The MVRTA also participates in a pilot program allowing buses to operate on the shoulders during peak hours. Buses traveling on the highway can often get stuck in traffic, making them less likely to reliably arrive at stops on time.

For the next two years, MVRTA buses will be permitted to operate on the shoulder of Interstate 93 between where it crosses Interstate 95 in Woburn and the entrance to the high occupancy vehicle lane in Somerville – for a stretch of about seven miles.

“There’s no better marketing promotion for public transit than seeing our bus pass you in its own lane, while you’re stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the freeway,” Berger said.

A row of eight new public bathrooms on Victoria Street in Hamilton are touted as safer, cleaner and harder to vandalize (Photograph by Akil Simmons)

The new public bathrooms will be safer, easier to clean and better protected against vandals, the Corporation of Hamilton said yesterday.

Charles Gosling, Mayor of Hamilton, said: “What makes this design unique is the fact that we have removed the shared bathroom space.

“The public will have access to individual private bathrooms with their own sinks and hand dryers.”

Mr Gosling spoke as he unveiled the eight individual toilets on Victoria Street near the bus station.

The old-fashioned public toilets were closed last March for renovations.

The work was carried out by Gorham’s Management Design.

Mr Gosling said the stainless steel-equipped bathrooms would be a model for other public restrooms in the city.

He added: ‘We haven’t gone into specifics in terms of location, but the bathrooms across from Bermuda Industrial Union are in desperate need of an upgrade.

“We need to see if this single-use bathroom concept is welcomed.”

Mr Gosling said he was “very disappointed” that one of the units had already been targeted for an attempted break-in.

He added: “Historically this has been a target of vandalism due to them being in an area with heavy foot traffic.”

But he said security cameras outside bathrooms will make it easier for city officials to track down people who try to damage the toilets.

PARSIPPANY, NJ — If you’re taking the train or bus around Parsippany, do you have to leave home very early in case it’s late or cancelled? New Jersey Transit data can help you make this decision.

Governor Phil Murphy signed a decree in November 2019, prompting NJ Transit to release metrics dating back to January 2017 on how often trains arrive late or are canceled on each line. Murphy intended to offer transparency and potential indications of progress with state transit.

As a result, NJ Transit launched its “Performance in numbers” dashboard, which now contains data on delays and cancellations going back five years. So, is the public transport that goes through Parsippany up to scratch? Here’s what the data shows:

Take the train

Two NJ Transit rails run through the Parsippany area: the Morris & Essex line, which stops at Mount Tabor and Morris Plains stations, and the Montclair-Boonton line, which stops at its namesake Boonton.

In January, 93.4% of NJ Transit trains on the Montclair-Boonton line left each stop on time, meaning they left within six minutes of schedule. The mark is just short of NJ Transit’s goal of 94.7% of trains departing on time.

(N.J. Transit)

Over the past five years, trains on the Montclair-Boonton line had the best results in April 2020, when 99.1% of trains departed on time. The line’s worst month in the last five years came in November 2018, when just 77.5% of trains had on-time departures.

During this period, the Montclair-Boonton line only reached the 93.4% mark in a few months: February 2018, April-June 2020 and April and May of last year.

On the Morris & Essex line, 91.1% of trains were on time last month, which is also below NJ Transit’s target.

(N.J. Transit)

Over the past five years, Morris & Essex Line trains had the best results in May 2020, when 98.7% of trains departed on time. The line’s worst month in the past five years came in November 2018, when just 78.4% of trains had on-time departures.

Meanwhile, the Morris & Essex line only hit the 94.7% mark in just a few months: February 2018, April to June 2020, September to October 2020, January 2021 and last April.

The bus

NJ Transit does not display as much line-specific data for buses as it does for trains. But overall, buses from major terminals exceeded the agency’s goal of 90% leaving stops within six minutes of the schedule.

Last month, NJ Transit buses from major terminals were on time 95.5% of the time. Here are the hourly departure rates in January from each main terminal:

  • Atlantic City Bus Station: 95.6%
  • Hoboken Terminal: 98.6%
  • Irvington Bus Station: 98.6%
  • Newark Penn Station: 97.6%
  • Port Authority Bus Station: 94.7%
  • Walter Rand Transportation Center: 90%

Here is a comparison of the performance of these buses since 2009:

These are violent times. Too much. And crime, as a social expression, is not excluded from this scourge.

Week after week, this diary gives an account of innumerable criminal episodes, where brutality is the distinctive note.

Very often without any reason justifying it, the savagery shown by the thieves aggravates an already terrible fact in itself.

In recent hours, to cite an example, a very serious case of insecurity has occurred. It was at the bus station, where a 36-year-old man assaulted a woman with the aim of depriving her of various items of her property.

However, that was not the only thing. To intimidate his victim, the attacker showed him a hammer, which he took out of a backpack.

According to the above, the arrest was made by local police and GTO personnel from the second precinct, after a complaint to 911.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers found the suspect, who was very excited.

The victim, a 38-year-old woman from the federal capital, said the accused threatened her and asked for her belongings.

In these circumstances, thanks to a rapid operation, the accused was captured without the act being consummated.

The subject remained at the disposal of the UFI 1 of La Plata.

WITHOUT MERCY

In the middle of last week, another brutal crime-related case was registered in La Plata.

It was when three criminals staged a violent attack on a family in the La Loma neighborhood.

It happened on Calle 42 between 19 and 20, where the attackers, as this newspaper reported, in addition to taking money, threatened to rape a minor.

According to the spokespersons, those involved entered taking advantage of the fact that the front door was open. Inside was a 49-year-old employee with his 78-year-old mother and 20-year-old son; In addition, a 62-year-old neighbor and her 4-year-old granddaughter had visited.

Quickly and under threat, the criminals whittled everyone down and began searching the premises for cash.

As noted, in addition to handcuffing them, they threatened to sexually abuse the little girl to achieve their goal. However, they only seized around 19,000 pesos and got away, although they didn’t get very far.

It is that, as soon as they set foot in the street, they were received by several police officers, who already knew that they were inside.

Apparently, thanks to a neighbor who heard noises and saw strange movements in the place, the operation was triggered.

The attackers were from the southern area of ​​Greater Buenos Aires and are still being held in a case led by prosecutor Betina Lacki.
