Beta Testing the New TTC.ca

ttcHas it really been two years since I complained on this site about how totally crappy the official TTC website was? Here's what I wrote that fine May 2006 morning.

Finally, if you want to see how out of touch TTC marketing is in this new age of viral communique, one needs to look no further than their official web site. It's one of the worst commercial sites I've ever come across and a complete embarrassment. If you're interested in a challenge, try and learn from ttc.ca what a single adult fare would cost you today. Good luck! The official TTC site looks especially horrible when compared to Transit Toronto, a fan site that's vastly superior to the TTC sanctioned site.

Today I give you the beta version of the new ttc.ca. I remember being completely baffled by the old site just trying to figure out how much damn tickets cost and here's that information clearly listed on the home page. Wow.

And wait... is that what I think it is? It can't be... but it is! An RSS feed for service alerts... I think I'm going to cry.

TTC, welcome to 2000s.

Finally a website that doesn't look like it was built by a 15 year-old in the mid 90s! Way to go TTC!

It'll never get finished - the webmaster will go on strike over the weekend before it's to go live...it still pales in comparision to other public transit sites in North America...

elvis you are probably right the webmaster will strike for better wages and compain that treat him like crap even though he himself is rude. what's more is that scheduales are only good if the transit people can actually honour those scheduales,. when's the last time something was on time?? or, at least, when is the last time the TTV provided Exceptional Service, the kind toronto commuters deserve for making a Green choice.
