I didn't make the cut. I suspect I'm not a frequent-enough transit user!

Same here. It was nice of them to send out a rejection email, though!

They will keep our names on file for future betas. I feel like I'm applying for jobs again.

Yup. I'm a cash/ticket buyer, which was specified in the e-mail, so I was told pick-up between March 1 and 9.

I hadn't known about the 20% discount. Bonus.

I wasn't selected. Oh well. Sad Hopefully the beta period will be short and they do a full roll out soon.

Me too! March 1st pick-up.

Cambridge AND/OR Kitchener.

So they're not sure of which city or both? That's how I am reading it.

Going to be good times as the two cities duke it out for superiority. Shall be buying popcorn for this main event.
Meanwhile in Waterloo.......

From Ayr to the 401/97, the bus is heading towards Sportsworld anyway, which is not much further than Ainslie would be. There, you have connections to Go and Greyhound, and you're also closer to the centre of the Region, and the GRT connections would be more useful to more people.

Unless there are appreciably more people commuting to Cambridge from Ayr (maybe there are), I would guess Sportsworld would make more sense.
