Currently, HTC operates approximately 40 bus routes (be it full time, rush hour, or limited services), 3 ferry routes, and 2 express bus routes in our service areas. We generate an approximately $3,000,000 annual income, with a NET REVENUE of about $1,000,000 per year.
Some stats about the HTC:
- We operate an upwards of 400,000 bus trips per annum (as of 1950), which is about a bus trip every 1-2 minutes.
- HTC operates a fleet size of about 100 vehicles, and still growing.
Enough with the text and the facts (as I'm sure you're already bored of it), here are some sneek peeks to future updates.
Figure 1. City of Torbury (1940 population: 56,000) satellite imagery.
Figure 2. List of all the operating bus routes in the year of 1940. The list has currently expanded its size, as you will discover in our next entry.
Route names in BLACK are deemed making revenue; names in RED are deemed losing money.
Figure 3. City Avenue (now named as Promenade Mezzo Vesper and Promenade Mezzo Aurora) and Main Street under satellite imagery in the year 1940. Today, the intersection is more developed and more busy, with the Torbury City Stop being renamed to MacKenzie Fields Stop.
Figure 4. Torbury Ferry Terminal across the Torbury River from the rest of the Torbury city proper in the year 1947. The terminal was still in construction in the year 1947.
Figure 5. Torbury Centre Terminal in the year 1949 after a major renovation. Until this date, Torbury Centre Terminal is often congested and is in need of a major upgrade.
And that's all for the sneak peek!

P.S. For those who are also following the WATERSAUGA Natural + Smart Growth Journal. It is not in our plans to abandon it, but instead of WEEKLY MEETINGS we are modifying to a Bi-Weekly meeting instead. This journal as well, would be operating on a bi-weekly basis.
