Ok thanks Chrome I will program Hamilton area and GTA and see what I get
It depends what area of Peel. Morriston is located at Hwy 6 and the 401 in Wellington County. There are bases that cover the 401, 403, 410.

The Burlington Talkgroup seems to have units patrolling the QEW, Highway 427 & the 401 as far as Hwy 400 or Weston Road. I dont know where the MTO bases are in Peel. I know there is a MTO yard at Kipling Ave in the 416, maybe thats the bases for the Patrol area you will hear on the Niagara (patched or has taken over the talkgroup Burlington).

If anyone cares, our crappy winter is giving the MTO out on the Kings highways. Keep a listen out for these and please share your info in this sites wiki site.

There's been an MTO yard on the northeast corner of 401 & Hurontario for many years. It's very active but I'm sure I've never seen a Fleetnet t/g associated with it specifically.

Yes I always see that yard when I get off the highway there. Those trucks parked in the yard are the trucks contracted out to plow the highway I think the company is TWD?

0143.8050 is a truck to truck and fairly powerful simplex channel used by plows right across the 401 from Scaborough to Mississauga.
