  1. Awesome, thanks for sharing those photos! Irizar has only recently entered the US market but as mentioned by @TheAverageJoe they do operate in many other parts of the world. I think that bumper is US spec. In the UK they are painted in the full blue livery:
  2. There are a lot of photographs of 152 so it can definitely be shown that it operated in Edmonton. http://etspe.ca/ets/1981-1982hr150g.php?s=260&sort=fleetnum&showinfo=1
  3. I think that the rename is part of the overall effort to revamp the transit service here in Edmonton. I do have hope that Eddie Robar is able to bring about some positive changes. In this article, this quote reminded me of the name change. http://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/board-wants-to-make-edmonton-transit-accountable-to-bus-riders
  4. These are a couple of photos I took on December 24, 2016 of where the old downtown Edmonton Greyhound depot used to stand, on 104 Avenue and 104 Street. The photos are facing south/west.
  5. Awesome, thanks for sharing that photo!
  6. Have you tried to clear your cookies, or trying a different browser?
  7. Just speculation, but maybe they were leases from the beginning, and the lease is up now?
  8. Thanks for the info!
  9. Looks like it is 12 years, and also being claimed as "lifetime" - though I imagine that means the lifespan of the bus is 12 years and those running the buses longer will not have warranty coverage. http://www.byd.com/na/ebus/ebus.html
  10. Changed.
  11. Maybe, though that market generally isn't large. For example, the ElDorado Axess.
  12. Mix 107.9 has a new radio ad about the new buses in Fort Saskatchewan. They are advertising with the URL GoFortTransit.ca
  13. Yes, that is the likely issue. @Transitfan39 was there anything helpful under "More Information"?

  15. Looks like it used to be Happy Coach Line! http://etspe.ca/coach/coachviewpic.php?pic=other/happyline131.jpg Someone took the time to paint the front stripes blue too.
