    Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    You can call me old fashioned but I still say thank you to the driver as I board. I guess as a little kind gesture of appreciation for providing me with a service.

    First thing that came to my mind was this.

    Transit in Vancouver: Questions and Answers

    I guess with that logic on days like that if I see a Lamborghini parked on the road I should be able to hop inside of it because I don’t wanna deal with the elements outside 🙄🙄🙄🙄
  5. First thing that comes to my mind would be that those big freight trucks do have a manual transmission, so the driver can manually downshift accordingly to maximize the torque to push it up that hill. With the bus it has to downshift automatically to get enough torque and power to push it up. I'm not mechanic or that knowledgeable about this kind of stuff but this is just my assumption as that's what I saw my dad do when he was going up big hills in a 18 wheeler.

    You do realize how big our system is right ... the 3 you’ve seen is probably like 3 out of hundreds in the system.
  7. Will we finally see shuttles on the 99 B-Line
  8. Would completely scrapping the nightbus network and just providing 24 hour service on major FTN routes be an option ?

    Translink Refurbishments

    I'm pretty sure all of those buses have already been refurbished years ago. If you look through this thread, you'd probably find posts about those D60LF's undergoing refurbishment.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    So basically the 98 B-Line but extended to Riverport ...
  11. If we’re talking about over looked routes especially in Surrey, I’d have to say the 319 is pretty underrated. It’s Surrey’s busiest and most over crowded route and is the least studied corridor. Pass ups are a daily thing even with the slight increases every year or so.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Random thought came to my head not so long ago If Metro Vancouver was told that over 10 million people would be moving into the region over the course of the next 10 years. What do you think Translink would do to cope with the drastic population growth. A few ideas I came up were: - A bi-directional loop line around the downtown area. Starting from Waterfront station heading west on Pender St -> south on Denman towards English Bay -> east on Beach Blvd -> cut across false creek to Granville Island -> along 6th Ave -> north on Main St -> then towards Chinatown and back at Waterfront Stn. - Having the 3, 8, 10, 20, 43, 44, 49, 95, 100,130, 239, 319, 320, 321, 375, 502, 601, and 701 turn into either a Skytrain or Subway Line. - Have all routes that currently operate to near FTN levels to become FTN routes - All day bi-directional service on the West Coast Express with dedicated tracks. - New commuter rail service between Surrey Central Stn and Chilliwack with stops in Abbotsford. -New all day express train service paralleling the Expo Line.
