  1. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    For a few trippers, it seems reasonable... And as @Express691 said, SFU is many times harsher on these poor buses, especially when they're doing all-day service...
  2. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    I just realized this on Wikipedia right after I posted. D'oh!
  3. I wonder which routes will be affected... Maybe the C3, C4, and 609? All three routes are rather far from their South Surrey office. While I like the concept of all-door boarding... I'm somewhat annoyed that they haven't found a way to speed up bus boarding while ensuring people pay their fair share...
  4. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    In the next board report meeting minutes: https://www.translink.ca/-/media/Documents/about_translink/governance_and_board/board_minutes_and_reports/2017/Dec/20171214_open_board_meeting_report.pdf Something I noticed is that West Vancouver Blue Bus may be taking over three CMBC routes in the future, and CMBC in turn will take over three routes from First Transit. The open question right now is... which three routes will go to West Vancouver, and which three routes will be brought in-house from First Transit...
  5. If TransLink is particularly concerned about getting service back onto Willingdon between Central and Imperial, why not use one of the existing shuttle rountes to do it? e.g. C6 or C7.

    Fun stuff. On 1008 right now on its last trip back to Bridgeport. Was on 1009 earlier heading to the ferry terminal, but it got taken out of service at Steveston and was replaced with an XDE60 due to the relief driver having not been trained yet. Thankfully, 1008 was right behind to pick up the slack. Saw 1009 later heading southbound at Lander Exchange on my return trip onboard 1008; guess they found another suitable run / driver.

    Will it be running this weekend or on Monday? Don't think I can make it today

    Curious: what is the schedule like for Friday morning? Thinking of maybe catching it then.

    Curious: what is the word on the street?
  10. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Who in the world thought of the genius idea of running the store from the other side of the country!? Ugh.
  11. I looked at the November 2017 draft plan... and frankly I am just disappointed. Very little of my feedback was considered: Why are we keeping a circulator shuttle around Richmond Oval if there are FTN routes in the vicinity? What is the point of having this shuttle when there are other buses that people know will come sooner? Why is all the bus service being cut from the Knight Street Bridge, save for the 430? Why is the connectivity on that side of Richmond not getting improved? Why is it that, if I want to commute from South Vancouver to East Richmond, I have to either detour to Bridgeport or wait for a 405 in between that does not come very often? Now, the new suggestions for the November 2017 draft plan: Make C96 all-day shuttle (30 min) and extend it to Knight and Marine to retain connection to South Vancouver routes Consider whether the corridor consisting of Granville Ave and Garden City Road between Bridgeport Stn and Brighouse Stn (or portions thereof) should have FTN service. Extend 407E all the way to 22nd Street Stn via No. 6 Rd, Westminster Hwy, Boundary Rd, Ewen Ave, Howes St, and Hwy 91A. (15 min / 30 min) Return 410E to Hwy 91 between No. 6 Rd and Westminster Hwy junctions. Trade some runs with extended 407E. (7 min / 15 min) Remove redundant C94 (again) Consider extending the 609 to Ladner Exch via 41b St, 33a Ave, 34 St, River Rd, 47a Ave, Ladner Trunk Rd. New B seems redundant considering New A and C93... I would rather bump C93 frequency (30 min all day) instead. I am skeptical about New D being a success unless the destinations along the way or at the ends are strong regional draws, e.g. Tsawwassen Mills...

    I am oddly bothered by the fact that TransLink is now selling consumer goods... I mean... We're not like the transit agencies of London or NYC that have tons of history or design cues behind them... I just hope this doesn't become some sort of unplanned money drain.

    So the FVHRS is the custodian now...
  14. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    8060 and 8066 on the 49 today. Kind of a bad choice if you ask me, unless they're seriously considering letting UBC or Langara College students sleep on them.

    Oh dear... Why the cheesy wrap...
