    Yep, Started with the Waverly Leg (via Bison and Waverly before Bishop was extended west of Pembina). Only ran Monday to Friday Added the Kenaston leg, but only during peak periods, and kept extending the route. (Victoria Hospital, Henlow, Whyte Ridge, Tuxedo Business Park, Lowson - Both ways and Ikea) Then in 2010, added Saturday Service, and operate both legs all day. Then this month, replaced the 78 Kenaston to 74, and extended service later in the evening Monday-Friday.

    Looks like they did some route training today on the 74, I notice at least 4 buses along Kenaston and Rothwell area within a couple of minutes One bus was going North down Kenaston (avoiding Lowsen, and Tuxedo Business Park) , another bus going west down Rothwell into the Tuxedo Business Park, another bus going south down Kenaston (did not see if turned into Tuxedo Business Park ), plus the bus I was in going to Polo Park.

    They finally brought Saturday (and full Kenaston service) to the 78 back in 2011?. Before that the Kenaston leg was only operating durning peak hours. I believe the 75 & 77 finally had Sunday service sometime around 2000

    Forgot to add the link http://winnipegtransit.com/en/rider-guide/news/#fallservicechange I notice that almost all the UofM routes will have changes Saturday and Sunday as well. I don't think they are the 'Extra' buses that all removed during the Spring and Summer.

    Winnipeg Transit has announced their fall schedule changes starting September 2nd The are 2 major changes: 1) The 78 routes will be split into 2 separate routes. - 78 Waverley will replaced the old 78 Cambridge leg, 74 Kenaston leg will replaced the old 78 Kenaston leg with routing down Bison and Waverley instead of Pembina, service to the Outlet Mall, only rush-hour service to Tuxedo Business Park, and Lowson Crescent, and extended hours later in the evening. 2) A major schedule change affecting all routes to the University of Manitoba to improve service frequency and reliability

    Hargrave has been closed between Portage and Ellice since last December. http://winnipegtransit.com/en/schedules-maps-tools/service-advisories/3429 It sound like, the new routing will take into account the detour.

    It doesn't look the 4th bus without the number, has a front license plate, and can't tell if 998 has a front plate either.

    Changes to Route 78 be come in effect Sept 2018. http://clkapps.winnipeg.ca/DMIS/ViewDoc.asp?DocId=17012&SectionId=&InitUrl= The 78 Cambridge will stay as is. However the 78 Kenaston route will become 74 Kenaston Crosstown, and be: 1) Rerouted through Bison and Waverley (South of Bishop Grandin) instead of Pembina. 2) Service to the Outlet Collection of Winnipeg (with time connections with the 84) 3) Service to Tuxedo Business Park and Lowson Cresent during peak hours. 4) Service will be extended to 11 pm. While riding the 78 Kenaston, I notice they are a lot of international students, who use the Pembina / University Cres bus spot and transfer onto the 78 Kenaston to travel to MITT on Henlow Bay. Once the new 74 service they will have to find a new way to get to MITT.

    TransLink (Vancouver) will bring 4 electric buses to Vancouver next year. The bus displayed in Vancouver is light blue compared to a bright green at the legislature. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/electric-battery-bus-charging-translink-1.4619147

    Would like to see them on evenings and on weekends. I think the 162/170 could use them more than the 160. However I believe some of stops in Fort Richmond can't handle the Artics
