  1. I don't know it's whole history, but on a 1985 map I have it started at Kootenay Loop, ran east on Hastings to Sperling, then south to Broadway, then via Broadway, Bainbridge, then following the 110 route along Government to the current site of Production Way Station. At that point, it ran west on Lougheed to Underhill, when it turned north. It turned onto Forest Grove, serving part of the current 136, before turning onto Eastlake and serving that road and Cameron as the 110 does now before ending at Lougheed.
  2. Vancouver Special Sightings

    That's probably from mid-2016, when the bus was freshly delivered and being drive from Port Kells to RTC.

  4. MiWay

    To clarify the situation with Transit55; the feed from my MiWay (or any other agency) only includes the vehicle number, not the year/make/model. Any linking of the raw vehicle numbers to bus models is done by the webmaster, who will do it when he has the time/inclination to do so. Until then, the new buses will show up on the site without any bus model linked to them.

    CMBC E40LFR 2195 running past Christmas lights in Downtown Vancouver.
  6. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    West Van already took over the three CMBC routes. They took over the North Van shuttle work (214 off peak, 227 and C15). As for the routes being taken over from First; I have heard it will be the C3 and C4 in New West and the 609 Tsawassen First Nation.
  7. 2019 Double-Decker bus Procurement

    We do know which transit centre they will run out of. There's a line in the capital plan to upgrade RTC to accommodate double deckers.

  9. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    Today's 24 Hours had an article on the double decker trial. The most interesting part was the end of the article where it said "Translink will include the cost of 32 diesel double decker buses in its upcoming request to Metro for federal gas-tax money. Give of those buses will help expand the fleet and 27 will replace existing buses". Looks like Translink has already made up its mind to go with deckers.

    From last Wednesday, Interurban car 1231 being loaded up at Olympic Village to be transported to Cloverdale.
  11. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    The clockwise runs (6 Davie/5 Downtown) are Novas, while the counter clockwise runs (5 Robson/6 Downtown) are trolleys.
  12. St. Albert Transit

    No, you don't get to claim ignorance on this. 890-894 were delivered in 2015, and you know 853-857 were active after that delivery because you were told they were active in the St Albert thread in August 2017. You also annoyed people then, when you tried to insist they were retired despite the sightings by people actually in the Edmonton area. That was also after the BYD's had entered service, so you knew 853-857 had survived that order as well. https://cptdb.ca/topic/3946-st-albert-sightings/?page=31 So, the bottom line is, you had no reason at all to suspect that 853-857 were retired, much less make a demand that they be moved to the retired section. I don't know what your obsession with these buses being retired is, but I'm telling you to cut it out now. You are nowhere near St Albert Transit, so leave it alone. There are people in the Edmonton section who will update things when these buses actually get retired.
  13. St. Albert Transit

    No that will not be happening. They are still active (except for 855). You aren't even from around Edmonton, so what business or justification do you have making this demand in the first place? You have no data or evidence to suggest they are retired. Just because people haven't posted sightings on the board doesn't mean they are retired. Given that the majority of them remained in active service after the delivery of the BYD's earlier this year, and that St Albert has received no new buses since then, the logical assumption would be that they would still be in service.
