    Metro Area Transit (Omaha, NB) # 9407, a Flxible Metro, is seen on N 31st Avenue after just having departed the North Omaha Transit Center. Twelve Flxibles are still active in Omaha but are expected to be retired by the end of the year when 12 new Alexander Dennis Enviro 200 buses arrive.

    That is good to see that the bus is still around. The Fitzjohn is owned by Reg DeNure.

    The wording could have been a little better. While it states extended service during peak hours, it does not apply to every route. The route listed have some kind of a schedule change, but not necessarily weekday peak periods. Most of the changes on the routes occurred during Sunday evenings, which is why the route is listed in the change list. The only weekday peak period schedule changes are on 5, 6, 7, 8, 20, 25, 26, 56. The changes on 6/7/8 are due to one bus being added during the peak periods with more running time allocated on route 6 which should help drivers to keep to schedule better.

    2018 TTS Fan Trips

    Please note that the start point for the ALRV charter has been revised. Streetcars are currently not operating on Victoria due to the condition of the track so the start point has been moved to Church Street southbound, south of Queen. The start time is still the same at 10:30 AM.

    The ALRV charter is now sold out. If you wish to be added to the waiting list in the event of a cancellation, please let me know. There is still plenty of space left for the Saturday Eastern Ontario highway coach charter.

    CTHF 2018 Fan Trips

    EVENT CANCELLED. As a result of the limited response to date for this charter, CTHF has regrettably had to cancel this event. Payments made by registrants will be refunded as soon as possible. The CTHF is hopeful of having an event in conjunction with Halton County Radial Railway, one of our Heritage partners, at some future date.

    The HSR has not parked buses for a number of years now. They do rotate rows in the garage to make sure that every bus sees service 1 out of 2 weekdays when the service requirements are reduced in the summer.

    Airdrie Intercity Commuter Express & Local Service

    I was able to get the VIN of Airdrie 3718 today. It is 4RKYL82J1J9776464, build date Feb. 2018. It is interesting that it is a Plattsburgh built unit.

    BHA 2018 Convention - Dayton/Cincinnati

    The scheduled arrival time at the Covington hotel will be 5:15 PM. If needed, I would be available to give you a ride to the airport. By the way, the Dayton day now has over 60 people registered. In addition to the BBC trolley 110, we will also be getting a Skoda. We will ask people to switch vehicles at lunch time so that everybody has a chance to ride the BBC.

    CTHF 2018 Fan Trips

    The Saskatoon Classic fan trip is now only a few weeks away. There is still plenty of room left so registrations will be accepted even up to the day of the event. Saskatoon Transit has informed the CTHF that the charter bus should be # 449 which is in the midst of getting an engine swap. It should be ready for our event but an ex-Calgary bus will be used if there are any last minute mechanical difficulties.
