  1. 2018 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    9223 to Richmond (didn't see that one coming)
  2. 2017 Alexander Dennis Enviro 500 trial

    I have received word that decker training for Surrey drivers booked on line 301 starts some time within the next couple of weeks. A good friend of mine who has block 23/301 for the late night long haul goes in for her training on the 16th.
  3. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    There's a couple I know of that need shelters... Stop 55198 NB Scott Road/84 Ave (transfers from line 301 EB to lines 666* & 329 NB), there isn't enough space though. Stop 55321 WB Hwy. 10/180 Street (KPU Cloverdale students keep ending up soaked in the rain) *line 319
  4. Who have you met?

    When was this? I rode his bus a number of times.
  5. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    That one's been out of service for a while. Most likely a mechanic taking it out on a test drive.
  6. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Some new ops (to Surrey anyway) were found on 7472 doing line training at around 12:40. They appeared to be following along line 301 at the time as the bus turned from Scott Road NB onto 84 Ave WB.

    From what I'm seeing, the one decker that @Phillip found in RTC is the same Low Height E500 that was here back in May.

    That's the same decker that was here a few months back on checking the plate against my pic from May. Nice catch.

    Some pull-in stops are too short to take artics on the line (and unfortunately most stops I live near are pull-ins that I mentioned). 103A would instead be kept due to this connection that I hadn't thought about previously.
  10. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Line 319 proposals: (or as I call it, line 666 to H*** due to frequent & often severe overcrowding) Line 319 should no longer serve stops between 96 Avenue & Scott Road Station (103A is an exception to allow connection with line 640), said stops would continue to be served by line 312 (& line 640 north of 103A). This would take some pressure off the line as people looking to go south of 96 Avenue would get priority while those getting off at local stops no longer served by line 319 would board lines 312 or 640, which are nowhere near as busy depending on the time of day. In addition, line 319 should also get a late night frequency to every 15 minutes 7 days a week to relieve pressure due to queues at Scott Road Station often backing up through the main entrance & part way down the other side of the loop. Whenever queues get this bad at around 23:00, around 20 or so people often get stranded for 30 min due to the bus being full to the line, which contributes to the queue backing up through the entrance again for the next departure, causing a domino effect of more stranded passengers & long queues.
  11. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    The server's internal clock got stuck on 1/1/1970!
  12. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    found 1007 going SB on Wesbrook Mall at 15:00, unknown line
  13. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    https://tcomm.bustrainferry.com/mobile/bus/80712 Does an artic normally appear on line 255?
  14. West Vancouver Blue Bus

    Hybrids for West Van? This will be interesting. Let's hope they're BAE HDS200 & not Allison H40EP. Only way to find out is to wait & see what happens.
  15. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Line 407 frequency between Brighouse & Knight/Marine terminus on midday weekdays & all times during weekends is pretty bad (only once an hour), which partly explains some of the full buses on line 430 during those times.
