    Could you elaborate more on this? Does this mean that buses would simply be stored at the Greyhound facility while maintained elsewhere, as the facility doubles as a bus terminal?

    Blast from the past - Calgary and Area Photos

    Throwback Thursday! A long-gone sight in our system (and rare even back then), this is my only decent photo of an SD160/U2-DC mixed consist in revenue service, taken in April of 2013. #2071 and #2221 at 3rd Street SW by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    Throwback Thursday! Surely I can't be the only one who agrees that the 2200's looked better in this livery, even after the AC retrofit. #2219 at Kerby on Canada Day 2013. #2219 at Downtown West/Kerby by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr

    Based on the image, looks like that hole was intentionally cut for whatever reason.

    #7966 on hook at Somerset. I’d safely bet it’s not the only one today with the intense heat.

    When your journey involves two or more community shuttle routes, travel time can easily add up to 30+ minutes for even short distances.

    2016 Edmonton and Area spotting and news

    Here is a crappy photo of #7074, one of the newest if not the newest XD40 delivered so far, at Paterson taken yesterday. IMG_4860 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr And #7072, also at Paterson. IMG_4855 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr Also took a ride on one of these on the 100 yesterday. Love the air conditioning. Seats aren't the most comfortable but I'll take the hard plastic over cloth on a hot day.
