  2. Heading all the way to Somerset?
  3. Spotted a white Vicinity heading south on Sarcee just south of the Trans Canada at 10:40 this morning.
  4. CTrain shuttles this weekend between 39th Avenue and Heritage stations.
  5. More likely service expansion...
  6. #4411, On-It's fantastic looking new D4505, captured this afternoon during some roadside coach-spotting with member 'BCT-3122-D800-10240'. IMG_4358 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr IMG_4375 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  7. That was a fun route! Though most of the ridership (that I recall) was along 10th Street and Northmount Drive which are both served by major routes, so it's no surprise to me that it was discontinued.
  8. The "pre-XD40 days" as I like to call them...
  9. Alignment option 4 is being formally recommended for the Green Line. http://www.calgarycitynews.com/2017/06/recommendation-for-green-line-lrt-in.html
  10. Throwback Thursday! (+1 for last week) #1148 contrasting nicely with a Nova at 5th and 9th in October of 2013. IMG_4349 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr #1154 rolling down 5th Avenue in November of 2013. IMG_4559 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  11. Flair Airlines has purchased NewLeaf. http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/newleaf-flair-airlines-air-canada-westjet-1.4149722
  12. Trains from south and NE only running to City Hall at the moment due to an incident on the avenue. Shuttle buses in place. Service restored in both directions as of 12:23.
  13. In theory, every BRT route serves the same general purpose as the LRT lines, which is providing a backbone service. However, you can only have so much transit service in this city. When it comes down to it, not many Calgarians choose transit (compared to other urban centres in Canada) due to the design of the city in general. They could make the BRT as frequent as they want, but the extra buses will end up being quite empty, due to various factors including the overall design of the SE quadrant as well as the proximity of the highly efficient South LRT line. While it is true that providing better service can attract more riders and thus raise ridership, it can very often be difficult to strike that balance.
  14. Like what for example?
