  1. CTrain Station Renovations

  2. I'm using Google Chrome and that doesn't appear for me in either this thread or the refurb thread.
  3. None that I can find...
  4. Out of ordinary Calgary Transit bus spottings

    The "generally off-peak" SG buses aren't just limited to the XD40's and 7800's. I've seen many SG Novas, 2005's, sometimes even 2001/2002's on weekends. The 7600 does surprise me as the last time I recall seeing one on a weekend was around 2013/2014, on a Sunday at that.
  5. It definitely makes it easier to find, but I noticed we still need to manually find it by scrolling. Is there a way to add a link to either the top or bottom of each topic page to 'jump' to the featured post?
  6. Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

    Throwback Thursday! An interior we all remember and love. #1156's interior taken during my last ever ride on a Calgary Transit GM New Look in December of 2013. IMG_4762 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  7. Calgary Transit - Two Tone Blue Fishbowls

    Negative. All withdrawn from service nearly 4 years ago.
  8. General CTrain Discussion

    You may have just had bad luck with the S200's. With between 20 and 30 cars now in service, they're quite easy to find now, particularly in downtown since they are distributed among the Red and Blue lines now. They also tend to run back to back. As for the U2's, it is not uncommon to find them anywhere in rush hour, Red or Blue line. In fact the Blue Line tends to use U2's on weekends as discussed in this thread some time ago.

    #6074-6093 as well as the last 4 D60LFR's have bike racks...

    CTrain shuttles this weekend between Fish Creek and Southland stations.
  11. Calgary Transit - Photos of vehicles no longer in the fleet

    Throwback Thursday! #902 at Spring Gardens a few days before it was featured in the media event for the XD40s' entry into service in February of 2014. An event that, in hindsight, I should have skipped school for . IMG_5356 by TheNicholasBlonski, on Flickr
  12. CTrain Station Renovations

    Very curious to see what will be done to 39 Avenue!
  13. Calgary Transit CTrain Service Disruptions

    CTrains only running to 39 Ave from Somerset this morning. Shuttle buses in effect from Chinook to downtown. Information obtained from the radio.
