  1. Adding the Airbus A220-300 today with Air Canada.
  2. Some were, but many weren't. Though the main reason #1046 was preserved initially was because of its livery. An operator well known to us enthusiasts who is also a member of this board played a major role in making it happen for us back then which it probably wouldn't have otherwise.
  3. Which three stripe bus did you have in mind specifically?
  4. About time! https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/after-much-delay-province-approves-calgarys-green-line-lrt-project Preliminary construction starting in Fall 2021.
  5. Yup. Beautiful bus.
  6. Some white Proterras are inside the Big Rig Collision shop in Calgary today presumably bound for Edmonton.
  7. They mentioned capital expenditures on shelters in an earlier article, and there's already several bus stop-style benches laid out around the center shopping district of Chestermere which they'll probably use for the bus stops around that area. For the rest, they'll likely just place some temporary signs around (if even that) unless this is eventually made permanent.
  8. Minimum bid is about 100 times more than what I'm willing to spend on a 7700 that doesn't even run . Kinda unfortunate, could have been a profitable investment if it did run...
  9. #2071-2048-2021 on the Red Line once again this PM. Should be at Somerset at time of post.
  10. Depends on the items but it’s usually pretty easy. Go on the 311 site and send a service request regarding “Bus/CTrain maintenance” asking nicely for what you need. It may take several weeks or longer for them to get back to you (if they even have the stuff you need available) but once they do they’ll most likely send you to the city surplus store in Manchester to pick the stuff up.
  11. ***CHARTER UPDATE*** Hey everyone. Just checking in for a quick update on the August 28th #1046 fantrip as I'm sure a few of you have been getting anxious lately. Alberta's reopening plan was just announced this morning and with cases declining and vaccine rates rising, we expect most restrictions to be gone by the time the day comes around. As a result, I am pleased to announce that the charter as of right now is 100% a go for the planned date. We have decided to increase the capacity of the charter to fill the entire bus up. As of now, we have 19 spots open, so
  12. I wouldn't count on that at all. The airline hasn't confirmed this and Porter employees haven't heard anything either AFAIK.
  13. Decided to stop by and check out Davies station and the new MWTC this afternoon. Everything looks awesome in person. I like the cool walkway from the bus terminal to the soon-to-be LRT station at Mill Woods too.
