  1. The Orange actually has an all day artic key this signup.
  2. How much interest would there be for a 7600 fan trip? Myself and a few others spent most of tonight discussing chartering one of these on a weekend for everyone on here before they're gone. I don't want it to be too short notice, but my concern is how numbered their days are which could pose a challenge for this. I'd hope for a rough date of sometime in March for it. It will certainly take precedence over any restaurant fan meetup. Anyone with any comments/questions is welcome to PM me!
  3. To an extent yes. At the old stops you could wait inside the Bissett building for southbound buses and Bella Concert Hall for northbound buses. The heated shelters at the new stations are fine but the ones at the MRU station aren't big enough for the crowds that can accumulate there.
  4. Is there any particular reason why some certain 2001/2002 units (Balios buses) seem to not be able to display "MAX" while others can? I can see this being a major source of confusion for passengers since the MAX routes weren't publicly advertised by their 30x route numbers. For the same reason, I also think there should be some active control in place to either avoid running the Vultron-equipped 7600s on the MAX routes, or use something like paper cards to clearly convey the MAX designation and route color on buses that can't display MAX on the destination sign.
  5. The solution to that is to stagger the bus stops for certain routes which they already do to an extent in downtown. They might want to look into spacing the stops even further apart if this is becoming an issue.
  6. Couple shots of #8397 on the MAX Yellow’s SF key tonight. Kinda wish the letters “MY” on the back were dark (negative space)... They’re just as hard to see against the yellow as they are to photograph.
  7. Reposting this 1972 shot of #580 on Route 10 Capital Hill/Manchester as it was known back then, from a Facebook group. #598 can be seen in the background.

  12. Some notes from taking the first inbound run this morning from Woodpark terminus to Bow Valley Square. Travel time was 41 minutes in what was pretty much zero traffic. -Fair amount of riders accumulated between the Woodpark terminus and Heritage Park, which was pleasing to see especially for the first run -CAD stop announcements don’t seem to be working yet -Clocks on the station displays are 2 hours fast -Lengthy layover at the station in front of Shoppers on Southland -Little bit of a wait at the Heritage Park traffic signal. Could become a potential issue -Very long wait to turn left onto 14th at 75 Ave -Bus was showing 5 minutes late on the tracker by the time we reached Glenmore/Crowchild It’s got a few kinks but overall, nice route!
  13. MAX Yellow is alive! #6033 is the first bus out of Woodbine this morning as the 0535 trip.
  14. For what it’s worth, I had a ticket inspection (albeit what seemed to be an incomplete one which was a first for me) on a southbound train in PM rush hour just the other week.
