  1. Alec Holowka, developer of Night in the Woods, has committed suicide after being accused of sexual assault. https://www.pcgamer.com/night-in-the-woods-developer-alec-holowka-has-died/
  2. One of SMART's brand new Gillig BRTs awaits departure from it's Wyandotte layover on a northbound 140. (already uploaded to the wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3802-a.jpg )
  3. One of the CTA's 2016 Nova Bus LFS buses on Grand Avenue at Navy Pier. (already uploaded to the wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Chicago_Transit_Authority_8202-a.jpg )
  4. The theory about electric buses I had on the DDOT thread is true! https://detroitmi.gov/news/ddot-and-smart-awarded-26-million-fta-low-no-grant-funding-electric-buses?fbclid=IwAR0WkQLOh0mDZO35mUVfmNYNJh1H6lP-yBv5X4CxWlBv9s8eqDmdYpMnW8k
  5. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2019/07/29/federal-emissions-grant-detroit/39819881/?fbclid=IwAR0bw0dS-4DuqBGyrh-llwb_J4ZVMjFo7XRDHGnUwJndTpMLw4BMg9w0x6w This explains why RPTC Bay 6 has been closed - it's most likely to install a charging station, as I read elsewhere that the 29 Linwood is to be run with electric buses in the future.
  6. Whenever possible, I sit somewhere close to the rear door, or sometimes the front door.
  7. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3801-3845 should be renamed to Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 3801-3840.
  8. DDOT and SMART will be unveiling a new unified fare payment system, called Dart. Dart will be introduced on May 1 and offers the ability to take unlimited rides on both systems in four-hour and 24-hour increments. Weekly and monthly passes will also be made available, and a phone app is to be released soon. The article also mentions that a Dart expansion to include the People Mover and Q-Line is in the works. If it was also expanded to include the Ann Arbor Area Transit Authority and Transit Windsor, many more potential opportunities could pop up. https://detroitmi.gov/news/smart-ddot-announce-unified-payment-system-dart-new-way-pay-public-transit?fbclid=IwAR0ikKO20tyMd2daPr-DChKvq_7GtxEZ2igjseE-GuSlKgPATr5bls8NjAw

  10. Following multiple recent Gillig BRT deliveries, a few 2003 Gillig Low Floor buses remain at SMART as their oldest buses. Pictured is unit 23357, one of the remaining units in active service as of April 2019.
  11. Delete https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3832-a.png I had forgotten it was a .png file and the photographer provided a .jpg version that I also uploaded with his permission.
  12. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Alamo_Rent-A-Car_National_Car_Rental_(DTW)_50-a.jpg should be renamed to File:Alamo Rent-A-Car National Car Rental (DTW) 55-a.jpg.
  13. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_3801-3835 should be renamed to Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 3801-3845.
  14. Here's one more from December 22, 2018:
  15. Last photo of 2018: First photo of 2019:
  16. Yesterday, the longest-serving representative in US history has died at age 92. Former Michigan Rep. John Dingell dies at age 92
  17. This makes the most sense, as this very same artic just demoed with CATA in Michigan last month and Windsor is almost a straight shot down I-96 from Lansing.
  18. Two additional changes: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_routes_710_730_740_combined_map_(09-2017)-a.jpg should be renamed to File:Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation routes 710 730 740 combined map (06-2018)-a.jpg (reason: I just found out that route 730's service change was actually in June 2018.) https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Detroit_Department_of_Transportation_route_8_'Crosstown' should be renamed to Detroit Department of Transportation route 8 'Warren' (reason: Warren is the actual route name.)
  19. Months later and I am still waiting for all of the aforementioned pages to be renamed. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Suburban_Mobility_Authority_for_Regional_Transportation_6001-6040 should be renamed to Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation 6001-6039
  20. Is there a link to whatever server this tool is in use on so I can see this in action for myself?
  21. What's preventing you from simply getting the entire show on DVD?
  22. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/File:Detroit_Department_of_Transportation_1800-a.jpg The Detroit Department of Transportation recently unveiled a new livery, a new logo and a new route numbering system for their highest-ridership routes. Pictured is 1800, a 2018 New Flyer XD40, which is one of many New Flyer Xclesior buses that DDOT has applied the new livery to, seen operating route 52 Chene, one of thirteen routes that were renumbered.
  23. Legendary comic book creator and writer Stan Lee has passed away at age 95. https://comicbook.com/comics/2018/11/12/stan-lee-obituary-dead-marvel/
  24. Welp, since then, I've dropped it twice. One of these times was back in December 2017 while checking out Christmas lights in downtown Detroit.
