  1. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Detroit_Transportation_Corporation_Cobo_Center_Station should be renamed to Detroit Transportation Corporation Convention Center Station.
  2. 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/
  3. 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 )
  4. 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 )
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. As of recently, SMART 23332 is wrapped for Macy's Backstage.
  8. Whenever possible, I sit somewhere close to the rear door, or sometimes the front door.
  9. 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.

  11. 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

  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
