    The one from Barrie is likely 68506; on the GovDeals site, the username pieces visible are the same as what was listed for 69007 and 69107, while the winning bidders for the other 3 68-series Barrie buses are completely different.

    As an update to that post, all 12 new LFSes are in service, numbered 38888-38899.

    I'm assuming it's a REST API of some sort?

    Any word on what they'll be renumbered to?

    Looks like Riverview has a new bus now, 831. Might mean there's a few more buses for Moncton coming soon as well

    Saint John has started using new LFSes in regular service; I've spotted 38888 and 38892 while I was in town over the weekend, and based on the numbering system, there would all have 38 seats.

    Absolutely; it might clean up some of the logjam that happens downtown as well.

    Oh yeah, very true; I'm a bit surprised they shifted the Green Line back there from Vaughn Harvey, but I suppose there is more potential customers in this area. I could honestly see that intersection getting some sort of transit priority measures to keep the Green Line on time.

    Might also explain why the Green Line has an extra 5 minutes scheduled going towards Plaza Blvd compared to the return trip downtown

    Even in the morning, traffic isn't backed up THAT bad; I believe the 52 can still make it to 1111 Main in 15 minutes. Although, that might be as a result of it not having to loop around to face the proper direction on Main, or get into the Champlain Place parking lot

    Teleportation? It’s amazing how backed up it gets going towards Dieppe but how fine it is the other way

    @Seashore_518203 awesome!

    That reminds me of waiting for the Express in front of the Blue Cross Centre for my first ever time on the bus in Moncton; there was a supervisor across the road who yelled for me to run up to the corner of Main and Botsford to grab the Express as it was deadheading to Champlain to avoid traffic. There was another time, similar circumstance but when the LFX demo was in use, the driver waved me over so he could deadhead around. Gee, I wonder why the 52 is scheduled for a half hour from 1111 Main to Champlain in the afternoon after the post-lockout changes got stabilized

    Absolutely; I remember being on the bus in the afternoons and hearing dispatch telling the Express heading down Mountain Road towards Highfield to slow down a bit to let the 1 catch up. I also remember waiting for a bus on Main and seeing 4 buses, one behind the other, go by. For your point on 71, the best way to reroute that would be to use Wheeler Blvd to go back to Plaza, but that might not be the best idea in terms of being able to pick up customers; if that happens, I could see it being a route that flips midday, taking Wheeler out in the morning and back in the afternoon. My predictions for what changes come up in the next schedule change: 50 becomes every 15 minutes all day, maybe 20 minutes during rush hour (the 40 might've just been to keep it in sync with the other 30-minute routes) 51 becomes a proper 15 minute run on Sundays (now, there's 2 runs on a 45 minute loop, so there's a weird half-hour gap between a couple runs, and then 15 minutes for the next) 60 goes 20 minutes during peak hours 61B and 64B better fall into the half-way mark during rush hours; they're both offset a bit more one way as opposed to being perfectly in the middle 64B might go all day (not evening) The Dieppe buses go to every 40 minutes during peak hours; 95 definitely needs this, especially in the afternoons Either 94 or 95 goes to every 20 minutes with the 4th Dieppe bus being used for these runs Obviously those are guesses, but I imagine there won't be anything more drastic than that. This adds 1 bus all day, 1 during the day, and 2 during rush hour

    I get the feeling that the "every 40 minutes" during rush hour might turn into every 20 for some routes (likely the 60, at a minimum) with the 61B and 64B better staggered during those times. And who knows, Dieppe might add a 4th route or something with their 4th bus. But, still a few weeks away from those changes even being publicized
