  9. 104 more buses are coming to BC Transit. Found here: https://bctransit.com/*/news/article?nid=1403647009639
  10. Most likely no because the tunnel is being replace by 2022. Also CMBC would need to upgrade or build a transit centre to fit the double decker buses which will take a few years.
  11. Is Abbotsford current garage able to take CNG buses right away until a new garage gets built?

  14. I am leading to at least three vessels which will be 2 more Salish Class and another I - Class, being built for replacement vessels of Powell River Class and another major reshuffle of the fleet. With two more being built Salish Class and one more I - Class: Mayne Queen has direct replacement vessel, a Salish Class vessel. Skeena Queen moves to replace the Quinsam on her current route. Quinsam takes over the Powell River Queen on route. Bowen Queen replacement Salish Class vessel takes over for the Skeena Queen. Quinitsa will be retired with a Queen of Capilano taking over the Crofton - Vesuvius Bay. The Queen of Capilano route will be taken over by the Powell River Queen replacement I - Class vessel. If BC Ferries decides to replace the Powell River Class with three more Salish Class vessel: Mayne Queen has direct replacement vessel, a Salish Class vessel. Skeena Queen moves to replace the Quinsam. Quisam takes over the Powell River Queen route. Powell River Queen replacements vessel takes over for the Skeena Queen route. Bowen Queen replacement vessel take over for the Island Sky. Island Sky takes over for Queen of Capilano. Queen of Capilano takes over the Quinitsa. Quinitsa will also be send into retirement. I am shock that BC Ferries hasn't started talking about another major vessel replacement program to replace the Queen of Cowichan, and Queen of Coquatlam which could be retire in 2019. I hope that problem also includes the replacement vessels for the Queen of New Westminster, Queen of Alberni, Queen of Surrey and Queen of Oak Bay which could be retire in 2021. This part of plan that I have seen on West Coast Ferry Forum. Personally, I think all these vessel will be replace with more Coastal Class vessel. The only problem they are going to need to fix for six more Coastal Class vessel in the future is to put double layer loading ramps and over head passenger walk ways at both berths at Langdale terminal.
  15. STC is getting CNG by 2019.
