  1. ETS Grande West Vicinity Buses

    2002 is the only one tracking this afternoon, but there are definitely others around... went after 2002, also encountered 2005 on route 126 so perhaps they are just having SmartBus issues?
  2. ETS Grande West Vicinity Buses

    Dang, nice catch! A part of me was bitterly hoping they would start at #100 and use that series
  3. St. Albert Sightings

    You are welcome to make a special trip out here to confirm otherwise if our word isn't good enough.
  4. St. Albert Sightings

    As far as we know, they are all still active. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/St._Albert_Transit_853-857 Only update to that would be 855 is the only one left with a rollsign.
  5. Confirmed #707 is ex-SCT #1010:
  6. Winnipeg Transit and area

    Thank-you; that info on 992 is more like what we need Where is 993 if it is definitely gone?
  7. Winnipeg Transit and area

    I dare you to use that as an academic source for any sort of research or historical documentation. Seriously. I don't mean to be grumpy but can we please move past the hearsay and start posting useful information again?
  8. Celebrity Death Thread

    In the spirit of his 007... When it comes to Bond, I was always left wanting Moore!
  9. Saskatoon Updates

    I would, if only it were a little closer to home... Definitely for the kids activities
  10. 2016 Edmonton and Area spotting and news

    I think Martin's previous post addresses your question; I suggest reading it again I am going to go with his response as I have a couple of concerns with your speculation. Namely, why on earth would ETS start numbering at 6906 for their units (this leaves no room for Spruce Grove expansion, and seems random at best) and why would New Flyer be delivering them in reverse order? Then there is the issue that we still don't even know who the ETS tender was awarded to, never mind having a set production date... in other words, definitely not regluar ETS units.

    One of the three units for Beaumont service? The numbering makes sense (regional, leaving space for Spruce Grove), and they might have ended up in the ETS livery purely because Beaumont, unlike Spruce Grove, never really specified a new livery...

    May as well join the fun. Just don't look at the date at the bottom
  13. ISO: old Edmonton Transit route maps

    Added 1982 and 1996. All sorts of interesting historical goodies... I believe the September 1996 map was the last of the old system? Unless someone can confirm that they bothered printing an April 1997 map when the system was due to change so soon anyway.

    Updated the above link. I will say thanks as well, as scanning some of this stuff has been on my list of things to do for a very long time and you provided me with some motivation to do so! There should now be an April 1994 ride guide in there. I am still digging, but I'm pretty sure I've got 1982, 85, 86, 88, 92, 93, 96, 97, and most years from 1998 to today. I also added a few different styles of route brochure: 1988, 1993, and 1997.

    First up, September 1987. I am still working on the scanning process, but this appears to have transferred OK with minimal cuts. http://barp.ca/bus/alberta/ets_media/ Enjoy. More to follow!
