  1. Heh, didn't think about the demos... thought he was referring to the production units in general, but alas In that case I would not be surprised if the internal numbers end up being 6014 and 6015 for this pair!
  2. 6000's maybe? I suppose they could start at 6014, or just skip to 6100 or something.
  3. My guess is 4900's as the order should only be for around 23 buses (replacement of older units as well as expansion for the new Heritage Valley Park N' Ride)
  4. http://www.barp.ca/bus/special/cairns/cairnsbus.html A bit of a running joke... yes, it is possible to catch a TransLink bus to Edmonton in some corner of the world
  5. No it was pretty much an all or nothing deal
  6. Thanks! I added some bus photos and I will have a section for Sydney up next. It is definitely worth checking out; everyone was pretty friendly (no awkward questions about photos) and it always helps when it is an English-speaking country! Keep an eye out for flight deals. A round trip flight from Edmonton to Melbourne was less than $800 PP, but my wife and I had to buy the tickets around 10 months in advance.
  7. My apologies if I missed it, but seeing as there doesn't appear to be a general Australia thread around here... Some Melbourne trams: http://www.barp.ca/bus/special/ptv/ptv.html More to follow as I work though several weeks worth of photos. Enjoy!
  8. It is a mobile farmers' market business. It travels to various locations (parks, seniors' centres, etc.) throughout the city on weekends and even made it into a city parade last year https://www.google.com/amp/s/globalnews.ca/news/4118823/edmonton-farmers-market-bus-fruit-vegetables-cd-fresh-express/amp/
  9. Greetings from Edmonton. On my short trip last week, I encountered R7405 on driver training... it is marked as retired on the wiki but I suppose it has now been repurposed?
  10. In service this afternoon. 8024 & 8025 would be brand new this year... not sure if there are any more yet!
  11. Best theory I've seen is this one a few posts up
  12. Are you 100% sure about that fleet number? As an Edmonton local, I will say 910 is impossible as that one was retired from ETS in the white-blue-yellow livery
  13. Fair point, but it sounds like your sample size is 1 person at this point... I'm sure if the system wasn't a success then we would at least be hearing about it in the media etc.! The problem is a classic scenario: build it and hope for ridership or wait until the demand merits the service. Have you looked into what their ridership is? It is easy to say that they need better service but perhaps it is meeting the needs of the community just fine in its current state.
  14. Bump. Northern Express appears to be adding to their fleet, presumably to cover some of the new routes added as a result of Greyhound bailing on Western Canada. #PR009 is ex Strathcona County #1007.
