  1. Looking at the CTrain disruptions list again … I just noticed there are also additional shuttles going from the Blue Line temporary terminus stations (Westbrook and Bridgeland) to near Victoria Park/Stampede station for the Flames away game viewing event on Sunday. https://www.calgarytransit.com/content/transit/en/home/service-updates/ctrain-service.html
  2. They are clearly *not* wasting any time!
  3. You know May Long is near when the annual 7th Avenue CTrain closure is announced! https://www.calgarytransit.com/content/transit/en/home/service-updates/ctrain-service.html
  4. 8009 has the new seats as well.
  5. 7996 just went past with red seats visible from outside.
  6. "Calgary Transit won't hit full service again until 2023" https://calgary.citynews.ca/2022/05/05/calgary-transit-ridership/
  7. Just saw 6028 with these as well.
  8. Found these on my phone from last month … I probably meant to post them sooner but totally forgot.
  9. Here it is again … they altered the URL for some reason https://rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/fr-CA/actualites/avis-a-la-clientele/2022/circuit-201-a-saint-lambert/
  10. Here's the official announcement, en français: https://rtl-longueuil.qc.ca/fr-CA/actualites/avis-a-la-clientele/2022/midibus-201-a-saint-lambert/
  11. Spotted yesterday at 6th Ave. and 4th St. S.W! I imagine this is for a TV show being made around here.
  12. A bit of a random question: Is the CTrain line around Sunnyside station the only portion of the LRT system with painted catenary poles? I only recently noticed they’re sky blue, as opposed to bare aluminum.
  13. Will Route 23 keep its current, extensive service span? If so, that’s good news for the deep southeast, especially later on weekends. And now that I think of it, will these route changes restore more of the service span lost to cuts pre-pandemic?
  14. 7739 and 7903 seen just now operating as shuttle buses. (Possibly there are more?)
  15. I think the only articulated bus operating today (it’s on Route 1) passed me while I was out for a walk earlier. Unsurprisingly, the rest of the 60-footers appear to have been benched today, according to Transit 55.
  16. Is it just me … or does that look like some kind of Nova stuck/stalled here?
  17. And here’s another! https://calgary.ctvnews.ca/historical-artifact-calgary-man-buys-old-transit-bus-for-historic-restoration-project-1.5864121
  18. People who speak on behalf of Calgary Transit on social media really need to get with the program. Given all the information shared here by @Gsgeek540 and everything else that has happened related to the pandemic, I'm fairly certain the reason stated below is entirely NOT why Route 37 has better frequency on weekends than on weekdays at present.
  19. According to T55, it changed off 8308 a little more than one hour into the day.
  20. And further to my previous message, there appear to be new departures on 301 southbound from North Pointe at 7:53, 8:11 and 8:31 a.m. listed in the schedule on the Transit website starting Monday, April 25.
  21. Hey look, it's @Nick B in the news! https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/calgary-transit-gm-fishbowl-bus-restoration-1.6420469
  22. I don't know when this was added to Calgary Transit's "Service Updates" page … but there is a slight bump to morning service on Route 301 southbound:
  23. One possible benefit of the plastic seats: it will be more obvious when they are wet and people might not want to sit down. I speak from experience!
