    Hey any other bus operators here ?

    Although not an operator, I am retired from 18 years at Information and 4 years of Lost & Found / Fare Media Sales at ETS (Edmonton). I have always had a fascination for schedules, running boards / sheets / keys / paddles etc. Same thing just a plethora of different names depending on the agency. Basically they are all the same (as in containing the same information) just different formats. Indeed very interesting. Much of this is going to be history with the ongoing implementation of technology - although back up hard copies will always be needed.

    General FY Moments

    FY, raining today... and a decent rain ... and all day, not this 30 minute stuff and then the sun comes out. A real bonafide rainy day.

    You know you're a transitfan when...

    I understand. Trolleys are the best. If we had trolleys here I would be on them even for 1 stop also.

    General FML moments

    Necessity is the mother of invention, so I rigged up some wheels for my bag and with some ingenuity (and a shoelace) I managed to fasten it to the frame. It will do for now, but it's not gonna roll in knee deep snow. And it is a far cry from the convenience of a rented locker.
