    SMRT Notice: With new Cannabis laws taking effect tomorrow, we have set rules in place for the safety of all passenges using SMRT. Effective October 17, 2018: - Smoking cannabis in stations, station platforms, on board buses, streetcars, and trains is prohibited, just as regular smoking is. It is subject to the same rules as smoking cigarettes. - Offering cannabis to a minor (under the age of 18) is prohibited by law, and will be subject to criminal conviction. - It is NOT illegal to possess cannabis, as long as it is 30 grams or less. Transit officers will have the right to ask about any cannabis on persons, BUT can only remove an individual from a transit building or vehicle if they are smoking, distributing to minors, or hold more than 30 grams. Edible cannabis is still ILLEGAL and is subject to legal action. - Smoking at bus stops is allowed, but please be mindful of those around you. - Operators are NOT allowed to operate any vehicle or perform their duties under cannabis influence. If you think an employee is under influence, please report to the nearest transit officer or police. Please be mindful of others when on transit. Thank you.

    A bunch of RFPs for various private companies in the Sunnyshore area located below. Apply within: Sunnyshore Bus Lines (SBL) 10 CNG 40' buses. Efficient and quiet to replace our Orion V buses. [Any spec welcome] Expires end of October 2018 Sunnyshore Airport Authority (SAA) 20 Diesel 60' buses. Efficient and reliable to run as Terminal Transfer Shuttles. [Luminator Spectrum required] Expires end of October 2018 10 Diesel/Hybrid 40' buses. Efficient and reliable to run as Gate Shuttles. [Luminator Spectrum required] Expires end of October 2018 Kennedy & Gregory Transportation System (KGTS) 20 Diesel 40' buses. Reliable buses to replace existing New Flyer D40 buses. [ZF Ecolife required] Expires November 10, 2018 ------------------------------------------------------- SMRT Notice Due to snowfall in southern Alberta, all subway and bus services were running quite late. Thanks to all our crew working to get everything back in service and smoothing things out during delays on October 2. Delays for buses are still expected as the snow remains on the ground. Subway service is back to normal with no issues. All our buses were equipped with Winter Tires in anticipation, but even those couldn't stop the slippery roads. We are glad to report that there were no accidents up until now. Speaking of which, we found that our small fleet of Tri-Star TS40 Hybrids had the most struggle in this weather, as well as our artic fleet. Double deckers didn't struggle too badly, but there was one report of a Enviro400 getting stuck. The CNG fleet proved well in the sudden winter storm, and we look forward to continue ordering more CNG buses in the future. The TS40 Hybrids are experiencing major issues, mainly starting up and electrical shorts found on one of the buses. We have contacted Tri-Star in order to deal with the issue. As a reminder the TS40 Hybrids arrived in 2015 and had no issues with winter driving for the 3 years.

    2016 Grande West Vicinitys

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn't intend on doubting what has been already said, I just wasn't 100% sure on what happen to the Vicinities.

    Strange how the Vicinities lasted for at best 2 years and the Eldorados lasted much longer than them...
