  1. Translink Refurbishments

    Since this topic has been so quiet I there still some refurbishments going on? I just checked all the Orion 5's that have not been refurbished & all of them are still in active service. I did come across 9259 which has not seen service since July 4th would that be the only bus in the entire system for refurbishment?

  3. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Hope they decide on making longer platforms! Translink admitted this week that the Canada Line Station platforms are to short & obviously they didn't plan ahead for the future. https://globalnews.ca/news/3793260/larger-stations-or-more-trains-canada-line-faces-tough-choice-as-demand-increases/
  4. I know all about Steveston Hwy as I work behind the Ironwood Shopping complex & deal with Steveston Hwy mess. Most of the time if there is a back up in the traffic I'll cut though the Save on Foods parking lot & enter Steveston Hwy by MacDonald's as that will help shave off time. The problem is there are too many lights between 5 Road & the 99 Interchange. That interchange was built the wrong way & there should've been cloverleaf's instead which would get the traffic flowing better. Also it doesn't help either with the bus activated light at Hwy 99 as after the light changes for the bus there is a delay in the light changing green for the Steveston onramp to Hwy 99 SB. What should be done is to eliminate that traffic light & instead install amber flashing lights like how there is on the 99 corridor between Shell & Westminster. Eliminating all these traffic lights would help the traffic flow a lot better.

    2124 Involved in a minor mva at Kingsway & Knight St right now
  7. Vancouver Special Sightings

    Well the significance is that the 020 is complete diesel today. Also I have also seen where others have posted where a trolley route is being dieselized for the day. Also the fact that Brando quotes this could be the first cummings on the 020?

    020's are 100% diesel today with R7403 on there

    Thanks Brando...I'll suppose we'll see more D40LF's that are in storage possibly be reactivated?

    So by the looks of things VTC has a surplus of buses since the 009 has gone back to Trolley? I'm sure if this is the case more D40LF's will probably be transferred out to STC as it seems if STC is in need of coaches?

    Anyone know what has happened to 2547? It has been out of service since May.

    I don't understand why 7436 was brought over to VTC for the 1 day & then was sent back to RTC when they brought 7403-07 over to VTC?
  13. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    What a waste of resources to have someone send it to VTC then back to RTC
  14. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    Most of them have their "R's" & a few still have their "V's".

    I suppose now we won't see any more retirements being put back into service unless there's another boost of service? Is there going to be another boost in service come December?
