  3. Collisions and Incidents thread

    9644 Dead NB Mid Span Lions Gate Bridge. Huge traffic delays both ways as only 1 lane getting through mid span each direction
  4. Most of the trips I see throughout the day on the 430 have standees. Service frequency also needs to be improved
  5. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    What fleet number is it showing up on Tcomm?
  6. Vancouver general sightings and notes

    You wonder why Translink is desperate for cash when they waste fuel like this on Trolley route.
  7. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Looks like Dennis' site Tcomm is down again? It's been down since last night I've noticed
  8. Vancouver: T-Comm "E-Sightings"

    Sorry I meant 145. It had passengers onboard as I passed it & it was picking up passengers. All I can say is a total mystery? I wasn't able to stick around or follow it. I missed the light at Knight & Kingsway & watched it pull into the stop.

  10. 2015 60' Articulated Bus Order (Diesel or Diesel/Electric Hyrbid)

  11. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    If this technology proves to be a success this could spell the end of trolley bus service here. It was mentioned by Kevin Desmond that this technology would be cheaper to run then the current Trolley fleet as there is no trolley overhead wire maintenance to contend with. Be careful what you wish for with this technology!
  12. 2015 Community Shuttle Order

    Yes sorry my mistake it is indeed 17518 & not 16. Sorry for the confusion
  13. New Flyer D60LF Retirement / Storage watch

    I thought Translink was suppose to improve services by adding more buses? It looks as if instead they are retiring for each new coach that makes it debut in service?
