    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    18354 started service this morning on a 7 & 18375 on a 33
  3. Prime example WB West 49th Ave at Cambie Street in front of Langara 49th Ave. Station. That bus stop is way to close to the intersection which is the length of 2 vehicles. That bus stop should be pushed back 4-5 car lengths allowing for a safer distance from the intersection. I myself have been in the through lane about to make a right turn to go north on Cambie when suddenly the WB 49 UBC is puling out of the bus stop resulting a near miss. I've seen it with other vehicles as well. As a bus rider on occasion to walk a little further back would not kill me. There are other bus stops as well that are nearside to intersections which create a hazard for turning vehicles. I don't know who it is that plans these stops out, but obviously they are not using their brains.

    TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    Burrard Bridge is unable to support trolley's due to the weight of the support poles even after the seismic upgrade. That is why the back when the 22 went to McKenzie & West 41st then later to Dunbar Loop it never had trolleys.
  8. My source advises me that if any of the 5 outfitted with luggage racks end up being retired due to a serious mechanical issue, the racks will be reinstalled in another coach. As for 8063 being assigned on the 49 I'm told it is being investigated.

  11. A reliable source high up at Translink head office has informed me that 8060 8063 8064 8065 8066 will no longer be used on the 49 Metrotown/UBC. Their customer relations received numerous complaints of luggage racks buses being assigned on the 49 as well as drivers were complaining. Apparently RTC operations was unaware of this situation. From what this source tells me RTC has some new people doing bus assignments & they were unaware they were assigning luggage racks buses on 1 of the busiest crosstown routes. This person goes on to tell me effective mid January is when this was issue resolved. These 5 coaches are to be strictly assigned to 620 with the exception of morning trips interlined with the 354, 403 & 480. Since Fridays, weekends, stat holidays & overloads when more then 5 buses are required to fill the route, standard 60 foot coaches will be assigned along with the 5 luggage rack equipped coaches.
