    2019 Transit Fanning goals

    So far, I've booked on British Airways and Finnair between Toronto and Hong Kong, stopping at London and Helsinki on the way. The trip will take place May to August. Have not booked any flights to New Zealand yet. A few more goals I haven't mentioned yet, some of which are not transit related: Count Me In summit, May 17-20 (https://www.countmeinsummit.com/) Given the ORR's recent conditional approval of the Overground Class 710, they will likely enter service next month, so I'll definitely be filming them (https://twitter.com/railandroad/status/1116693293931421698) Singapore Airlines Boeing 787-10. Between Hong Kong and Auckland I will book on SQ with a short stay in Singapore. New Zealand: Will likely book on at least one trip with Haka Tours, one of which will explore all ski resorts in the South Island between Christchurch and Queenstown. U-Fly Wanaka October onwards: British Airways Airbus A350-1000 December: TfL Rail will begin Class 345 operation between Paddington to Reading, before the main tunnels open between Paddington and Stratford/Abbey Wood. Here were my goals mentioned previously:

    Cathay will finally be starting A350-1000 service to YYZ starting this October! This is really awesome!

    2018 60' Articulated Bus Order

    I heard there's a NFI service center in Renton WA, so most likely it will be fixed there.

    Casual news/blog sites like Daily Hive, Urbanized Vancouver, blogTO, Narcity, and MTL Blog needs to be read with caution (or better off, avoid them entirely). They don't take journalism seriously and don't care about editing out incorrect facts.

    The BC Transit units are all diesel. They have a different steering system that is not affected by this issue.

    And probably JetSet parking as well.

    2019 60' Articulated Bus Procurement

    19004 on delivery from New Flyer Minnesota traveling to Vancouver was struck by a car in an apparent rear-end collision, 1 fatality in the car. Heavy damage to the front of the bus. This occurred on westbound I-90. No word on where the bus will be towed to be fixed.
  9. It seems like the power steering glitch has popped up among the Nova BAE hybrids in Quebec, forcing many transit agencies in Quebec to ground them this morning. This was the same glitch that the TTC experienced. It's going to be a mess especially for the STM and many others considering the hybrid buses form a significant part of their fleets, and I wonder if this issue would recur in the TTC or not.

    2018 Standard 40' Bus Procurement

    With the recent grounding of the TTC Nova BAE hybrids due to an electric steering issue, and now that this same issue has popped up in Quebec with the same bus type, do you think this will affect TransLink's Nova BAE hybrids in any way?

  11. Likely to be the same reason for the recent grounding of the TTC Nova hybrids.
