  1. Oh yeah, I can see the plug doors here, never knew that was an option on the LFS:
  2. Bernard Haitink, Dutch conductor and music director, has died.
  3. I believe all-electric bus purchases begin in 2025. That said, NFI is still in the process of making the XE60 more mature for better range and battery life (which hopefully by then, NFI would also offer to replace the current trolleys with Xcelsior trolleys with A/C).
  4. Really? I've seen some opening day photos and don't recall seeing any of these gates on the platforms.
  5. GO Transit completely lacks monthly passes on its whole network and that's why it's so expensive to commute on it.
  6. While the Kelana Jaya Line in Kuala Lumpur does have four-car Mark II sets (as I saw when I went there), they also had a pilot project to refurbish two-car sets into four cars by removing the cab and installing the corridor connection. I believe that was abandoned on the grounds of cost and difficulty, and those started to be retired in favour of more Mark III's. Coupling the two-car sets together wasn't possible because of the use of platform edge doors in the underground stations. This is how a four-car Mark II set looks like in Kuala Lumpur:
  7. Second MiWay bus fire in the same week! Crazy.
  8. Same experience I had on the R4 RapidBus in Vancouver. Was on the middle seat in the very back and during heavy braking I also did not move much. It's weird how MiWay appears to be the only operator that blocks that middle seat on the New Flyers and Novas, something that virtually no other operator does.
  9. Mind sharing the link or screenshots to the photos? Curious at how the interior is different. Given it's an XDE60 with the BAE HDS300, I expect it to be highly similar to Vancouver's RapidBuses.
  10. How would this work? Would Millennium line trains retake the Columbia to Lougheed section, terminating at new platforms at Columbia? If that becomes reality, then that actually makes some sense. Lougheed to Arbutus would be able to run at combined Expo Line frequencies (instead of being limited due to terminating Expo Line trains at Production Way), while Surrey gets much needed improved service.
  11. Some footage I got from the South Terminal last month
  12. It worked again shortly after I made that post, so that's why you didn't see any problems. Maybe it was on my end, but other websites loaded correctly when that problem occurred.
  13. Adding Pacific Coastal's Beechcraft 1900D
  14. I posted about this on the transit Vancouver discord but was never able to get a conclusive answer. I'd guess only time would tell, and see if they're installed once they're delivered. Hard to imagine how seatbelts could be installed on the current double decker seats. This regulation might affect Victoria although theirs run on city streets more often.
  15. Haven't posted to Flickr in a while, there's a lot! (link is an album)
  16. Is the Wiki login not working? Tried logging in but it's just stuck on the login page without going anywhere.
  17. Would love it if someone could come across them and get some photos. There's also photos of the EV demo, but it's the regular height version (like OC Transpo) https://twitter.com/ADLbus/status/1424973841739231232/photo/2
  18. Anyway, on the other hand there's a mention on the wiki of 2 electric double deckers on order. Since they haven't been built yet should the build year be 2021 instead of 2020?
  19. Interesting that it features seatbelts now. I wonder if this would be easy to refit on previous buses or not.
  20. Speaking of West Vancouver Blue Bus, do they order new buses on their own independently of TransLink, or does TransLink handles all bus orders which then allocates some to Blue Bus?
  21. Excitement? More like terror. People could get PTSD from that.
  22. The R4 won't be a trolley route because it needs to overtake the regular 41 buses, and there's only one set of trolley wires per direction.
  23. While the ridership on the RT doesn't really justify using both platforms at McCowan, I still think it's a great idea to use that "eastbound" platform at McCowan as drop off only, have the train pull into the tracks beyond it, then switch to the westbound platforms there for boarding, just like King George Station on the SkyTrain.
