  1. This isn't /r/cptdb filled with shitposting. Welcome to a discussion board. Also, FTFY=FIFY, Fixed That/It For You.
  2. Just updating this thread for future reference: - 17522 in service as of 6/18 - 17526, 17527, 17535 in service as of 6/19
  3. Bay 5 does exist. On-street stop for the 43 UBC. At the time of this posting, looking at TL's NextBus map, the next 19 to service the stop at EB Kingsway FS Joyce St is another ~30 minutes away. 19's are also running from 10-45 minutes late according to T-Comm, therefore it would make sense to see an artic running a 19 to alleviate pressure on the 19's running behind.
  4. Currently, I would assume layover space and the bus bays at Metrotown affects the viability of having artics. But when the new on-street loop opens, we could see artics being used.
  5. Hope you all got yours Happy 150th Canada.
  6. 16216 now in service as expected.
  7. 16203 is out as well doing 95/145's
  8. And did not read the page before- apologies.
  9. 16051 in service this late afternoon or evening. It appears it took over for another coach, did not see it this morning on T-Comm.
  10. It will be fixed soon, patience is a virtue...
  11. Oh no not the NFI MiDi. TransLink refers to a certain HandyDART bus size a Midi. Unsure if the cutaway chassis is low-floor or not, the RFP specifies either a lift or ramp for the mobility aid.
  12. The order of 26 XDE60's are 1:1 replacements of D60LF's. The supposed "expansion" you claim is by means of deferred retirements. Unless the option of 75 total 60' articulated units are replacements for something else (Orions?), those units will then be towards service expansion.
  13. RFP Q17-025 for additional HandyDART vehicles released on February 27th. The initial supply of 35 HandyDART vehicles. Delivery of 13 vehicles to arrive no later than December 15, 2017. Options for an additional 123 vehicles. 27 Micro Vehicles 8 Midi Vehicles Options for Micro are 70 total, 40 in 2018 and 30 in 2019 Options for Midi are 40 total, 20 each for 2018 and 2019 More options later to come I would assume.
  14. With Addendum No. 3, a few revisions have been made. Just a few notes below: The West Vancouver order has been expanded to include options for another 10 units, 5 each for 2018 and 2019. No changes to the original 94 units and 59 options for TransLink. A white destination sign and an operator barrier have been added only as optional items.
  15. Only got around to reading the RFP and the Excel spreadsheets just now. Nothing new, just small tidbits. Form B Price of Work 52 diesel units highlighted for the 2017 order. First production vehicle and 51 vehicles arriving no later than April 30 and August 31, 2018, respectively. Options are 20 units for 2018 and 55 units for 2019, with the diesel or hybrid option. Included in the spreadsheet are some optional items I found interesting: A white destination sign, a Cummins X12 engine and an operator barrier.
