  1. 2017 Garage Transfers and Storage Reactivations

    It isnt... It doesnt have compass reader either... Unless they have heen installed now.
  2. Collisions and Incidents thread

    Not in service i assume? It was in service today on two seperate 43 runs.
  3. New articulated for vancouver

    Can i suggest this thread be locked by admin? There is no purpose to it, and above and foremost, it seems the posts now are only relating to what is happening at VTC and nothing else.. there are appropriate threads for such posts, as mentioned previously in this thread.
  4. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    I believe it was a 15 Olympic Village interlined from that point onward to a 17 run.
  5. Confirmation of 8098 being transferred to Powell River .
  6. Powell River has picked up a D40LF in the old BC Transit scheme. I will try and figure out what unit it is.
  7. Ad-wrap reports

    Canada Line. Cars are paired together as 1×× & 2×× numbers.
  8. BYD Battery Electric Bus Demo (2017)

    Pleaae pardon my generation. We don't really know how to associate with people properly. Anyways.... I like the technology, of in motion charging, would be interesting to see that used on the 9, to see an extention to Brentwood Station without the expensive extention of trolley wires, and drivers would simply be detaching and reattaching poles at Boundary Loop.
  9. Vancouver Special Sightings

    Ive seen 19s depart from Joyce a few times. Overload trippers, short turns, ect. It happens.
  10. Assuming the trial goes as planned, you would see deckers on any and all routes that can accommodate them, assuming there are no height restrictions, this seems to be the only model (Enviro 500) that TransLink is looking at to the replace Orions. With that being said, my assumption is that within a few years most of our Orions will be replaced by deckers. Leaving the 2008s and probably, to be allocated to one depot, and shuffling of the late refurbs around. Assuming that not ALL 2001 Orion V will be replaced in one complete order that is. Im not gonna start a speculation of where the deckers or remaining Orions would even end up.
  11. TransLink Future - Dream's and Aspirations

    People cant even read the destination half the time. If they arent reading the stickers on the window, they wont read it regardless.
  12. I agree, I look at it like this, you throw artics on, and the frequency remains the same. You boost the frequency, now you have more trips with more seating amongst the runs, which also adds more space for wheelchairs, strollers, and last but not least, bikes.
  13. Ad-wrap reports

    Sorry for the derailonment, (sort of) im just curious if the ad wrap mentions "lemon" as much as the fricken can does.... ("Does this contain any lemons?")
  14. New Flyer D40LF Retirement / Storage watch

    Not to be a poor sport, but word around is that TRAMS has no current intentions on preserving 7115. My speculation is that chances are probably higher for an 2000 or 2001 unit, if and when the time ever comes to preserve a D40LF. Maybe somebody has enough flow saved up somewhere to personally buy it... Thats the only chance i see of this bus having a future after CMBC has fulfilled the need for her.
